I love to travel and I have a lot of things to do. But I am also a person that is scared easily. Yesterday I screamed because a frog randomly jumped on the sidewalk. Somehow I lost my fearlessness along the way and this bucket list is my way to get it back. I want to feel brave again and so I wrote down some things that scare me. You might think that it isn’t that scary at all but for me, a lot of these things require a lot of courage.

This list is growing faster than I can check things off, but I am serious about it. If you stay tuned, you will see more and more adventures that I experienced!

Wildlife Adventure Bucket List

  • Go on a safari in Africa and see the big five
  • Ride my pony at a beach – Only those who have experienced it can understand how it feels to ride one’s own horse at the beach. The fresh air, the salt everywhere around you, the speed, the strength of that animal you are sitting on. There is nothing that you can compare to it in my opinion.
  • Swim with a whale shark
  • Hold a koala
  • Swim with hammerhead sharks
  • Cage-Diving with white sharks in South Africa – could there be a bigger adrenaline rush? Seeing these huge creatures up close is an incredible dream of mine, that I wished to fulfil for a while!
  • Swim with whales
  • Visit a sloth sanctuary
  • See turtles breed or hatch
  • Swim with manatees
  • Swim with turtles  – there was not a single day in my life that was better than the day I swam with turtles. Before I was in love with the ocean, but afterwards there was an undeniable love for it. These gentle create just sparked the desire for me to see more of that!

Holding a bird on my hand was cool, yet I was afraid that this ruthless little thing would hurt me.
Riding on the beach is one of the most incredible experiences you can make, especially if this horse is your own and you love it with all your heart.

I got to do a boat tour in Cambodia, where we headed out by night. We then had to jump in the deep black water and once in, you could see the glittering algae each time you move. It was such a special event, although jumping into the water is scary at first!

Yes, this is something I want to see so bad.
