So what do you plan on doing before you kick the bucket?
Have you put much thought into it? I have. There are many things I want to do before I kick the bucket so I have had to break my list up list of ten.
In 2014, I completed by first Bucket List, and I am happy to say I set those goals and achieved them.
I decided to create a new Bucket List of things I want to see and do. I am hoping to complete this list before I turn 40 – this gives me about 7 years to go.
There are so many things I want to see so I narrowed them down to my Top 10.
1. Aurora Borealis
Before I kick the bucket, I want to see the Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights.
They are best seen in the winter time in Norway, Finland and Sweden.
The Northern Lights are collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere, seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres.
They are known as ‘Aurora borealis‘ in the north and ‘Aurora australis’ in the south.
Auroral displays appear in many colours although pale green and pink are the most common.
2. Christ The Redeemer
This statue of Jesus stands some 38 meters tall, atop the Corcovado mountain overlooking Rio de Janeiro.
Designed by Brazilian Heitor da Silva Costa and created by French sculptor Paul Landowski.
3. Name A Star
Now why would I want to do this before I kick the bucket? Even though I don’t understand it all, I am in awe of stars and the galaxy.
Civilizations around the world have named stars, planets, and constellations.
Now you can name one for yourself, friends, and family through the star registry.
4. Float In The Dead Sea
The Dead Sea – yes before I kick the bucket and am dead, I would love to float here.
The Dead Sea, also known as the Salt Sea, is a salt lake bordering Jordan to the east and Israel and the West Bank to the west.
The unusually high salt concentration means that people can easily float in the Dead Sea.
5. Scuba Dive The Great Barrier Reef
Maybe I should go snorkeling…that would be more appropriate for a novice like me who has never been Scuba Diving.
The Great Barrier Reef is considered to be the most beautiful reef in the world.
The reef sites are selected for their abundance of marine life and diversity of healthy corals.
6. Save A Life
Whether by donating blood or organs, this one is self-explanatory as to why it is a great thing to do.
Why let someone kick the bucket when given the opportunity to save them?
7. Go Skydiving
I don’t expect to do this more than once.
Neither do I have the desire solo skydive, so tandem skydiving would be best for me.
The professional skydiver/instructor does all the work and I just hang along for the ride!
8. Own My Own Business
I would love to own my own business in order to do what I love on a daily basis.
Set my own work and life balance, choosing the people I work with, but most of all, having more time for my son.
9. Visit Every Continent
This is definitely one I am dying (no pun intended) to complete before I kick the bucket, or before turning 40!
I have 4 out of 7 so far. Still have Antarctica, Australia, and South America to complete.
10. Hang From Toronto’s CN Tower
Toronto’s tallest attraction is a great option for people like me seeking a thrill. from 356 meters – 1,168 feet above the ground.
Have you been to any of these places? Done any of these things and crossed them off your bucket list?
