The Bucketlist

Crossing Off the Bucketlist - Travel, Adventures, and More!

Being a kid at heart, I have always kept a bucketlist.  I’m looking forward to the days that I’d be able to experience them and cross them off.  Luckily for me, I’ve already crossed off some items.

*For more photos of our travels and adventures, visit my Instagram!

1.  See the Northern Lights

It has always been my dream to see the Northern Lights.  I consider myself lucky for witnessing it in two different destinations (Yellowknife, Canada and on our flight Iceland), but I still haven’t gotten enough of.  I don’t think I will ever get enough of it!

2.  Snow

You read it right! Growing up in a tropical country, it’s common to dream of seeing the snow and having a white Christmas.  We only experience it through movies.  I remember my first time of snow, I was in Korea with my friends. We were so crazy happy that we were literally jumping up and down and catching all the snowflakes we can get with our hands and faces. LOL  Now that we’ve moved to Canada, it’s an endless supply of snow!

Baby, it’s cold outside 🎶❄ #frozenlake

3.  Take a trip to Bahamas

Out of all the beach vacations we’ve had, Bahamas has the best water I have seen so far!  It’s clear turquoise waters is perfect for snorkeling.

I don’t mind this much blue 💙

4.  Go skiing and snowboarding

After writing this in my bucketlist, I have only tried skiing and snowboarding once.  It’s definitely harder than I expected and I have to gather my courage to try it again!

Tried snowboarding for the first time! Do you prefer skiing or snowboarding? 🏂⛷

5.  Go to Iceland

I think Iceland should be in everyone’s bucketlist.  The beauty of nature in Iceland is beyond comparison!

We didn’t see this many icebergs the last time we were here! ❄

9.  Go skydiving – Never mind, I love life too much!

9.  Ride a submarine

10.  Fly First Class

Thanks to Mr. C, I was able to experience flying in first class!  In one of my solo international flights, he booked me a first class ticket to ease the stress of a long-haul flight.

11.  Eurotrip – London, Italy, Amsterdam, Belgium, Portugal

After writing this in my bucketlist, we traveled to Amsterdam, Belgium, and Portugal.  I’m still waiting for our London and Italy trips before I could cross this off! 🙂

12.  Go on a cruise

13.  Malaysia and Thailand (Spa)

14.  Watch a Lantern Festival

15.  Dine at any Michelin star restaurant of Chef Ramsay and meet him

16.  Spontaneously book a flight

The thrill of spontaneously booking a flight is addictive!  It all started when we decided to book a flight to Yellowknife just to see the Northern Lights.

17.  Learn to swim in the beach without goggles and lifevest

There’s always a first time, right?  This one was crossed out in Bahamas! 🙂 It felt so liberating when we were able to snorkel without a lifevest.  

18.  Fly on a helicopter 

19.  Fly an ultralight

20.  Witness a meteor shower 

This one’s a big adventure complete with the pick-up truck, blanket, and pillows!

21.  Swimming with sharks

I didn’t think I would be including “swimming with the sharks” in my bucketlist but, guess what, we did it!

22.  Learn a third language (maybe French)

23.  Start a charity

24.  Start a business

25.  Getting featured in TV or magazine 

26.  Getting asked for an ID at age 40 

27.  Being part of Harry Potter’s world and drinking that BUTTERBEER

I didn’t know that it was remotely possible until I went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Orlando. ♥

From time to time, new items get added to my list.  I love that my bucketlist inspires me to do more.  It also keeps me dreaming which is a good thing, right?

Tell me, what’s in your bucketlist? 🙂
