So this is how I’m doing with my 30 Before 50 Bucket List. But don’t worry I still have a few years to go before I complete it! In 2019 I crossed five items off the list and made progress with a couple more. And I still have a few gaps, incase I think of a few more things I’d like to do. What’s on your Bucket List? x

    1. I have done both, but quite a few years ago now. Puffins on Holy Island Northumberland and whales in Canada. Both were epic. I would definitely do both again. X

  1. I’ve got Peak district on my list as well, alongside finish the wainwrights (i’m at 163 currently so 51 to do). I want to watch a film in the Alhambra cinema in Keswick so similar to yours. I want to go to Tintagel castle in Cornwall, which is a local one for me compared to the others, and I’ve a list of mountains in Britain, outside of Cumbria, as long as my arm to climb as well!!

    1. Blimey that sounds like a lot to do, but I have every confidence you will achieve them! I need to go to that cinema in Keswick too. I chickened out of going when we stayed in Keswick over Christmas as I would have had to go on my own, we had the dog with us and didn’t want to leave him to himself in the cottage. I will go one day! I have been to one nearish home a couple of times, The Palace in Longridge, it’s brill. 🙂

  2. I don’t have a bucket list as such, and if I did it would keep changing! I’d like to cycle round Cumbrae again – we did it once years ago when we had our own bikes, but it would be so easy to do by bike hire. Given the foot issues I commented about before I’m wondering if I should go back to cycling.

  3. Cumbrae is nostalgic for me as I cycled round it with my uncle and sister on our Scottish holidays as children. I would love to do it again! We used to visit Millport via the ferry from Largs I think. You could hire bikes and try it, let me know how you get on, you will probably do it before I do….Xx

  4. I don’t think I would have time to do 30 before I am 50 as I only have nine months to go! I think my bucket list would be much shorter though, I want to learn to crochet, go to Prague on a city break, make more quilts, buy some land and plant an orchard and walk a long distance path with my children.

    1. Well I definitely think you could achieve at least a couple of those before your birthday. Some friends of ours recently walked the Cotswold way with their children, and they all loved it. The Dales Way is on my list but not sure when we will do it. It would be great to own a bit of land. Xx

    1. I remember your post! I guess it’s still on my list because it’s the first place I ever really wanted to go to for afternoon tea, and I still haven’t been. I like the idea of eating afternoon tea whilst looking down on the city views. X

  5. Great list and well done on your cross offs. I don’t have a Bucket list, but then I don’t like the big number I’d have to put after my 30 before – so that’s probably why I’m avoiding having one.

  6. You have a wonderfully imaginative list! you;’re lucky to live in the UK where distances are short, plus there’s millions of events & activities to try or do. Enjoy! P.S. I envy you such proximity to Europe – pancakes in Amersterdam , easily done. For me a long-haul flight and heavy money.
