31 Day Blog Challenge: Day 29: Top Things on my Bucket List

There are a few things that we'd like to do in the next decade.  We've always wanted to go to Paris so we've earmarked our 25th anniversary (2018) for that trip.  We picked Viking River Cruises's Paris and the Heart of Normandy cruise so that's number one on the bucket list.

Number two comes just two years later and it's another river cruise.  This one, to be determined, includes a stop at the Passion Play in Oberammergau.  The Passion Play is performed every ten years so it's on the bucket list for 2020.

Next up is the following year when we hope to be back in Kettlewell to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Hendrix Family Christmas 2001.  We spent a lovely holiday with my parents, my sister, and her husband in the charming Yorkshire village of Kettlewell.  We had hoped to go back for the 15th anniversary, but there are too many other things conflicting with that date so we've pushed it to 2021.  We hope to stay in the same holiday cottage and revisit many of the sites that were so special to us the last time we were there.

Just a few short years later, if all goes according to plan, it will be 2024 and time for Vic to retire. Time for life after the Navy, a trip of a lifetime to celebrate his amazing career, and our forever home.  So number four and five are our retirement home and a cruise across the Atlantic on Cunard.

No pictures of the retirement home since we don't know where retirement will take us.  I hope it's the Pacific Northwest but we'll go wherever Vic finds a job that he enjoys.

I've just realized that we have quite an impressive list from 2018-2024.  Six short years and a lot of traveling.  Better get a travel fund started now!

  1. Great post, Pamela. Despite the fact I spent years working on cruise liners, on my bucket list is a Cunard trip across the Atlantic from Southampton to New York - the original 'cruise', I guess. Don't know when mine will be yet, though!
