My Bucket List

For every school year, I typically create a short bucket list of what I want to accomplish and/or experience before the end of my school year. Coming to a new school, in a new country, for a whole year, I figured that a bucket list was in order. As opposed to just experiencing and accomplishing certain goals and aspirations, I also decided that I would expand my bucket list to accommodate specific celebrations that can only be experienced within certain times of the year in certain places across the world. Since I’m already in Europe, why not experience significant events that originated or are only offered in specific locations across the globe. This expansion (that I would less likely to do in Canada) includes accomplishes and experiences from going to Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany, to kissing the blarney stone in Ireland.
