My Bucket List

A little while ago the "Bucket List" was floating around some blogs. This provoked me to think what was on my bucket list. I had always somewhat had one in my mind, I had just never put it down onto paper. So I have given it lots of thought - come up with a list of 55 things. It is by no means finished, I will probably add things, cross some off as completed. For right now, here is my bucket list.
