Bucket List

What’s on your list?

First thing I have to say is that writing a bucket list is hard work. So I started with the easy things, what I wanted out of my personal life and what I planned to achieve. The hardest part of this list were the activities, including everything that I wanted to experience or learn.

I never imagined that there would be so many of them.
