20 Wild Wishes You Should Have On Your Bucket List

Look, we all know that we’ll have to die someday, somehow, and someway. It’s unfortunate, it sucks, but hey, it’s all a part of life.

While we can’t avoid the inevitable end we all face, we do still have control of how we live the rest of our lives the best way we can. Why not go all out and live our lives to the fullest?

Many people come up with a bucket list of different goals, dreams and interesting things they’d like to achieve and live out before they pass away. Things that are anything from simple, lifelong quests to thrilling, daring and extreme activities for the experience of a lifetime.r


Everybody has their own things they desire to do with their lives, but if you’re looking for some hair-raising excitement, here’s 20 of the wildest wishes that you should have on your bucket list!

1. Sky Diving

One of the wildest things you can do is sky dive from thousands of feet above ground. Many of us are afraid of heights, but this is a great fear-facing activity that should make its way onto your bucket list!


2. Scuba Diving

From diving out of the clouds to diving off of a boat, scuba diving is another wild wish you should have on your bucket list. Explore the surface of the ocean like never before and use a waterproof camera to capture memorable photos, or just see the sights for yourself!

3. Race In A Real Race Car

Everybody has a wish deep down to race their cars, and although nobody chooses to accept your challenge at the stop light, you can still fulfill your racing dreams by going to any select NASCAR speedways and really put the pedal to the metal!

4. Hike A Mountain

Many things on your bucket list should involve adventuring this “small” world we live in, and an exciting challenge you should take on before your time comes is hiking to the top of a mountain. Just imagine the view up there!


5. Travel Internationally

It may not be that wild of a wish, but if there’s anything that is mandatory to have on your bucket list, it’s traveling internationally. See with your own eyes the ancient pyramids of Egypt, the holy palaces of Rome, statues of the Gods in Greece and iconic tourist attractions like the Eiffel Tower in France, or choose any of the nearly two hundred other countries to explore!

6. Swim With The Sharks

The vast majority of us probably had a great fear of being eaten by a shark when we were younger, but before you die, you should try swimming with them at least one time, just to be able to brag to everybody about how brave you are!


7. Fly In A Hot Air Balloon

Take sight seeing to all new heights and try flying in a hot air balloon someday. Hot air balloons are amazing displays of art and offer breath taking views of the world you’ll never forget!

8. Bungee Jump

Challenge your fear of heights some more by adding bungee jumping to your bucket list. Much like sky diving, you’ll be so surprised at just how much you enjoy the thrill of free falling!

If you’ve ever been curious to see what the very top or bottom of the Earth looks like, make an expedition to the north and/or south pole a wish on your bucket list!


And when you get back, please tell me how cool Santa’s house is.

12. Travel Through A Desert

There might not be a whole lot to see, and there will be a whole lot of heat, but camel-backing across miles of desert terrain would be a pretty cool thing to say you did once, wouldn’t it? Add this to your bucket list, too!
