Bucket List – Done!

The term “bucket list” is used a lot, previously for me it was the “must do” list usually a range of activities or experiences I wanted to do when determining a travel destination.

Sometimes these activities seemed impossible, too costly, too dangerous even but really that is really just a brunch of excuses, if you want something there is almost always a way.  There is still must To Do.

We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible.
