My Bucket List

I must admit, when I decided to travel it was a bit of an eye-opener. It kind of dawned on me that I have no idea what I want to do or see, all I knew was that I wanted to get out and see the world. In order to give my travels a sense of purpose, I threw together a bucket list off the top of my head and inspired by countless things; too many to mention.

  1. You should add La Tomatina tomato fight in Spain to your list! I went in 2010 and it was INCREDIBLE. It may be years before you can eat a tomato again, but it’s worth it. Good luck on your travels!!!

      • OH!!! I went to a “football” game when I was in London. My Dad is from Northolt in London and is a staunch Spurs supporter. I thought Kiwi’s were big on Rugby but soccer is almost like a religion over there.

  2. #31- Go to Glastonbury? Really. Been there done that. it wasn’t that great…although I wasn’t there for the music festival. If I were I’m sure I would have enjoyed it better.
