Bucket List

I think I probably started my first bucket list at around 16yrs old, and I even managed to find the original hand written version in an old Filofax of mine which showed nearly all were something to do with travel, no surprise their eh! Here it is laid out for you all to see with some additions, omissions and edits since my teens. I’ve decided to split my list into three sections; activities & ambitions to complete, countries and cities I’m dying to visit and hotels I dream of staying in. As you’ll notice a few have been ticked off already but there are many more to go and no doubt many more to be added as time goes on 🙂
