What’s a bucket list?

A bucket list is a list of things you want to do before you die. For some people, it’s the crazy, wild and exotic. For others, it could be learning how to dance, draw, or cook. Why not combine your bucket list with travelling? Learn how to cook on an epicurean cruise, and see a country you’ve always dreamed of visiting at the same time! Sky dive in western Europe, learn to draw in the Mediterranean next to the beautiful ancient architecture, or find your dancing feet in Spain! Unsure of where to start? Think of some places you’ve been wanting to visit, and things you’ve been wanting to try, and us at Lloyds can help you plan the perfect holiday that knocks two points off your bucket list in one go!
