We all have bucket lists.

Travel writer and TV host Robin Esrock has decided to write a book about his bucket list. In his home country.

The Great Canadian Bucket List recommends the best activities and destinations across Canada. It includes eight Manitoba experiences.

Esrock made his own bucket list in 2005, packed his backpack and went around the world.

When he was asked to write a guide book about Canada, he said no because guide books go out of date so quickly.

Instead, he wrote The Great Canadian Bucket List. He also created a website that he updates regularly.

Here's what made it from Manitoba into the book:

  • Polar bears.
  • Snake dens.
  • Ballet in the Park.
  • Grand Beach.
  • Winnipeg Folk Festival.
  • Paddling the Bloodvein River in northern Manitoba.
  • Hermetic Code tour.
  • Winnipeg's culture.
