Bucket List

Travel inspires me.
It inspires me to be curious, brave and to seek out the unknown and try new things.
But travel is also very exciting and as a result you can get overwhelmed, caught up in the moment, and find yourself forgetting about the things that you wanted to do whilst in a particular country.

So in attempt to hold myself accountable, I sat down one night and made a list (this list) of everything that I wanted to see/do in this little world we call home. Initially I wasn’t going to make it public, but then I lost my shopping list and realised that I can’t really be trusted with paper and so, as self preservation, I decided to put my list here.
