The Reverse Bucket List Tag

Saturday 28 February 2015

After reading Kathryn's reverse bucket list post earlier this week, I was inspired to write my own! I'm getting closer to 30 and although I haven't actually written a bucket list, there are still a lot of things I'm hoping to do and a lot of places I want to visit. 

The thing is, I think too often we focus on what we want, and don't take the time to be appreciate everything we have and all we've achieved so far. With that being said, I want to introduce 50 things I've done so far! Check out my reverse bucket list.

  1. Such a great list! This is something I definitely need to do :-)

  2. You've got up to so many fun things over the years! And I can't believe you got to interview Theo Paphitis, he seems like such a genuine, friendly 'dragon'!

  3. I love this idea! What a great way to celebrate all that you've accomplished so far. You've done some really amazing things, Tara!

  4. I really enjoyed reading both yours and Kathryn's reverse bucket list! You are such a little adventurer and you've been to so many places! I hope you get to travel to even more wonderful destinations in the future :) xxx

  5. Such a great list (I'm still in awe of you winning that lush holiday) – you've definitely inspired me to write my own ahead of my birthday in April :) x

  6. Wow! Some of those items on your reverse bucket list are truly AWESOME! I wonder whether the average person has even a clue as to what an epic trek it is up the Inca Trail to the lost Inca city of Machu Picchu! The scale of a place like that is hard to comprehend even when a person is right there. I've only seen it in photos (and in the movie "Vibes" with Cyndi Lauper and Jeff Goldblum). To me, climbing an active volcano sounds nuts. Was it in Hawaii by any chance? Standing under a waterfall is awesome too. I wanted to do it but didn't reach the ones I was thinking of. I'd imagine most of them are pretty cold? Caving? Wow again! You're quite an adventurer. I wish there was a video of you collapsing in a fit of hysterical laughter - I'd love to see and hear it!

  7. This is such a lovely idea! It's lovely to look back and see what has already been done instead of looking at what is left to do. You have had such a fulfilling time! So inspirational.

  8. You're list is truly awesome. I'm glad I've been there to share some of these times! X

  9. The day I met Rowan Sharp seems to be missing form this... Other than that, awesome Idea and list

  10. Wow!! You have done so much! I am so jealous! I wish I could have done just a few on this list! You go girl!

  11. I loved reading this Tara!! I'm so in awe of all the travelling you've done, your adventures sound amazing. I'm so jealous Gwen Stefani called you her favourite because she's MY favourite haha! I genuinely don't think I even have 50 things for this list, I'd struggle to come up with 10! x

  12. Wow that is quite a list and I am filled with envy reading every single one!! I have always had a bucket list and enjoy ticking things off (and adding things to it) - I love how the list makes me look forward to things and plan things, as well as remind me of all the amazing things I've been able to to already.

  13. What an awesome idea for a blog post!! Totally want to do this too :)

    Holy crap: 32. Gwen Stefani calling me her favourite <--- WOW! What's the story?!

  14. I love how specific some of these are Tara, I am so jealous of all the travelling too and how well your remember the little things, I have a terrible memory. I also have to google glacier kayaking because it sounds amazing! Look forward to seeing what you can add to the list by the end of 2015!

  15. This is so fun, although the idea of being anywhere near a shark terrifies me haha :D xxx
