My 2019 Bucket List 201 Ideas

Updated: Apr 25


I don’t usually do bucket lists because the last time I did years ago, I ended up disappointed that I didn’t complete it. This year I really want to give it another go with quite a large list some things totally doable, others not so much.

I think everyone should have a yearly bucket list full of things that they really want to achieve in a year even if you don’t manage them all it still gives you something to work towards. Some of the things on my list I have done before but want to do them again.
