How long did it take To write your bucket list? Or are you still working on it?
My bucket list has been work in progress since January 2013. I am constantly adding to it whenever I hear of anything I want to do.
How did you afford all of the items on your list?
Unfortunately I’m not a millionaire (yet) so I work a 40 hour a week day job with a new part time business on the side. I don’t spend my money on material things as travel and experiences are a big focus for me. Some of the expensive items I do have to save up for but these have been split up over the last three years. Some of the larger items on my list I wont manage to complete for many years.
Another favourite for me is to search for deals on groupon! The alligator zipline and the water jetpacks were bought through there saving a lot of money!
Some of the larger items such as the sky dive, water jetpacks, zoo experience I crossed off on my honeymoon. They say the average UK wedding costs £20,000!! Instead of that we married in a little while chapel in Las Vegas with three guests and had unforgettable life experiences instead. It didn’t come anywhere near £20,000.
So for people who say they can’t afford to do things on their list. Change your priorities. Do you need that morning Starbucks everyday? A top of the range car? A new dress for every night out?
Anything is possible when you decide what is important to you.
What has been your favourite travel destination so far?
I love Florida, my parents took me there many times when I was younger and it was the first holiday I had when dating my husband. It’s also where we got engaged and the first holiday I had after starting the bucket list. I’ve had amazing experiences there: parasailing, worlds highest sling shot, ziplining over alligators, my first tattoo, Man Vs Food restaurants and Halloween Horror nights at Universal Studios.
What has been your favourite item so far?
Not one of the “big” items like many would expect, but performing in a play and being a zombie in a haunted house are two of the best experiences I’ve had so far. I’m not the most confident person so taking part in these definitely brought me out of my shell.
Least favourite item?
Water jetpacks! I’m sure I would have loved these if I didn’t have a massive fear of the sea! My fear got the better of me on this one and I spent most of the time under the water :'(
What are you looking forward to the most?
Anything involving flight! I love being in a plane/helicopter! So wingwalking, flying a plane and gliding are three I am REALLY looking forward to.
What are you least looking forward to?
The shark swim! As I’ve said I have the biggest fear of the sea, and sharks are a part of this! I have items on my list I don’t want to do though as I think this is pointless (I don’t want to run a marathon or climb mount everest so they arent there) – But I am hoping by facing my fear of sharks I may be able to relax more in the sea.
