My Bucket List

Is there a better way to start a blog, than with writing a bucket list? Well, I don’t think so!

my bucket list

question „So what is a bucket list?“, I hear you ask. It’s a list of things you’ll definitely want to do before you kick the bucket (a.k.a. die). And as we all know, this day is going to come sooner or later. So better start working off that list, before it’s too late! Also, it’s a list for self-improvement, and broadening your horizon should be your everyday goal.

To help me remember and achieve those things, I want to share my list with you. I had one lingering around in my mind for way too long, now let’s set it down in black and white! Apparently, this is just a starting point. I’m going to extend and adapt this list, whenever I feel like there’s something missing. And of course, – best case scenario – whenever I can tick off an item!
