Bucket List

This list is a compilation of activities and places that we’ve seen (not in person), heard or read about that we wanted to keep a record of. Some of the items aren’t the epic type of things you would find on a typical bucket list though, so perhaps it would be better described as a hybrid “to do”/bucket list (not the working around the house kind of “to do” list). For any items that we have already crossed off, we have linked to the blog post of that place or activity.
