My Bucket List

I finally got my ass into gear to create my map; countries/states I want to visit, been to (and wouldn’t mind revisiting) and lived in (for more than 6 months at any one time).


I’ve also managed to cut down my “1000 things I want to do before I die” list to a reasonable and achievable list, this is a work in process. Items are not in any order and hopefully will be achievable in the foreseeable future if I can work out the whole rat race and $$$ issue.
