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.

Travel Bucket List

Most of my “bucket list” items are just destinations. That’s because there’s just so many places I want to see within that destination. Other’s are adventures that just keep getting added to this ever-growing list.
