I’ve always been a planner and list-maker. Even when I’m feeling incredibly unorganized, sitting down and planning things out, making a list, always makes me feel a little bit more in control. Sometimes these are just short, one-off plans and lists, other times I like to have a better feel for the months ahead – which is where my agenda comes in. I tend not to make too many specific plans for the future, but I like to have some goals.

 While I have many goals for myself, this travel bucket list is one of my most general. It’s forever getting longer and full of great stuff I just have to do before I die. I’ve left out the ones that are simply “Visit (City Name)” as there are so many cities I want to visit, and that would make this list too long.
