plane wing with snowy mountain peaks in new zealand

As my wanderlust itch is never satisfied, I’ve created this Wanderlist to curate a collection of ideas to inspire my future travel plans and bucket list goals around the world. I’ve included those which I’m lucky enough to have already crossed off, and the list is by no means complete as I imagine I’ll continue to add more to my Wanderlist when inspirations hits, and when I’m reminded of something amazing I’ve already done! Suggestions are most certainly welcome – sharing is caring!

    Wow! You’re ambitious. I hope you get to do it all. Giant’s causeway huh? That’s where an Irish giant fought a Scottish giant. At least in lore. I would’ve loved to have seen that. Think of all the back and forth insults.
