Bucketlist for our travels

For ages I (Hannah) was against making a travel bucketlist as I thought this would be limiting and would add more stress to our travels.  However, since we have been travelling for a while now, it has been good to write down our ideas about where we would like to go and what we would like to do.  This list is by no means definitive and will probably change numerous times. The point of the bucketlist here is to encourage us to keep pushing our limits rather than to prevent us from learning/exploring.  We won’t necessarily always use this list to plan our future travels, instead it will be a reminder of activities or places we might like to go one day.  After all – travel never goes to plan!
