In 55 years I’ve visited the Grand Canyon and Eiffel Tower, got my motorcycle license, paid off my mortgage, and learned to fear less and live more as a solo woman.

In November 2016 I landed in Sydney Australia with a 4-month tourist’s visa. My friend Jared whisked me off to Bondi Beach where we sipped Cooper’s Ales and watched surfers at a cafe-bar called The Bucket List. We philosophized about life and bucket lists and l told him that—with my arrival in Australia—I’d now completed my life’s bucket list.

What next?

“Why don’t you start a new bucket list?” suggested Jared.

“I’m not a ‘list’ kind of traveller,” I pondered, “But I do value little moments. They’re the kernel of my travel stories and blogs. They’re the best part.”

“So do a blog of little moments,” said Jared. “Collect them in a ‘bucket.’”

I stayed in South Australia for four months exploring vineyards, olive groves, surf beaches and Aboriginal culture.  I even bought a a motorcycle and toured between Adelaide and Melbourne.
