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.

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?

It’s that time again, time for reflecting and planning out my 2017 Bucket List Hopes and Goals! I was home from India for barely a week when I started getting that same damn question, “So what’s next on the Bucket List Project?” It is a question that sometimes bothers me.
