Jordan & Victoria’s Bucket Lists

Jordan & Victoria’s Bucket Lists

Bucketlists are a thing of beauty – everyone’s is slightly different, and everyone clings to them with the expectation that they will be completed before you, you know, kick the bucket. So when someone asks if you’ve been to X or if you’ve seen Y, a typical response is “not yet, but it’s on the list!”. Below are our bucketlists – they change as time passes, and we often will add more to them.

Victoria’s Bucket List

I’ve had a piece of paper in my wallet for over 10 years with my bucket list written on it. It’s been folded and unfolded so many times that it’s torn at every fold. It’s not just one piece, either – it’s 4 sheets with lists of places I want to see and experiences I want to have. I didn’t bring it with me on this trip (don’t ask me why) so below is what I could recall from memory.
