Hello my bucket list friends! I’m very excited about this blog post because I finally crossed off some more items and I can’t wait to tell you all about them! I just got back from a very fun vacation to San Diego. I had never been to San Diego before and I was very excited to go someplace new. My mom and I took an early flight to San Diego so that meant that we would have plenty of time for fun even on our first day. The view from our hotel room was beautiful and I could not wait to start exploring the amazing city that I could see from the window. That very first day we took a tour of the Midway, It was very exciting to explore the huge ship. We took an audio tour so we got to learn a lot about the ship as we explored it. I learned a bunch of interesting information about the Midway. I had really great time exploring the Midway .On day two I crossed off number 12 go to the San Diego zoo I will write more about that below. Day three I went to the safari park I had a great time looking at a bunch of different animals including tigers, birds and lions. I also got to ride the carousel in the safari park. It was a great day it was a hot day but a great day. On day four I went to Balboa Park and I have to say it really is an amazing place; Balboa Park has a ton of amazing museums. My mom and I visited that Natural history museum. I had a great time looking at all the displays but my favorite part was watching a 3D movie about whales it felt like you were swimming with them! I also got to ride the carousel in Balboa park .That night we went to dinner and saw the movie Nerve. It was a great day and there was more fun to come! On day 5 I crossed off number 25 go to LEGOLAND I will write more about that below. Day 6 was the last day before we went back home. We took a ferry to Coronado Island. I had a great time on the beach the water was nice not cold like the beaches I’m used to. We also took a free bus around town. That night I rode the Seaport Village carousel it was great way to end an amazing vacation. Now let me tell you about the items I crossed off my list .
#12 .Go to the San Diego zoo
I love animals and I had heard great things about the San Diego zoo so it is no surprise that this was an early item that I put on my list. I very excited to cross this list item off, we had got tickets to the backstage pass program so we got to get close to a lot of animals. It was so cool to be just a few inches away from a sloth! I also got to feed flamingoes and giraffe. The zoo was filled with lots of amazing animals. We got to take a bus tour and we also explored the zoo on foot. It was an amazing day! I loved seeing all the animals and getting up close to some of them and I got some great souvenirs including a polar bear stuffed animal. I’m so glad I put this item on my list! I hope I get to go back to the San Diego zoo sometime.
#25.go to Lego land
I enjoy amusement parks and I have been interested in going to Lego land for a while. I was excited to get to see some awesome Lego creations and I was not disappointed. There were amazing Lego creations all over the place! The coast cruise is a great ride to take a look at some great works of Lego art. I also got to go to the sea life aquarium in LEGOLAND I had a great time looking at all the sea animals. Keep in mind that LEGOLAND is geared towards young kids so thrill seekers will probably not enjoy the rides. I did get to ride the carousel that they have there .It was overall a good day and I’m glad I had this item on my list.
