  3. This is great! After reading your blog it inspired me to start my own bucketlist! Which I then decided to start my own blog to document my many adventures! It was a great decision and since I've been telling people about my own list many more opportunities have presented themselves as friends want to help me check off my list one by one!

    • I’m excited for you, and for me because now I have another bucket list blog to read :)
      I’m looking forward to keeping up with your adventures & hope your list changes your life, like it did mine!

  4. Wow, Anette that is quiet spectacular Bucket List! I myself have one and all the time adding some new stuff, but you really did some thinking! Really great, maybe over Christmas when I have a bit more time I will enlarge mins, as it looks quiet purely next to yours :)
    Good luck with making it happen, Im sure you will! :0

    • Thanks! My bucket list is just so large because I am very forgetful. If I don’t immediately write it down, it vanishes from my brain ;)

  5. Great list! I hope to add many of these to mine someday. I’m having fun with our little “Summer Bucket List” with my 2 small boys this summer, but would love to make something like this with them when they get to be a bot older and can do more!

    • I think the family Summer bucket lists are such a fun way to spend the season! And I love that you are thinking about creating on for when they get older too :)

  10. I was diagnosed with Cancer a month ago, not sad, I’m okay with it. I sat here trying to think up a Bucket list and could not come up with much. Been a person satisfied with my life but now am thinking about something a little more exciting than anything I have ever thought of doing. You have given me some great ideas, will have to return here when I get mine written. Thank you, thank you so much! I’m excited to get started.

    Reply
    • Thank you for sharing a part of your story with me. I am incredibly inspired by hearing that you have been diagnosed with Cancer, yet have made a point to find something to get excited about. Please share your list with me when it is completed, I would love to see what you have selected! Best Adventures, XOXOX

  11. It’ funny but I have done almost everything on your list under the Creative ideas…and have had a lot of fun doing them.

  12. I love these lists, they cheer me up.
    The reality is that by the time you are ill, finances or health issues curtail any desires to make it suddenly come true. I’m quite ill, and happily I have done more than most in my short lifetime.
    Forget bucket lists, do it now with a life list.

    • I am happy to hear that you have had many great experiences in your lifetime. I do agree that we shouldn’t put our dreams off until “later”, because you don’t know what will be the circumstances later.

  13. Hi – great list! I found many new ideas for mine – and was gratified to see how many I have already done!

    One other comment: #494 and #496 both say “Ride in a gondola.” Was one of them supposed to be some other sort of ride? (There’s so many listed already that I can’t think of something else that ‘should’ be there ….)

  14. You have a great list! I was checking out your list for something my mother and her twin sister can do as they celebrate their 90th birthday this August. I thought about something I didn’t see on your list…Be In A Parade! I think they would have a ball and it would definitely be memorable for them and us.

  15. I started my own list but wasn’t as long as this one that I read I added some of the ideas from the list to my own bucket list a lot of great ideas

  17. Wow great list! It got a lot of my bucket list ideas going..The pictures really add a lot to this post as well. Started my own bucket list on my site and working my way through it. Visiting Acadia National Park this summer which should be excellent to get some bucket list items off my list!

  18. Great list of ideas! Will help with planning our next vacation. Some were obvious, others were a bit more, “Oh! Why didn’t I think of that!”

  19. Nooooooo please don’t ride elephants! They are wild animals and they’re put through so much abuse when they’re being “trained”. See these articles as examples: https://expertvagabond.com/elephants-in-thailand/
    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.thedodo.com/amphtml/elephant-rides-trek-1132645600.html

    Actually any wild animal experience needs to be treated with extreme caution – do thorough background checks to be sure the animals aren’t being mistreated behind the scenes in order to make them behave in ways that aren’t natural to them.

    Wanting to have amazing experiences is great, but there are so many amazing experiences that don’t involve torturing baby animals (or adult animals, for that matter)! Maybe visiting an elephant sanctuary (again, with background checks) would be a good alternative?

  20. I’ve done about 70 of them, and my next blood donation will be #98… yes, I’ve donated over 12 gallons of blood.

    Add: work an election (I’ve missed working 4 elections in the last 50 years – and 3 were due to hospitalization, one I was out of he country.

    Add: Ride in a jet fighter. Not cheap, but worth it.
