This week we’re talking about what’s on our bucket lists. So, I used to think this was a sad conversation to have but now I realize its a goal list and it can change as any list changes. So, my views have changed.
The first thing on my bucket list is a trip to Italy. I’ve always wanted to go, especially to the Tuscan Valley area. I’ve seen the pictures of the gorgeous landscapes, read stories of the people there and of course I’ve had the wine that is made there. All in all, I want to see and experience it all. I’d love to stay in a villa and walk the streets to get a good view of what it’s like to live there.
The second thing on my bucket list is to spend at least a year traveling the US in a motorhome. I’d like to pull a trailer with the motorcycles in it so that when we stop, we can ride the area and really get to know this land we live in. I always tell people that spend every year going to Mexico that I don’t understand the fun in that. We have such beautiful places here in the US to explore. The places we’ve gone on our bikes have taken my breath away with the scenery, the great roadways and the food. Traveling by motorcycle enables us to really involve ourselves in the area we’re in.
This year we’re taking our bikes and riding through Colorado. That’s one of the things on my bucket list. Colorado is a beautiful state, so much to see and do. However, we’ll be on motorcycle, so we’ll ride as much of it as we can and not much else. We have 14 people going in our group and we’ve rented two homes while we’re out there. One just outside of Boulder and one in Durango. We’ll spend 3 days in each home and ride in a different direction each day to see as much as we can see. After this trip I’ll have another bucket list motorcycle trip and that’s to ride the whole upper most US Highway 2 which runs along the upper most part of the US and then once we hit the western US, hop on Highway A1A and ride the western coast all the way down. That will probably be a month long trip and is the trip we’re saving for the year we both retire.
There are the other big life moments I have on my bucket list; I have two children who haven’t met and married their life partners, I’d love to see that. I have grandchildren and I want to watch them grow and mature into good people, attend their graduations, weddings and baby’s being born.
These are all part of my bucket list. What’s on your bucket list? Let’s share with each other then hop on over to my fellow authors and see what’s on their bucket list.
