Top 5 Things on my Bucket List

1) Go to Paris

I want to visit every country, but the most achievable place right now is Paris - it's only a train-ride away, after all. I was planning to go for my 16th birthday but that didn't happen, so it's my ultimate goal to fit it in sometime this year. And when I do, I'll write a massive blog post full of photos, and hopefully you'll enjoy it, because who can resist the Eiffel tower? And macarons? Exactly.

2) Write a book

My exams finish on June 10th. So close, yet so far... after that, I'll have plenty of time on my hands, at least for a while, and I plan to get the crazy story whirling around in my brain onto paper. Or a Word document. It will most likely be a Word document.

3) Watch the sun rise

There's a hill directly in front of my house, so when the weather's a bit hotter, I plan to get up super early and make my way up there to see the sun rise. The view is amazing even when it's cloudy, so I think it'll be worth it. Edit: I actually did this a few days after I originally wrote this post! You can see photos here.

4) Go on the Harry Potter Studio Tour again

I've only been on the Harry Potter Studio Tour once and that was nearly three years ago on my 14th birthday. You can see photos from the day here - I look like a fetus, you have been warned - and it was amazing. Best birthday ever. But it was still relatively new when we went, and now they've got more stuff than ever before. They even have the actual steam train from the films and you can go on it. I need to see this so badly.

5) Buy a better camera

I love my current camera, I've had it for years, and it's always served me well, but I think the time has come for it to be replaced. I keep changing my mind between the Canon 70d and the 600d, but I've been putting off buying one since last summer because I hate spending lots of money in one go. I don't know why - it just scares me. If anyone has either of those cameras, I'd appreciate your thoughts! Hopefully I can take it to Paris... and the Harry Potter Studio Tour. Yeeeah. A girl can dream. *sigh*

What's on your bucket list?

  1. What a great list and you'll love Paris!

  2. I haven't been to the Harry Potter Studios yet but I hope to go soon. I haven't got a camera but I have convinced my parents to buy me one somehow so I can venture into the world of book tube and photography! Paris is a place I want to visit mainly so I can meet a French Elsa at Disneyland! (I am a weird person) I've actually never thought of writing a book because I am the least creative person ever and my plot would be the messiest and I would just drop random similes everywhere because I'm like that! My top thing on my bucket list is to do the Time Warp in Trafalgar Square and pray that someone joins me so I don't look like a fool!!
