The Bucketlist

So, as some of you guys know, I’ve been thinking about the concept of time because of some unresolved – soon to be sorted out back in the UK – health issues. And with my reconstruct of time, and trying to be open to everything I can be open to, to make the most of my time on earth. I have constructed a bucketlist. Most of which I want to tick off on our current ULTIMATE ROADTRIP.
