reverse bucket list
We live in a world where we are always looking for that next adventure, striving to achieve goals and deadlines and putting ourselves out there to explore and discover as much as we possibly can whilst we can. Society dictates that we should be looking ahead at what's next and to always be striving for that next adventure. That's all great and I do live my life with goals and lists of things I want to achieve in my life but, whilst we are always looking ahead it's very easy to forget what we have already achieved, adventures we've already had and places we have explored.
It's so easy to get sucked into what other people have achieved and what other people are doing that makes us feel like we are being left behind or that we haven't achieved anything in our lives- but in reality we aren't being left behind and we have achieved so much! We need to start looking back to really appreciate how far we have come in our own individual lives.
As the title of the post suggests I am looking back at the adventures I've already had and the places I have already explored in this 'Reverse Bucket List'. I want to think about all of the amazing places I have been lucky enough to see and explore and remind myself that I am very lucky to have visited these amazing places! This isn't a post about bragging to how many places I've visited or how many holidays I've been on, it's a post to really appreciate the amazing travel opportunities I've had and to encourage YOU to look backwards from time to time to really appreciate how far you've come.
New York city
Probably one of my most EPIC holidays ever was a week in NYC back in 2014.
As far back as I can remember NYC was at the top of my bucket list so being able to tick that one off was one of the best things ever. I remember when I first arrived that all I could do was look up all the time as I couldn't believe how tall the buildings were! The whole experience was just mind-blowing for me! The food, sights, people and just general hustle and bustle of the city was like being in another world, but in a good way. The size and scale of the city is immense so obviously you can't even begin to scratch the surface with just one week there but we managed to do plenty of the 'touristy' stuff- the Empire State building, Times Square and a helicopter ride over the city were just a few of the things we did. I'm sure I will return one day to experience more areas of the city and do things I didn't do last time.
