The Big Bucket List ~ Lady & her Sweet Escapes

The Big Bucket List

Though I've been sharing my adventure trips and foodie trails for some time now, I have never written anything about my wish list. Just like everyone else, I have a big bucket list of things to do and places to see; some are crazy and weird, most are cheesy and romantic. This post will serve as my checklist, my inspiration, a constant reminder to work hard, save more and see the world.

My husband and I already fulfilled some of our lifelong dreams; I have shared a few in this blog, while some happened years before I started blogging. Before you check our done list, let me remind you again that Ed and I are a fun-loving, crazy yet sweet couple, so please don't be surprise! :) 

Past bucket list
I have included Ed's goals because I love seeing him fulfill them; his dreams are also mine. 

Here are the dreams that I have to turn into reality someday (listed from easy to far-fetched):
  1. visit all of the seven Emirates in UAE (been to six as of the moment)
  2. savor Filipino dishes while on a cruise at Loboc River in Bohol
  3. see the Underground River in Palawan
  4. flashpack travel for a week or more (destination: anywhere)
  5. dine at Pier Chic, Dubai's most romantic restaurant
  6. watch my husband skydive above Palm Jumeirah
  7. see the sunrise at Marina Bay in Singapore
  8. island hop in Phuket
  9. cruise on a love boat 
  10. have some Pho in Saigon or Hanoi 
  11. be temple raiders at Angkor Wat 
  12. drink an authentic Turkish Coffee at Sultanahmet district, while staring at the Blue Mosque, in Istanbul
  13. ride a hot air balloon and see the fairy chimneys in Cappadocia
  14. float in the Dead Sea and visit Petra in Jordan
  15. do the "Walk Like an Egyptian" pose at the pyramids of Giza
  16. kiss my dear husband at the Eiffel Tower
  17. cuddle in a gondola in Venice
  18. watch the sunset in Santorini
  19. witness the New Year's Eve fireworks display in London 
  20. have a White Christmas
I want to fulfill these 20 before 2020 (while also pursuing our goal of having kids)! :) I know most of the things on my bucket list are hard to achieve, but dreams do come true as long as you work hard for them, right?

travel makes you richer

chase your dreams
