Do you have a Bucket List?

I have been wanting to get one together for ages but as yet haven't got around to it.  

Perhaps it is because I can't think of lots of things to go on to it or it's just because I achieve things and it isn't until afterwards I realise that "well there's a bucket list moment" without it actually being written down on paper to then cross off.  

Would you care to share some of your ideas to give me a kick start?

ETA:   This is probably one to mark off as I have been wanting to write this post for a while now.

I spent a lot of my 20s doing a lot of crazy stuff and travelling around that I really do feel like I have done most of what I want to do. I really don't have a yearning or a need or a whatever to do something in particular

There's very little I want to do before I kick the bucket, the main one is travel Europe, Rome especially. I also want to go to America purely for the Smithsonian, I am a big history buff so am dying to see it.
Egypt for the pyramids also but don't know if I want it enough to ever actually go

Maybe it is because I am not very adventurous or cannot stick to anything but I try and live my life but doing what I want when I want (well withing reason) and as my passions are food, books, wine/beer/whiskey and travel for me these have been very easy so just do things as I go.
