Many people mentally compile a bucket list of things they really want to do, but author, coach and adventurer Paula Reid, 51, has already completed one longer than most people could write.
“Growing up, I’d always mark down what I did on my calendar,” she says. “And at the end of the year I’d think – ‘that was a boring year’ or ‘that was packed’. It made me realise that life is a gift. We choose the lives we lead.” Already working within the travel industry, Paula began to actively draw up what she calls a Live Life To The Full List, and has since completed more than 100 adventures. These have ranged from the big – skiing to the South Pole – to smaller wishes such as attending Glastonbury festival and having some of her poetry published.
