Ticked off the Bucket List

Since I returned from Morroco and have been talking about my trip, a lot of people have described the trip as kind of a "bucket list" trip. Which I would probably agree with. I got thinking about other bucket list type things I've done and I realised I've had some AMAZING experiences throughout my travels. I loved thinking about all my trips and how LUCKY I am to have been able to do all of these things, so I really wanted to share some of my favourites with you!

  • Visited the Holy Land - one of the things I am most grateful to have experienced, especially given the turbulance at the moment.
  • Received a blessing from a Shaman in a Mexican forest - don't even ask!
  • Climbed Chichen Itza - they closed it off to the public the following year!
  • Swam with dolphins - not something I would do again or encourage as obviously there are moral and ethical issues with this, but nonetheless it's still on many people's bucketlist
  • Interrailed around Europe - read all about that here, it was bloody amazing!!
  • Trekked camels into, then slept in the Sahara Desert
  • Watched Eurovision in the host city, Vienna - completely by accident but oh my god what an experience!
  • Visited Auchwitz - one thing EVERYONE needs to do in their life, without a doubt
  • Saw the lovelock bridge in Paris - just before they took it down :(
  • Visited Oradour-sur-glane - maybe not on your bucketlist if you're not a die-hard history buff like my dad who took me, but it should be. Just wow
  • Mushed huskies & rode a sleigh pulled by reindeer in Finland -
  • Hogmanay & Edinburgh Street party - no one does New Years Eve like the Scots!
  • Stayed on a boat in Amsterdam's canals - so bizarre and inconvenient, but so fun
  • Disneyland Paris & Florida - for a Disney enthusiast, this is it.

It's my goal to keep travelling and adding to these experiences (ew I sound so pretentious and gap yaah), rather than just going on holiday and lounging by the pool. Yeah you come home relaxed with a cracking tan and hotdog leg pics to boot, but, to me, that's not enough! Of course it's great sometimes, don't get me wrong and if that is your thing then please don't take offense. When I get over my fear and jump on a plane after spending hundreds of pounds on flights and hotels - I want to come home having really experienced something. Something special, maybe off the beaten tracks. But that's just me,

What's your favourite thing you've ever done on your travels? Or even at home! There are plenty of incredible things to experience in our beautiful countries!

  1. Wow, it sounds like you've had some fab experiences - I really want to go to Auschwitz, it sounds like such a humbling experience.
    My favourite thing I've done on my travels was probably going on safari in South Africa and seeing leopards in the wild - amazing ♥

  3. What an amazing trip! I love your approach to travel and getting the most out of your experiences. Auchwitz is definitely on my bucketlist, I've heard from other people as well that said it was quite emotional. One of my favorite things I've done is swim with Dolphins in Hawaii! We got to float in the ocean as they swam by and it was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.
