Watching the ‘Rethinking the bucket list’ TED talk we should all rethink our bucket list. I agree. Comes down to being more yourself every single day (appertently the no.1 think people wished they did when they’re on their deathbed).

Still, I have a bucket list. Inspired by meeting the lovely Amanda from dangerous-business.com and reading her awesome blog and bucket list, here is mine.

I need all the help I can get. Seriously.
This list is long enough, time is short enough. So if you can help me getting this bucket list done, please 🙂 And it’s better than asking for money anyway.
