When I was a high school freshman, I began my “Bucket List”. However, it wasn’t until six years later that I realized the personal importance of the items.
▢ Travel to another country
▢ Become fluent in a second language
▢ Jump out of a moving plane
▢ Visit my grandma’s hometown
Most importantly, I wanted to see the world, seek new adventures, and I longed to authentically experience new cultures. When I first stepped onto foreign soil in Quito, Ecuador, four years later, I was able to mark the first item off my list.
Whether it’s written down in a journal, memorized in our hearts, or remembered when chatting with a best friend over coffee, we all have a list of “must-dos”, “must-gos”, and must-sees”. So we created Bucket. With Bucket, we want to unite the dreamer with the doer, thus helping fellow travelers easily find the top destinations a city can offer. We seek to marry the list maker to the risk taker by providing access to exploration with a convenient, digital system that current tourism in developing cities doesn’t offer. But most importantly, we strive to unleash adventurers to make a few checks off their bucket list by providing savings that can make the unreachable – reachable.
So here’s to the explorers and tourists who never stop voyaging, you make us proud to share Bucket with the world.
