Bucket List Update

You may recall a post where I added things to my bucket list once I started working on ships (this one). I can now say, that after my last contract I have accomplished the following things on my bucket list…

Hike up a mountain – I’ve hiked a few all over the world, but I have yet to hike to the summit, so I can only halfway cross this off…
Swim with dolphins – Would like to try it in a natural setting, not a giant swimming pool
Horseback ride in water
Horseback ride bareback – have to to ride them in the water!
Stand under a waterfall – I visited/climbed 4 of them in 4 different countries!
Ride a camel – I did this in two countries: Jamaica and Tunisia!
See Mayan ruins
Pub Crawl (in a foreign city) – I went on an awesome one in London!
Visit the Ice Bar – Went to the original one in Stockholm, but apparently there are better ones elsewhere, perhaps this will stay on my list for now ūüėČ

These two were done in my last contract….
-Lumberjack show
-Help in a beach cleanup

I have also now danced in other countries, stayed in a hostel, and had an understandable conversation with someone in another language (they understand my French in Tunisia!)

I also thought of a few new things to add to my list as my new itineraries open up more possibilities….

  • Attend a concert in a cave
  • Tour “Wine Country” in California
  • See wild kangaroos and koalas
  • Experience a “White Night”
  • See the Northern Lights
  • Visit all 7 continents
  • Go to a “swim-up” bar
  • Visit an Egyptian pyramid
  • Attend a Carnaval celebration
  • Visit all the Disneylands
  • Participate in a Flash Mob
  • Ride an elephant

I know I will get to cross a few of these off soon as my next journey takes me to the top of the world and then over to Asia!

My Life is Your Vacation

I’m writing this about 3 weeks into my current vacation from ships. ¬†This time, I left the ship in Jolly England, so decided to delay my flight home a week and explore some of the country. ¬†I spent a few days staying with friends down south followed by a couple days partying and sightseeing in London- it’s what I would call a proper vacation. ¬†Since being home though I haven’t done much besides watch TV (I had to download all the updated episodes of my favorite shows once I finally got decent internet again!) ¬†I also have spent way too many hours editing all of my photos and videos from my last 7 months on the ship. ¬†This just made me more stir crazy. ¬†So stir crazy in fact, that I decided to see if they needed some help in a different position for the summer. ¬†Turns out they did.

So now I leave again in two weeks to go back to Jolly England and the ship I just left this month! ¬† The funny part is, the day I left (somewhat begrudgingly), I told everyone I would be back some way at some point. ¬†I guess sometimes the universe really does take your suggestions! ¬†Definitely a different mentality from my last “vacation”.

When I leave the ship again, I’ll have three weeks home before I leave again for the other side of the world. ¬†I guess when my work is your vacation, why would I want to be stuck back at your work?!?!?
