I love a good bucket list, in fact I think everyone should have one.  There’s nothing better than having a list of crazy ideas that you can dream and aspire to experience one day.
I created an adventure bucket list several years ago with nothing but a pen, a piece of paper and a dream.  Since then, I have been on a mission to create and live the life of my dreams, checking off those bucket list items, one crazy adventure at a time.
