  1. At the tip of the top of this hermit’s bucket list is a boat ride on Loch Ness. Summer of 2020 would have seen it turn into reality, but, well, you know. The remainder of my bucket is filled with books, pages and pages of glorious books.

  2. Well, we just returned from finally visiting family in Alaska. First time in 2 years! Next, looking to go on a cruise that has been canceled twice! Fingers crossed!

  3. How can I pick just one place from my bucket list? I love to travel! But, if I had to pick one, I think I would go with Portugal.

  4. At the top of my bucket list is to wake up everyday and see what is in store for me this day! I look forward to doing different things and increasing my knowledge. Oh, and reading a good book.

  5. I think on the very top of my new post chronic illness bucket, is to complete and publish my first trilogy, and if possible complete my list of series and stand alone book ideas. As well as some kids book ideas I’ve had in my head since I was in school.

    And almost as important as that, is to travel again. I got injured and sick in 2014, and I’ve only been able to go to the west of Canada since then. And I really, really miss traveling. I’ve lived abroad and so I really do miss being elsewhere besides the walls of this home. I only travel bow through books and tv, and my writing, and I just.. I’m hoping I can find a way to do some traveling again once I learn to control my condition. 🤞🏼🗺

  6. At the top of my bucket list is going back to Cape Cod to watch the sunsetting over the dunes or the bay. The feel of sand on the toes and water lapping at the shore is one of seemingly endless time.

  7. Top of my bucket list is to be able to safely travel again. We are still very much still stranded at home where I live

  8. Would love to travel by train through the Pacific Northwest. I’ve seen so many gorgeous photos, I’m sure it would be amazing in person.

  9. Top of my bucket list? I have accomplished some of them. Most have to do with travel. But I would love to get my books published.

  10. We travel extensively. Unfortunately we are not able to go abroad so what better time to explore the U.S.? Just this past month we finished our goal of visiting all 50 states! This year we visited 22 in 1 month but only 4 were needed to complete the goal. Mount Rushmore was my ultimate goal and I achieved it! Our next travel goal is to drive to Alaska and see the Northern Lights.

  11. London and lovers…seem to go together. May the masks be done and the
    love games begun. I love all the already mentioned romantic spots. And yes let
    love triumph.

  12. Would love this great book – and hopefully read it on my future cruise that my friends and I are tentatively planning.

  13. I want to travel through the Autumn colors here in my beautiful mountains of VA. I want to enjoy all the Fall Festivals, all the apple-related activities, make pumpkin pies and pumpkin bread, and celebrate Oktoberfest–I love this time of year!!!

  14. I’m drinking Steven Smith Green Jasmine Silver Tips tea, Dessert is ice cream and cookies, and we are talking Peril by Woodward and Costa, The Glass Princess by Gena Showalter, and It Started With A Dog by Julia London. All books are talked about!!

  15. Scotland. We’re lucky we didn’t actually book the trip we were planning before the world shut down. I’ve got a friend who lost most of her money for the trip she and her dauughters were set to take a couple weeks after everything got serious.

  16. The top of my bucket list is returning to Glacier National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Both wonderful destinations.

  17. I look forward to reading both of these books. kc dyer is new to me and am looking forward to reading one of her books.

  18. Well, other than I think my bucket has a leak, right now what’s on top of my leaky bucket list is finishing all the painting I’ve been doing and then spend some serious time reading. Would love new books to read. 🙂

  19. Visiting Santorini, Greece is at the very top of my travel bucket list! I’d love to visit Hawaii and Italy also!

  20. My number one bucket list is to go on a safari in Africa. I am a huge animal lover and dream of see these amazing creatures in the wild.

  21. The top of my bucket list is visiting the British Isles, particularly Ireland. My mother’s family is from there – her brother was born in Ireland, she in the US. Most of my siblings have gone back to see the old homestead and visit distant relatives. I want very much to do that. Now that I’m retired I hope it is in my near future!

  22. Bucket list: Besides ziplining in the Appalachian mountains, I want to go to North Scotland. In a earlier visit I never got further north than the Trossachs. I really want to visit the Highlands and Skye.

  25. The top of my bucket list would be a leisurely drive across the United States getting to know the people of this country.

  29. The top of my bucket list is to take a tour of Italy especially Rome, Venice,

    Florence and Vesuvius. I’ve read so more about these places I just have to

    experience them in person.

  30. My bucket list is topped by a visit to Prince Edward Island with my sister – perhaps when cancer and covid ease up we’ll get to go!

  31. Top of my bucket list would be having time to actually relax with the family and read! It’s so hectic day to day that carving time out can be a challenge!

  32. I would love to explore Italy and Europe along with their wines and wonderful food with my husband and then visit the Maldive islands and bora bora for some beaches and beautiful water. In each setting finding a quiet spot to enjoy time with a book and soak up the atmospheres I would be experiencing.

  33. I would be a very lucky grandma to take a trip with my four grown children and twelve loving grandchildren. We have never spent time all together. I haven’t been able to visit with half of them. So this is on my bucket list.

  34. Getting to see One Republic in concert. I am actually getting to see them in Scotland in April! I can’t wait to go to Europe for the weekend to see them!

  35. I would love to fly to Paris and take trains all over Europe. I love meeting people, taking photos and trying new things.

  36. No list, but I want to be able to take my mom to Dodge City Kansas where her favorite TV show Gunsmoke was filmed. Thanks for the chance.

  37. What’s at the top of my bucket list is, going to an Ohio state football game. Also traveling to Paris, Italy, Germany, the Holy Lands

  38. I don’t have a bucket list but I would love for things to return back to “normal” without having to worry about everything. Thank you for the chance.

  39. My bucket list is the hope that I will be able to revisit the favorite places that I have visited during my life. Because of my age and my health I hope that I will be able to visit a few of my favorites but I have been so blessed that my parents took us everywhere and whenever they had a vacation off we went. My husband and I continued my trips even taking all 6 of our kids with us so even if I can’t travel now I can remember wonderful places and people I’ve been lucky to meet.

  40. Top of my bucket list is moving farther north so we have actual seasons to look forward to instead of year round heat.

  41. A trip to Italy is at the top of my bucket list, hoping my husband & I can go for our tenth anniversary in 2024🤞

  42. I’m drinking red wine, dessert is definitely dark chocolate cake or a flourless chocolate cake with raspberries and the book I’m talking about is one I’m currently reading which is fabulous; “The Last Green Valley” by Mark T. Sullivan. Absolutely terrific, takes place in Eastern Europe after World War I and during World War II. Sullivan is really good at writing great fiction based on true stories.

  43. At the top of my bucket list would be travel to Europe! We have been waiting for our kids to get a little older before tackling international travel 🙂

  44. Bucket List Topper – once pandemic not heath threat to travel again … I want to see Italy from top to bottom. Also want to take cross country (or trans-Canada) train trip.

  45. I have more of a non-bucket list now that I’m of a certain age and retired – if I haven’t done it already I don’t have to if I don’t want to! So my bucket list is fun and as always for October starts with watching all my classic horror movies this month.

  46. At the top of my bucket list is to go to the east Canadian Coast, and especially check out Prince Edward Island. Go to Anne of Green Gable house/museum. Eat seafood by the sea.

  47. I am sooooo envious of the travel opportunities experienced in gaining background for stories.

    One of my most interesting adventures was attending a wedding in a yurt in Mongolia. The celebration lasted 12+ hours, but the adventure aspect extended to us getting back to Ulaanbaatar.

    Top of my bucket list is to start traveling again, anywhere.

  48. I don’t really have a bucket list. I hope to continue to enjoy life with my husband and to continue to enjoy all the wonderful books available. Thanks for the chance and sharing your creativity through your books.

  49. For my bucket list, I would love to visit Big Spring, Texas. That’s where I was born, but we moved away shortly after that.

  50. I am feeling pure envy at your travel adventures! I’ve been to Scotland once and loved it. Isn’t it funny how you can go somewhere you’ve never been before and feel at home there?

  51. Top of my bucket list is to go on a Mediterranean cruise. We would also like to be able to take entire family on cruise.

  52. The top of my bucket list is to have all 8 of my grandkids in one place at the same time. That is scheduled to happen in December right now. Hope nothing happens to change it. Most of the grandkids are in one place, except one and he lives with us, so I see him everyday. The others? Maybe yearly, but the way things have been, I was lucky to have seen them a year ago last year in August.

  53. I actually haven’t given much thought to a bucket list. I guess I might like to go see all the pretty places in Italy.
