The idea of having a list of things to do before you die has become more popular in recent years. If you haven’t started your own list yet, we’ve got some suggestions you can kick it off with.
Go to Disneyworld
Disneyworld is a modern creation but no less enjoyable for that. It allows us all to be big kids and enjoy rides, characters and magic like never before.
Run the marathon
Travel the world
Traveling around the world is a big dream for many people. The world is so different as you move from country to country, it would be a shame not to see as much of it as possible.
Drive Route 66 in the US
Route 66 is famous the world over, and nothing beats the experience of driving along it. Why look at pictures or videos when you can see the real thing?
Meet the Queen
Okay so this one might be a little harder to achieve. But it’s easy enough to visit an event or occasion the Queen is attending, so you can at least say you’ve seen her. Of course if you’re lucky enough to be given an MBE or OBE, you’d certainly get the chance to meet her in person!
Jump out of an aeroplane
You’d have a parachute attached of course, but this amazing experience is not to be missed. Seeing the world from thousands of feet up as you head back to earth is breathtaking.
See the Seven Wonders of the World
Whether you opt for the Great Pyramid of Giza (one of the original Ancient Wonders) or the Natural Wonders such as the Great Barrier Reef, you should try and get some of them on your top ten list.
Swim with dolphins
Many people would include this experience on their list. Dolphins are amazing and highly intuitive creatures, and swimming with them is a chance to connect with the animal world like never before.
Do a firewalk
Wouldn’t you like to walk over hot coals and complete the challenge with no injuries? It requires faith and determination but if you have the desire to do it, this definitely deserves a place on your top ten list.
Take a journey on the Orient Express
This is a magical experience and while you wouldn’t want any murders to occur (a la Agatha Christie) you’d certainly enjoy the drama and finesse this train journey would offer you.
Of course there are many other things you can look forward to doing other than the ones above. You’ll no doubt come up with your own superb top ten list of things to do before you die, depending on your likes and loves. In fact you might even extend your list to include many more items if you can think of enough things to do.
