My Bucket List

Hey guys,

I’ve had a growing list tucked away for the last couple of years and thought it was time to share it so you can gain a little insight to the sort of things I want to do. Hopefully I can influence and inspire you guys to check out of some of the things and in turn you can help me add to the list with your own adventures. It’s not just a list of sights I want to see but also things I’d love to learn. I never put it in any particular order and it’s certainly not a strict travel plan but a few things that I think if I get the chance I’ll be jumping all over it. Would love to hear some of your highlights and hopefully we can grow this list together.

  1. Awesome Bucket List!
    For things to add google Swimming with whales in Tonga, Burning Man USA, the Rickshaw Run India, Elephant Nature Park Thailand, The Devil’s Pool Victoria Falls Zambia, Gorilla Trekking Rwanda or Uganda and Tree climbing Goats Morocco.
    I’ve only done one of the above, but they are all on my list :)

  7. What an amazing list :) but I miss Costa Rica: you can see whales, the volcano Arenal (active) and you must do Zipling there ,200 meters over the rainforest, living into the wild at http://www.tipijungla.com …. Bali for surfing and drink “kopi luwak”…. Bangkok for eating insects. We wish you so much fun to complete your list!!! Tascha & Patrick

  8. I highly recommend Easter Island! It’s one of the most remote and unique places I’ve seen. And if you haven’t seen Yellowstone National Park in the US, it’s amazing.
