Bucket List

Jumping back in to the January blog-a-day (I told you I wouldn’t hit every day… I might miss the next few days too), today’s topic is “Bucket List”. I’ve never given this much thought before. Turns out most of mine center around travel experiences. No surprise there.

The fun part was, as I was thinking through possibilities, several of the things that came to mind were things I’ve already been incredibly blessed with doing. I guess I’m off to a good start.

Watching the sun rise over the Grand Canal in Venice in 2002.

Already checked off the list:
Watch the sun rise over the Grand Canal in Venice Hike the Grand Canyon
Eat a picnic lunch in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower
Live abroad
Backpack across Europe
Get on National TV (crowd shots during Leno, GMA, & MTV’s TRL!)
Tour the Holy Land
Go on a footsteps of Paul tour
Do mission work in a third-world county (Guatemala & Haiti)
Have a cool “how’d you meet your spouse” story (a tiny snippet of it is here)

Still to Come:
See Machu Picchu
Feed a giraffe
Stay at an all-inclusive resort somewhere
Ice skate in front of the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree
Learn to use a DSLR camera (starting on this now)
Travel to Australia
Get a couple’s massage on an exotic beach (is that super cheesy?)
Have kids, maybe adopting one
Visit an IJM field office
Go on a safari

So now all I can think about is taking a trip… where to next?

What’s on your bucket list?

  1. OOOOoooo… “eat a picnic lunch in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower”… that sounds magical!

    For the record… all-inclusive resorts are AMAZINGGGG!!! Totally do it. And you can knock off the couple’s massage on an exotic beach in the same vacay… that is not cheesy, it’s the best thing ever. And visit Australia? Let us know if you come down… we’ll come over there from NZ.

    Miss you lots, friend. Hope all is well. So stoked to have you writing with us when you can. Cheers.
