16/31 There’s a hole in my bucket, dear Liza

16. What’s at the top of you’re bucket list?

I have a vague idea of the kind of things that are on my bucket list but I’ve never really sat down to write it and put everything in an order of things I’d want to do first. But, with that said, the things that have always remained a constant on my list have been…

  • Travelling to Borneo to see wild Orangutans
  • Heading to Uganda/Rwanda to track wild gorillas
  • Entering Tutankhamun’s tomb and retracing the steps of my relative, Howard Carter
  • Meeting all my favourite queens at RuPaul’s DragCon in L.A

#3: What’s the 11th item on your bucket list?

I don’t actually have a physical, written down bucket list (although maybe it should be a 2014 resolution?)… it’s more along the lines of several mental post-it notes of what I want to achieve in my lifetime! My main one though is to travel to Uganda and Borneo to be face-to-face with Mountain Gorillas and Orangutans, since for as long as I can remember, I’ve had an extreme fascination with primates. I have visited Monkey World in Dorset, on several occasions (as they are a rescue centre, not a zoo!) and to show my support I have adopted Bart the chimp, donated unwanted sheets and towels as well as purchasing a paving brick for the ‘Walk of Thanks’ (which can be found near the mischievous Capuchin Monkeys!). I also got the chance to meet a hero of mine in December last year, as mentioned in previous blog posts, in assistanting Dr Jane Goodall on stage at her Roots & Shoots Awards Ceremony – I must admit, I was completely awestruck! 

… I’ll keep you updated if I do ever make a physical bucket list!
