Bucket List

Everyone has places they’d like to see and things they’d like to do before they “kick the bucket.” This is about as close to a bucket list as I’ll get — I know it will never be complete because there will always be new things I want to try! By no means do I live by this list — it’s more of a collection of things that I’d like to do, but by and large I don’t plan trips around them (except the northern lights). Often, I find that I add more things to this list than I tick off after having been somewhere and realising all the things I missed out on!
