The Bucket List – In The flesh

I was reviewing my Bucket List last night. I do this all too frequently. I recently re-organized the list and broke it down into areas of the world that I would like to travel to and then activities that I hope to take part in one day. Here it is as things stand today. It is ever evolving and I am constantly adding new finds to the list! Some entries are very detailed and others are simply one place. Do you have any recommendations for additions to my list? Add them in the comments! I would be thrilled to add more adventures 🙂
