Bucket List

A Bucket List is a list of wishes: things you want to do before a certain age, before a significant moment or before death. I have had a list of things I have always wanted to do in my head, but never fully written out. (Probably because I’m afraid it will say one thing: everything) Although it is long and eventful, wishing it seems one step closer to doing it.

So here is the growing Travel Bucket List:
