A Champagne Bucket List

Constance Halaveli Water bungalows

Right, I want you to stop looking at your to-do list (it will still be there in ten minutes time, don’t worry) and start thinking about your Bucket List. 

It’s likely that you’ll have some big scary experiences on there like leaping out of planes, and some physical challenges such as running a marathon, but what about something that is just a wonderful treat for you and your family?

Many of us focus on making our Bucket List full of things that we think we are supposed to have achieved.  Far from being motivating it can leave us feeling all the more pressurised if we haven’t run a marathon by the time we’re 50 or bungee jumped naked by the age of 45.

Now I’m not suggesting that you don’t have these on your list, but what I would like you to do is add something that isn’t about scaring yourself witless and making your spouse check your insurance policy.  I want you to upgrade your bucket list by adding a great big treat.

How wonderful would it feel to wake up in a six-star hotel, with uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean, or the South African savanna?  Or how about the ultimate in romance with couples spa treatments and supper under the stars on your own private stretch of sand?  If you have children, how amazing would it be to show them the Big 5 on a family safari, or take them diving with turtles in a sea teeming with marine life? 

These are all experiences that will never be forgotten and serve as the perfect antidote to the pressures of everyday life and the endless to-do lists we lumber ourselves with.  Adding a little luxury to your Bucket List makes it look more like my kind of bucket – one you put champagne in!
