My Bucketlist

My Bucketlist!

Why a Bucketlist?

 

So named after the movie where the rich and miserable Edward Cole played by Jack Nicholson meets poor and happy Carter Chambers (Morgan Freeman). Despite having nothing in common apart from their terminal illness, a deep friendship is forged when, between vomiting up Chemotherapy bile, the two decide to write down and pursue a list of the outlandish things they have always wanted to do.

 

I started the list sometime in 2008 when I was planning our family trip around the world. It has since then been undergoing a big overhaul, and today it looks like this. It will for sure change from now and till the day I die, but hopefully it will be all yellow by that time.
