Bucket List

"Interlaken, Switzerland"
Find the Courage – it’s the things we don’t do that we regret the most

Some time ago now I began my gap year, since then new ideas, adventures and experiences have a way of popping up.

As a reminder and to force myself out of my comfort zone for the right reasons I’ve composed a Bucket List to remind me that the World has so much to offer, and that we should make the most of it every single day.

    I enjoyed Your list. It is superb. I recommend a cruise on Nile. In Finland You can see Northern Lights.

    I love it that You love Spanish. I never learnt it officially, but I have a blog in English, Spanish and French. Well, You said also: “45.Learn to roll my “r’s like the Spanish”.

    The fact is that it is rolled in French and it is easy to learn.

    Happy blogging and travel.

      Thank you so much! I have so many things that I want to do. Yes, I saw – I looked at your blog and loved that you had it in 3 languages, I’ve been thinking about doing an occasional post in Spanish, but I don’t think my French is quite up to a post yet!

      You say it’s easy to learn, but I’m still finding it quite difficult, thanks for stopping by 🙂
