Bucket List of Boating

Bucket list of boating

No matter how hard we try, there never seems to be enough time to do all the things we love, the things that make us more of the person we really are. Everyday life is stressful and busy, we get caught up between careers, family and compensating needs and time and even though these are important elements of our lives, we can all agree that slowing down every once in a while to focus on ourselves is important. It may seem as though we will have to wait forever to do the things that we feel resonate with us. Well, we don’t, lets run through a few potential additions to your bucket list.

Life at sea is perfect for kicking things off your bucket list. Living on a boat gives you the luxury of not having to worry about getting from one place to another, because remember, you get to live on a vessel… The less you worry about continual struggles, the more time you have to reflect on yourself and be more of the person you really are.

So finally you have the time, let’s plan things out:

  1. See a meteor shower

Have you ever gazed at the night sky in summer, you must have spotted a meteor or two shooting through the horizon. As all star gazers know, you need a dark environment, away from city lights to see the spectacle of a meteor shower. And there is no better place for this than the open seas. Add the reflection of light on the surface of the water and you get a once in a lifetime experience you will never forget.

  1. Read the book you started ten years ago

Yes, things like reading are getting postponed regardless of how much we love books. There is no better place to take that massive novel you started reading years ago. And reading under the sun while traveling to your favorite destination,  a dream come true.

  1. Start a diary

It may seem that living aboard will be less eventful, but this is not true at all. Start a diary and write down all the small changes that happen when you have enough time to reflect on yourself.

  1. Learn a foreign language

What better way to learn a new language than visiting the country that it’s native to. Visit the locals when you dock and practice your comprehension, then study some more when you are back on board.

  1. Learn how to make things with your hands

Need a new hobby? Feel free to express yourself like never before.. Try picking up some skills from locals you visit while traveling and incorporate them into your craftsmanship. Making things brings joy and boosts self-confidence. And who knows? Maybe you will find your true calling in life while crafting something out of nothing, without the pressure of it having to be perfect.

  1. Local foods and cuisine

I bet there are things you never wanted to try and taste before. How about changing that? There is no better way to experience the culture of new places you visit. So try that prickly little fruit. Just remember to stay safe and eat your way into different cultures.

  1. Diving

  1. The new bucket list

The best thing about bucket lists is that they never end. Once you go off grid and start experiencing new things in life, it takes a course of its own. So don’t ever run out of things to do for the first time., life is an adventure. Or at least it should be.
