BUCKETLIST

Hello peeps,

this is our Bucketlist of a 150+ things that we think one must have done in life and also the things we were lucky to have already experienced. We are mainly looking for crazy unexpected stories, that our grandchildren shall be delighted to hear from us. After all, who wants to be a boring granddad/grandma 😉 So here is to the crazy daring people who see life as a potion one should down at ones. For those who want the whole cake instead of a piece and for those who agree that here is no other option than to just be a doer. Dare, breathe, try and maybe fail and repeat. We very much hope for you to do be inspired to do the same and make the most of this splendid life.
