Ah, the infamous Bucket List. When Michael from EasyHiker asked me to share my “Bucket List” I was, honestly, a little overwhelmed. Yes, overwhelmed because my list is quite large and I’m sure you don’t want to spend that much time reading this post. How to cut it down? Instead of sharing countries or cities I’d most like to visit I whittled it down to some European adventures I’d most like to enjoy.
In no particular order, here is a sampling of my Bucket List – European Style!
While thinking about my Bucket List, I realized I’ve actually shared quite a few of these already. In Springtime Yearnings I shared my desire to Hike in Black Forest, Canoe along the Dordogne plus bike and taste wine near the Moselle River in Germany. Italy’s South Tirol is still one of the places I would most like to visit. The Dolomites are just too dramatic and picturesque to not see in person.
Here are more European adventures I’d most like to enjoy:
Bastille Day in Paris
Sharing this day of celebration with the Parisians would be fabulous. I can only imagine the pageantry of the military parade down the Champs Elysees and the beauty of the fireworks with the Eiffel Tower as their back drop.
Let’s see, I love Bavaria, Munich is one of my favorite cities and, in my opinion, beer is a food group. So why wouldn’t I need to experience the Granddaddy of all beer festivals? One thing I wouldn’t miss is the opening day parade. I hope they still roll barrels of beer down the street!
Cruising the Greek Isles
A lot of folks cruise the Greek Isles and while I want to join their ranks, I want to rent my own sail boat so we can steer our ship around the Aegean as we wish! Enjoying the blue water, culture, sunsets and ruins while reliving mythology from the bows of our own little boat seems quite luxurious.
German Christmas Markets
About 2 months ago I shared one of my fondest birthday wishes in All I Want For My Birthday. At this point in time, I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate my birthday than being in Germany visiting some of the magical Christmas markets! Gluhwein, German trinkets and beer. . . need I say more?
Gliding and twirling across a dance floor at one of the amazing balls during Imperial Ball season in Vienna is one of things this girl dreams of. Of course, I’ll be dressed to the nines in a full length formal gown complete with gloves and I will float across the dance floor thanks to those dance lessons I desperately need to take!
Live in Europe
One of my fondest dreams is to live in Europe for at least 3 months. I want to experience the culture and history that Europe offers. I haven’t figured out where I would spend my time but I have a feeling a lot of it would be spent in some little Bavarian village!
Well those are a few of the items that have made it to my European Bucket List.
