This is one expensive bucket list example to complete, in fact, flying first class is extremely rare as only a fraction of the population are able to afford it. Even then many of those passengers are flying on a paid or complimentary ticket. First class tickets are hundreds of perfect more expensive than coach but the difference really shows. The luxury and space is incomparable to the “other” seats and are in the front of the plane so that everyone can see what they are missing out on as they board. Business class is nice but still far from the ridiculousness of first class. Maybe one day…
A very unusual bucket list goal I know. But the art of lock picking doesn’t mean being a criminal, just another skill to be learned like changing a flat tire or even cooking. Being able to pick a lock could be very useful in life such as when you lose or forget your house keys. You can call a locksmith and pay a couple of hundred dollars or you can do it your self with some paper clips or buy some tools for just $11 (buy here), and no its not illegal to own or carry them (in the US). Imagine, a drunk friend who lost their keys, your grandmother who did the same or other situations. Lock picking is a good way to add a bit of tactical to your life.
What better bucket list idea to add to your bucket list than starting a bucket list? Seems obvious yet I bet you don’t actually have a list written somewhere of all the things you want to do before you die. Whether its on physical paper or digital file, start an actual list!

Bucket list for travel + shopping… Although this train runs only 47 kilometers from and to Bangkok, its one of the stops that makes it unique, really really unique. Its the Maeklong Railway Market aka “Umbrella Pulldown Market”. This market is so close to the tracks that the trains actually hover over the market stall items as it passes by. Each time a train does come through, the market owners have to pull back their awnings away from the cars… Only in Asia. Next stop? Grand Bazaar?
Car owner or not, everyone should change a flat tire once in their lifetime so add it to you bucket list. Learning this is one of those skills that you may never use but damn useful if you or someone you know happens to get a flat tire.

Since its likely the car in question has a spare tire, doing this yourself will save you a heap of money by not paying a professional to do it for you or having it towed.
This is one of those bucket list goals thats both easy to try and hard to achieve. Exercising once or twice a week is no problem for anyone but how about every single day?

Kissing while underwater is one hell of a romantic bucket list goal to do. Not to mention easy to achieve.

Learning how to cook is a damn good bucket list idea. Knowing how to pop popcorn, boil eggs or nuke instant noodles doesn’t mean you know how to cook. Maybe you can make a decent continental breakfast or a plate of spaghetti but there’s so much more options out there, it would be a shame to live without the ability to really cook. You have to be on the same level as a gourmet cook but good enough to enjoy restaurant quality fine meals for yourself and others without actually going to one.
Traveling to all the countries (vagabonding) is possible but extremely difficult, but stepping foot on all 6 continents is a bit more realistic.

There are some people out there who have never read a book cover to cover and needs “read a book” desperately on their bucket list.

If your a book reader, go to a library or buy a book and read one every month for a year as part of your bucket list.
A master’s degree isn’t what it used to be but its still a pretty cool and impressive title and accomplishment to have. A perfect academic’s bucket list goal.

Maybe you can also add “read the entire dictionary” to your bucket list while your at it.
A popular dream that none of us actually want to happen is to be deserted on a tropical island, but why not live on one as a bucket list? Maybe for a week or a few months in a paradise with a beach at your front door, warm days and nights, perfect atmosphere, no motorized vehicles and beauty all around in ultimate peace. Depending on the duration of the stay, you can work on the island or be lazy with zen. This sounds like the definition of vagabonding or living travel life to the fullest.
Just like making a snow angel, having a snowball fight is taken for granted for many of us but for those living in parts of the world where it simply can’t snow, it can be a dream.

Materials of weapons of minimal destruction falling from the sky to be weaponized in your own palms to be launched at your friends, now that’s awesome.
Know a second language? That’s pretty cool… Know sign language? That’s pretty awesome – especially if its something you don’t need to function in everyday life.

Once you master sign language, you can communicate with others in as much a complex and rich way as your spoken language.

Perhaps attending a comedy show or getting high in Amsterdam and chatting it up. No matter how you do it, every human should experience tears of laughter.
To the weak, culture shock can ruin or even end a holiday or world travel backpacking trip. But to the strong and worthy, culture shock can be an enlightening experiencing.

The sooner you make and bury a time capsule the better. Since the longer you wait to reopen it the better.
