The Ultimate Bucket List

Scott's Ultimate Bucket List

Scott’s Bucket List

I started writing my bucket list in 2017 in Chichester, England when I was working away as a construction site manager (I was staying on my own and had nothing to do in the evenings other than sit on Facebook and scroll through videos). One of those ‘travel inspiration’ videos came up, followed by countless more. From then on, I decided to make the ultimate bucket list of around 100 things; this was one of the only things keeping me going through the stress, hard times of working away and staying on my own, and before I knew it, I had well over 500 goals which is ever growing to this day.

As I complete them, I cross them off and take a picture of myself doing it (Alex bought me an engraved album for Christmas one year which I’ve started to fill). I’m posting this on here, as I’m hoping to inspire people in a similar situation who are either stressed out or a bit fed up to start your own list to work towards, so here are some of the ultimate bucket list ideas for you all. It changed my life!
