Bucket List

This term “Bucket List” might sound cliché to many people, however, what they don’t realize is that everybody has one!

It doesn’t necessarily have to be travel-related. Your dreams just have to be on it. Like bungee jumping, flying in a hot air balloon, watching the Super Bowl in the stadium, learn another language, etc.

The term became famous by the 2007 film “The Bucket List”, with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. It comes from the expression “kick the bucket”, which means “to die”.

By the way, this movie has a beautiful and sentimental story. I definitely recommend it.

Anyway, I’m here today to share my neverending bucket list with you and inspire you to write down yours as well. Do you have any suggestions to add to my list? 🙂


“Now more than ever do I realize that I will never be content with a sedentary life, that I will always be haunted by thoughts of a sun-drenched elsewhere.”

Isabelle Eberhardt
