Some call it a bucket list, I call it a bonus.


A little while ago I’ve seen a post on Instagram about The „Big Five for Life“ which made me think about what those Big Five are for me and thinking about this filled me with gratitude because it made me realize that I already ticked off so much of what could have made it to my top 5 bucket list:

seeing the Northern Lights
visiting Finland
living abroad for at least several months
studying something that interests me

Just to name a few examples.

So today I don’t really have a bucket list anymore, I feel I don’t need one. I’ve experienced so much that I feel everything else would only be a bonus, not a must. I know that most people in this world will never see or do these things as they are far less privileged than I am and that I’m just very lucky I was born in a country and in circumstances that allowed me to follow my dreams and make them come true.

However, there are still a few things I would like to do in the future..
So far most of the things I dreamt about in the past that I wrote down came true so I thought it might be a good idea to do this again.

So here are some things I can think of right now that I would love to experience one day or to have in my life but if it doesn’t happen then that’s okay, too. If it’s meant to be, it will be and if not then there will be other experiences waiting for me.

(random order)

  1. travel along the coast here in Australia as I’ve been in the country for 14 months now but haven’t seen much yet and especially not much other than the bush (likely to happen in the near future)
  2. travel to Iceland
  3. travel to New Zealand
  4. hopefully visit Sweden, Norway, Finland and France again at some point of my life (so much love for all these countries)
  5. marry and have a little romantic wedding wearing a beautiful dress
  6. see all the Harry Potter places in London
  7. make money with something that truly fulfills me.. and if only in combination with some other job
  8. finally see two of my favourite bands (Alcest, Within Temptation) live, I’ve seen almost all bands I ever wanted to see but it just never happened with these two
  9. visit the place in Germany where I was born (Friedrichroda, Thuringia) as I’ve never been there, I grew up in another part of the country
  10. visit a musical (yes, I’ve never seen a musical ever in my life)
Lies doch auch...
