Adventure Bucket Lists

If flying in a wing suit, scaling a glacier or going volcano boarding sounds like the perfect afternoon, than these lists are for you. Even if you are not an adrenaline junkie it’s fun to look through and see what seriously adventurous people will do.

Destination Bucket Lists

From Portland to Ibiza, the destination bucket lists focus on an individual fabulous city or country. How about adding ‘see the White Temple of Chiang Rai’ or ‘Eat Spam Musubi in Maui’ to your Things to do Before You Die list?

Food & Drink Bucket Lists

Being a restaurant owner and foodie, I am obsessed with foodie bucket lists. The more bizarre or unique the better. Eating bone marrow, dining at a molecular gastronomy restaurant or hunting for truffles would all be potential additions to the food section of your bucket list.

General Bucket Lists

    Hi Annette,

    What a list of lists!

    1: African Safari.

    2: Bora Bora.

    3: Antarctica.

    3 places I need to see on my journey around the world. We’re going from Fiji to Bali, then back home, but this would’ve been a nice jump off spot for Bora Bora. Just saw a Survivor show from an old season where contenders were in Bora Bora doing Survivor type stuff. Amazing place, with such stunning water colors.

    A safari is a safari, one of the neatest things you could do. The idea is so exciting, seeing wildlife in nature, not on TV, not in a zoo. Factor in the whole “in your face/outside of your tent” nature of some safaris and I find the idea beyond thrilling. Always a dream of mine.

    As for the great ice mass it simply fascinates me like few places. I love hot weather and don’t care for the cold but I’d make an exception for Antarctica.

    I’d add Patagonia to my list as a runner up, and could visit before or after Antarctica.

    Awesome list! Thanks Annette.

    Tweeting soon, and signing off from Savusavu, Fiji.

      Of your top three, I have only checked off an African Safari. It ranks as one of my favorite trips of all times because it was completely surreal being amongst all these animals in their natural habitat. I was on safari for four days and it never got old seeing hyenas cross your path, zebras protecting each other or lions hunting. Incredible!

      Antartica is also on my list and I’m not one for cold weather either. But, I’d make this one exception 🙂

    Huge collection of lists. So many things to do and just one life to do them all. I think I need one extra life.

    Great collection. I think African Safari is an unbelievable spot for wildlife safari. Thanks for this collection.
