The idea of this thread to write down the things you want to do one day before you die - that is to say, what is on your ´bucket list´ and why those things pique your interest. I´d also like it if people described some of the interesting experiences they have had in their lives, either unexpectedly or while doing things they had wanted to do for a long time. F.i. perhaps someone has already done something that was on the bucket list of someone else and share that experience
I´ll start. In april I went to Morocco with a whole group of fellow students and while we were there, one of the things we did was ride camels towards a Berber camp in the desert. It was not something I ever had the express intent on doing but riding on those camels with 60 fellow students on our way to a site in the desert under an immaculate starry sky... it is something that I will never forget. The sense of camaraderie and wonder was strong among us.
Something that is on my bucket list is the camino, the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. While I am not really religious and certainly not catholic, the idea of going on a pilgrimage on foot to clear my head and overthink my life is appealing to me. The fact that Northern Spain is full with beautiful old cities helps as well.
Please, come and share your stories.
