  1. I love reading bucket lists! Good luck with your list and I’m glad that you have some crossed off already🙂

    Wow, some of those are super ambitious lifetime adventures.

    Try a national dish from every country would be a cool blog to read. It could be combination of travel, restaurants and cooking at home. There are about 200 countries in the world so if you tried 1 dish a week it would take you almost 4 years!

    • Thank you😀 Yeah some are probably not quite as feasible as others, but I thought I might as well go all out and give myself something to aim for🙂
