I love lists, so this one is unavoidable: My bucket list!

Such a strange word… Fast forward 15 seconds… looked it up… and I understand it now, as it “derived from kick the bucket (“to die”) + list; hence list of things to do before you die.”

So what would I like to have done or attempted before I kick the bucket? Here we go:

  • Go rockclimbing
  • Paragliding
  • Do a looping in an airplane
  • Learn how to do an eskimoroll in a kayak
  • Go down a class 3 river in a kayak (after having mastered previous point, preferably)
  • Run a color run- race
  • Run a mudrun
  • Learn CPR
  • Eat at a michelin-star restaurant
  • Visit Easter island
  • Learn to make porkchops as well as my mother can
  • Try all Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavors
  • Eat a spider (consciously… one that has been prepared for consumption)
  • Participate in an ayahuasca ritual
  • Spend the night in a tree(house)
  • Witness a meteorshower on a perfect night
  • Look through a telescope
  • Go swimming on horseback
  • Go scubadiving
  • Do one of those courses where they teach you what to do when your car goes into a crazy slip
  • Roadtrip through Canada
  • Learn French

  • Experience zero gravity
  • Participate in a new year’s dive
  • Build a piece of furniture from scratch (Not Ikea-style)
  • Sing in a karaoke bar
  • Go on a canopy tour
  • Ride on the orient express train
  • Learn to play pool
  • Harvest honey from a bee hive
  • Learn how to sew (neatly)
  • Find a nice place for my hammock (folded up in a closet is NOT a nice place)
  • Get over my fear of public speaking, or at least get better at it
  • Get a dog
  • Get a cat
  • Get a donkey
  • Get a goat
  • Learn how to milk a goat
  • Live in a house with enough space for a dog, cat, donkey and goat
  • Learn to make cheese.
  • Master lucid dreaming
  • Visit India (and check out for myself what the fuss is all about)
  • Get my astrological chart made
  • Drive (?) a segway
  • Be united with my two brothers, their kids and partners, all in the same spot at the same time
  • Build something from recycled materials only
  • Herd cattle on horseback
  • Get rid of my shrimp allergy
  • undergo an acupuncture treatment
  • hitchhike somewhere
  • stand in a big field of sunflowers in full bloom
  • have someone take a pic of me amidst thousands of sunflowers
  • fly first class in one of those super comfy reclining chairs
  • Go to an FC Barcelona soccer match
  • donate my hair to charity
  • volunteer at my local refugee foundation
  • Get my old red chair refurbished
  • Take a course in massage (ayurvedic?)
  • Create something I would be satisfied enough about to hang on my wall (photographs don’t count)
  • swim / dive with a whale shark
  • Chuck the list

I will update this list with new ideas and strike items once I have achieved them… We’ll see how it goes!
