What is on your bucket list?


  1. Great bucket list! I lived in Mexico for a summer when in college. Those children selling gum were the saddest things I'd ever seen. Most were homeless trying to support the rest of their families. Call me a sucker, but I bought more gum than trinkets while I was there.

  2. Great list Raine! I have a few of those on my list too. Check out my other blog : My Day Zero Challenge

    Looking forward to working through the 31 days with you!

  3. I think if ..when you complete the others you will reach number 2...although happiness is a constant pursuit!

  4. Hi Raine, I'm Fiona - great to meet you through 31DBBB! Love this list...some practical, some esoteric, some wishful. Definitely with you on numbers 13 and 14.

  5. I have done 9,10,and 11. I don't drink so the ale was only a sip.

  6. this is a great list. I especially like number 2.

    As for number 11, I spent a semester in Ireland during college, so can vouch for it being a great experience. Only suggestion is to maybe try a Guinness instead of an ale! It tastes a lot different in Ireland - *much* better than the US version! (some details here:

  7. That is a great bucket list. I'm hoping to go on a cruise next summer.
