My Travel Bucket List (2014/15)

Okay, so I don’t think this bucket-list is going to be incredibly adventurous, but my excuse is; it’s my first BIG independent trip. These are not in any particular order, but are just some of my goals and hopes for this upcoming trip.

  1.  Be able to hold a basic conversation in French: Because I’m going to be staying in France for around 3 months with an Aunt who knows limited-no English, I’m hoping that this will force me to use what little French I know and develop it a whole heap more!
  2. Try 9 new foods/dishes: I’m usually quite an adventurous eater, I’ll give almost everything a go. The only thing I’ve not been able to eat has been chicken feet at Yum Cha. If I was in another country and that was one of their traditional foods I’d totally eat it, at the moment though, not really my cuppa tea.  And why 9 foods you ask? Just simply because 9 is my lucky number.
  3. Make friends with people from at least 5 different countries: I’m really looking forward to meeting new people, especially when I get to university in Cardiff, and meeting people from different backgrounds and cultures will be really interesting and rewarding too.
  4. Have a spontaneous trip/adventure: While I do have some things planned out, there is still a whole lot of time that I’ve left to “what ifs” and “maybe’s”, so I’m hoping that somewhere in this time slot I can go on some spontaneous trips that I’ve decided on just a few days (hours??) beforehand.
  5. Get a tattoo: Okay, so if Mum reads this she will KILL ME. But for about 4 or 5 years now I’ve really wanted to get a tattoo. Technically I’m old enough to get one without my parent’s consent, but I know how much my Mum doesn’t like them so I’ve refrained from getting anything. Going away though, I’m really set on getting one. So, sorry Mum, it’s going to happen.
  6. Do a blogpost at least every second day: I have a feeling this might be something I’ll find VERY difficult, but I’m hoping that I can create some consistency and a routine of blogging. The hardest thing for me is coming up with ideas, especially now, when I’m not really going anywhere or doing anything exciting.
  7. Go to a concert/music festival in another country: I know that this is definitely going to be something I will check off my bucket-list.
  8. Go to a theatre production in another country: Do I hear London’s West-End calling my name? I REALLY would love to see a theatre production or musical at the West-End, so keen.
  9. Travel to at least 5 NEW countries: This means I can’t include places that I’ve already been. There are of course a whole lot of places I would LOVE to visit,  but I think that a whole different list in itself. I’ve done a quick country summary (that needs updating) HERE.
  10. MAKE A LONGER BUCKET-LIST: At the moment I have a very pathetically short bucket-list, but I will keep adding to this as I go along, so keep your eyes peeled!

If you can think of any other things that I can add to my bucket-list (not really things to see, but more things to DO) feel free to leave a comment below!
