Future explorations

Many bloggers have a ‘bucket list’ or a ‘to do’ list. I love this idea!

Lists are good as it helps me remember what I would like to accomplish. Having a plan also really motivates me to just do it. My brain memory has almost hit the max, so here are my lists for now.

I’ll try my best to visit these places and write about them, but dates might change depending on what else is happening. I’ve committed to many running challenges as part of my peak challenge this year so this might stop me from enjoying my exploring and walking.
