Debbe Patterson, who lives in Parksville, British Columbia, said she has traveled “quite a bit” over the years.

“Two years ago I was diagnosed with a serious illness and last January I had to leave work because of it,” Patterson said in an email. “I will probably not be able to travel much longer so I wanted to try to complete my husband’s and my bucketlist,” Patterson said, acknowledging the “list has a hole in it” because it keeps growing.

She started filming the videos in January 2013 in Belize.

She said she decided to share the video with friends and posted it on YouTube.

“Everywhere I went was great, but Ecuador and Peru was great because they just really got into it with me and had fun too,” Patterson said.

Patterson dances in several locations, including: Split, Croatia; New Orleans; Prague, Czech Republic, Krakow, Poland; Kings Canyon, Calif.; Budapest, Hungary; Transylvania, Romania; Mostar, Herzegovina; Purmamacara, Argentina; Venice, Italy; Canon Beach, Oregon; Belize; Tuscany, Italy; Bryce Canyon, Utah; the Amazon Rainforest and several other places.

“I am just trying to live every day to the fullest and have fun every day,” Patterson said.
