I love Bucket Lists. I’ve had an informal one since forever and I am no spring chicken. Even better than having a Bucket List is checking things off of it-although I am even faster at adding things, I think.
So far, I’ve been lucky enough to:
- Take drum lessons
- Go for a polar bear dip on January 1st
- Go zip-lining
- See icebergs in Newfoundland
- Complete a Sprint Triathlon
But I have a whole bunch of stuff left- and, as I said adding more all the time.
Currently #1 is a train trip across the Rockies.
That’s not likely to happen this year but I do have some Bucket List ideas for 2018. I think it is important to schedule some great adventures yearly. One never knows when ones time will run out. I’d rather regret what I’ve done instead of what I haven’t done.
My Bucket List for 2018
- Haute Isle-Bay of Fundy
I’ve been waiting to visit Haute Isle for a while.I’m not sure why, except that the haunting hunk of rock seems to call to me whenever I am at Hall’s Harbour or Harbourville and look at it perched in the Bay. I’ve done some research-Advocate Boat Tours offers a 2 hour boat tour out of Advocate and found there are doggie kennels nearby for Emma while we are gone.
- Skyline Trail, Cape Breton
We actually did this in 2017, but hubby really wants to go back in October when the leaves are most colorful. I bid and won a night in a oTENTik from Parks Canada (which is something between a tent and a cabin) so I am hoping to be able to book that to use on our trip.
- Bike the Harvest Moon Trail from Grand Pre to Annapolis Royal
Now, before you get the wrong idea- I am not a hard core biker. I am about a once a week 15-20 km biker. so most certainly this will be a 117 km bum numbing challenge. I have a crazy friend who plans to do it with me and it will certainly involve an overnight stay and some Epsom salts.
I could go on and on but there is only so much time (and money) available. The important thing is I have some adventures that I hope to check off this year. My next move will be to choose dates and make sure I have time off, money saved etc.
What’s on YOUR bucket list for 2018?
