Round Robin Bucket List

Inlay Taj Mahal

Inlay Taj Mahal

I’ve now visited the Taj Mahal twice. The first time was over thirty years ago – how can this have happened? – and it was far more relaxed than the recent trip in early 2015. Notwithstanding the increase in security measures and the huge press of people, it is one of the most amazing structures of the modern world. So, it’s in my bucket.

 The earlier trip was made in the hope we would be starting a family soon and the holiday was to be our ‘big’ adventure before disappearing into the nappies and night-feeds. We chose India because I wanted to visit Sri Lanka. Yes, we did go there after and it was everything I’d hoped for. The niggling wish to travel so far south started when I watched a programme about a boy and his elephant as a child. I thought he was the most beautiful human I’d ever seen and when I discovered he was probably a Tamil and the Tamils still existed, then that was on the list.
Travel has always been a huge part of my life. I love discovering the reality of the pictures, hearing the voices, smelling the smells and sitting for hours waiting for trains lost in the fog.
You’re right. that last was a lie. I hate waiting for lost trains. It is however, part of the journey.

Just as waiting for the breakthrough is part of being a writer. So, what’s on my writing bucket-list?
Well, I really don’t want to be the next JK or EL, but I would like to sell a couple of thousand. Links are below and so is the list of fellow round robin authors who’re also sharing their heart’s desire. Follow me to Beverley Bateman http://beverleybateman.blogspot.ca/ and then maybe test out one or more of the others. We love to have you visit and really appreciate a wee postcard to say you’ve been. Tell us what’s on your own bucket list. All good wishes, Anne
