Have you made your bucket list for 2022 yet? At the beginning of a new year, the majority of people usually start with a list of things they wish to achieve in that particular year. They are commonly referred to as new year resolutions; you probably have yours set already. If you keenly analyze these resolutions, you will notice that they most entail things such as getting a new job, going to the gym or starting a business.

I am not sure if this city is overrated but all I know is that you cannot afford to end your new year without visiting the City of Love. The Eiffel tower is a site to behold, you can tell from the many Instagram posts from people who have been there. I have watched so many films that idolize Paris and that is why it is up there on my bucket list for the new year.
This is for the adrenaline junkies. This activity involves you jumping from a moving helicopter or a hot air balloon. You are usually secured by a long elastic cord around your ankles that allows you to dangle from the sky. If you have a phobia for heights then this isn’t your thing. However, if you enjoy activities like zip lining then you might want to try this too.
Bungee jumping can give you a great thrill and make you feel like you own the world. However, make sure that you consult your doctor before you go bungee jumping to ascertain that you are in the right physical state for such an activity. People who have heart problems and high blood pressure should not bungee jump.
There is nothing more exciting than being able to bond with dolphins under-water and watch them play and try to communicate with you. In some dolphinariums, you are even allowed to hold onto the dolphin’s fin and let it drag you. This is a fun activity for you if you enjoy the waters and want to try something new other than just swimming. You are required to wear safety gear including goggles to protect yourself from any kind of harm.
Have you ever imagined how your life would be if you were a totally different person? Like instead of your usual laid back self, you were an outgoing and social individual with friends on every corner of town. What if you changed your wardrobe and replaced those sweats with outfits that are flattering to your body.
Instead of your usual no makeup look, you became a makeup queen with all the latest trends in beauty, including custom lash extensions. Why don’t you try redefining yourself in the new year and see if the new you works more in your favor. This can be a fun and eye-opening process.
Learning to play a new instrument can help you enhance your verbal memory and strengthen your literary skills. It is also a very fun activity and you can master your favourite tunes. The next time your friends invite you for karaoke night, surprise them with your guitar playing skills. You can challenge yourself to learn the hardest instrument, the violin.
You have Paris on your bucket list but can you speak French? Most of us desire to travel the world but we can only speak our national languages. Make it a point to teach yourself at least one foreing language in the new year. If you wish to visit the great China wall then learn then enroll for Mandarin classes in 2022. Imagine getting lost in a new country and you cannot even ask for directions in their language.
If you are a lover of nature then you don’t want to miss the thrill that comes from being on an African Safari. You get to enjoy the scenery and spot different wild animals such as lions, tigres and elephants. To make this experience even more memorable for you, schedule your safari for the months of the wildebeest migration and watch over two million animals migrate across the Serengeti and Masai Mara.
A bucket list is not standard for everyone. Go with your heart and the things you enjoy doing, or you would enjoy. It is okay to challenge yourself and get outside your comfort zone every once in a while but do not stress yourself in the process. Don’t worry if you do not get to achieve some of the items on your bucket list, to be honest some of them cost so much money, especially those that involve travelling. If you manage to go on your safari, do not forget to carry your camera for picture memory.
