Fun! Bucket List Survey

What is a bucket list? This is a question we have been pondering lately. Recently Lesley Carter wrote a Blog about her experience at Sea TREK with Sharks in Atlantis Paradise Island Bahamas. Her blog is called bucket list publications and she is a travel writer who experiences many ‘bucket list’ activities and regales her adventures to her large group of followers.

This bucket list check off — for Lesley — was very scary because she did SeaTREK with sharks. Imagine coming face to face with a beautiful, mysterious shark while you are standing on the floor of an immense aquarium. That’s is exactly what Lesley Carter did. You can read her experience in her own words here.

So what is a bucket list? A bucket list is a checklist of all of the things you’d like to do before you —Well— kick the bucket. Reading more about bucket lists, and thinking of what our bucket list items are has made us ask the question: What does an individual include on his or her bucket list?

Some things are goal oriented for example: run a marathon, lose weight, or get a doctorate, while others are based on possession: own a house, restore a 1966 Ford Mustang, or buy a horse ranch. Then there is always travel and experience: Eat gelato on the Spanish steps in Italy, Sea TREK in Gran Canaria, Spain, Swim with Sharks in Jamaica, or ride a FunCat in the Gulf of Mexico. But reading about Lesley’s experience made it very clear that a lot of people are highlight facing their fears as an essential qualification for a bucket list item. Whether it is an extreme sport like base jumping and hang-gliding, or swimming with Stingrays, and SeaTREK helmet diving in the open ocean— facing your fears is empowering, invigorating, and a definite frontrunner for bucket list planning. Who would not want to face their fears before they kick the bucket?

Be sure to check out our bucket list Pinterest board and see if you can find some inspiration. The first step to a bucket list is to write down your goals. Pinterest provides a very beautiful application for a visual reminder of your dreams. Try it out, and follow SeaTREK’s boards while you are at it.
