The List

I love lists.

So we followed the herd and made a list; essentially it is a bucket list, but I don’t like that name so it is just The List. This is The First List, when we cross it all off, we’ll write another!

So, in no particular order, here is The List.

    Great list but it has one notable omission – means of support???? You’ve already done No. 3 – Asia, Europe, Australia – if you count living in Australia as visiting. Enjoy!

    • I don’t count 3 days in KL as visiting Asia, but yes, I have already set foot on three continents. Kyle won’t till May though! As for means of support, that’s dull bit going on in the background, spiced up by all of the fun things in The List. And it’s a bit hard to have career goals when you don’t know where that career is even going to start!

        If you are really clever/fortunate your career will not be dull and will encapsulate many of the things on the list – or at least facilitate them.

    The top of my list is to visit Broome!!! Not very adventurous. But I want to go back to England cos Bath is gorgeous. I am doing pretty well with mastering the art of drinking….
