I have a long bucket list with plenty of it ticked off. But equally as much still to explore. Typically in a different country 6-10 times a year.

Most recent two bucket list items – helicopter over the 12 Apostles in the Great Australian Bight and an autumn hike in the southern Rockies, New Mexico.
