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

14/31 One way ticket to anywhere please

14. If you won the lottery…

Easy. I’d travel.

I’d probably start with the majority of America so that I could see all of my favourite Drag Queens perform and visit the set of The Big Bang Theory in L.A. before heading to places such as Borneo, Uganda, Rwanda, Egypt, Thailand… literally the list of places I want to see in my life time is never ending.

I guess I should start buying lottery tickets right…

On the road

#273: If you could pause real life and spend some time living with a family anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Easy… Borneo or Rwanda to live with a family of Orang-utans or Gorillas. It didn’t specify that it had to be a human family! I’ve always dreamed of seeing these fascinating primates in the wild, so this would be ideal.

The natural world

#181: Describe your first memorable experience exploring and spending time in nature. Were you in awe? Or were you not impressed? Would you rather spend time in the forest or the city?

 

I’ve been thinking about this for at least 20 minutes and, quite sadly, have to admit that I can’t think of a single time where I’ve explored/spent a substantial amount of time (not even half an hour!) just taking in nature. I do remember when I was younger spending time lying on the grass, watching the butterflies flitting around our huge buddleia tree in the garden but I’m guessing that doesn’t count. Although I do remember how enchanting it was to watch them – sounds silly but they do have a mysterious way of moving and just being. 

 

That said, I would love nothing more to go to somewhere like Borneo (Orangutans), Rwanda (Gorillas), Uganda (Chimpanzees), or even on an African Safari (Giraffes, Elephants, Lions etc) where I could simply sit and watch the wild animals live their lives. I can imagine that is an absolutely incredible thing to witness!
