My Bucket List (100 Things I Want To Do Before I Die)

My Bucket List (100 Things I Want To Do Before I Die)

By now, you’re probably already bored of my travel blog posts. I do apologize, but I’m just the kind of person who makes a series out of everything. I like slicing the events of my life into chewable days so they’re not all one time, big time. Anyway, let me do something different today. I want to share with you my very own Bucket List. Actually, now, I wrote it down clearly saying it’s the “List of 100 things I want to do before I die”, but that’s about the same thing, right? I don’t have the 100 items on my list yet. I’m working on them, though. 🙂

I know some of you have a lot of travel goals this year (and throughout your entire life), but my Bucket List is a bit different from that. I don’t have a lot of travel goals on my list. And about my goals that involve going to another country, we’ll just see. As of the moment, I don’t even have a passport, so. HAHA.

Oh, by the way, this list comes in no particular order. I also don’t have a deadline for each one. I also don’t force things to happen. If I get to do them all, then awesome. If not, then maybe I’m just not meant to do them. 🙂
