Our Seasonal Based Family Bucket List 2018


I think a bucket list is such a great idea to start the year with, especially for a family where you can all throw ideas into the mix. There are so many activities and trips we’ve done last year that we’d like to do this year, but also lots of new things we’d like to try out and goals we’d like to achieve. I’m listing them here mainly for my own reference so that I can check back on our progress, but I thought it might be interesting to share them too.


Wish us luck!
