Bucket List

Most people think about forming bucket lists, you may not pen it down but somewhere in the back of your head there are things you really want to do, see or experience.

Lists have always inspired me to get things done (I’m organized that way). So I created a bucket list for myself – this will forever be work in progress, new things will get added, things completed will be ticked off. Being the visual person that I am, I first created my bucket list on Pinterest. Since my blog is far more public, here is the list, attempting to feed that wanderlust, in no particular order
