LT’s Bucket List

As the title suggests 😉
I wonder if I’ll do them.

I treat my website like a notebook, jotting down thoughts and ideas, keeping them all in one place.

It’s easy to refer back to as know where all my thoughts are, plus writing helps me clarify things and has the added benefit that I may entertain people along the way.

Cycle Around Great Britain
2,000 mile trip around this beautiful country, promoting tourism and adventure in my own country.
Adventure is right on our doorstep.

I’ve wanted to do this for years having had 3 friends do it.
It seems so simple and would be such a pleasure to see every part of the glorious coastline.

Row Around Great Britain, non-stop & unsupported
I’ve done it in a team of 4, I’d now like to do it solo.
I’m not exactly sure why. Perhaps because no-one else has ever done it.

As I write this I realise I’d like to do it because I have the urge to do a big solo adventure but I’m an extrovert. Rowing around Britain means I can still get phone signal and have people come out and visit me whilst I’m on my boat!

It’s also a jolly good challenge of skill and seamanship.

Row Across the Pacific Ocean
My mum is an orphan. She has spent the majority of her life wondering who her ‘blood’ family were and where they might live.

In 2018 she discovered she had a half sister and half brother who lived in Hawaii and San Fransisco, respectively. She found them via

There is a rowing route between these two places I’d love to do. I wanted to do it before my mum found our ‘new’ family but now I want to do it even more.

I’d love to do it as a team of 4 women.

Cycle or Hike The E4 Trail
I discovered this trail as I was researching if I could climb Mount Olympos in Cyprus. When I discovered the E4 Trail, I knew instantly I wanted to do it.

The E4 European long-distance path or E4 path is one of the European long-distance paths.
The entire route covers 10,450 kilometres.
Starting at its westernmost point in Portugal** it continues through Spain, France, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Greece to end in Cyprus. It also visits the Greek island of Crete.
I’d have to jump on a boat or a plane if you want to walk the entire route> But I’m wondering if I could use a kayak, SUP or another human-powered vessel to cross the ocean?

**another website suggests the trail starts in Gibraltar – I best get researching

Hike Around Cyprus

As I write I am currently on holiday in Cyprus. I’ve come away with my mum for Christmas and New Year. I’ve been running most mornings and the coastline and country is beautiful. It has so much to offer.

I’ve decided I want to run and/or hike around the whole country. It’s 400 miles the whole way around.

I like walking around islands- it gives me a chance to see what the country has to offer, plus I’m next to the sea.
