Bucket list

My ambitions are never-ending as new ideas are constantly coming to me from all sources. From books, films and talks. But especially from other people, which is why I put together this list of 100+ awesome adventure ideas.

Although it is constantly changing, I like to keep a personal bucket list of things I want to do. It’s a great source to look back on from time to time when planning the next adventure. It’s also a great way to keep track of all the things I have achieved so far.
