Ever since the movie came out in 2007 people everywhere have been putting together lists of what they want to do before they die. Early into our relationship we started talking about our list never putting anything formal together. I had a journal beside my bed and about six months into our relationship we started to casually write down ideas we loved, places we wanted to visit and things that really sounded cool to us.

Unfortunately during the downsizing process of turning to a minimalist life, the journal got lost. With most of the ideas still fresh in our heads we created a formal list while sitting in the airport about to depart on our honeymoon.

When we got married, we vowed to one another to never live a normal, boring life. We promised each other a life of thrill seeking adventure and with what I am sure will be an ever growing bucket list we know just how to make it happen.

    I wanna do rock climbing too!
    There is a rock climbing gym by the yoga studio, imma get a punch card for the fall to try it out.
    Why Glasgow? Its such a random place to want to visit?

    Also, I appreciate how most of the items involve water – my kinda couple.

      Awesome! I will work on it too and we can go climbing together. I hear there are some amazing sites near Kamloops and on Vancouver Island to go!

      We literally base our happiness on how close we are to a water source. We just love it! Myles family is originally from Scotland. He was really close to his grandfather and he grew up hearing stories of the city. So, just another beautiful destination we must explore!
