Adventure List

In lieu of a “travel bucket list,” which sounds like something you have to do because you have limited time (on your trip? in life?), I have a collection of adventures I’d like to take and experiences I’d like to have. This is a non-exhaustive, ever-evolving list. Because really, if I’m being honest, I want to go everywhere and do ALL THE THINGS.
