With 1,000 adventures for all ages, it’s never too soon or too late to begin the things you’ve only dreamed of doing.

We all have things we’d like to do–one day–but work, family, school, money, and responsibilities get in the way. This invaluable guide to fun, fantastic, and life-affirming activities features an eclectic range of ideas such as self-improvement, sports-related endeavors, natural wonders, cultural experiences, culinary delights, and more. From glassblowing in the Czech Republic to swimming with dolphins in New Zealand, The Bucket List is the perfect gift for the passionate traveler–an around-the-world, continent-by-continent listing of beaches, museums, monuments, islands, inns, restaurants, mountains, and more.

Each activity is location-specific and as geographically unique as bird-watching in Kenya or driving through clouds in Sri Lanka, as well as other to-dos that can be done anywhere, such as sketching a sunset behind an architectural monument. In addition to classic outdoor pursuits, the book contains advice on how to achieve some of the most popular goals for people of all ages: direct a movie, learn to play an instrument, make pottery, protect an endangered species, name a star, try a new cuisine, or learn a new language. Whether you are more active or laid-back, serious-minded or lighthearted, you are bound to discover new, stimulating activities.

5 out of 5 stars


This book was beautiful and such an amazing read. Traveling in general is something I’m passionate about, so having a whole book dedicated to all the adventures you can take around the world was perfect for me.

There are so many different adventures I want to take right now, but I’m most drawn to those in Europe and in Thailand and the Philippines. I love the history and culture of Europe, and am so excited to go there. I plan on studying abroad, so that will help to cross some of these amazing trips off my bucket list. I also love the idea of tropical travel through Thailand and the Philippines. The beautiful clear waters and cheap accommodations are calling my name!

I recommend this book to anyone who loves traveling and looking at beautiful photography!
