Weekly Bucket List Picks

Bucket Lists

As a wanderer at heart, I will always strive to see everything this world has to offer.  Even though bucket lists are seen in a morbid light, I like to keep one to remind myself of all the wonderful things I want to see and places I want to go.  Every week, I will showcase ten of the items on my list.

1.  Visit all the National Parks in the United States.

I love national parks and would love to visit every single one in the world, but for the time being, I’ll make my goal be visiting all of them within the United States.  This next year road-tripping around the US  will knock many of them out of the way including, but not limited to : Arches, Crater Lake, Death Valley, Denali, Grand Canyon, and Glacier.

Bucket Lists

2.  Travel overland from North America to the tip of South America.

A very time-consuming bucket list item, but this would be one epic trip.  I hope to be able to accomplish this one day.

3.  See polar bears in the wild.

Hoping to make this happen while we are in Alaska this upcoming winter.

4.  Visit the Four Corners Monument.

You can stand not only in two places at once, but four!  A simple item for the list, but still fun.

5.  Watch baby sea turtles hatch.

Because who wouldn’t want to see this?!

6.  Go rappelling.

So, I’ve never been rappelling at all.  I know, horrible.  I hope to change that soon.  Like on this road trip soon.

Bucket Lists

7.  Complete the Pacific Crest Trail by horse.

So, walking the entire PCT is a big dream of mine, but once I complete that, I would love to complete the trail by horse.  It’s not nearly as common as hiking it, but adventurous nonetheless.  I actually plan on my first horse I ever get to be trail worthy enough for the PCT.

8.  See Angel Falls in Venezuela.

I have a slight obsession with waterfalls.

9.  See hippos in the wild.

My absolute favorite animal ever.  As dangerous as they are, I want to see them in the wild anyway.

Bucket Lists

10.  Take a cooking class in Italy.

Because, yes.

    OK, that’s not fair. I tried to stand in 2 countries at once and you’re stealing my thunder with 4 states! Totally want to do that. And the polar bears and the turtles. I feel this is a really good idea to be posting about!

  2. Great list, but I have sadly not done a single thing on it. I came really close to 4 Corners a few years ago. It would have been a 3 hour detour, and my hubby wasn’t too keen on that. He claimed he was going to draw a fake 4 corners in a Colorado parking lot and tell the kids that’s where we were.

  3. Molly S

    Great list! I’ve done four corners, but that’s it – I’ve love to do the road trip from North to South America.

  4. Mandie @ RamblingMandie

    Love it!! I’ve stood at the four corners, went rappelling in Montana & plan to do a national parks road trip through the US this spring. πŸ™‚

  5. Great bucket list! I have done/ seen no. 3, 5, 6 and 10. So still plenty left! πŸ™‚ That’s what I love about traveling, it is so much to see and do, and my bucket list just keep growing for every blog post I read. πŸ™‚

  6. Amy Lynne Hayes

    These all sound like amazing adventures!! The national parks would be quite a feat, but then so would traveling to the tip of South America! I’ve seen sea turtles eggs being laid here in Florida, and had the chance to go rappelling, but I’m afraid of heights so I chickened out. In all fairness I WAS in middle school lol. Good luck checking all of these off your list!

  7. Sabina

    I could get behind all of these – especially the ones involving animals. I really miss horseback riding so that was my favourite on the list! Thanks for the inspiration πŸ™‚

  8. Annika - Live Laugh Explore

    Oh wow, what a list! I love it, so many great trips. I would love to join you for the horseback riding part!! And a cooking class in Italy -Definitely. Yum.

  9. Penny @ Travelling Penster

    Great list! I’ve travelled overland through Central America, and hope to make it down overland through South America soon! Overlanding is a great way to travel. Takes time, but you see and experience so much πŸ™‚

  10. Your list of things that you want to do make me want to add things to the list of things that I want to do. Ever since I saw the 4 Corners Monument on Breaking Bad, I knew I wanted to visit it! Happy and safe travels as you fulfill things on your wish list!

  11. Great picks! Some are on my list too (rapelling down a waterfall), but you also introduced me to some ones I’ve never thought of! I’ve love to do the PCT on horse too!!

  12. Good list and yeah who wouldn’t want to see sea turtles hatch, haha? We just saw 50+ hippos in the past few weeks in Africa:)

    I’d love to get to all the national parks in the U.S. but there are just so many of them!

  13. Yzzah

    Great list! I definitely would also lie to see those cuddly polar bears!

  14. Michael Huxley

    Outstanding picks! I think I may have to steal a few of them for my own list!

  15. Els

    National Parks are great! I had the chance to visit some of the western parks in the US (Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Death Valley) and would love to go back! They really show you the power and beauty of nature!

  16. 5. yeah exactly!! Who wouldn’t??
    I like that you have a lot of Wildlife watching in your bucket list, I do it too! especially polar bears πŸ™‚
