Couple Shares Their 50 Before 50 Bucket List Aired October 03, 2018

There’s something so darn cool about crossing items off a bucket list, and that’s exactly what Baltimore couple Riquita and Mike have been up to recently.

How’d they get started? Well, Riquita says, when her mother passed away in 2013, she and Mike wanted to do something that her mom had always wanted to do. So, they visited one place she’d always wanted to see: Niagara Falls.

After that, they were hooked and decided to create a list of 50 things they wanted to do before Riquita turns 50 years old -- and they've already accomplished a handful!

So, what have they loved so far? Mike really enjoyed their hot air balloon ride and holding monkeys during a beach vacation, while Riquita’s favorite was a helicopter ride over their hometown. So fun!

And what are they looking forward to that's still on the list? Trips to Dubai and Mexico and a seriously popular fitness activity: yoga!

To help Riquita and Mike cross *this* item off, we enlisted the help of one of our favorite yogis: mom-of-four Hilaria Baldwin. She gave them a private class at Studio 26 here in New York City, before they joined us the studio. (Spoiler alert: Riquita was a natural!)

And that's not all we helped them check off! They've always wanted to zipline, so with the help of Dream Vacations and Royal Caribbean, we hooked the lovely couple up with the opportunity to travel by luxurious cruise ship to a private island in the Bahamas and try a 1600-foot long zipline!

Two more down, a few more to go!
