Do you have a bucket list? If so, what do you have on it? Is it full of travel-related experiences or a combination of life and travel ideas?

If you haven’t yet started a bucket list, it’s a simple process that helps you get real about the types of things you want to experience in your lifetime. It has the potential to change how you see the world by giving each day more purpose, too. Although there are websites and books dedicated to the subject, creating a travel and adventure-filled bucket list is a deeply personal experience that only you can do for yourself.

Still, some suggestions could help you get started in creating your ultimate bucket list. We’ve listed some of the more common bucket list items that people include on their lists. That way, if you do need some inspiration, you’ll find it here.


What’s On Other People’s Bucket Lists and Could Be On Yours, Too?

Part of the fun of creating a bucket list is exploring all the ‘what if’ possibilities there are. Imagine the many roads your life could take you down. Your dream life becomes a more significant part of your reality because you work to make things happen that you likely wouldn’t have tried if you hadn’t listed them out. Bucket lists can be grandiose or straightforward, and the activities on them can be free or cost a lot, depending on what you’re interested in doing.


Cafe Au Lait, Eiffel Tower, Paris Some of the most common shared bucket list ideas include visiting iconic cities of the world-- backpacking around Europe, running with the bulls in Spain, taking a photo in front of the Eiffel Tower, seeing the Northern Lights, visiting a vineyard in Italy, going skydiving, buying a vintage travel trailer and fixing it up, being incepted into the Guinness Book of World Records, being in two places at once, and getting a higher education degree after years of being without one.


Mesa Arch, Canyonlands National ParkOther ideas worth exploring are visiting the many Wonders of the World, learning how to play a musical instrument, going glamping in a National Park, attending Mardi Gras, and even staying in a place that serves you breakfast in bed. As you can see from the many suggestions listed here, there is something for everyone to do potentially. The more you start thinking about the things that matter to you and want to achieve, the easier it is to create a bucket list that is yours and yours alone.


There are so many incredible experiences to have. It’s up to you to determine which excite you most. When you have a bucket list to review, you have a sense of direction to go in. You’re able to seize opportunities that you didn’t even know existed whenever you’re out and about.
