About Me

Bucket List Publications portrays the beauty and limitless possibilities of this world. The quote, “The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences,” (Eleanor Roosevelt) describes my goals perfectly.

You can find more great articles, photos, and videos at our online magazine.


Lesley Carter

Traveling and adventure have encompassed my life; from white-water rafting, skydiving, paragliding, bungee jumping, rock climbing, biplane flying, dog sledding, base jumping, kayaking, surfing, boogie boarding, rappelling, and caving, I’ve tried every “bucketlist” item I could imagine. Rock climbing and a trapeze act were even part of my wedding day in Jamaica. I’ve been more than 75 countries and I envision 100 more.

Following my dreams of traveling and experiencing life to the fullest has taught me that the world is full of endless possibilities. With a Bachelor of Arts degree in Advanced English, a Bachelor of Education degree in Secondary Education, a Masters in Literacy, 8 years of teaching, and a vast imagination, I  decided to put my writing and editing skills to the test. Bucket List Publications is the accumulation of all of my wildest dreams come true.

  2. Hey Lesley…I came upon your blog today because you liked one of my posts 🙂 You have quite the AWESOME life lady! What a gift to be able to experience life to the fullest and get PAID for it!!! I plan on doing a lot more traveling in my life (I have yet to, even though I has a ridiculous hunger for it!) and I will definitely be looking to your blog for tips and places to eat! Love it 🙂


  3. Thanks for stopping by The Project, I hope you liked what you saw. More to come always. I’m digging the Africa section here, its been awhile since I’ve been around that part of the globe. — All the best.


  4. Thank you for liking 2 of my posts! You were the first and it is really exciting when you finally get a response. Your life sounds lovely… Best wishes on the new baby and don’t worry I have traveled many many times alone with my five children!! They are the best travel partners ever!!


  5. Thanks for liking my posts and I would love to become a contributor but do I have to re-write something I’ve already posted or is there a way I can just send something I’ve already done? Did that make any sense? LOL Just want to know if there is a way I can just link an already posted item from my blog??? Thanks


  6. Hi, thanks for liking my blog about my trip to Singapore.. When I visited your blog, I got so inspired to travel much more. What you’re doing is exactly what I’ve been dreaming of. If I may ask, when and how did you start travelling? I mean, how do you plan things, especially budget and time? 😀


  7. Hello and thanks for dropping by my space. I am now going to explore your pages and get to know you a bit more. I love your adventuring spirit and your will to keep going. I look forward to reading about your journey!


  8. Hi Lesley,
    Thank you, for liking my post at whatcherylsaid… of “It Starts At Home”, because it really does.
    I love your blog. You seem like a person that really enjoys life and live life to the fullest and that is AWESOME! You also, seem to be doing all the things you love, which only means you truly have found your purpose. Keep living!


  9. Oh wow nice blog you have! It’s really interesting to read about all the things you’ve done already! Keep up the good work.


  10. Lesley, you make me dizzy. My life is adventure enough for me without seeking out the heights as you do. Since, instinctively, without knowing much about you, I like you very much it gives me pleasure to see your name pop up in my ‘like’ line every so often. Communication is nothing without echo.

    Just make sure you won’t lose your footing next time you abseil.

    Will catch up with your blog’s ‘back catalogue’.

  13. I love idea of having bucket lists for every place you go. Really creative, and a great way to keep track of all the things you want to do and where!
