Book review: Bucket List of 1000 adventures big and small
WHATEVER your dreams, this book will help you tick them off your lifelong to do list.
We all have a list of things we dream of doing-one day-but work, family, school, money, and responsibilities can all get in the way.
But what if you had no duties to carry out? No boundaries on what you could experience. No limits to what you could see with your own eyes and encounter firsthand. What would you do?
The Bucket List is a collection of 1,000 adventures to be had across every continent, from seeing the northern lights from an igloo in Finland to panning for gold in California, from cruising the Galapagos Islands to ninja training in Japan.
Some experiences are unique outdoor pursuits in incredible locations around the world-such as climbing an active volcano in Italy or ice diving in Antarctica-but others are ambitions that can be replicated anywhere, including trying a local cuisine, milking a cow, brewing your own beer, or simply mastering a foreign language.
The Bucket List is the perfect gift for the passionate traveller: an around-the-world, continent-by-continent listing of beaches, museums, monuments, islands, inns, restaurants, mountains, and more.
Whether it's a gap year before university, a holiday, or a life-changing retirement, this is the handbook to inspire you to do something you've always wanted to, but never thought you could.
Published by Murdoch Books, Kath Stathers's The Bucket List is available this month from bookstores. RRP $39.99.
