Bucket List

Money Supermarket are currently holding a competition to win £1000 to put towards crossing something off your bucket list; all you have to do to enter is write about one budget and one extravagant thing you'd like to achieve before you "kick the bucket". If you'd like to take part, you can find full details here.
Northern Lights

My extravagant item would be seeing the Northern Lights; look at this photo! They're simply beautiful and something I'd absolutely love to experience. They can only be seen from the top of the Northern hemisphere; think northern Canada, Iceland and Scandinavia. I'd love to go to Iceland, but that's a pretty pricey place to visit, and once you've factored in flights, transfers, insurance, accommodation, food, spending money.. It's something that I doubt I'll be able to justify. Luckily, I have a friend who lives in Sweden so hopefully one day I'll visit her and be able to tie the two together.
Skydiving

My budget item is a skydive; maybe not the most budget of budget bucket list items (wow that's a mouthful) but comparatively, a bargain! There's a centre around an hour on the train from where I live, where you can get a two-day course including the jump for around £230; of course I'd have to take the boyfriend, so once we'd got there we'd probably be looking at about £500. I'd like to combine this with raising money for charity, so I'd ask people to sponsor me as well - two birds with one stone!
What items are on your bucket list? Is there anything you're desperate to achieve or complete?
I'm tagging Lucy, Rachael, and Bex to also do this post!
