Stories and thoughts about my time as a Peace Corps volunteer in Moldova

Bucket List


I decided the other day that I really wanted to make myself a bucket list.  I have those things that I say I want to do before I die, but now I have the urge to right them down, and hopefully follow through with them.  Where did this idea come from you ask, well last week I went back to my training village for hram, it was their 100 year anniversary, they had dancing, music, food and different booths selling products.  They also had a hot air balloon being set up, and I realized that I really want to go on a hot air balloon before I die.  I tried to go on this one (one of the girls with me told me I should try and charm the guy since I am American, I did and it didn’t work), but it was also out of my price (250-300 euros for 4 hours).  I did get to watch them set it all up which was pretty cool.



So, what is on your bucket list?

Hi, I'm Mary. I am orignally from Spokane Wash., where I lived for 20 years of my life. I went to school in Bellingham Wash, at Western Washington University and graduated with a degree in Business Administration. In June 2011, I moved to Moldova for the Peace Corps. In the Peace Corps, I am an Agribusiness and Rural Development Volunteer, and live in a town called Riscani, which is about 3 hours northwest of the capital city. I love Moldova, but there are somedays where I really miss all my friends and family in the States! Email me if you have more questions!

  1. You should write it down. Mine’s been written down for years and when I do one of them (like skydiving) it makes the experience even more memorable.

    Maybe sometime when you’re back we can look into going on a hot air balloon ride…there’s a places in yakima valley that has a hot air balloon festival every year! 🙂

    miss you.
