Bucket list

After my recent trip to Dubai I set out to write a few articles on my new experiences.
This brought up previous experiences I’ve had during my travels and a few goals I made for myself but never bothered to write down.
I see and hear so much about Bucket List’s and the worthy adventures, activities and locations people are determined to visit before they die and it inspired me to write a list of my own.
I write to-do-lists as though I have a serious memory problem so I’m surprised I don’t have an actual ‘Bucket List’ until now..
In bold are thing’s I’ve done and some I’ve done recently that I wanted to share with you so you know what I consider to be Bucket List worthy stuff.
I managed to tick off  5 things in just a short trip to Dubai.

Hopefully this inspires you to write your own list. Things to achieve and something to always look forward to.

Burj Khalifa: The tallest artificial structure in the world, standing at 829.8 m – 163 stories high.
Prepare for a little vertigo. After looking out over the city and as far as I could see. I lasted about half an hour before feeling a little woozy. Great place to come and get some cool pics!
See my experience here

Hot Air Balloon over the desert at sunrise: This was an absolutely amazing experience. Something I’d definitely recommend to anyone going to Dubai. Read more about my experience in a recent post here and here

 Dune Buggy’s in the desert: This was by far one of the funnest things I’ve ever done. Get a few buggy’s going at once. If you’re not too scared to drive a little wild. I wasn’t hoping to flip but I wasn’t trying to avoid it much either……
