Tourist attractions are at the top of Leeds people’s “bucket list” of things they would like to do in their lifetime, according to a new survey.
But with a typical list costing nearly £136,000 to fulfil, it would take people 80 years to complete at the current rate of money saving, the survey by GE Capital Direct 1, part of the GE Capital UK finance group, found.
Top of the bucket list – an American expression to denote things that people wish to do before they die or ‘kick the bucket’ – was seeing the Northern Lights.
This was followed by visiting the Grand Canyon in the United States, seeing Niagara Falls in Canada and just broadly going on a round-the-world trip.
The main reason among 25-34-year-olds for drawing up such a list was fear of missing out. However two in five of those asked said that thinking about their aspirations kept them motivated in work and in life generally.
