    • Thanks Jessica! What an amazing honor!

  1. how about attend a Native American pow wow in the united states?

    • Will have to add this to our list! Never been to one – pass Indian Reservations all the time driving through Florida but will have to stop and check them out!! Thanks :)

  2. Hi Meg & Mike, your site is awesome! I just found it as I entered a post on Webjet’s Blogger Sydney page too. It’s funny as we share a similar story. I am British and met my boyfriend Steve (who’s Australia) in India and we have been travelling for the last 3 years together. We’ve just come back from a trip through Africa and are based in Sydney for a while to save more money. There’s just so much to see out there! When you go back into the 9-5 world, you forget there are still people like you out there. It’s a very comforting thought as a lot of people just don’t get the travelling bug. It’s a shame really. Anyway, thanks for sharing your travels!

    • Hi Annabel! Thanks for your message – I’m so glad you enjoy our site!

      We do indeed have a lot in common! So fantastic that your long distance relationship also worked out – it’s amazing when it all just falls into place. And very cool that you found both a partner and a travel buddy lol I’ve always thought that travel will either completely make or break a relationship, and if you can travel well with someone, it’s a match for life!

      Hold onto that insane sense of wanderlust – there’s always more world to discover after you’ve saved up the money again. We’re thinking we’ll probably head back into a 9-5 at some point soon – the money won’t last forever :D! There will always be nomads out there roaming the globe; feel free to reach out if you ever want to share stories!!

      Safe and happy travels, and happy holidays!

      Meg

    • Lol ours is constantly growing as well – we get one item crossed off, and another 2 appear … it’s a bit of a never ending cycle really :D!

      Wicked video – looks like the GoPro came in really handy! Would love to have gotten that close to elephants – would have been such an amazing experience! Here’s to an even better 2015 and killing off more of that bucket list :)

  3. What a long list! We travel addicts make, remake, edit and add more on to our list – don’t we?! LOL

  4. Hi Megan, love your bucket list. I have visited New Orleans for Mardi Gras several times. I would recommend going to Mobile, AL as well since that is where Mardi Gras originated. You will love New Orleans. I have some posts on what to do around NOLA. Here is my bucket list: http://smileandtravel.com/linas-bucket-list/

    • Thanks for the tip Lina! We drove through Mobile earlier in the year actually and really loved the vibe. I think I might just swap out the NOLA Mardi Gras for the parade in Mobile in that case! Heading over to your bucket list now – I love checking out what other people have on theirs too; thanks for the link!

    • Thanks Jamie! That’s a brilliant suggestion – adding it to the list now :)

  5. waaahh you need to do the aurora borealis soonest sweetie! its an amazing amazing AMAZING experience!

    I have yet to do Machu Pichu, target 2017! For my list i have crossed out Speak a new language, just learned French last year. May I suggest this to you?

    • I know, I can’t wait!! Aurora borealis is like #1 on my list at the moment, so hoping I can make it happen soon.

      You’ll love Machu Pichu, such a spectacular place. When you do book to go also include Huayna Picchu in your ticket – it’s the mountain which you can climb behind MP and it looks down over the ruins – the most spectacular views!

      I’ll add learning French to the list for this year!

      Thanks Carla! Happy travels :)

  6. Great bucketlist. I love the inspiration that i get from it.
    I live in Amsterdam near flower park Keukenhof and the tulip fields.
    Every Spring lots of visitors enjoy the amazing colors of the flowers.

    Bye, Marco

    • Thanks Marco :) I’ve heard about the tulip fields in the Netherlands, and would love to visit them at some stage. What a beautiful time Spring must be for you!

      Happy travels!
