The List

The Bucket List Blog

“It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.”

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, J.K. Rowling

At the time of writing this, I am nearing 28 years old and still do not know what I want to grow up to be but decided that it would be nice to document all the wonderful things that I see, do and achieve on my way there. So here we have it, the full list of 101 things that I want to do before I die. Who knows, I might even grow up along the way to! (Maybe)!
