Do you have a bucket list of restaurants that you want to eat at and attractions that you want to see before you die? If not, you might want to think about making one. Life is too short to eat the same food and see the same sights. This planet of ours has so much to see, smell, hear, taste, and touch. Make a list of the restaurants that you want to dine in, the sights you want to see, and the things that you want to do. You don’t need tons of money to check items off a bucket list.
Perhaps you want to take a tiny bite of every kind of ice cream in your local ice creamery. Maybe ethnic restaurants are on your personal list of attractions. Want to travel around the world via cuisine? There are enchiladas, escargot, fried rice, egg rolls, Danish pastries, curry, and a zillion other ethnic dishes being served in restaurants in a city or town near you. If you want to try out the cuisine of every continent, you can do it, if you try.
Places to See
There are a lot of places to see in this country and around the world. If you don’t want to spend lots of money, start out in your own neck of the woods. If you travel by car, you only have to pay for gas and cheap lodging. You don’t have to do it all at once, either. Make your list of “must go” places and try to check one off on every vacation or 3-day weekend you have. Some famous destinations include the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, and the Golden Gate Bridge. Some more modest ideas include the hospital where you were born or the factory that makes your favorite candy.
Things to Do
What have you always wanted to do? Some people dream of flying and might want to try skydiving, hang gliding, or going up in a hot air balloon. Others want to see, smell, and touch the bottom of the Grand Canyon and want to make the trip down on the back of a donkey. Maybe you want to touch the fur of a tiger or milk a cow. Every person’s wish list is different.
