Bucket List

So everyone has a list of things they want to do in life, and after seeing a few more sites recently with their lists published, I thought I’d publish my work in progress list to keep myself accountable. Things will be added to the list and crossed off over time, so I never expect this list to be finished or completed. I’ve included things that I’ve already done in the past, as they include some obvious things that should be on the list, like scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef.

  1. I have some of your things on my wish list too. I’d love to go to Machu Picchu, go in a hot air balloon and go for a helicopter ride too. I’ve done a few that are still on your list as well – I’ve been to Rome and seen the Colosseum, seen Pompeii three times, visited Petra, and seen an active volcano (Vesuvius), if you decide to go to Pompeii then let me know and I can give you loads of advice on where to stay; it’s pretty cheap too and you can see the active volcano at the same time!

    Petra, the Colosseum and Pompeii were incredible so I hope you get to see them.
