I’ve Finally Made My Bucket List… Round 1.

April 27, 2015

My Big Arse Bucket List

I have been mulling over this bucket list for quite some time.  One of the biggest frustrations I had in putting it together is that I felt there was so much I don’t know about the world.  I kept pouring over bucket list ideas and lists of must-see places before you die- and the world seems so big, so rich with opportunity and vast…how could I ever assemble a list that’s comprehensive and complete at this point of my life, when I haven’t even utilized my passport before?

Yes, I seriously haven’t even used a passport.  I’ve been all over the country- to pretty much every state aside from Hawaii and Alaska. I’ve been to Canada and Mexico before a passport was required…but Mexico was Tijuana with a friend’s family and I would not recommend it, nor would I really count that as representative in the least of the awesome country that is Mexico…but due to limited international travel to draw upon, it is here for reference.

With a furrowed brow and a cold beer, I compiled a somewhat un-comprehensive bucket list, which will surely need revisions and additions as I learn more about the world.  Here is my first round.  I would absolutely love your suggestions of amazing things that should be added to my list so I can start tackling them!



Fun & Travel:





I feel there is so much more on my list that I should do- but I think this is a good first attempt. There is so much to see in the world- I will need to add a bunch to this list once I figure out what else I want to do!  I have been looking over other people’s bucket lists for ideas, so I think I’ll have to keep pouring over them to get a good, comprehensive list.  I am obsessed with looking over bucket lists at the moment- so if you know of any good sites to get more ideas, let me know!

    I love some of the things on your list 🙂 I’ve been mulling over recently what I’d like to achieve/experience, so might use your idea and compile a list! Are you going to update your list when you’ve completed something? 🙂

  2. What an awesome list! I love it all!

    I love your bucket list! I’m in the middle of updating mine and it’s actually a ton of fun to create.

    I really appreciate how you see the world as a big open place ready to be explored. Even before having a baby I didn’t see it that way. I will be living vicariously through you during your adventures 🙂

    Love your list and you view of the world. If we weren’t already friends, I would put on my bucket list “become friends with the amazing Shannyn”. Keep exploring

    What a great list. I will be borrowing some as those on your list have never crossed my mind but are really interesting. Sharing with you mine, I have started a little backyard garden and have been growing my own produce. Since it is a nature thing, I have also decided to segregate recyclable stuff to help Mother Earth in my own little way. Plus I have been working to lessen my use of any plastic products.

    I like ‘Author a book’ being on your list. You have a very inspiring story the world is yet to see.
