The Urban Wanderer bucket list of activities and fun stuff!
I love reading the to-do and bucket lists on the many blogs that I read and I also thought that it would be a useful place to keep note of the things and places that I want to do. So here we are setting about starting my own to-do list to share with you. Of course, if you have anything that you think I should add, please let me know and I’ll pop it on.
I have to admit that some are pretty random, but that’s just the kind of girl I am! Always up for a challenge and to see something a little bit different or offbeat!
I’m always up for a good adventure and will, of course, blog about it once it is done too.
