2018 Bucket List

I’m a few days late on my bucket list review. I’m not one for New Year’s Resolutions. I’ve made and broke enough of those to not trust myself with nonsense like that.

A few years ago I decided to start a bucket list instead of making New Year’s Resolutions.I use this bucket list journal to document my memories. My son will have to read these memories to me when I am 100 years old and batty!


My number one bucket list item:  Travel some place new every year. Growing up my Grandmother wouldn’t fly, so we drove from NY to Orlando, Florida every year and spent 2 weeks in Disney World. I love Disney, have amazing memories there, been there  20 plus times (lost count after a while), and will happily return, but I knew there was a great big world out there and I hadn’t seen it. Since then, I’ve been to Miami, Boston, Rhode Island, Vegas, St, Thomas, Bermuda, Barbados, Curacao,  Aruba, St. Kitts, Mexico, and last year I took the most amazingly beautiful two and a half week trip to Italy. I spent a week in Sorrento with my job and then 10 days driving the Amalfi coast, then across Italy to Bari, where Dave’s family is from. I’ll post more on that later.  I truly believe you learn more traveling than you ever will from a text book. 

My bucket list looks something like this, no particular order

  1. Compete in Iron Man before I turn 40 (really should get moving on this one)
  2. Go Sky Diving
  3. Fly an F-16…this one will probably never happen, as I have horrible motion sickness
  4. Run a full marathon
  5. Go to Bora Bora and stay in an over water bungalow
  6. Go to Verona and see Juliet’s Balcony
  7. Learn another language
  8. Visit a new State, City, Island, and/or Country every year
  9. Get Beach Body Certified and Open a gym (this one made it on here when I used to work out 3 hours a day, should really start doing that again)
  10. Get Bachelors Degree
  11. Better control of my finances ( I would spend my last dollar on lipstick)
  12. Try something new every month
  13. Hike in a Rain Forrest
  14. Eat in The Grotto in Polignano A Mare
  15. Start a Blog
  16. Zip line

I’ve been lucky enough to check a few of these items off, in 2015 I Hiked a Rain Forrest in San Juan & Zip lined over Rain Forrest in St. Kitts, last year I ate in The Grotto Restaurant while in Polignano vacationing, I started a blog, and I’ve been visiting a new place every year since I started this list.

This year, I added “try something new every month”. January I will be learning calligraphy and/or hand-lettering…or at least try to.. My handwriting is awful, so this should be interesting. I’ll keep you posted on how this goes.
