Ticking off a bucket list

Its been a hectic start to June with series of back to back out bound training programs which gave me a good excuse to delay my posts here. I always wonder how I got 26 posts up without a hitch in April and find umpteen excuses at all other times of the year...

Once back to civilization, I came across this bucket list posted by Denise and it seemed a good idea to check out on what I have been doing in my life other than work/work/worry/homework etc... I do have a travel wish list but nothing of this kind.. Apparently this is a version of a list that has been circulating on Facebook for a while but I have not seen that one..

Wow, that's one looooong bucket list. Glad you enjoyed your outdoor activities. It is strange that completing the A to Z, even though it was a slog on some days, gave us more focus and seemed easier than now - thinking of something stimulating to say once a week is tough :):) Have a great week!

Archana said...

Thank you Nicola! I guess having a theme in the AtoZ helped focus thinking hence made it easier to post. Cheers :)

Denise said...

I wonder who started this list. It sure is making the rounds around the world. The good thing is that I now feel that I haven't missed out on a lot of what I wanted to do in life.

Archana said...

Agree Denise! I would like to modify the list by changing some of the destinations mentioned. Maybe I will post that another time! Cheers!

Interesting list of items. I counted 40 items on the checklist that I have done. I don't know that I would use the checklist as it is for a post, but I see an inspiration for a future post here. I'll have to save this into my someday posts.

I'm not a bucket list type of person, but I so enjoyed reading this!

Thanks for stopping by Corinne! I do have a list of places I want to visit but this list includes stuff not related to travel hence caught my eye!
