Bucket list 2 of 3 · Experiences

The only source of knowledge is experience – Albert Einstein

OK let’s go!

Part 2 of 3 is Experiences.. 

I imagine this section will change the most. As interests unfold and life slowly dissolves the changing landscape of desire and ambition will cruise the peaks and valleys. 

Not sure that made sense but at the time of writing, it did 🤔


Heading toward my Ultimate Bucket List, ‘experiences’ I find the most challenging to decide upon.

Do I keep it simple (visit the moon, drive a Ferrari etc.) or do I consider ‘experiences’ as they truly are?

Let’s see? 

Have you ever considered what ‘experiences’ you might have on your own bucket list?

Aren’t experiences THE most important of all things?
