Did I hear that right? I thought to myself when my friend first suggested it. White water rafting in Bali?
The real question is should you add it to your bucket list?
This is probably one of my more unusual bucket list items, but I personally find origami to be a rather amazing and beautiful art, especially if it is done with beautiful paper. As a teacher I’d thought creating origami was going to be a great and easy activity to assign my students one chaotic Friday afternoon, but boy was I wrong. Origami is deceptively difficult.
7 Useful tips and tricks for climbing Mt Batur, a must do experience for every bucket list chaser in Bali.
My legs were burning, sweat was dripping down my back and down the sides of my face, and I huffed and puffed like a pack-a-day smoker out on a casual stroll. Apparently we were at the 90% point and only had a small section…
I never thought I’d get a fish pedicure. I’m way too ticklish. But that’s exactly the bucket list experience I found myself having in Bali.
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock lately you’ve no doubt seen the gorgeous photos of the Tegalalang Rice Terrace, either with people strolling the fields in flowing dresses or soaring over the fields on a Bali swing. I visited the rice terraces when I was in Ubud, and let me tell you there is more to this location than looking pretty. Namely there’s stairs. Lots and lots of muddy and slippery stairs.
Is swimming with turtles on your bucket list? I got to do it in the Gili Islands, Lombok Indonesia and you can to with my guide.
I realise that cities, by nature, are large and it can take you days to explore them, but there was just something about Prague that made its way into my heart and stayed there. I only had just over 24 hours to explore this city which is one of the down sides to being on a group tour, but I definitely made sure to make the most of it.
Amsterdam. The city of bicycles, tourist debauchery and tall, skinny buildings. I confess that when I went to Amsterdam I expected to see sex, drugs and maybe some rock ‘n’ roll. What I wasn’t expecting was to have my eyeballs seared out of my brain. What I wasn’t expecting was to be witness to a sex show. A sex show where my brother became the presenter’s favourite crowd participant.
Budapest: a city of gorgeous architecture, endless monuments and those thermal baths. It’s not an exaggeration to say that I left a piece of my heart in the city, and I am so incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to spend 48 glorious hours in the city exploring. While I think you could easily spend a full week in Budapest since there are so many hidden gems, we only had a limited amount of time so we had to make the most of it, and while there were a few things that we didn’t get to, I’m pretty happy with what I was able to achieve in such a short amount of time.
