Bucket List

So, a few weeks ago I was happily pinning things on Pinterest, when I found Bonjour Blue. Samantha had written a great post – 101 in 1001, she had some brilliant, personal ideas of what to do in 1001 days and was crossing them off. You know how it is… you start looking at one blog and then you jump to other blogs who have created similar things… anyway it got me googling and starting to write a list .
I’m not really the sort of person that likes to set such big challenges for myself – and some things, like visiting the Maldives, would be on the list, but wouldn’t actually happen in that period of time, so I’ve started making my own bucket list that I can cross off on Mellifluous
So, what I’ve done is basically split the list in two – one list to work on personal things, and another list for travel. I thought I’d make a list on the blog of what I want to do, where I want to go etc. and they you can follow me as I cross them off… wish me luck!
