LIFE OF A BLOGGER: Bucket List
Life of a Blogger is a weekly meme by Novel Heartbeat. It gives us a chance to talk about non-bookish passions and interests.
Super fun topic! Funny enough, I wrote this bucket list awhile ago as a bucket list for 40. I have about 7 years to accomplish these things...we'll see how far I get!
1. Visit all the Canadian Provinces/Territories
I've put a pretty good dent in this one. Out of the 13 provinces and territories, I've been to six (almost half!). I still need to visit: the NW Territories, Nunavut, Yukon, Saskatwechan, Manitoba, Prince Edward Island, and Labrador/Newfoundland.
2. Drive to Alaska/Alaska Cruise
This one is fairly doable. I live in Seattle, so Alaska isn't too far away. If I drive I can cross the NW Territories off my list too. Bonus!
3. Get Scuba Certified
I've been scuba diving twice and really liked it. It would be fun to be certified and go on bigger, better dives.
4. Visit Yellowstone National Park
This could be a good family vacation since we could drive there easily in about two days.
5. Visit All the Wine Tasting Rooms in Woodinville
I live about 5 minutes away from a veritable wine tasting playground. Washington has a huge wine economy and most of the wineries have tasting rooms in Woodinville. There are about a 100 tasting rooms currently. I've been to probably about 30 (I love wine tasting!). Not to mention all the craft distilleries and breweries popping up in the area too.
6. See the Bats Fly Out of Carlsbad Caverns
I like bats and as soon as I heard this was a thing, I knew I need to see it.
7. Go to the Smithsonian
I LOVE museums, especially ones like this. This is, like, THE museum.
8. See the Aurora Borealis
My preference would be to see it in Iceland.
9. Ride the Burros at the Grand Canyon
Ever since I visited as kid, I've wanted to do this.
10. Visit Mt. St. Helens
I'm a little shocked I haven't done this yet. I live in Washington State, so it seems like something I should have done by now...
11. Make My Own Rootbeer
Maybe I'll get my husband a rootbeer making kit for his birthday and we can have an excuse to do it.
12. Sew a Costume for Kaylee
I don't know how to sew. But I would learn if I could make her a cute costume!
13. Buy a Pop Up Camper Trailer
It doesn't need to be fancy, but it would be super nice to have one.
14. Be in Mexico on Dia De Los Muertos
I don't have any desire to go back to Mexico, unless it was for this. I think it would be so cool. I would love to go with my best friend too.
Mission Accomplished! We actually just did this a couple months ago! SO cool.
16. Take Archery Lessons
I totally want to be Katniss.
I'm not really into guns, but the idea of shooting one kind of fascinates me. I'd love to take a gun safety course and actually learn how to shoot.
18. Take a River Cruise in Europe
I think these look sooooo cool!
19. Go on a Roadtrip with Niki
I've had the chance to go on two roadtrips with my best friend, Niki. One was to Arches and Zion National Parks and the other was through Northern California. Optimally, we could drive to Alaska, hit the NW Territories and see the Aurora Borealis. I'm all about efficiency. LOL.
20. Own Goats
I love them and I want them.
