My Ultimate Bucket List

There is so much I want to do and see in the world. I did try to plan my bucket list by each year, but then I would overestimate or underestimate where I would go or what I would do in each year.

I’m the sort of person who does like some sort of planning, but I like being spontaneous. I like the idea of travelling and making plans while you travel. I like it when a trip takes an unexpected turn or it gets extended. Last year, I ended up extending my USA trip shortly before it was due to end for another a week. I got to explore more places in Los Angeles, including Santa Monica, Venice Beach, Anaheim, Harry Potter World at Universal Studios and the Warner Bros Studios.

I decided to create my ultimate bucket list. It contains places I want to go to and experiences I want to have during my lifetime. This way I can add things as I think of them cross out as I go, rather than pigeonhole by a specific year.

Before I went for the first time when I was 21, New York was at the top of every bucket list I had and the list of experiences I wanted to do there. I have now been to New York three times, but there is still plenty of things that I want to do there so it’s on the list!
