Like Hana Ticha, I would say I’m pretty satisfied with my life, and really appreciate the good fortune I’ve had to be able to do the things I’ve done. I’ve written about this before, and I would still say that if I die tomorrow, I’d be happy with the life I’ve lived. Nevertheless, there are still a few things I’d like to do, so here’s my contribution to Hana’s #bucketlistchallenge:
- Have a family.
- Fly in a hot air balloon, preferably in Egypt – this is something I’ve wanted to do since we made travel brochures as a school holiday homework when I was 11!
- Learn to play a musical instrument.
- Have two consecutive months when I don’t have to see a health professional about anything.
- See the curvature of the Earth from space – not sure how achievable that one is, but that’s why it’s a bucket list!
- See the lava of a volcano – I was very excited when I saw smoking volcanoes for the first time as I flew to Malta this summer.
- Take the Trans-Siberian Express.
- Learn Arabic.
- Learn an Indian language – Hindi, Urdu or Punjabi probably. When I was very young, the library my mum worked at had lots of bilingual children’s books, and I remember being fascinated by the different scripts there.
- Go on a walking holiday.
The first 5 were pretty easy to come up with, the others required a little more thought 🙂 What would your bucket list look like?
