Summer Bucket Lists

I’ve had the song “Mad World” in my head for the last few days.  The last couple days have been a whirlwind of activities for just about everything.  It’s scary how things change and the things that set certain situations into motion.

I’ve been neglecting my blog, my workout routines, and just having a very blah attitude for the last six weeks.  It’s hard getting back into the groove of things after being in a down swing but here’s to trying.

Graduations are happening this week and next.  What better time to bring up summer bucket lists?

Ideas for Solo Travelers:

  • Explore your city as a Tourist.
  • Take a random road trip alone.
  • Get your passport.
  • Go camping and unplug.
  • Hike a mountain.
  • Go geocaching in your hometown.
  • Treat yourself to a spa day.
  • Go to a music festival and connect with people.
  • Skip rocks on a lake.
  • Try a fitness class at your local gym.

  • Take a camping trip.
  • Do a solo road trip.
  • Read a book I’ve never read before.

Most of these I got off of Pinterest.  If you want more ideas, Pinterest and Google can provide great ideas or even starting points.  For road trip ideas, Pinterest and the Day Zero Project have things to do in each state.  Check it out and have a great summer!
