Pic of the Week – A peek into my bucket list

During our Wild West Road Trip, my husband scheduled a sunrise hot air balloon ride over Sedona with Red Rocks Balloon Rides.  I was super skeptical, especially since we had to wake up at 3 am (Scottsdale –> Sedona is a bit of drive!) but it was so worth it.  See one of our beautiful shots below.

What’s on your bucket list?

Ah the bucket list.  I actually had never heard of such a thing until that movie came out, but since then my bucket list has continued to grow with very few items crossed off.  My goal will be to try and cross off a new item each year and we’ll go from there, thoughts?

I woke up at 3am for this, and it was worth every minute (you were right, husband)

Now, without further ado, I give you, in no particular order, the Appetite4Travel bucket list:

  1. Attend the Triple Crown in a single year (large hat required)
  2. See the Northern Lights (this might just be my #1)
  3. Visit Alaska
  4. Ride and/or play with an elephant
  5. Ride a camel (almost took care of that one in Australia)
  6. Go on safari
  7. See the David & the Sistine Chapel
  8. Visit Australia
    1. Hug a koala bear
  9. Ring in New Year’s Eve in a foreign country
  10. Ride in a gondola in Venice, Italy
  11. Go to London in December – how cute must that place be at Christmas?
    1. I studied abroad in London after Christmas and just feel it would be delightful all lit up
  12. Take in a baseball game at every single major league ballpark (In progress)
