Bucket List Publications first began as a blog under the name Indulge: Travel, Adventure, & New Experience. As ideas and articles began to develop, readers and followers flourished, but I wanted to make a difference in the virtual world, portraying stories written by international writers and sharing the unique reality of our bucket list adventures and extreme lifestyles. That’s when Darren, my husband, and I worked diligently to produce Bucket List Publications, a new online magazine found at http://www.bucketlistpublications.com/!
Please follow along by entering your email address on the mainpage of Bucket List Publications. The blog and the magazine have separate “Follow Us” links. Don’t miss out on the great articles, contests, and giveaways on Bucket List Publications Online Magazine.
Bucket List Publications focuses on thriving aspects of adventure, travel, and the interesting dreams of other Bucket List Adventurers. As the name implies, Bucket List Publications is a unique perspective on bucket lists and adventures from around the globe. It portrays the beauty and limitless possibilities of bucket list seeker.
Traveling and extremes have encompassed my life for 30 years; from white-water rafting, skydiving, paragliding, bungee jumping, rock climbing, dog sledding, base jumping, kayaking, surfing, boogie boarding, rappelling, and caving, I’ve tried every “bucketlist” adventure I could imagine. My wedding day in Jamaica even included a little bit of rock climbing followed by a trapeze act in my gown. Now that I’m 8 months pregnant a new type of adventure awaits. I’ve been to 33 countries and I have no intentions of stopping there. Although I think I’m going to need a baby backpack for my new way of travel, lots of adventures are still just around the corner.
Following our dreams of living in southern California 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 in the accumulation of all of my wildest dreams come true. It is my heart and soul.
Co-creating Bucket List Publications has combined my love for technology with my passion for adventure & travel. While Lesley is the gifted writer, I’ve been by her side for the ride of a lifetime. In less than 2 years we’ve visited 7 countries, moved across the continent, took part in the wildest, extreme adventures, got married, & started a family.
My career as a software architect allows me to contribute to Bucket List Publications & be part of Lesley’s dream. With Bucket List Publications, I know Lesley can instill the same “I feel like dancing” attitude in her readers & contributors. Our journey has just begun!

“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 experience.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
