Win $100 to tick something off your bucket list!

Win $100 to tick something off your bucket list!

One of the books that has sat proudly on our coffee table for over a year is Lonely Planet’s 1000 Ultimate Experiences. It’s an inspiring and entertaining read for travelers and for those who are formulating a bucket list and the book was one of the factors that convinced us to take our round-the-world journey.

Some of the activities from Amy’s 25 Before 25 list are featured in this book, like Venice being listed as one of the top 10 places to steal a kiss.

From the comments on Amy’s post, we found that it inspired quite a few of you to start creating your own lists and we want to help you get started! With the generous help of Life Insurance Finder and their 24 Funniest Ways to Die Infographic, we’re giving one lucky reader $100 cash to help you achieve one of your life’s dreams.

How to Enter

To enter, all you need to do is:

  1. Sign up for the Don’t Ever Look Back newsletter. Be sure to confirm your email address!
  2. Answer this question in the comments at the bottom of the page.
    Which bucket list item would you put the $100 prize money towards?

Entries close at 11:59PM EDT on Monday July 11. We’ll then randomly draw and announce the winner on here on Tuesday July 12. Good luck!

    Cool idea for a contest. It would go towards my Cedar Point goal – ride all the roller coasters at Cedar Point and Kings Island.

      This would actually go towards ticking 2 items off my bucket list. I would use it towards my trip to Niagra Falls. I hear the falls are amazing and I am so excited to see them!! & it would tick off Ontario/Toronto on my quest to seeing all the US & Canadian staes/provinces before I turn 30 & also Niagra falls off my bucket list.

      2 birds 1 stone… 1 amazingly beautiful place.

      Ps. Mike love your Cedar point goal!!

    This would help “elevate” me in a Hot Air Balloon Ride in Winter Park, Colorado!
    I sure need a lift in my life!

    Great contest. There’s a lot of things I want to see and do, but the one that keeps coming back to me is New Orleans. I’ve wanted to go to New Orleans for years to explore the culture, history, the music, the food and the night life. But I haven’t had a chance to go. I would definitely use the prize toward a trip to New Orleans.

    I’ve got a pretty big ticket item of spending New Years in every time zone. I’ve only crossed off 3 so far and would love to get another out of the way!

    It would go toward visiting Kilauea and Moana Loa at the Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park!

    Great contest! I would use the prize toward my goal of reaching every continent!

  7. Posted July 5, 2011 at 9:15 pm | Permalink

    Wow, another contest!

    For me, it will go to bungee jumping from the Macau Tower. This will definitely help pay for the relatively expensive ride! Perhaps your sponsor, Life Insurance finder, will also be helpful to cover any potential accidents. :P

    What an awesome contest idea! I am currently working on a HUGE bucket list goal which is to teach in a foreign country. An additional $100 in my pocket would help with the cost quite a bit.

    An additional $100 would help towards a trip to Antarctica, where i especially want to see a Minke Whale! Also it’d help me to reach my goal of visiting all 7 continents before the age of 25. I’m currently 18 and have Australia and Antarctica to explore to manage this.

    This sounds like a ‘Journey List’ dream come true! And now that i’m in South America, the next thing on my list is to volunteer in an orphanage! $100 would sure go a long way! Cheers Kieron and Amy!!

    I would like to make a most iconic train ride in India from Siliguri to Darjeeling. I would love to climb the 7,000 feet in elevation on a train.

  12. Posted July 7, 2011 at 12:38 am | Permalink

    This is fantastic. I would use it towards heading north to Hudson Bay to see the Northern Lights and perhaps some polar bears!

    I would use the 100 dollars toward my trip to Israel.

    I would use this $100 toward a helicoper ride when I go to Maui !!!

    I would put that money towards my PADI! I DREAM to be able to dive and although I went to places all about diving, I never had the cash to do it!! I’m going back to Thailand soon and that would be amazing!

    Which bucket list item would you put the $100 prize money towards?

    Going to Hawaii

    I would use it towards going to Istanbul. :)

  18. Posted July 8, 2011 at 8:40 pm | Permalink

    I’d put it towards flights to Fiji, where I’ve dreamed of going since I was about 10 years old!

  19. Posted July 8, 2011 at 9:19 pm | Permalink

    I’m planning to backpack in Europe come 2012. If I win the $100, it would go into my plane fare! *cross fingers*

    I would use the $100 toward my dream of riding the Trans-Siberian Railway all the way across Russia from Vladivostok to Moscow!

    Hi Amy and Kieron,

    I would use that $100 in jumpstarting my international travel. I haven’t been in any country outside mine since I can remember (except for that Japan trip when I was 4, of which I could barely remember). I have a plane ticket to Hongkong (outbound) this August with no return ticket yet and I am a bit reluctant to pursue the trip because of budget constraints.

    Next month we’re headed to Bali. Would love to use it there!

    I’d use this for a backpack for travelling to Thailand. Yup, gonna do a gap year at 54 years old!! :) Better late than never!

    Great competition and I am enjoying reading everyone’s entries!
    One of the items on my bucket list is to attend a Seattle Storm game. I’m going soon to a game, but if I win the $100 I could afford a court-side ticket and that would be a dream come true!

    We’d use the money towards venturing into the underwater world! We’d get a camera casing that would enable us to photograph deep underwater (something we’ve not been able to do before)!

  27. Posted July 10, 2011 at 4:15 pm | Permalink

    We’d put it towards sky diving – something Poi has always wanted to do!!

  28. Posted July 10, 2011 at 5:16 pm | Permalink

    Great contest idea guys!

    I’d use the $100 towards going shark cage diving at Port Elliot, South Australia!

  29. Posted July 10, 2011 at 11:59 pm | Permalink

    We’d put it towards a bike camping trip into the Cambodian countryside!

  30. Posted July 11, 2011 at 12:16 am | Permalink

    I think I would spend it on Easter Island and get myself a touristy statue of the figure heads.

  31. Posted July 11, 2011 at 6:36 am | Permalink

    I want to get Angie certified scuba diving, but she is absolutely terrified.. so I would put the money towards a class where she could learn in a controlled environment and not some crappy pool at a dive shop in Thailand with a Swedish instructor that barely speaks English.

  32. Posted July 12, 2011 at 4:25 am | Permalink

    Yay contests :D haha. All signed up!

    This would help me go on a crazy Icelandic adventure, when I’m in Reykjavik next month! Think–glacier hiking, cave trekking, white water rafting–insanity :p

  33. Posted July 12, 2011 at 7:08 am | Permalink

    So paying my bills next month doesn’t count as a bucket list goal, does it?
