Travel & Lifestyle Bucket List For 2020 + My 2019 Review

Last year I came up with a bucketlist of personal and career-related things I wanted to accomplish as an alternative to new year’s resolutions. Whether it was passing my driving test, losing a certain amount of weight or doing a driving experience, it helped shape 2019 into the successful and fulfilling year it was.

There were some that I managed to achieve, others I unfortunately couldn’t tick off whether it was due to the lack of time available, money or not enough opportunities over the course of the year.

Although I’ve been thinking in ways to top 2019 and enrich my life with more memorable experiences. I thought why not come up with another travel and lifestyle bucketlist for 2020 with new and achieved goals included.

I’ll also do a little overview of this year’s bucketlist for those who hadnt seen my bucketlist. As well reveal to you lot my travel and lifestyle bucketlist for 2020:

Personally, I prefer doing bucketlists to new years resolutions. By mentioning the exact experiences and things makes goals more focused and specific. It means you have plan of action. Rather than setting up more generalised, vague goals you set yourself.

What have you got on your bucketlist for 2020? Have you given yourself any ravelling and lifestyle goals for the new year? Feel free to share them in the comments section below.

    I love the idea of doing a bucket list instead of goals. And it looks like you were able to cross a lot off your 2019 bucket list. For my bucket list, there are a few nearby places I want to explore as well as visit my family in the summer. Thanks for sharing your bucket list, and good luck with everything.

    You did awesome in 2019. I wish you good luck for your 2020 goals!

    Love your bucketlist for 2020! I’d recommend the Time Out cinema on a boat on the Thames if you do the outdoor film in London!

      Thank you for the recommendation Lex, the idea of watching a film whilst on a boat is pretty cool! Definitely gonna give it a bit more thought

    Love the idea of a bucket list instead of resolutions! Can’t wait to hear what this year brings you! Good luck with ticking off your new list! I’ve been to Winter Wonderland a few years running. I would recommend not to go on weekend if avoided!!!! Also the train stations around are either entrance or exit! Likewise Luna Cinema or Rooftop Cinema are great for outdoor film experiences!

      Thanks Emma! I’ll definitely try and take up on some of those recommendations. Would you say in terms of avoiding crowds better to go Winter Wonderland after Christmas then?

    I love a good bucket list! Best of luck with everything on your list for 2020! 😁
