Everyone should have a bucket list.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s small things (like buying a proper tent) or epic challenges (like climbing Everest), it’s good to have dreams that you want to achieve before you die.

We’ve put together our very own bucket list of things we want to complete before we’re 30 years old – just as a starting point for the next seventy years. We could go on and on.
