My Bucket

Here are some of the adventures to do, goals to accomplish, sites to see, people to meet, and places to go that I plan to do at some point in this life of mine 🙂

And I’ll start off with the very event that prompted me to actually write these goals down:

  1. See Bomba de Tiempo live in Buenos Aires, Argentina (Click here to see that post that really inspired me and see what its all about. No really, don’t keep reading this list, click here. You’ll thank me (and the Art of Backpacking) later.)
  2. Zipline in Costa Rica.  (March 2013!)
  3. Visit the Pyramids in Egypt.
  4. See the Red Sea.
  5. See the Eiffel Tower (all lit up at night too!)
  6. Walk the Great Wall of China (or sled… thanks Beyonce).
  7.  Go on Win the Amazing Race.

  1. Well the only one I’ve made progress on is #16… which means most of the others are on hold lol. The only issue is that this first year hasn’t been free – but I’ve got a fellowship lined up (hopefully!) to pay for the second year.

  2. Whoa, #16 is quite an accomplishment. When you have that squared away, you’ll have to share the details. Good luck with the rest of your goals.
