The 2015 Blog-tember Challenge: 10 Items Off Your Bucket List

So the other day I was browsing on Kylie’s blog and I saw she was participating in The 2015 Blog-tember Challenge from Brave Love Blog and I had to check it out. Make sure you click over to see the daily prompts! Having topics to write about makes is so helpful when you occasionally have mental road blocks.

Thursday, Sept. 10: 10 items off your bucket list. If you haven’t made one, now’s a good time to start!

I’ve had a running bucket list for many years. I am always adding to it and checking things off. I’ve actually been meaning to add a Bucket List Page to my blog for a little while now (I will get to it eventually!) So this prompt today is right up my alley.

I think one of the fun parts about writing and blogging is you can interpret things the way you want. So instead of going in the direction that a lot of people go with bucket lists like getting married, having kids, buying a house, finding a job I love, etc all things I want, but I thought I’d share 10 places that I want to travel to:

  1. I’ve been obsessed with the Eiffel Tower and Paris for as long as I can remember. I can not wait to get there someday (hopefully very soon!) and take a picture in front of it, have a picnic there, and just marvel at it.  783d2653d28492c0fec8a2bb0cca021f
  2. I’ve seen so many beautiful pictures of Moraine Lake, in Banff National Park in Canada and I’m so eager to see it in person.59aa5093bd7ca4a1f6328a791feac296
  3. Cracker Lake, Glacier National Park in Montana3077075c8430e9a9341d0fb5ee830958
  4. Capilano Suspension Bridge in Vancouver. Years ago Dave and I spent one day in Vancouver on a road trip to Seattle and didn’t have enough time for this bridge, but now that we’re moving to Seattle next month, we for sure have to check this place out!a4dad68cd36f1bf5fb9ee849f79c2ea9
  5. A few of our friends have made the trek to Iceland and Dave and I can’t wait until we make it out there. It’s supposed to be a photographer’s dream in terms of stunning landscapes like this one at Haifoss waterfall.

  6. London town! I’m obsessed with the UK and the royal family. I can’t wait to go to London and see all the famous landmarks, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, The London Bridge, Parliament, etc. 77e00b436869f461978968b10d4a6df2035ce21764f081ed53555696db36ead3
  7. Emerald Lake in Yoho National Park in Canada look stunning. Looks like we are going to be so busy road trip in and out of Seattle in the upcoming months 🙂 735a0499eab907ea726d265f0b10cf39
  8. Maligne Lake, Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada7fb479b460b0f825e21ffa9b5e0b01b4
  9. Lake Lucerne, Switzerland looks so magical! switz
  10. Hike Cinque Terre. Those colorful houses and the mountain side is breathtaking.  ct

There are so many places I want to go to and the list just keeps on growing 😉 Hopefully Dave and I will get to hit some of those beautiful places up in the Pacific Northwest and Canada in the coming months. But for right now, Europe still eludes me.

As you can see I prefer the mountains to the beach. Yes it’s fun to see the palm trees and the ocean but the sand gets everywhere! Hah (first world problems!) But the mountains have a way to putting things into perspective for me. It makes me feel small and humbled. I love the view you get when you do an epic hike.

Super excited about this Blog-tember challenge and to get to read some items on your bucket lists and find some new bloggers!

  1. My paternal grandfather is from Paris, so I’m really hoping I can make my way there one of these days! I agree with you about the mountains. I love the beach but I’d much rather be somewhere in the mountains! Such beautiful places that you have on your bucket list!

  2. London is my favorite place in the whole world – I really hope you’re able to go soon! I seriously could live there; it’s amazing! I’ve only been twice and I’m already itching to go back. And I keep going during their colder months so I want to try to visit in the summer! But really, their winter is nothing compared to Chicago, so it is still a nice get-away!

    1. I’ve looked at England a few time through Google Maps and it looks like a magical place haha just so picturesque and perfect in the countryside. Seems so beautiful.

      Hah! Chicago winter are brutal but they’re good training ground as far as weather goes, because after you’ve lived there anywhere else seems so mild! 🙂
