Bucket List

5b2cbbcc8913dee8bd614a7f154c2d40

I compiled my mini bucket list in June 2016, the weird thing is, I never did anything. I never tried to do anything, I just kept reading this list at least once a month and imagining myself doing these things. So I decided that the only way I will actually really start doing these is if I put them up on my site – it’s not here for decor purposes so now the pressure is on. This is a mini bucket list, meaning it consists of silly things that I have kinda always wanted to do. I don’t even know why I decided to call it a ‘bucket list’ because that’s a bit extreme but anyway, here it is…

We did it 🌈 We said we would go on a road trip and we really did. Our stops were all +/- 40 minutes apart and we navigated our way to each stop with so much ease and I overcame my fear of driving on the crazy, complicated, forever busy roads and highways of NYC. Not being familiar with the roads and the rain were the main obstacles we faced but we laughed our way through them. The only downside is that we didn’t have much of a chance to β€˜experience’ the places we visited, it was a matter of arriving, running out, admiring for 2 seconds, getting some snaps then sprinting back to the car. Our final destination was Coney Island, the funny thing is, we drove all the way there, found parking and didn’t even get out the car because by that time it was raining heavily so we ended up going shopping instead. @krissrvt_ next time we’re going bigger, in summer though πŸ˜…
