If you are anything like me, you have a list …. you know …. a list of places you want to go to, things you want to do, experiences you want to embrace!

This is my list of wanderlust (in no particular order) and it just keeps growing. It started off when I was a young girl – as a list of places I wanted to go to – as I’ve grown so has my list, it now includes experiences, activities and general things I want to do before I die.

Check back often as I’ll be adding to the list as I think of more things that I need to do and as I cross items off my list I’ll be crossing them off here and adding the date.
