In the past I have never had a bucket list written down, it’s all been stored in my head so it has been fun to write and document what I have done and what I would like to do in the future.
This list is made up of the things I love, I don’t have activities like skydiving and bungee jumping, I hate heights and at this moment in time they are not something I want to push myself to do. I always said I wouldn’t zipline and go white water rafting but I found myself doing them on a trip to Peru, so maybe one day a skydive will make it on to the list. To me it’s a flexible list that I will keep updating as I find new things I want to do. In 2015 I visited 10 national parks in the USA, I have now added to the list that I want to visit all 59 US national parks, as the parks I saw were amazing.
If you have suggestions on things to do/places to visit I should add to my list, please send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org I am always looking for new adventures.
Here is my list:
Hot Air Balloon Ride – I did this in Egypt over The Valley of the Kings in 2007. Here is a picture of me flying the balloon. As I was travelling on my own I got the basket with the gas canisters, which meant I was in charge of the burners once we were off the ground and in the air. When the captain wanted us to go higher I had to hit the burner, was really not sure it was a good idea to trust me to keep us in the air!!

Death Road Bolivia – I cycled Death Road in September 2012
