Need a new bucket list? Try these top 10 ideas!

March 23, 2020 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

Creating and then completing a brand new bucket list is incredibly satisfying. So whether you’ve miraculously ticked off your original bucket list or are creating one for the very first time, here are some top ideas to get your creative juices (and sense of adventure) flowing.

1) Abseil down a skyscraper

OK, so sky diving and bungee jumping are on millions of bucket lists already, but abseiling… not so much. So if you love an adrenaline fuelled adventure or want to do something drastic to cure your fear of heights, abseiling down a skyscraper should definitely be on your list.

2) Learn to surf

Pro surfers make it all look so easy, but many of us are put off surfing because we fear that we will be absolutely terrible at it. But instead of letting fear hold you back, why not commit to a surf camp and get the coaching and support you need to learn the basics? From women’s surf camps in Australia to beginner surf retreats in Hawaii, there are plenty of programs out there designed specifically for those who want to learn the basics and master the art of surfing! 

3) Run a marathon 

Running a marathon is as much about psychological strength as it is about physical ability. So if you’ve always dreamed of running a marathon but are worried that you’ll struggle to push yourself through the 42 kilometres, choose an amazing location or a famous marathon to help keep you motivated. The atmosphere in big city marathons like New York or London are absolutely amazing and you’ll find yourself pumped with adrenaline as you pound the pavement. Or, if you want to tick off two things at once, why not choose a crazy location like the North Pole? 

4) Learn a language 

So many people say they want to learn a new language but never get around to it. And whilst it takes a lot of work and serious long-term dedication, getting started has never been easier. There are countless free apps available that can help you to nail the basics of a new language from the comfort of your own home. So why not start with one of these free resources and then invest in lessons or an immersive course a bit further down the track?

5) Volunteer 

Giving back to the community and helping others is a wonderful thing to do and as an added bonus, it makes you feel amazing too. Whether it’s popping to the shop once a week for an elderly neighbour, volunteering at an animal shelter or anything in between, find something that works for you and just do it! 

6) Travel to every continent 

If you have the budget and the time, travelling to every continent will literally open up a world of experiences and opportunities. 

7) Take part in a parade of carnival 

If you have the budget, Rio Carnival or Barranquilla Carnival can be epic, but if funds or logistics don’t allow, why not take part in the next Mardi Gras parade? 

8) Go vegan for one month

Want to do your bit to help the planet but don’t quite fancy going full vegan? Why not challenge yourself by going vegan for a month? After all, every little helps!

9) Learn to scuba dive 

Whilst there are endless wonderful things to see above ground across the world, there is so much more to be found under the surface. Open yourself up to a whole new world of adventure by exploring shipwrecks, reefs and so much more with a scuba diving qualification! 

10) Go on an African safari

 Plan the adventure of a lifetime with an African safari. You can explore the wild by day and hear lions roar as you camp under the stars at night. And if budget allows, top it all of with a once in a lifetime hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti! 


So there you have it, ten bucket list ideas to help quench your thirst for adventure. Your budget (or lack thereof) may not allow you to do all of them but hopefully this article has given you plenty of inspiration to get you started. Enjoy!
