I thought I’d mix it up a little today, and share just ten (bearing in mind I’ve covered four A4 pages before now, no jk) of the things on my Bucket List; I think I wanted to do this because well…there’s so much I want to do, and I figured putting them on here would give me some encouragement to crack on and get them done! I’ve also picked some of the more realistic ones off the list – like I’m not saying ‘hugging a koala’ will never happen, but…y’know.
Stargaze in Dartmoor National Park (Devon, UK)
I’ve been to Dartmoor before and it’s honestly one of the most naturally beautiful places ever – green fields for miles, wild – but friendly – horses, lakes, streams, Instagram-worthy wooden bridges… picturesque beyond words. So I obvs have to camp under the stars now to complete my experience!
Have a photoshoot in Paris
…Ok so not an actual photoshoot, more of a hey boyfriend here’s my camera, pls take pictures of me whilst I pose in front of the Eiffel Tower like a complete lemon..kinda thing. I’ve always dreamt about Paris anyway bc it’s uber dreamy and Audrey Hepburn said it was a good idea so y’know, Audrey knows.
See the Northern Lights in Iceland
How freaking pretty though. I’m not entirely sure I need to say much more, apart from I need to go. It just looks like magic!
Learn to drive
If you read my ‘25 Facts About Me‘ you’ll know I had a whole five lessons when I was 19 – I really didn’t want to learn then, but I do now. Also then I can justify buying a VW Campervan and painting flowers all over it, HAPPY DAYS.
The castle, the zoo! There’s something about Scotland calling my name. Also there are koalas at the zoo. See my train of thought here? I wanna hug, dammit!
Run a Marathon
Although I go running, I wouldn’t class myself as a ‘runner’ and I’d like to get to the point where I can run a 10k or something for MIND bc they’re basically awesome.
Ride a Hot Air Balloon
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon! It HAS to be a Summer’s eve or during a sunset, and with cracking views.
On a side note, how the f*ck do they get you back on the ground?!
Hold a Tarantula
If you have a fear of spiders too, I’M SORRY and I understand if you want to press that big cross in the right hand corner & steer clear of me for good – but hold on; the reason this is on here – despite the fact it gives me the heebie jeebies just to look at the bloody thing – is it’s a fear I want to conquer. Last year I held a snake, which I’d previously feared (don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I’d hold a cuddle party for them now), so I figure if I can do that… then why can’t I do this?
I’ve pretty much been writing ever since I can remember – right from small, I’d sit and write poetry, small stories, screenplays, I kept my own diary for nearly ten years… & now I blog! I just love it, & to be published one day is the ultimate dream!
Meet Dave Grohl & the Foo Fighters
Ok so there had to be one completely unrealistic never-gonna-happen one on here didn’t there! Dave is pretty much an idol for me – he’s genuine, humble and an all round inspo, plus he can rock the undercrackers off of any stadium. The Foos have gotten me through a lot of stages in my life, so y’know… I love ’em.
Hey a girl can dream right?!
& that’s my ten! PLEASE pop down below some of the things on your bucket list, I’d genuinely love to know! & let me know if you’ve done or want to do any of the things on my list!
