My Bucket List

A Bucket List is a List of things that you one day hope to achieve before you kick the proverbial bucket.

There is no time limit. It has no start date and the end date of course is unknown. Unlike the 101 List, there is no need to make the Goals measurable or even attainable. There is no restriction on how many items you have and  there are no rules. You can add, take away and check off things whenever you want. It is always evolving…

It is a list of dreams and possibilities, of maybes, what if’s and hope. Mine mainly consists of places I want to visit.

Warning The List is Very Long
