31 Days of Everyday Adventure: The Final Week

31 Days of Everyday Adventure

Welcome back to the final installment of 31 Days of Everyday Adventure!

So as you all know, every days in November I completed (or tried) to complete a challenge given to me by Shelly from The Goal List. They were small, easily done challenges designed to enhance my every day. I wasn’t always able to do them due to my current situation of travelling around Europe, but I have loved every minute of it! And I can’t wait to finish the challenges that I put off until we got back!

So with December 1 comes the closing of this challenge. While I’m sad it’s over, I’m also currently enjoying reflecting on everything and remembering how things went. Let’s take a look at the final few days, shall we?

31 Days of Everyday Adventure

Hello everyone! It’s time to talk 31 Days of Everyday Adventure!

Every day in November I’m completing a challenge given to me by Shelly from The Goal List. These challenges are small and unique tasks that are designed to enhance your every day! They’ve been helping me (and fellow participants) engage the world in a new way. I’ve been doing things (almost) every day that I wouldn’t have done on my own. That’s what is so cool about this challenge.

Where has the month of November gone?? I can’t believe it’s almost over, which means so is this challenge. Let’s look at what I did for week four!

31 Days of Everyday Adventure: Week One

31 Days of Everyday Adventure

When Shelly from The Goal List told me about her plans for 31 Days of Everyday Adventure, I immediately wanted to sign up. Not only a good friend of mine, Shelly also runs a bucket list blog that has given me plenty of inspiration with my own bucket list. Her idea was to create a challenge for her followers and friends to complete little bucket list items every day. The challenges aren’t anything too crazy, just really fun stuff that sometimes pushes you out of your comfort zone.

“Every day can’t be an amazing bucket list travel adventure, but we can choose to be a little adventurous every day.”

I love this! I love the idea of making every day a little adventurous. We might be travelling full time right now, which in and of itself is you know, a pretty darn big adventure. But there’s something special about taking a few moments of your day and doing something extraordinary.

The best part? You don’t need to hop on a plane and go somewhere to do any of it!

A McVagabond Bucket List

Do you have a bucket list? I seem to always have some sort of list going at any given time, sometimes even more than one (and don’t get me started on all of the other lists that are floating around our flat). I have a list of restaurants back home that I’m waiting to try. I have a dream list of places I want to see before I die. I have lists full of adventures, new cities to visit and one or two full of books and movies that I want to enjoy one day.

I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me to have a bucket list for Europe. I’m talking about a list full of experiences, not just merely places to check off. It’s easy to head to Google and find “The Top 10 Places You Must Visit in Germany Before You Die” or “25 FREE Things to Do in Vienna This Summer”. But I want to get as much out of this experience as possible to carry me through until we get our next trip planned and under way. These memories will also be a wonderful gift to take home; I can look at photos and remember this time in vivid detail.
