The Bucket List, pt. 1

21 Oct

Do you have a bucket list?  If so, what’s on it?  I had never made one until my, uh, 30th Birthday this year. 😉  But when I sat down and was honest with myself about where I’ve been, the things I have accomplished and been brave enough to try, well, the list wasn’t long enough for me.  So I set about to create a list that would inspire me.  I believe that one step leads you to your next step, so that’s kind of how I made my list.

First up is more travel.  I love to see the world, and prior to my second marriage {don’t judge}, was on quite a roll.  I used to have great getaways with my girlfriends, take trips alone, etc.  It was so much fun!  But it stopped once I was remarried and we had more kiddos.  We always talked about places we’d like to travel, but it never happened.  Single again, it’s time to get back to exploring the world and sharing it with my friends and family.  There’s so much to see and learn, people to meet and adventures to be had.  I have also gone back to school as an International Studies and World Languages student, so I’m committed. 😉

Here’s one of my goals on the agenda for 2012…  Hiking through Italy.  There’s this amazing five day hike that takes you up the northwest coast of Italy, stopping in villages each night.  Can you imagine?  I’ve given up my beloved Starbucks runs to save for this trip, and I am determined to take one or two of my favorite people with me, so honey may need to give up new shoes too, but it will be so worth it!  Here’s the trip I am looking at, through REI…

What’s in your Bucket?

Godetevi i vostri viaggi!

    Great choices for a bucket list. The Cinque Terre trail is truly beautiful, you’ll love it 🙂 Best of luck. I’ve been wanting to write a bucket list for months, now you’ve inspired me to just sit down and write down what I am thinking! 🙂

  2. Hope you make your trip to Cinque Terre, it is really worth it!

    This sounds like a great bucket list. The sis and I plan on hiking through Italy, or bouncing around over there when our “big” day comes. It’s always great to envision yourself doing things and travel is so beautiful!
