The Bucketlist

Most people can probably say they have a bucketlist, a list of things to see and do in their lifetime. One day I was in Urban Outfitters with my friends and came across a book, My Bucket List. I obviously flicked through it to have a look and found pages of quotes and space to write down 101 things I wanted to do with the time I had. Well needless to say I bought it and when I got home I started to fill it in.


Unsurprisingly the majority of my entries relate to travelling and exploring. So far I have filled out 88 of the 101 pages, leaving some space to add any new ideas (feel free to make some suggestions). For me 2017 was about starting to tackle this list, I got married in 2016 and although I am saving to buy a house want to spend any spare income on travel, and this year is going to be no different. I prefer to collect memories rather than material items.
