    Love this! I also started Life/Activity goals 🙂 It makes life more exciting.

  2. carolinecartmill says:

    This is such a good idea!

  3. va02885 says:

    Outstanding! Speaking as an older hopefully now wiser (than I once was) this is a great list…

    Without knowing what a bucket list was I started one about the age of 17 and have done a lot of what you have on yours. May I suggest traveling along with those great adventures, for instance I did a white water rafting trip down the River Rouge in Montreal, Hiked in the Grand Canyon, Ballooning in New Mexico…

    Happy Trails, and good luck on your list!

  4. cupcakenova says:

    Every time I read a new post on your blog. I feel a little more inspired. So this week. I will start my “Before I’m 30” Bucket List. 🙂

  5. nomibug says:

    1000 times on a pogo stick?! No way. You are a star 😉

  6. You are an adventurer! Since your bucket list no doubt continues to grow, it struck me that you could perhaps combine a few: camp on a beach, go skinny dipping, then watch a meteor shower. 😉 Happy trails! And I look forward to your returning visits to Numbers at Play.

  7. It’s funny I started a bucket list last night and then this morning I find your blog because you followed mine. Love little coincidences like that. I look forward to adding more to my list.

  8. kel37blah says:

    This is great! I really envy and love the vision that you have brought to life here. You not only share your journey to your dreams and goals but also share others pursuit as well. This is truly phenomenal! I’m blown away.

  9. Kev says:

    That’s one hell of a list! 🙂

  10. This an awesome bucket list! For some reason, just for a minute or so while skimming over it and listening to “Lay Me Back Down” by Portugal the Man, the combination of your desire to make the most of life and the peaceful, upbeat music put me in such a relaxed and joyful state of mind. It’s inspiring. It truly is! Thanks Christine!

    • Wow, thank you so much Scott 🙂 Your comment seriously just made my day (or I guess I should say morning now, lol). Also, I just listened to “Lay Me Back Down” and really enjoyed it, so thank you for introducing me to a great new song and glad I found your blog!

  11. Courtney says:

    Thanks for the follow on my blog Looking at your list inspires me to make an overall bucket list as well as the Kind Acts & Volunteering category you have as well. I’m looking forward to my own adventures for my 30 Before 30 and following along with your list as well!

  12. Victoria says:

    Next thing on my bucket list is a zip line tour in Montana this summer! Woot!

  13. neatosteo says:

    Today is a beautiful day and reading this first thing reminds me to make every day count – this day will not come again! I am amazed to read that I have already done a large number on your list without even trying. What I do is set myself 5 challenges to complete before my next “big” birthday. I have five years to sail on a Tall Ship, treat elephants in Thailand, do a charity walk in Iceland, take up archery and take my husband to Hong Kong!

    • Aww I’m so glad to hear that 🙂 I love the idea of the 5 big challenges; it’s such a great idea! And your goals sound amazing. Let me know if you get a chance to complete them this year!

    Nelson Mandela met a young man in Seattle during a visit in the 1990s. The young man said, I want to play in the NBA. Mandela replied, wonderful, and then what. So, Mandela asks, and then what …..

  15. Marissa says:

    Absolutely love it! Our bucket lists are very very similar! Can’t wait to read more from you!

  17. Oh I love this bucket list!!! Will steal a few and when I make my own list which I NEED to do!! Riding a mechanical bull!!! Never would have had that one, but now I do! I really want to ride in a hot air balloon, but won’t do it till I write my will! Being a mom changes my bucket list. There’s a fear of not being there for them with things that have risks. I need to get past that!

    • Aw I’m glad you enjoyed it 🙂 But haha, yes the mechanical bull was so much fun! And I know, I am a little wary of the hot air balloon! But that is completely understandable as a mother, though I hope you get a chance to cross some off your list! Definitely keep me updated!

  18. Saving My Belly Button Ring says:

    Love this! I wanna dance on a bar too. 😉 Paintball hurts and skydiving is awesome! I hope to ride a mechanical bull one day like you too. Thanks for the smile!

    Quite a bucket list! But you seem to have ticked more than 72.3% of it! 🙂
    I’ll come and check what I’ve done already (Saling with my two daughters of the coast of Huatulco. When they were little. We saw a turtle out in the open sea.) 🙂
    Have a great week-end. tick off some more. You are an inspiration!

    • Haha, I enjoy the statistics! As an English major, that’s not my forte, so it’s nice to have an actual number 😉 The sailing trip sounds amazing and thanks so much for your kind words Brian. I hope you have a great weekend as well 🙂

  21. Zula Julia says:

    Great idea for a blog, very very cool! Also reminds me I need definitely to update my bucket list.
    Thanks for the follow, hope you enjoy my musings 🙂

  22. Thank you for stopping by at my blog – I love your list; so much to fit in! I wish you luck with it all, and great happiness along the way. I’ve just done my first triathlon ( over here in the UK and loved it – am hooked! 🙂

  23. SmirkWire says:

    Thanks for the follow! We love your bucket list blog! Check out DuVune Cycling and Adventures if you’re serious about getting #43 crossed off. One of our writers got to crush grapes with his bare feet on a tour with them.

  24. Nicole says:

    Do you think you’ll keep going and adding more once you have your 103 crossed off? You have many years to go! 🙂
