7 Comments on “The Bucket List

  1. What an extensive bucket list and a very interesting one! Just FYI, there are only three territories in Canada and ten provinces, but I do hope you get to visit them all. Buen Camino.

  2. Even though it’s only no. 77, come see me any time you want! It’ll cover a couple of other numbers as well 😉

  3. Well done you! I am a 56 year old grandmother, and am also working through my bucket list because I am alive, well and I can. I have ticked off a lot of the same goals as you and make a point of adding new ones so I won’t get to the end 🙂 Enjoy the Camino – I did mine in April 2013 (walked 400km). Chris, New Zealand
