Frequently Asked Questions

What is this site about?

This site is a bucketlist of things, experiences, locations to visit or other achievements in life, that I have been trying to accomplish over the last many years. There is no fancy context to the things, and it can be considered more of a checkbox or todo list. Hopefully it can give others some inspiration, but ultimately, it is only intended for myself.

How do you define 'done'?

There are a few entries on the list, marked as incomplete, which I have clearly and by all definitions: already done. But if my memory of the experience is not strong enough, for me to clearly recall the moment and the experience it brought, then I do not consider it done. Think of things you did when you were only a toddler, would that really constitute an experience you still have today?

When is an experience considered done?

There are things which are quantitively; how long would you need to be a vegetarian for it to count? How much of something do you need to eat, for it to be considered tasted? Originally, I had very specific amounts listed for these things, but honestly, it's a subjective thing. If you think being a vegetarian for a week is enough for you to understand the feeling, then that is the exact length you need. As far as what 'my numbers' are: They aren't written, but they are well defined to me.

How did this list get started?

This list was originally written by me and my all-time best friend, about 10 - 15 years ago, long before the term 'bucketlist' was household. In fact, I don't even think we heard of a bucketlist before. It started as a list written on a piece of paper, and over time, through three or four website designs, evolved to whatever it is now.

Why doesn't this site have more features?

This site was never built for anyone else to use, it sounds weird, I mean why would you make a website and not expect others to view it? Well, bucketlists are a personal thing, and you are not competing against anyone. For that reason, the website was for almost ten years just a gallery of images, with no context, and that still worked out just fine. There are no plans to expand this site with much functionality beyond what is already here, unless you can provide me with a really good reason to.

Why don't you have this thing on your list?

The main reason is probably: I didn't think of it - and you should send me an e-mail with the things you think I am missing. But at the same time, there are many things that I very purposefully left out, for many different reasons: It might be unrealistic, I might not be interested and feel strongly, that I never will be, or it might be too hard to articulate into a well defined goal. But the fact is, my list changes very often, with new things added, and old things renamed, removed or redefined.

Why haven't you done this thing yet?

There are many goals on the list, which can easily by completed, no matter where you are geographically, I understand that. In reality, you could burn through a list like this pretty fast, if you desired. But at the same time, I have hopefully a whole life to complete them. Previously I didn't actively pursuit any of the things on the list, but now days I plan for things ones or twice a month, and try to get through as many as I can. The further into the list I get, the harder it becomes though. Thankfully, I have good friends who are always up for doing things!
