    Let me know if/when you plan a trip to Egypt. Riding a camel is one of the tops on my bucket list! 🙂

    I have a feeling you will do all of these and many more you least expect. BTW – watch out for camel guys in Egypt – they LITERALLY tried to steal my girlfriend (working on getting that story up) – took her around the pyramids of Egypt and demanded 200$ from me “or I would never see her again”- I did a hump dive to the boulders, chased the guy down shedding my backpack – and got her. Scary – I was so mad

      Yes, we were well warned about NOT riding the camels on the other side of the pyramids (lol I guess that’s the Egyptian version of the “other side of the tracks” 😉 )
      I was prepared to jump if necessary to get off but we had no problems. The boys who led our camels assured us several times that they were ‘legit’ =)

    You’ve done so many things on your list already! Congratulations! I recently wrote my own list, and have yet to mark anything off. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Love your bucket list! Have always wanted to do one myself. Swimming with dolphins, going to Manchu Picchu and Morocco is huge on my wish list. I have however, petted a kangaroo and fed them – they are very cute. I love, love, love your pics of Santorini. Greece is on my list for next year, I hope it all works out.

      Yay, I hope you get to go to Greece and have a great time!!

    What a great bucket list! I’d love to be able to do half of these. I hope to get some debt out of my way, and eventually be able to travel a good bit. There are advantages to being single, as you well know. : ) Glad you dropped by my blog, and keep telling us about your adventures!

    Oh My….
    Now that’s a buket list !!!! You go Jen !!!

    I like your bucket list. I just love reading other people’s lists. On your number 64, I would say you definitely missed a couple “major cities”. I would say Mexico City and São Paulo, as two of the most populated cities in the world, should be on that list! 🙂

      I have to admit I am not much interested in Mexico (only been once but have no desire to go back, especially now with how chaotic things are down there) – but I do definitely want to make it to Sao Paulo someday! I like reading other people’s bucket lists too! =)

  8. August 3, 2012 12:17 pm

    That is awesome! Glad to see your crossing a lot of them off!

    I’m with you on #21 🙂
    I did #1.. but not using it 🙂
    water rafting was awesome – looking forward to the next chance I get – hopefully on a much crazier river 🙂

    I think you should switch Toronto for Montreal – It’s much more interesting! yes I know – I’m a little biased due to living there 🙂 but I believe it’s even more major even if the population is smaller!

    • August 3, 2012 5:01 pm

      Yeah I’m not really using #1 or #2 – but feels good to have them done anyways. =)
      #21 =)
      White water rafting – I agree, definitely want to go again on some higher class rapids!
      Toronto, Montreal…I just want to get over there sometime =) And PEI and Banff are also on my list of Canadian places to see!

    when you come back to Jamaica we can swim with the dolphins together! They are so amazing. Maria

      Ooh, I would love that! And I’d love to see you guys again too!
