Bucket List in Progress


My in progress bucket list will probably never be as adventurous or extensive as my around-the-world bucket list, completed bucket list, or my  northern living bucket list. It’s hard to top the year I traveled to 22 countries, while checking endless items off of my bucket list from skydiving, hang gliding, sand boarding, body boarding, SUP, kite surfing, scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef, and beyond. Not only that, it’s hard to beat my 2015-2016 adventures of living in the north, while experiencing the best adventure travel tours anyone could hope for from snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, yoga in the snow, snow tubing, seeing polar bears, wildlife tours, hiking, winter bush fires, to dog sledding. How can I compete? I can’t! I just keep on living. Even though I’m not traveling full time anymore, I’m still traveling locally, within Canada, and sometimes abroad, but now just half the time. I’ll never stop trying new things, visiting new places, and adding items to my ‘loving-life-list’. With each item I check off my bucket list, I find another thing to add to it. Here’s to living life to the fullest, dreaming a new dream, and enjoying this beautiful life we have been given.

My mantra is to live, dream, travel, and do yoga. I’m doing just that.
C.S. Lewis says it best: “you are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”

Any suggestions of what I should add to my list? Check out my other bucket lists to see what I’ve done and recommend something NEW: countries I’ve visited, completed bucket list, & around-the-world bucket list

*I’ll be adding items to my in-progress-bucket-list as I think of new and exciting things I want to try and unique places I want to visit. I may adjust/change experiences as I travel to new destinations.

    • Yay! I am excited to get started! I don’t know where I have the time (or will find the time). I seem to run ragged all the time, haha. I manage to make it happen somewhere or other. This year is more difficult than others because I am also working full time. eeeks. The MALDIVES is one of my DREAM destinations. So jealous! I want to come!

  1. Jessica – you have a wonderful bucket list – where are you getting married? Do you have any date yet? If so, I always promised you we will play in your wedding!! Congrats!

  3. I think you need to update this further with more details on the more recent items on the list. I know, it’s a challenge.

    • I just spent some time this weekend updating this list and putting everything in chronological order (finally). And yes, you’re right, it is challenging staying on top of everything and adding the links to the articles I’ve written, as I write them (when of course that is they correspond with the bucket list items). How do you stay on top of it all? I’ve also made a few changes. I’ve still yet to write about teaching at a college and working half the time–do people really want to hear about that? Technically, I’m not working half the time if I add in the blogging, external writing, teaching yoga, and helping my friend with her spa to my actually “job” of working half the time at the college. I’m wanting to add “buy a beach house” and “have a family”, but those items will come later on. 🙂 Thank you for your interest in my progress.
