My (Travel) Bucket List
9 December 2019
Remember the 2007 movie The Bucket List, starring Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson? If you don't, it was about two men who were diagnosed with cancer and given a certain amount of time left to live. So they wrote down a list of things that they wanted to do before they died and set off to do them, one by one. Their list included things like "kiss the most beautiful girl in the world" and "laugh until your belly aches", but many of the items related to visiting amazing places on Earth - the pyramids, Mount Everest and so on.
I was inspired by that movie to create my own travel bucket list which I am also steadily crossing off. My list contains both natural and man-made objects or experiences, but I do not include entire cities or countries - an item must be a specific place or thing. So "Cape Town" may be beautiful but it doesn't qualify; on the other hand I could have included "Table Mountain". So here's my list (move your mouse over the name of an item to see a picture of it):
You may disagree and that's OK - this is MY list, subject to change without notice. I'm enjoying visiting these places and will continue to tick them off as long as I'm able.
