137 Bucket List Ideas

I’m pre-warning you now this is going to be a long one!

I am going to shorten it by not including any travel and instead I’ll put that in a different blog post.

I’ve previously done a 25 Things to do by 25 list.

I hope that if you’re interested in creating a bucket list or perhaps adding something to your own that this will help inspire you, plus it’s a great way for me to keep track of everything I want to do as at the moment it’s all in different notebooks. It may also help me to start working towards achieving some of these goals and aspirations. Some of these will be big but others small – it’s a variety!


  1. Travel
    I have to put it in however, I will put specific countries in another post!
  2. Complete my novel
  3. Attend a World Cup Final
  4. Attend an FA Cup Final
  5. Attend a Champions League Final
  6. Watch the Super Bowl / Attend the Super Bowl
    Technically I watched it earlier this year however, as unlikely as it will be I imagine it would be a lot of fun to actually attend in person one day, or perhaps be in America around the time just to experience the energy and atmosphere it must create.
  7. Swim with Dolphins
  8. Do more tourist things in London
  9. Learn to speak a foreign language
    For example I would like to become fluent in Greek but I would also like to learn Italian and perhaps a few others.. But I’ll stick with Greek & Italian for now.
  10. Learn Sign Language
  11. Stand under a waterfall
    OK so technically I’ve done this one however, I want to do it again because it was so much fun!
  12. Be a member of an TV Show Audience
  13. Experience an eclipse
    I think I missed the last one we had, I’m not sure I remember how or why but next time I would like to actually experience it rather than just exist through it.
  14. Sleep under the stars
    This one sounds good, really good! The closest I’ve gotten to this is camping out in my friends back garden, but we had a tent so couldn’t exactly see the stars – it was a good evening though and such a laugh!
  15. Go to a carnival / festival
    This is a surprising one for me and though it’s something that I’m not 100% sure about it’s something I’d like to experience at least once.
  16. Spend a whole day reading a great novel
    See, I could have done this one by now except a) I don’t get up early enough for it to be classed as a whole day and b) I get distracted early in the day and then once again it’s too late for it to be classed as a whole day. I’ve spent hours reading, completed a book within a day. Actually does it count if I was on a plane for 11 hours? I did 2 and a half books then.. Probably not.
  17. Give Blood
  18. Do a half marathon
    I can’t promise I’ll be running but I’d like to give it a go anyway.
  19. Walk for a cause
    I’ve actually told my colleagues recently that I’ll do a colour rush in Brighton next year. Plus they’re already talking about the color run for 2017 which I can imagine I’ll be walking, but I’m planning on incorporating this into another blog post soon so stay tuned!
  20. Stay up all night and watch the sunrise
    The amount of times I’ve stayed up all night and missed the sunrise, must be rectified soon!
  21. Achieve a black belt in Martial Arts (Kickboxing?)
    I had actually taken up Kickboxing, I wasn’t being graded at the time but then the venue moved and I was always showing up late because it was too far from work. I’m going to try and see if they have other venues on different days or if there are any other classes in my area because it was a lot of fun.
  22. Watch a meteor shower
  23. Go on holiday with all of my friends
    I’ve been away with friends however, not yet all together so I imagine that will be an experience!
  24. Bury a Time Capsule
  25. Watch the best Top 100 Movies of all time
  26. Learn to play chess

I will say going through my lists made me realise I’ve actually done some of them which is amazing! Once I have enough I’m thinking of putting them in another post and sharing my experiences.

I’m always wanting to try new things and experiences so if there’s anything from your bucket list that’s not on here I’d love to hear them! Or if there’s something above that you want to try as well!
