I’ll be honest, I’ve never really been fond of the term ‘bucket list’. I wonder how it came to be. There are things I want to do, places I want to see. Are they bucket list things? I dunno. To me, they are things in a cloud bubble over my head waiting to be done.
So the other day the lovely Miss Bonnie Barton tagged me in a bucket list prompt and I couldn’t decline. Though I’m not a bucket list girl there is one thing that I’ve been dying to do for a long time and next month I’ll actually be doing it.
Since the death of my mom back in February of this year (dad died 5 years ago) I was fortunate enough to receive a nice inheritance. Not travel the world for the rest of my life kind of inheritance but nice enough so that I definitely can travel a wee bit.
And I’ve been doing just that. Last month I went across the US in an RV that was also a ‘bucket list’ thing. The whole trip was a fucking nightmare but I’m glad I did it nonetheless. You can read more about it here:
Then a few days after returning from that I was off to spend some time with my son in Canada. Definitely not a bucket list thing but I had business to take care of hugs and kisses to give out to my boy ❤
I’ve also gone ziplining, twice, something else I’ve wanted to do for forever.
But next month….
Next month is the trip of a lifetime for me. A friend and I are jetting off to Peru! Just typing that out gives me goosebumps. I can’t believe I’m finally doing it.
To say I’m not anxious and slightly concerned would be a lie. Traveling comes with many ups and downs. It can sometimes, ok usually, require you to have a shit ton of patience and a really good sense of humour.
Also, I’ve never traveled with this friend before and while I am definitely looking forward to jetting off with her, I’ll admit, I wonder what our time will be like. I have no doubt for the most part it will be amazing but you never know how people act when faced with difficult situations.
I love traveling and everything about it, even when I have to sleep in airports overnight. I don’t get too riled up about things like that. It is what it is. It’s all part of the fun of traveling.
Not everyone thinks like I do.
So off to Peru I go in July. One more place crossed off my list. After that I’ll be heading to a little town in Mexico to see what it’s like as a possible new place to maybe live in.
Hopefully in the fall I’ll be off to Panama for my birthday. All places on my ‘bucket list’ that I will be knocking off.
Stay tuned next month for pictures and hopefully amazing travel stories!
So what’s on your bucket list? OR, what was on your bucket list that you’ve recently crossed off? I’d love to hear it! Share below. And while I’m at it, I’ll tag a few peeps here to find out what their list is like too!
