Default The Bucket List

Which of the popular ones have you already done?

What else is on yours?



These are the Top 10 from bucketlist.net (I'm including destinations and activities... but not things like 'get a tattoo' or 'run a marathon').

1. See the Northern Lights
2. Skydive
3. Swim with dolphins
4. Go on a cruise
5. Ride an elephant (er, not in a circus, I assume)
6. Go zip lining
7. Do scuba diving
8. Visit the Pyramids
9. White water rafting
10. Visit the grand Canyon


other popular ones include a gondola ride in Venice, visiting the Great Wall of China, safari on the Serengeti or Masai Mara, gamble in Las Vegas, Machu Picchu, Petra, Niagara, Taj Mahal, Colloseum etc.

I've done a river cruise on the Danube but that was about it.

Yes to the above, a skydive is the only thing I really want to do from the remaining.

1. See the Northern Lights - half done; they were faint and partly cloud-obscured. does it count?
2. Skydive - no. and unlikely to ever!
3. Swim with dolphins - no. was out on a tiny boat along with the dolphins in Philippines but they wouldn't allow us to swim with them.
4. Go on a cruise - cruised down the Nile rom Luxor to Aswan.
5. Ride an elephant (er, not in a circus, I assume) - yes, in Zimbabwe.
6. Go zip lining - Nope, and will never.
7. Do scuba diving - Yup!
8. Visit the Pyramids - yes, twice.
9. White water rafting - Never did, never will.
10. Visit the grand Canyon - Not yet, but would like to.


Have gone on safari on the masai mara and in south africa; have been walking with lions; swam with sea turtles; climbed Vesuvius; trekked baboons in the Simien mountains..

Would love to:
Walk part of the Great Wall
Whale-watching off the Alaskan coast
Trans-Siberian railway
Visit the Gorillas - annoying I've worked in locations close to them but had no time to visit.
Visit Venice and fair Verona (and ideally see outdoor R&J)
Visit the Hindu Kush
Maybe hand-gliding? (i'm generally not that adventurous..)
Would love to drive across Canada and the US

I want to climb Kilimanjaro before I die.
Might wait till I'm 35.

Anyone ever walked the Camino?
