Bucket List

My bucket list is without a doubt very ambitious, and it will continue to grow– but I do believe I will complete it. Although it will take a lifetime to complete – attempting to tick things off this list will make my life more exciting and always give me something to look forward too.

Before starting this blog my bucket list seemed so far out of reach (and some destinations still do), but with hard work and savings there is no reason why I can’t complete it.
