Why Volunteering Abroad Should Be On Your Bucket List

Great, at least we know how to stay occupied while we’re here. But prepare to add just one more to your list, if it isn’t already there. And if it is, bump it up. Because a volunteer abroad program should definitely be…

Bucket List Guide of Things to Do in Yellowstone

Bucket List Guide of Things to Do in Yellowstone

Since 1872, one of the most popular items on travel bucket lists is a trip to America’s first national park, Yellowstone. In fact in 2016 over 4.2 million people visited this unbelievable beauty. This is probably because Yellowstone, all 2,221,766 acres of it offers an abundance of things to see and do.

My Anti-Bucket List: Things I don’t want to do before I die

My Anti-Bucket List: Things I don’t want to do before I die

One of the best “side effects” of The Bucket List Project is hearing all the different bucket list dreams people often share with me. To see their faces light up as they describe the adventures, travels, or projects they want to complete makes my heart happy. Occasionally people will share with me a bucket list item that makes even me think, “Really? You must be crazy! I would never want to do that.” Now don’t get me wrong, I would probably do anything…

Pop Rocks and Coke – A Bucket List Food Challenge

Pop Rocks and Coke – A Bucket List Food Challenge

There are many unique items on my Adventure Activities & Experiences List that are included for miscellaneous reasons, but one of my favorite items is #130) Eat weird things. Perhaps this is because I like to see the other people’s reactions when I tell them I just ate something totally weird like a Scorpion on a Stick. Also, I think I love it because it pushes me out of my comfort zone to experience unique foods of a different culture. However, of all the weird things on the list, probably the…

Funny But True Things About the Rickshaw Run

Funny But True Things About the Rickshaw Run

About 10 years ago, a group of crazy people calling themselves ‘The Adventurists’ created an insane 14-day Bucket List adventure race – The Rickshaw Run. Essentially, they created an adventure where participants drive a 3-wheeled Tuk Tuk (a tricycle with an engine) across all of India.  The catch? Well, no one knows what will happen during the race or if they’ll even make it to the finish line.  If you are crazy enough to enter this insane adventure race, you will battle the 1.2 billion people and 140 million vehicles in India while…
