Ticking Boxes

There comes a point in everyone's life where it's time to make a change, and move on.

Most of us recognise this need, and some of us actually effect the change required.

That time came for me in 2000, and one of the first things I did (after finding a job, and a place to live) was to create a list of all the things I wanted to do before I "kicked the bucket". So it was my "bucket list". I must have been on the right track as well because a film of that name came out a couple of years ago. However, I decided that I had to find a new name for my list!

In essence, I am simply ticking boxes - I've decided the things that are important in my life for me to complete, and so I'm crossing them off.

Most of my boxes are about travel: places I've dreamed all my life of visiting. But some of them are about things I want to have a go at.

This website is designed to be stories about the boxes I've ticked.

The links under the continents on the left will take you to the travel blog I created for those trips.

The blue dots on the map below are of some of the places I've already visited.
