fter watching the film The Bucket List with perennial stars Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson, I took time to evaluate my own goals in life and decided it was time to create a list of my own. This essay is an opportunity for me to share my own list as a way of introducing myself to this community. However, this project is interactive. It is my opportunity to meet you, as well. So I appreciate any feedback, especially in the form of your own Bucket List aspirations.
My bucket list primarily consists of travel. I would like to visit every continent and every state in the United States. The United States part is almost done, with only Alaska remaining on the list. The Continents is a bit more complicated. The cost will have to be spread over the next decade, but I have my first trip planned for Egypt (Africa) next month. I have been to Europe and Asia (and of course, North America). I'm not so sure about Antarctica.
My bucket list has sub-sets, too. When I get to Egypt, there are several experiences I do not want to miss. I am not going to shell out the money for a trip like this and then scrimp to the point that I miss the experience. I have set aside the funds to do, at the very least, the items on my bucket list. These include a boat ride on the Nile (probably a dinner cruise), riding a camel, visiting the Sphinx and then a day trip to a nearby historical site. I will also try to squeeze in as many museums and other historical attractions that I can fit in.
For my South America adventure, I want to get Dive Certified (I have been snorkeling...to include Hanauma Bay in Hawaii). I would like to visit Maccu Picchu and the Galapagos, too. For Australia, I would like to visit the Outback on an adventure, take in some cultural events and spend some time in the sun. Maybe a side trip to New Zealand would be a nice way to top off that trip. At some point I want to return to Africa for a Kenyan Safari trip, I want to take a lengthy cruise, I would like to spend a week in Greece and maybe a trip to Jerusalem. Everything after that will be icing on the cake.
Now that I have shared my Bucket List, let me hear about YOURS!
