The Ultimate (and updated) Solo Travellers Bucket List – TRAVELLING THE Planet SOLO


The final time I sat down and really wrote down my bucket list, it was 2017! Two years later and I have really managed to tick off pretty a couple of a lot more of these products, and added even a lot more issues to the list, simply because of course I have!

So, right here is an updated bucket list with the issues I have completed at the best in the order of which I did them, and all the issues that I’m dying to do listed additional beneath.

I am also going to make this a permanent web page (proper subsequent to the ‘Where Subsequent?’ web page) so I will be positive to update it consistently and preserve you all in the loop.
