What's on your bucket list?

Recently I have been thinking about things that I would like to do in the next few years and travelling is always top of my list.  This year I have added a few new things to my list though and I thought I would share them with you all here and see if you had any recommendations or things you think I should be adding...

I read a book about Myanmar a few years ago and was spellbound by the culture and it's history - in particular the world war, the Royal Family, their teak craftsmanship and the English occupation.

South East Asia
This is on most people's list and I have already seen how beautiful Thailand is and all that Singapore has to offer, however, there is so much more to see in this part of the world and I can't wait to explore it further.  Loas, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Kuala Lumpa and Bali are all part of this list and no doubt I will discover more over time.  At the moment, this is still a pipe dream - but I am hoping 2016 will make some of these dreams come true.

Most people find their love for skiing at a young age, when they are still at school or on family holidays.  Unfortunately, this is a luxury that my family couldn't afford while I was growing up - but I still want to take on the challenge and see how I do on a pair of skis.  I might check out one of the snow domes in the UK first though.  However, I did visit The Telegraph Ski & Snowboard Show a few weeks ago, courtesy of Ski Total, and I feel a lot more 'clued up' and excited at the prospect of a Ski holiday now and all that it entails.  Especially if it means, beautiful log cabins, thick hot chocolate, delicious food and of course the infamous parties...

This is somewhere that I have wanted to visit for a very long time and have a much overdue catch up with a friend I met when I was travelling.  My aim is to see Toronto in the Spring, so I am hoping I will be able to make it out there this Easter for a week.  So let me know if you have any 'must do' or 'top tips' while I am there.  At the moment I am thinking Niagara Falls?


America has never really captured my heart like other places such as Australia and Thailand.  However, I have two years left in my 20's (scary stuff) and I think this could be the perfect way to celebrate my 30th and give me enough time to save and do it in style!


Buy a house
As I have just mentioned, the big 30 is coming up in the next few years and I would love to have bought my own house by then.

Of course, these 6 new additions to my bucket list will take me more than a year to complete (unless I win the lottery) and I won't hazard a guess as to which ones I will manage to complete this year - but hopefully in my lifetime I will see each of these places and reach each of the life goals that I have set out for myself.

Do you have anything on your bucket list that you want to tick off in 2016?  Or are you looking for some inspiration?
