I’ve decided to start a Travel Bucket List because I keep getting flooded with pictures and articles of really cool places that I would like to go and really cool things that I’d like to do and I want to make sure I remember them all. Some of them are country-specific, some of them are task-specific, some of them are both. Some of them I’ve already done, just so I have the immediate pleasure of crossing them off the list.

I do what I want.

I plan on putting them in a separate tab for quick referencing, and crossing them off as I go. And adding things to it as I see fit.

Because I’m in charge here.

So. Here it goes.
