October 26, 2016: Do you ever feel that your life is heading nowhere and it has no goal? Many people create a bucket list that is full of crazy, adventurous activities. The main reason behind creating a bucket list is to live every moment to the fullest. Here are the few things that you can try:

  1. Defy gravity

Go for skydiving. It is the perfect combination of excitement and serenity. Once the parachute opens, the heart rate will get steady, just take a moment and enjoy the view.


  1. Northern lights:

Of all the natural phenomenon in the world, nothing compares to the beauty of the northern lights. The lights are like dancing colors of the sky. The Algonquian Indians of Canada believed that the fire was built by the Great Spirit.

  1. Verify for yourself that the Earth is round:

Set sail in one direction and do not stop until you’re home. Journey around the North of the Arctic Circle around the summer would be perfect. You can spend a night watching the sun circle above the horizon.

  1. Climb your own Mount Everest:

It is believed that Gods stay in the mountains. When Petrarch climbed 6000 feet and saw the view from the top of Mount Ventaux, he said, “What I had read of Athos and Olympus seemed less incredible as I myself witnessed the same things”. The reward would be unbelievable: to stand on the highest bit and get the perfect view. Maybe you would finally understand why the mountains are calling.

  1. Go on a road trip:

It is said that the journey is a destination; a road trip is an adventure. Do not make a plan. Avoid the question,” Are we there yet?” It’s all about the fun, the talk and the landscape. Enjoy the moment.

  1. Conquer a fear:

Lucas Jonkman said,” Fight your fears and you’ll be in a battle forever. Face your fear and you’ll be forever”. Face your fear that has been putting limits on your full potential and let your breakthrough inspire other people.

  1. Donate something

Donate something that will bring change in someone’s life. Be it your hair, your blood or any other thing. Helping others will give you a feeling of satisfaction which is unbeatable.

  1. Bury a time capsule

Bury few of your favorite things in places where a stranger can dig it up. Leave a note with it telling him how these much things matter to you.

  1. Take someone you love to a romantic place

The place should not be a local 5 star restaurant. Take your special someone to Paris or Santorini. Any romantic place would work where you can be close to nature and to your special someone.

  1. African Safari

African Safari is an affordable travel choice. Watching wild animals roaming freely and falling asleep would be a treat for the eyes. There would be many magnificent natural sights. You can meet people from all around the world in Africa.

In all the wedding excitement, it's easy to overlook the impact a wedding has on the environment. While everyone is making their big fat Indian wedding dreams come true, they are also adding their carbon footprint and undue energy consumption. Modern couples are now looking for ways to have a wedding with a sustainably conscious mindset. It's become about incorporating less waste, locally sourced and seasonal food, natural materials over the use of plastic. Mindful wedding planning and decor includes the use of recycled paper and goods along with eco-friendly venue needs. Check out this quick guide to achieve a sustainably conscious wedding without compromising on luxury:

Choose locally sourced material to uplift artisans
Sustainable can be luxurious too, incorporate some native flavour into the decor and theme. With the use of locally sourced materials and local artisans coming into play, the wedding instantly becomes sustainable. Include the work of local vendors ensure minimal packaging requirements, thus saving on unnecessary plastic and lamination. It also decreases the need for transporting elements from other cities and hence lowers the carbon footprint. For instance, at one of our weddings, we made use of sand art for a setup in Jodhpur. This helped promote local work while also being environmentally friendly with zero wastage of other materials. In another instance from Rajasthan, the traditional glass-blown technique was used to build decor items while giving a cultural touch to the destination wedding.
