My Bucket List

Posted: 22nd June 2014 at 10:35 • Categories: Travel blog posts · Inspiration

We all have a list of things we want to do in our life, a list of places we would like to go to before we die, it's our bucket list. My list is about travelling but also about all the things I would like to achieve. My goal is to live life to the fullest, experiment as many things as possible, be amazed, learn a lot, test my limits and achieve most of my dreams. Here is my bucket list of what I’d like to see and do in my life.
