This list will show Maria’s ultimate bucketlist.

The Ultimate Bucketlist

Her ultimate bucketlist is a list that she would like to share to her readers to show that anyone can attain and reach their goals no matter what the cost may and or how late you may accomplish it. What matters is you accomplished it and you aced it!

    Interesting Bucket List! You inspired me to make my own too! I think it’s a great reminder that we are on track with what we aspire to be in the future. 🙂

      Thank you for dropping by this page. Never thought someone would actually visit this bucket list of mine. Hope to see yours soon too! 🙂

    This is such a complete and varied bucket list, love all of it. Definitely feeling inspired to do my own, as I do have a few lists of things I want to do, and places I want to visit, but not an ultimate bucket list 🙂 Yet.

    I LOVE this list. I’m a firm believer that the best way to accomplish your goals is to write them down so you have a constant reminder, but you’ve taken it the extra mile by putting it on your blog which is very courageous on your part. Judging from the progress you’ve made so far…I’m sure you’ll be completing all the contents of your bucket list before you know it.

    I like how you’ve broken up your bucket list into categories. Great idea you have there! Hope you don’t mind if I do the same! I have so many things I want to do and it’s inspiring to see others fulfill their lists making it possible for me to do my own!

      Hola Louisa! Sure you can. Actually, my OC side was unleashed when I created that list. I actually wanted to see my progress on my end. Enjoy! Hope I’d see it soon!

    What an extensive bucket list! Everything here is interesting! Surely you’ll be able to tick everything on this list. You are a determined and goal oriented person and i know you can do it just like how you do your letterings 🙂

    this is the real ultimate list! i was thinking of some really long list under travel or life in general but you made it even more specific. i think it is a good thing you have each under a category. i hope you get to tick all of them! and maybe i need to start doing the same!

    What a cool list. Which country would you want to visit outside of Asia? It is also good to see you have knocked of a lot of items on the bucket list.
