Good afternoon guys and gals! Well, I have to say this is not how I expected to be spending the final quarter of 2020. It's utter madness isn't it?
But I'm not here to talk about the CV word. Well, not entirely. I was sat this morning thinking about the rest of this year and what it might bring and decided that instead of worrying about the horrors and the necessary cancellation of plans, I'd sit and think about my bucket list. About where I wanted to go when all of this was over. My future travel plans.
I did a bucket list waaaaaay back when (which you can find here) but over the years I've learnt a lot and some places I just don't want to go anymore. Some I've been lucky enough to visit since. And instead of a traditional list of destinations, I've created a subcategory for some with little things I want to do when I'm there. Some are just silly things but nonetheless I'd like to do them. Although in hindsight it would appear this blogging format doesn't seem to like my little subcategories, so they've all got their own numbers now haha.
So without further ado, here is my updated bucket list as of 2020.

This is my updated list so far. It's ever growing and ever changing, as you can imagine. I'm sure you're the same. If there's one thing this pandemic has taught me, it's not to take any experience for granted. Live in the moment each time you travel, take ALL of the photographs and videos, and be unapologetic about the places you want to see and the quirky things you want to do.
I may not have actually driven in America, but I'm never one to pass up a photo opportunity!
Talking about travel here may be the only thing that keeps us sane for the foreseeable so although I won't make any promises, I'm hoping to be posting on here as much as I can, and over on Instagram.
