1. Learn to flamenco dance

This is kind of similar to another one of my bucket list items to learn how to hula dance. I’m pretty awful at dancing, I have no grace what so ever. But I think dancing is really fun and I love the idea that a dance can mean so much to  a culture. Flamenco dancing I think looks especially beautiful and fun to learn. Learning to dance in the traditional style is just another way to immerse yourself in the culture, and what is more fun then dancing with new friends?

2. Snorkel with whale sharks

As you can probably already see I love everything that has to do with water. Water skiing, sailing, snorkeling, SCUBA diving, you name it and I want to do it. Whale sharks seem like one of the most majestic animals in the entire ocean. They are so large, however they are really quite gentle. People assume that because they have the word shark in their name that they are scary and vicious, but that is very untrue. To be so close to such a large whale would be mind blowing, and so much fun. I can’t imagine anything more magnificent.

3. Swing on the edge of the world

I am sure if you are like me, as a child on of your favorite things was swinging. I used to love the feeling, like you were flying through the air and nothing was holding you too the ground. Well, who said you couldn’t kick up the excitement level of swinging a few notches. In Ecuador there is a swing that is situated on the edge of the cliff. When you swing, you literally swing out over the abyss and open air, how terrifying, yet exhilarating. As a kid I always loved to close my eyes and pretend I was actually miles above the ground way up in the sky, but on this swing you don’t have to pretend to be high above the ground. I don’t think I’ll be testing my bravery to see from how high I can jump though, haha.

  1. Do you know what parkour is? You should look it up, and try it if you haven’t (most people haven’t haha). But the way you describe all of this stuff makes me think you’d enjoy it.

    That swing blows my mind. I come from a family with three siblings, and we have what we call a “swing tree” in our backyard. Currently, it has 4 swings on it. We have always adored swinging and pushing each other to new heights. With this Ecuadorian swing, though, I’m not sure I could be so brave. I would feel like I was going to fall off, even with all of my swing practice from home. I love the pictures you use.

  3. My friend is actually in Ecuador right now, and she told me she went on the swing and it was absolutely thrilling. I don’t think i would be brae enough to go on that though especially since I am extremely scared of heights. I didn’t even know snorkeling with whale sharks was a thing. That seems so cool. and that would definitely go on my bucket list!!
