I’ve always want to have a physical, tangible bucket list to cross things off on, but have never actually gotten around to making one. My husband and I have our ‘top ten places in the world to visit’ lists memorized, but I’m wanting something fun, semi-easy to accomplish, and that’s documentable on this blog. Cue the New Zealand Bucket List! A few of these things we’ve already accomplished during our road-trip (as you’ll notice they are crossed out), but I still wanted to note them just because they were things I wanted to do before we moved here.
NEW ZEALAND BUCKET LIST (2014-2015)

I’d love suggestions of places and events that arent’t on my NZ list, please leave info in the comments! The little ** means it would be an added bonus but not heart-breaker if I don’t get to it. Yes, I give myself bonuses.
SIDE NOTE ONE // I have to say how thrilled and genuinely surprised I am as Kiwi readers are popping up all over the place introducing themselves to me! Thank you so much for your support and suggestions. I read every single comment, and I appreciate them!
SIDE NOTE TWO // Interested in moving to WordPress.org? I have a special opportunity I’m offering right now for the first few clients that email me! Wondering why you should switch? Read this post I wrote over on my design blog.
