Recently I have rewritten my bucket list. I have had this list in some form or another for a long time, either written out or just as things in my head that I wanted to do. That’s why I included some items I have done already. Some of them are from even before I kept a blog, which is why the accomplished ones aren’t always clickable. There are also some awesome experiences that I left out of this list. If an experience didn’t come from a long desire that I had cherished for a longer time, I didn’t include them in this list. For example, these would be things like: riding an ostrich and elephant (not at the same time though), drink absinthe, see geysers, visit Thailand, Argentina and a ton of other countries.

From now on, if I check new items off my list, I will be sure to let you know.

    I have one of these lists in some childhood notebook. I’d love to find it to see how many things I’ve done already. I hope you can achieve all these wonderful things and that the list keeps expanding as you go. There’s nothing more motivating than having and achieving one’s goals in life. ♥

      Ohh you must look it up! It’s really fulfilling to know that quite a few of these items I am working on now, and I know I will accomplish them not far from now (yay!)

    I was just thinking the other day that lock picking might be a good skill to learn. :D
    I love your bucket list! Your blog definitely inspires me to live creatively, playfully and passionately.
    Thanks for the inspiration. :)

      I know right? I once had an article that explained how to lock pick, but I think I threw it away when cleaning once. Apparently you even have hobby clubs of people who come together to lock pick. that’s a bit too much for my taste. But to be able to open a simple lock would be pretty neat. Just for when there ever comes a movie-like scene where you just NEED to enter a place (or for the 10th time I locked myself out of the house) I will be able to get in ;)

    Wow, your list is quite detailed and categorized!!! I definitely want to travel, and do new creative projects like take a pottery throwing class, you have inspired me to actually right down a list.

    thanks for the inspiration as always :)

    Wat een gave lijst! Ik zou er zelf ook eens eentje moeten maken om mezelf eraan te herinneren dat je dromen niet moet uitstellen ;) Ik ben zelf na jaren sparen voor mijn droomreis vorig jaar naar IJsland vertrokken en ik kan nu nog altijd doorratelen over hoe adembenemend alles daar is. Wanneer je zelf ook gaat, vergeet vooral geen zonnecrème (ja, op IJsland kan het ook 20° worden!) en zet het epische Landmannalaugar zeker op je agenda :)

      Yay! That makes me so happy! You should totally make your own bucket list. I really believe writing your dreams down takes you one step closer to achieving them

    You’ve crossed off so much! I would love to try backpacking by myself someday, but I dunno if I’d be able to handle it. I think I’d want company/support. :)

      Awesome! I don’t have a tattoo. I cannot think of anything that I am confident about that I would still like in say, 50 years

    I’m glad you have such awesome aspirations, and a list to help you keep track of all the wonderful things you accomplish throughout your life. I’ve always kept lists: lists of movies to watch, places to visit, things to see. Anytime I accomplished one of those things, I would take it off my list. Now, however, I would rather cross it off. I want to be able to see that I’ve done and seen things. I think, whenever I am feeling low, I could pull out those lists and be able to remember something that made me smile.

      I’m also such a list person! I don’t think I can survive without haha. And I agree that crossing off is more fun; looking back on all the great things you already did :)
