The bucket list of things to do before you die

The Bucket List has been around for a while. Yet, it really became popular once the movie “The Bucket List” came out. Senior citizens who are at the age of retirement and who have found that they have more time on their hands will find that this is the best time to start checking items off of their bucket list. The idea of the bucket list is to list those items that you want to do before you die, or visit those places that you have always wanted to see, yet never had the time to do this. Now you have the time, and there is no better time than now to start checking off items from the bucket list you have compiled.

There are several things that a person can include on their bucket list, yet many times a person may miss some of the things that they should include on their list. The following are just a few ideas of what the person will not want to miss, and will definitely want to include on their bucket list:

  1. Witness a miracle: This is something that several seniors write down and it is possible if you keep your eyes and ears open.
  2. Visit the Great Wonders of the World: Several seniors will find that this can be easily done if they have the retirement income to do this. They will want to visit the Grand Canyon, the Pyramids in Egypt, and all the other wonders that have made the list for years.
  3. Consider looking at what is considered the modern wonders of the world. These include the Channel Tunnel in England, the CN Tower in Canada, the Empire State Building in New York, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and so forth.
