Bucket List

This is a list of things that I would like to do at some stage in my life. Over time this list will hopefully grow and items will get crossed off as they are bagged. Some may even have links to specific posts containing a bit more detail.

Anyway lets get down to the list and try and split the items out into sections. Some may deserve to be in more than one category but this is only meant to break them up a bit, nothing’s hard and fast.
