Reviews of bucket-list-worthy things to do all over the world

About Jen

Hi, I'm Jen. At some point in my 20's, I realized that life is short and I had put most of my dreams on hold for far too long. I wanted to see the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Big Ben in London, wild monkeys in Costa Rica, and so much more. And so I made a bucket list and I got to work accomplishing the things on my list.

I started this website to inspire other people to conquer their bucket lists. I hope you find information and inspiration that helps you plan your own bucket-list adventure.

P.S. One of my big dreams came true thanks in part to this website. I enjoyed writing about my adventures so much that I started writing screenplays and novels. I now have nine published books! Some of my novels are based on my experiences: visiting Japan (Lost in Tokyo), living in Southern California (Lost in Los Angeles), and working with wild and exotic animals (Wild Animal School). I've also written a series set in a dystopian future society (Above the Sky series) that was inspired by my love of The Hunger Games (by Suzanne Collins) and Divergent (by Veronica Roth). My newest book is a thriller with shocking twists and turns (The Unknown) that was loosely inspired by my love of the Netflix series Stranger Things. Check out all of my novels at!
