40 Bucket List Ideas

I firmly believe that everybody needs a bucket list: a list of things you would like to accomplish in your lifetime. The items on your list can be as easy, challenging, unique, or cliche as you’d like. Striving to fulfill the items on your bucket list can help you live life to the fullest! If you haven’t created a bucket list yet, I am inviting you to read the list of ideas I have put together. Perhaps some of these will inspire you! 🙂

    Fantastic post, love this idea! I visited the Louve and the Mona Lisa was kinda a disappointment – it was much smaller than I expected. The Louve itself though is amazing!

    Would love to feed a kangaroo and cuddle a Koala in Australia, that’s most definitely on my bucket list!
