This week I introduce to you Geff and Anne from https://whatdoesntsuck.com/
Why do you have a bucket list?
Great question! The term ‘bucket list’ has obviously become very popular in recent years, but the concept of planning certain things you want to experience of accomplish before you die is as old as time. For us, we are in a time of our lives where we are active, adventurous and out to see the world – maybe more than we’ll ever be so it makes sense to keep a list of “once in a lifetime experiences” we dream of doing. It is important to know what they are so if the opportunity comes up, even if it costs more than you want or the timing isn’t perfect, you can jump at the chance!
How many things are on your list?
Endless. The list grows and grows and grows almost weekly. No matter how many we tick off, we add even more. It is a living, breathing thing with a mind of its own.
The favourite thing you’ve ticket off your list?
The first thing that comes to mind was when we tried flyboarding in Dubai. Not the most off the beaten path, but if you’ve ever seen someone flyboarding I bet you’ve wanted to try it. Not many people thing of Dubai as a place for water sports, but it was incredible.
Least favourite thing?
Nothing makes it on our list unless it is worthy! You know, some things are better than others, but if you are out there, seeing the world and following your dreams, even if they don’t live up to your expectations, its still way better than living at home on the couch.
I love this answer! There a few things I’ve tried that I didn’t enjoy but at least I tried them.
If you could only choose three things on your list to complete what would they be?
Easy, seeing the Northern Lights in Finland, hiking to Everest Base Camp in Nepal and taking an expedition to Antarctica.
Do you think everyone should start a bucket list?
Everyone should have a bucket list not matter the topic, no matter the length and no matter if they ever complete it – or even start it for that matter. A bucket list lets us dream and that is the most important. However, dreams are just that, dreams. So make the push to complete yours.
What’s next for you?
We have some exciting plans for 2016 including a summer trips to Iceland and Bali, hopefully climbing to Everest base camp in the winter and we’re excited to head to Zanzibar next month!
Keep being awesome you two! Can’t wait to see your future travels. Especially Everest Base camp!
