The Bucket List

The inspiration to pen down (or type out) this list came from the places that I have been to, the people that I have met and the books/blogs that I have read.  I immediately noticed a change in how I view the world around me when I started this list – there are so many things to do and places to see. I was 25 (in 2013) when I started this – my Bucket List. Trust me, this is not the final draft. 😉
