Bucket List

Some of these I've written directly from my imagination, others I've copy and pasted from elsewhere when I've stumbled across things I discovered I'd like to do. That's why the wording might sound slightly overly romantic in places. Other things I've added to this list that I took for granted, but are on other people's bucket list.
