My Ultimate Bucket List

I've never had a Bucket List, raising 5 kids and working always limited both finances and time. 

As a child there was only one thing I really, really wanted to do and that was to go to the Olympic Games. I did this in Barcelona in 1992 after winning a competition with the Daily Express. 

When the children were older and finances more secure we started travelling, with and without the children and have had some amazing experiences. Since becoming expats and living in South Africa and now in Dubai, I've had some amazing opportunities for travel and adventure. 

I was tagged by Morgan Prince to share my own ultimate bucket list. I think a lot of my list is a fantasy as it's quite a list that would cost quite a lot of money, I don't work at the moment, but if I did get a job I wouldn't have the time to complete the list. 

So with all that in mind I really need to get on with finishing Number 1.

So I tag the following 3 bloggers


  1. Brilliant list! And you did get to 50 - Yay!

    Letting go of the past can be tough, I've struggled with this for a long time. But I'm sure you'll achieve it. I love the idea of being sponsored to do anything on our bucket list, that would be awesome wouldn't it?!

    Great list Suzanne. xxx

    1. thanks Morgan, need to start by getting off my arse and start writing that bloody book to be able to afford it all and maybe approach companies for sponsorship, but i find that can be quite demoralising

  2. It's a fabulous list! Can't believe that you managed to think of fifty great ideas!! Thank you for the tag :o)

    1. it took some thinking and the best part of the day
