Inspiration for Myself and You!
I absolutely love lists. I buy super cute notebooks for all of my different lists, and collate notes on a huge range of topics. And of course, as a travel blogger... I have a bucket list too! Here's my bucket list, organised by country/continent - I hope it gives you some inspiration for your own!
