Bucket List Adventures

by Annette Smith

Annette Smith shares 10 incredible journeys to experience before you die, while encouraging the readers to make their own bucket list. If we make a list of things we wish to do, we will more likely do it, and in turn create our own reality instead of letting life run it’s course. Annette is the owner of a Michelin-recommended Italian restaurant near Sonoma, CA and now runs a second career as a Travel Writer, documenting on her popular blog, bucketlistjourney.net — “from walking among wildebeests in Africa to climbing an active volcano in Guatemala to swimming in a lake in Palau surrounded by thousands of jellyfish. In Bucket List Adventures , she takes you along for the ride, and shows you how to live your adventures, too.

Bucket List Adventures is not only a practical travel book – sharing detailed information on lodging, helpful resources, etc. – but also an inspiration for people to step out of their comfort zones. In short, Annette helps readers to create their own Bucket List, and then she gives them the tools and encouragement they need to live that list. An extensive appendix includes information about 50 additional places to consider for your future adventures.”
