Exploring life experiences at home and beyond – Destination Happiness

Six of one , half a dozen of the other


WordPress. Daily prompt challenge – Write a six-word story about what you think the future holds for you, and then expand on it in a post.

Todays dreams paint the future canvas

I’m a bucket lister. I read about the idea once and began creating a list. I tried to only include those things I could achieve for myself , that don’t rely on the actions of others.

Here’s a short version of my list. The order doesn’t reflect the importance. I’ve included some of my favourites which already have ticks. The list is dynamic and I add to it as I find new things that interest me


To visit Northern Territory – walk around Uluru, see Kata Tjuta ( or The Olgas as I always think of them ) see Aboriginal art in its environment and visit Kakadu BIG TICK

Snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef. BIG TICK

Travel to every state and territory of Australia. BIG TICK

These above canvases have certainly lived up to my dreams.

Visit Port Douglas and the Daintree Rainforest

Visit USA again and see Abby Lee Dance Studio – and hopefully Abby Lee 🙂

Visit the Blue Grotto and Pompeii

Visit Churchill to se the polar bears in the wild

African wildlife safari

Go to the Melbourne Cup

See the Canadian Rocky Mountains by train

Fly over Antarctica – preferable ice class 🙂

Do a Sound of Music Tour


Cook a three course meal ( that’s tasty ,not burnt and looks like the recipes pictures)

Lean more conversational Italian

Attend a dawn service for ANZAC DAY

Be on Sydney Harbour for New Years Eve

Write a children’s picture book

Write a collection of short stories

Watch Sunrise and Kochie ( the tv show) from the glass windows at Martin Place

Do you have a list of dreams? Care to share a few with me here??

Author: Travelling Macs

A mum to 2 grown up children with young families of their own, who always make me proud. I'm a wife, grandmother,friend, sister, a recently retired teacher and a beginning ukulele player. I love eating great food but am becoming interested in cooking. Love traveling around this great country in which I live and worldwide more recently. Often found traveling with my husband Brian. I write for pleasure and if it's read (and enjoyed) by others then that's a bonus! 2014 saw me begin the 'new' me. Working hard at leaving the fear of 'what if' behind and replacing it with YOLO adventures. :)

    This is a great place to record your bucket list items and tick them off ( Gillian claims spotters fee on this one, she converted me).
    And as for your final one- just do it!! LOL

  2. Some random ones from mine:
    Paint my toenails red (done)
    Put my feet in the English Channel (done!)
    New Years Eve in my trifecta of cities – London, New York and Sydney ( one ticked off).


  3. When I was young and glued To the black and white TV watching The World of Disney on Sunday nights, I never dreamed I would or could travel to other countries.
    I watched people spinning in the teacups and was amazed by Frontier Land…tall tales but true from the legendary past.
    15 years later, I was one of those people in the spinning teacups. I didn’t even have a bucket list then, but that one is well and truly ticked off.

    • You have seen some great things on your trips – least on the trips since I have known you. It is amazing how small the world has come since our days as kids. Seeing those ”tv places’ have always added to the thrill of travel to me 🙂

  4. Love your list! Especially the cooking one ! Ha ha !!!!! My list grows longer each time I read a book with faraway places in it. So much to see ! Hope to be off again next year to cross some off the list ! xx

I enjoy reading comments so don't forget to add one please :)
