Bucket List Publications’s Ultimate Life Bucket List

BLP Background

Some people create a bucket list because they are dying; I created one because I Collage Travel
want to live!

What’s on your bucket list? You can submit your bucket list or your bucket list adventures to Bucket List Publications or info@bucketlistpublications.com for publication. Share your goals and find inspiration in the accomplishments of others.

The more unrealistic we are with our dreams and goals, the more we’re able to achieve!

My life list is ever-changing, always growing; that’s why I create a yearly list. My 2012 Bucket List included things like fly a jetpack, swim with whale sharks, experience aerobatics in a biplane, and delivery my baby girl.  With only a few items left, I’ve been thinking about my 2013 list.

Overall, these are the things I’d like to accomplish in my life. I usually choose from these each year and add new ones as I see fit.

“The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences.”

– Eleanor Roosevelt

    You need to add Angkor Wat in Cambodia on your list of places to see. It is amazing and to imagine that it was completely lost to the world for almost 1000 years…

  2. Sas says:

    You can’t visit England and Scotland but not come to Wales. It’s a beautiful country, and totally different to neighbouring England.

    1. Lesley says:

      You’re right; Whales totally needs to be added. I don’t know how I missed it. 🙂

  3. Meg B says:

    I’ve always thought of travel bucket lists as places…but I like the way you’ve added experiences as well. Off I go to re-do my bucket list yet again 🙂

    1. Lesley says:
