Bucket List - What's on yours?

Hi all! 

People that (want to) work at YNAB have to submit a Bucket List of 50 items. 

I'm curious to learn what would be on your bucket list? :-)

    One of my bucket list items is to have a small but beautiful wedding in a picturesque part of Hawaii (and not to go into any debt for having it). 

    What about you Winterlover ???

    • Kate I'm not sure, it's actually quite hard to come up with some items for such a list! Let alone 50, as YNAB requires if you want to work for them LOL!

      Some bigger and smaller ones that would be on my list:

      - all kinds of paper planners
      - sailing on the Tall Ship Europe to Antarctica
      - a trip on Tall Ship Stad Amsterdam (I sailed on that one before)
      - horse back riding
      - books
      - a business coach
       - cleaning person for our home
      - a private chef

      Winterlover I have so many paper planners in my room because I literally cannot stop buying them! They're my favorite things ever to buy and customize. 馃檪

    • Kate I know, right? And then add some lovely stickers and washi tapes etc :-) I tend to not do all that in the end, even though I love it, because it takes so much time, and I feel I should use that to implement rather than just plan haha

    • Hannah Come visit. I live on a beach on the South Island. :)

  • I'd like to spend a year traveling through America. I've never been, partly because I can't decide where I"d go... Yellowstone, New York, the Great Lakes, Steinbeck's California, all those bits of amazing landscape you see in westerns and Breaking Bad, Houston (there must be a NASA tour!), San Fransisco, a dude ranch, Vegas, Virginia, how to choose? On the other hand, I don't really want to spend hours and hours getting through immigration, so between that and the not being able to decide which bit to actually pick, I never do it.

    I did have China, Hong Kong and Vietnam on my bucket list but I went to all three last summer. Sorry! :)


    Diving in Papua.

    The Galapagos Islands.

    The Azores.

    Go back to the Drakensburg Mountains in South Africa and see them again.

    Live on the West Coast of Ireland for a summer.

    Northern Lights (a popular choice!)

    Smoke weed again. Go on, admit it, it's fun :)


    Live long enough to meet my son's children. Live near enough to him to look after them, a lot.


    This has stopped being a bucket list and become a 'hopes and dreams' list, but whatever :)
