My Bucket List is Ever-Changing. Is yours?

10 things I've done that You may not have...

How many of us have a Bucket List growing stale in a lingerie drawer? Or worse, how many of us haven't even started one yet?

Crater HikeMy list is ever changing and ever growing, and I'm okay with that. I don't think I'll ever be half done because the half-way mark keeps shifing.

On a night like tonight, I want to take stock of some of the amazing things I've already done. After all, it's great to look ahead and say someday I'm going to skydive or walk the Great Wall of China. But tonight I'm taking a minute to savor the gratitude of what I've already done.

Take a look at my list. Have you done what I've done?

1. Hot air ballooned over the Rio Grande.

2. Body-surfed in Barbados, lost my bikini and put it back on before the guy I was with noticed.

3. Zip-lined through a rainforest in St. Lucia, hiked up an inactive volcano in St. Kitts and flew in a helicopter over an active one in Montserrat.

4. Flew in a different helicopter over Niagara Falls, a float plane over the Mississippi in Louisiana and sat in the cockpit of a private jet - while in the air.

5. Rode a bicycle built for 2 through Stanley Park in British Columbia - wearing a dress, high heels and a big, floppy straw hat. Best not to ask.

6. "Soaked" in cedar-mulch composting tub during a spa Cedar Enzyme Bathtreatment that made me feel more connected to the earth than ever before in my life.

7. Worked in a maximum security prison and escorted a woman home to see her family - she was serving a life sentence for murder.

8. Chased a bull moose while snowmobiling in Northern Ontario.

9. Sunbathed on a nude beach in St. Marten and Toronto *and* ran 9 km (more than 5 miles) without stopping.

10. Ate "Heavenly Hash" made by nuns who had taken a vow of silence in Alabama.

I have a bucket list. I am working my way to 500 and i am on 367. Wish me luck in finishing all of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sweet bucket list! I like the tandem bicycle ride through BC with a straw hat. Very ladylike!

I have a bucket list too! So far it has 158 goals on it, I am working my way to 1000. My favorites are 'Milk a Cow', 'Ride a Zipline' and 'Make a Coloring Book'. Good Luck!!

I still need to make my bucket list!! I have done some of the things that I most wanted to do though, but there is so very much more I want to see.

I worked on a cruise ship for 10 months! It was hard work+long hours, but the ports of call were worth it! Barcelona, Palma Mallorca, VillaFranche, Rome, Florence, Lisbon, Canary Islands, Grand Cayman, Belize...just to name a few. It would have taken me years to do all of these on my own. Plus I made wonderful friends from all over the world. It was a crazy, amazing experience!

i walked all the way up the effilel tower, made a wish in the trevi fountain, and swam in the med. at 7 am (sooo cold). still so much i want to do

I went on Safari in Kenya and it was amazing - (got engaged in a hot air balloon over the Masi Mari plains!!) and just got back from our honeymoon in France / Belgium. Next place on our list is Australia or Italy.

took a cruise down the nile walked around St. Petersberg saw where Mozart was born saved my dad's life - he was chocking and I did the heimlich on him! What do I want to do yet? Dog sledding in the Arctic Hike the Himelyas Hike Machu Pichu

Hmm, let's see., i've hiked Gros Morne in New Foundland and I ran a half marathon - and finished it! great idea about sharing the things we've done already. Life is about enjoying *every* moment!

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
  • On How to Choose a Cruise Ship Cabin on Your Next Cruise, Tinu said "Thank you for this post! I was dragging my feet about going on a cruise. Now that I know there's such a thing as a balcony cabin, I can't wait to book a trip!"
  • On Travel Advice for Visiting a New Country, NJB said "Hi Stacy, great article! Just wanted to say, you can get an international SIM card that works in multiple countries and on cruise ships. They're not quite as cheap as a SIM card from the country you're visiting, but they're cheaper than a roaming plan on your domestic SIM and will save you a lot of time if you're visiting several countries. I got mine from Telestial, which also offers a range of cheap travel phones and other useful products (adapters, etc)."
