My Reverse Bucket List

It is easy to think about what you still want to achieve but sometimes it’s important to look back on the things that you have done and be grateful for the opportunities  you have had. I recently drew up my bucket list and decided to balance it out with my reverse bucket list -a list of bucket list items that I’ve had the opportunity to achieve already. Although some of these were before I started blogging so I haven’t written about them.

So here is my Reverse Bucket List

I have walked on the Great Wall of China

Hiya! Amazing blog! I happen to be a day-to-day visitor to your website (somewhat a lot more like addict ) of this site. Just wanted to say I appreciate your blogs and am searching forward for more!


wow amazing places you have visited girl.


This is a cute idea- kind of like practicing gratitude. I am guilty of worrying too much about the future and not acknowledging all the good things I have done/am doing in my life. And the photos are marvelous of course. 🙂


love this! such a great idea 🙂


This is such a cool idea, I might try and do this for myself as well 🙂 Would love to walk on the Great Wall f China, that’s still on my bucket list 🙂


    Thank you Doro. The Great Wall of China is totally fascinating!


You are so adventurous! Some of the things here I’d love to do but not others such as going in a hot air balloon and the helicopter. Oh I like my feet on firm ground! 🙂


    Thanks Jameela. I love the air but not the water (unless I’m on a boat), so I wouldn’t do things like snorkelling and diving 🙂


This is such a cute idea! My reverse list is almost identical to yours, just haven’t been to India or in a hot air balloon.


    Thanks Liya. That’s awesome. I keep on remembering things to add on to the list though.


I love this! I have always wanted to do a list of things that I’ve done that I’m so proud of. This is exactly the inspiration I needed! Amazing list you’ve got here.


    Thanks Jonelle. Yes, sometimes it’s a good idea to focus on our achievements instead of that never-ending list of things we still want to do.

OMG epic adventures Sara!! love the photo journal


    Thanks Enricoh. You know I live to travel 🙂


That’s a great idea! Sometimes we’re so busy planning ahead for future holidays that we forget to stop and look back at what we have done/seen.


    Thanks Natalie. I must admit -I got the idea from some of the other bloggers.
