Bucket List Travel Experiences

Have you seen the movie, “The Bucket List?” It’s basically a story of 2 older men with terminal cancer who make a pact to tick off their bucket list travel experiences.

I watched the “Bucket List” while flying Emirates First Class, one of my own bucket list moments. The movie made me think, “Shouldn’t we all write down a bucket list and propel it into action?” I don’t want to wait until I’m facing my last days like these guys did, do you?

I asked my husband what is on his bucket list and he responded : “Follow Tamala around while she fulfills her bucket list.” I must have a pretty decent bucket list! Don’t forget to check back, because this is an evolving bucket list. I will be adding bucket list travel ideas, and marking things off the list!
