Bucketlist

A “bucket list”, it is a list of all the goals you want to achieve, dreams you want to fulfill and experiences you want to have before you die. Obviously, it’s impossible to achieve all of your goals but making a bucket list helps you plan for a future full of purpose and enjoyment.

Below you can find my bucket list of ideas I collected in time, grouped by categories that I considered significant. The list is growing everyday as I discover new places and come up with challenging new ideas of how to keep life interesting. I hope it will provide some inspiration for you and please feel free to suggest new items to add to this list.
