25 Adventures Before 35

November 3, 2016

Without further ado, my semi-bucket list*.

*Semi-bucket list: A bucket list, but not really, because hopefully I have the opportunity to accomplish all of these things before I turn 35. No idea why I tried to make this definition look formal, because I 100% made it up in the last minute and a half. Anyways, that gives me another 17 years, which seems like ages (hello, year 2033). And yup, I had to use a calculator to do all of that. Talk about reasons I’m not a math student!

  1. Scuba diving or snorkelling.
  2. Go “down under” – live (temporarily) in Australia or New Zealand.
  3. Watch a geyser explode in Iceland.
  4. Hotsprings! There are some great ones in BC (hint, Mom)
  5. See Banff in Alberta, as well as the West Edmonton Mall!
  6. See the Northern Lights with my own eyes, hopefully in one of Canada’s territories (I’ve never been).
  7. Visit Mexico, Fiji, or Hawaii to see true tropical paradise.
  8. Ride a horse.
  9. Visit a Maritime province like Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, or New Brunswick. And eat lobster there. Put my feet into the Atlantic Ocean!
  10. Go to Greece and stand on their beautiful coastline.
  11. Do an aerial silks performance in front of an audience.
  12. Donate blood.
  13. Walk around inside the Great Pyramids of Giza in Egypt.
  14. Ride a hot air balloon.
  15. See the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
  16. Eat spaghetti, pizza, and gelato in Italy.
  17. Eat a bug?! I’d probably go with a BBQ cricket because I’m a wimp.
  18. Bake scones or drop biscuits from scratch.
  19. See Macchu Pichu in Peru.
  20. Bungee jump.
  21. See southeast Asia, perhaps Thailand?
  22. Ride a gondola in Venice, Italy.
  23. Skate on natural ice on a frozen pond or lake outside.
  24. Ride a hot air balloon.
  25. See some of the amazing animals of the Galapagos Islands.
Checked off the list recently-ish:
✓ Ride a motorcycle (done in Nepal!)
✓ Paraglide (also done in Nepal)
✓ Explore an underground cave (done in Horne Caves, Sunshine Coast)
