THE BUCKET LIST:
1000 Adventures Big & Small
"So start dreaming, start planning and get going!”
Calling on good friends and family. And if someone could pass this information on to the Bag Carrier I would be much obliged! On the top of my must-have gift wish list is a coffee table travel book called “The Bucket List: 1,000 Adventures Big & Small.”
“Why?” You ask. “What’s so great about this book?” It is just so very inspiring that’s why!
It lists so many things to do and places to go, with some that you’ve possibly never even thought of.
Here are a few examples-
“Dip your toes in every ocean on the planet.”
“Search for the world’s last polar bears.”
“Tuck into the world’s best fish and chips.”
“Howl at the moon in the company of wolves”
“Kayak on Europe’s most beautiful canoe trail”
With each listing background information and instructions are given including the place and best time to visit in order to complete the task and the accompanying photos are superb. The book is arranged in quite a unique fashion. It starts at the North Pole and works it’s way down the planet by latitude until it finishes in the South Pole. The ideas for things to do and places to go cover every age group and type of traveler, from the very adventurous to the most conservative.
It would be great to have sitting on your coffee table to use as a resource when planning a trip or just to pick up and flick through for inspiration from time to time. As Kathy Stathers, the editor, states in her Introduction “So start dreaming, start planning and get going!” “With 1,000 adventures for all ages, it’s never too soon or too late to begin the things you’ve only dreamed of doing.”
