    That’s an exciting list!

    I can think of some amazing trail runs in the Canadian Rockies that you can add to your bucket list. With a little luck you could knock off “See the Aurora Borealis” from your list while you’re here 🙂

    1. The Canadian Rockies are definitely going on the list! It looks incredible 🙂 Thanks!

  4. I do no have a list per se. But I do have things in my mind I want to do, not a grand as yours, but grand for me. I completed one this year when I backpacked the Grand Canyon. Good luck on yours.

    I met a person from Germany years ago who was working on a list of his own. He left Germany five years prior and was working his way around the world. Rather than having a regular job and seeing things during vacation he decided to spend time working and visiting each place. He worked with me for six months before moving onto the next city.

      WOW! That’s amazing. A very exciting yet scary thing to do.

      1. That’s how I feel about hiking Austrailia, but too costly for me.

      2. Unfortunately it is quite expensive to come to Australia and a lot of National Parks charge you if you want to camp 😞

    1. My parents don’t like the idea of me getting a tattoo either, so i’ll start small and see how I go lol 🙂

      I was born in Sydney and have lived here my whole life. I absolutely love it! I have been all over the world and I still love knowing i’m coming back to Sydney at the end of it 🙂

  16. Nice list! I have a friend going to New York later this year for the New York Marathon. Could be a good one to add to your list?

    We completed the Everest Base Camp Trek in November 2013 at the same time as an ultra marathon was being conducted. They were racing past us, through the snow and up steep hikes.
    Now that would be awesome Bucket List item too!

    1. I will definitely be looking into doing the New York Marathon! I know I’ve got to have a few up my sleeve to register for the Boston Marathon, so that will most definitely be one!

      WOW! that does sound incredible. I’ll have to look into it 🙂 Thanks!
