My Bucket List

Amazing Places in the World I'd Love to Visit

1. London Eye

One of the things I'd love to do is to ride the London Eye, a gigantic ferris wheel. It's located in London, England, my most favorite city in the world, and it is right besides the River Thames. The Thames river was created as a result of physical weathering. Running water is still continuing to erode out the river.

One of the places I'd most want to go to is Hollywood!! Or even better, be part of it! Though that may be a little far-fetched. All those movies and sets and actors and actresses, and shops and especially Hollywood Boulevard and the Hollywood Walk of Fame! And don't forget the gigantic Hollywood sign on top of the mountain! Speaking of which, the mountain has, and still is undergoing slow physical weathering, slow due to all the vegetation and roads and stuff up there, and wind erosion is also happening. Hollywood is in Los Angeles, California. What I wouldn't give to be part of Hollywood as an actress, maybe even have a star, though both will probably never happen in my lifetime. One can dream, though...

3. The Cliffs of Moher

The Cliffs of Moher is a cliff located in Clare, Ireland. Harry Potter and Dumbledore stood there for a scene in the Half-Blood Prince movie. It was formed by physical weathering and wind and water erosion.

4. Water-skiing, surfing, and scuba diving in the Maldives

Three of the six sports I would most love to do are all offered at the Maldives, a stunning group of islands surrounding by crystal clear water, right off the coast of India- surfing, scuba diving, and water skiing!! These sports aren't exactly done in only a specific place, though. These islands aren't part of one city, though- you can do these 'sports' almost anywhere, in any city on the island, and the islands are their own country. The Maldives Islands were, and still are undergoing physical weathering by the amazingly clear and bright blue waves of the Indian Ocean. Erosion by water is also happening each and everyday on these islands- slowly but surely!

5. Skydiving and Bungee Jumping in Pattaya, Thailand

Pattaya, Thailand is one of the best places to go skydiving in the world. It is a small city on the coast of Thailand. Skydiving and bungee jumping are two more of the "sports" I most want to try. This city's beaches are still being physically weathered and eroded through mostly water, but also some wind erosion, now resulting in that most of the beaches are now covered with fine white sand, which are also being weathered and eroded.

6. White Water Rafting on the Magpie River

The Magpie River is a river in Algoma District, in northeastern Ontario, Canada that empties into Michipicoten Bay on Lake Superior near the town of Wawa. It is a huge river, perfect for white water rafting, number six of the six sports I would most like to try. The river is in existence thanks to physical weather and wind and water erosion, which is still eroding and weathering out the river to this day.

The Sport of White Water Rafting

White water rafting is a 'sport' done on an inflatable raft, with paddles or oars, as many people try to navigate rivers or other bodies of water, and varying degrees of roughness. These bodies of water are also sometimes called "white waters", thus came the name "white water rafting." This sport is merely done for entertainment only. Lengths of the raft can be from around 4.9 feet to 20 feet. There are six different 'classes' of white water, and to go on a class six rapid is considered by some to be a suicide venture, since almost everyone who does one ends up with serious injury or death.

7. Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle is a huge and ancient castle located in Edinburgh, Scotland. It resides on a green hill, and the hill is still being physically weathered and eroded by wind and gravity, though more slowly than most hills, since it is green with vegetation, but it is still being eroded nonetheless. J.K. Rowling also lives in Edinburgh, so a visit to the Edinburgh Castle could also maybe result in meeting J.K. Rowling- one of the top five things on my actual bucket list, though not first...
