The Bucket List

The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.

This is the working list of things I will achieve by the time I turn 40. Life is to short to live a boring lifestyle. I choose to explore the world and want to make friends all over the globe. If you have a suggestion of something to add to the list, how to improve the task or can help/want to go with me to cross something off the list- please let me know. Things will be crossed off as they are completed.
