Day 5: Bucket List
Today’s prompt made me realise that I never ever made a bucket list. Like ever. I do have a list of things I wish to do, but it’s not like it has to happen or I have to achieve it. If it happens, well and good, if it doesn’t then, well no worries. Does that make me indecisive or half-hearted? I don’t know. Sometimes, though I find myself thinking, wish I had done that at that time. Like wishing on new year’s eve, wish we had gone to Princess Street to see the fireworks. Afterall we have been in Edinburgh for 4 years now and we haven’t been to the Hogmany fireworks even once. So here am coming up with a location specific list – if we continue to live in Edinburgh, here’s what am going to do this year:
Walk up to Arthur Seat: Shame on me, but yes, I will will will climb up to Arthur seat this yea and try to do it before summer.
Events and festivals: Make it to at least two events in the Bookfest this year. (Am so high on last year’s events, I want to continue visiting the bookfest as long as I am in Edinburgh. The atmosphere is awesome.) Attend at least one event in the fringe festival. Attend the Tattoo festival.
Visit Oban and Lake district – or at least one of them. We have been researching and researching but haven’t found time to visit these two beautiful places in Scotland.
Explore a few more libraries. I want to visit the central library of Edinburgh for quite some time now and hopefully will make it this year.
Explore a few other museums and visit some exhibitions with Shantanu. Missed the Vikings and Mary queen of Scots exhibition.
This much should suffice for a year!
