My bucket list

A bucket list is for experiences you’d like to have and things you’d like to do before you…kick…the…bucket.

My experiences are mostly low-key and locally focused because 1. I lead a quiet life. 2. I’m on a tight budget. 3. I don’t currently fly.

(By airplane, I mean. I’ve never flown under my own steam, of course – but that would definitely be something for my bucket list!)
