on my bucket list

Having been to quite a few countries there is on I would dearly love to visit and that is Australia.
OK for the "sights" yes but mainly to see my cousin who I have not seen for more years,who lives in Sydney, than I care to remember but also some internet "friends" in Brisbane. The problem at the moment is covid and the restrictions on visiting.
the already booked Grand European river tour is a left over from last and looks as if it will be called off again this year.

Does ayone else have a "bucket list" they would like to fill?

Re: on my bucket list

Israel and The Northern lights are the only two things left. I have been to the Arctic circle but did not see the lights. I have no plans to travel to Australia.

Ooh yes, Dongle, I forgot that one, and I would love to see that. I bet it is mesmerizing and a bit spooky too.

Hands up here for the Northern Lights as well! I would also love to visit rural Japan, Bhutan and Peru. Also on my bucket list is a hot air balloon ride.

Re: on my bucket list

Problem is for me that I have more than one bucket full, and nowhere near enough years left...

Re: on my bucket list

I only have one real wish and that's to take a trip to St Kilda, but it's a long cold ride in an open wee boat, around 5 hours each way I think. But the place has mesmerised me since I was a wee girl, my dad's family knew people there and had visited when he was a youngster himself. He told me all about it and the way of life.

Re: on my bucket list

I agree with Barry! But deciding to get the dog has put the kybosh on trips, whether abroad or by coach in the UK, as I used to.

But setting aside that small problem for the moment, if I could, I’d love to do the Canadian Rockies, with a cruise to Alaska thrown in, and definitely the Northern Lights.

I have travelled extensively over the years, and seen more than enough that should satisfy me, but those two have always been forgotten in plans.

Oh, I did a Caribbean cruise end of 2003, and on the long sail from Madeira, 5 days, I had somehow caught a terrible cold and cough, which hit me by the first island. It completely spoilt my enjoyment, having made me so ill, so I’d love to do it again, revisiting the places on that cruise.

Re: on my bucket list

I think Canada and the Rocky Mountaineer would be near the top of my list too, but I would really love to go back to New Zealand given the chance, I didn't see anything like as much as I would have liked last time.
