Bucket List

I have always loved travelling, exploring new places, and experiencing new things.

While I was at University, the phenomenon of “The Bucket List” took off. (For those who don’t know, a Bucket List is all things that you would like to do before you die, as seen in the Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman film called ”The Bucket List”.)

I slightly cheated and included things that I had already done when I constructed my Bucket List, things that I wanted to do before I die that would have been on the list without fail had I not already completed them.

Everything I have completed I crossed through.
