I think it’s neat to google bucket lists or things like 30 before 30, 50 before 50 because you will find a ton of ideas. Maybe more ideas for your own bucket list. It’s also fun to see how many things you have done that are on other people’s bucket lists. In my case, I’ve been skydiving, travel to South America, ride in a helicopter, visit the Amazon, rappel down a building, and start a blog.
