Bucket List

What is a travel blog without a bucket list? We love bucket lists! Here we have gathered everything we want to do, no matter how big or small. Of course, every time we travel the list keeps getting bigger and bigger! If you are looking for inspiration have a look, maybe you will learn something new, and you might even add it to your own bucket list! Or leave us a comment with anything you think that’s still missing from our list.

The list is divided into several categories, so go ahead and check the one you like best. If you are curious about some of the items we have ticked off you can always click on them and read about our experience. We haven’t written blog posts for all of them, but we are on it!
