101 Things to Do Before You Die

I started a bucket list 2 years ago, inspired by the Kaileigh’s Bucket List story. Thought this is a beautiful way to remind ourselves that there are many things in life to experience besides the daily toil. This morning, I came across an interesting article http://www.wanderingearl.com/why-i-made-a-list-of-memorable-life-experiences-this-morning/ which once again reminds me the beauty of life experiences. However, I am running out of ideas for my bucketlist so thought would like to solicit for new ideas. Do you have a bucket list / life / travel experiences to share ? I would love to hear from you !
