Bucket List

We’ve all, at some point, thought about that trip we want to take or that activity we want to do. But then, routine kicks in and we forget all about it. I’ll tell you a secret that you probably already know: you’re more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down than if you don’t.

Looking back, my first trip wasn’t part of any bucket list; in fact, I didn’t even have a list back then but the trip certainly became a trigger for me to have one. It opened my eyes to a new world that I, knew existed but, was oblivious to. So I started writing down the experiences I wanted to have in this new world and soon, I found myself fulfilling them, one by one. Now, the more I see of the world, the more of it I want to see.

“The world is big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.”

John Muir

Needless to say, the list – of places I want to visit, of adventures I want to go on, of challenges I want to take on, and more – has only grown with time. My Bucket List is ‘filled’ with experiences that will help me learn and grow as an individual and I can’t wait to cross them off the list. As you can see, it is already in progress. So, in no specific order, here’s what’s on my list:

1. Take a cruise to explore Antarctica
