I think at some point, everyone has probably thought about making a bucket list. Whether it’s ‘Things to Do Before I Die’ or ‘Countries & Cities I Have to Visit’, I could bet a lot of money that there are many ambitious people out there, and I am included in that long list. Of course my main goal is to travel most of the planet that I can, but I also have another type of travel bucket list. 

This one though, has no set of rules and regulations and is definitely only feasible if money was not an object. Some of the items on the list are achievable, and infact some of them are things that I plan to do in the next year, if I can. However, yes I will admit that the other dreamy situations (a lot of interaction with animals is included) will probably be left to the professional globetrotters. A girl can dream.

I used to make Summer Bucket lists with my friends in school, which contained the likes of ‘go skinny dipping’, ‘stay up all night’ and ‘get the train to Waterford for the day’. This isn’t one of those.
