  1. Isn’t it therapeutic to actually write a bucket list up? I’ve started writing one over on my blog and I’m forever adding to it. I’ve done some of the things on yours – Auschwitz is a must-do and Dubrovnik is absolutely beautiful. We share some in common too – seeing Lion King on stage being a standout!


      1. Fantastic! I’ve only been to Singapore and Malaysia in Asia, so can’t offer you any tips but they are definitely worth a visit in future. Can’t wait to read all about it!


  2. Avery interesting list,a few of the usual suspects and some very surprising one’s.Own a Ford Capri being the most unusual and surprising one of all…..Venice, Italy is a place of great beauty somewhere I would love to visit again as I think I would appreciate it more nw I am older and besides I missed a Bellini cocktail in Harry’s bar, cheers.
