What's on your Bucket List?


  1. I am South African, so I've done the Kruger park safari quite a few times already. But when you do go, stay for a few days and take a few shorter trips in the mornings and evenings, instead of spending six hours in the car. It's enough to drive anybody nuts.

    Also, the devil's pool? I consider myself a bit of a nut, but not even I'm that crazy to risk it there! As for Thailand, in 2013, I'm sure you'll love it! Best place ever!

  2. Love this Christie! Alot of mine overlap and you also gave me some new ideas!
