Bucketlist for Mumbai

The idea of a bucket-list for Mumbai has been with me for a long time. You can call it a ‘to-do’ list or my resolutions for this year. Call it what you may, I need to get down to doing. Seriously.

Mumbai has a lot of things to see and experience. Despite living here for more than 2 years, I haven’t managed to even cover half the city. Finally, with a few friends we participated in an all-Mumbai treasure hunt. We did it for the heck of it – we were last initially. Surprise of surprises, we won second place after a nail biting finish. We managed to squeeze in a real bad ass race on the Bandra-Worli Sea link.

As if this experience was not enough, I came across Lesley Carter’s Bucket List. Thanks to all this, here is my modest bucket list for this year.

  1. Trek through Sanjay Gandhi National Park
  2. White water rafting
  3. Visit a hill station during the monsoons
  4. An all-night party
  5. Ride a bike or car through the city at night – responsibly
  6. Take the MTDC’s tourism bus Neelambari, a red open-top double-decker
  7. Climb Mazagaon Hill and visit Joseph Baptista Garden
  8. Learn a new programming language

  11. Learn a foreign language
  12. Travel to new places
  13. Attend a really good international rock concert
