Angie Away’s Travel Checklist
Call it a travel bucket list, a life list or even a plain old to-do list. It just wouldn’t be my life without heaps of goals and mountains of lists, even for the fun stuff. I’m adding to this one as ideas come to me, but I’d love to get your thoughts on anything I’m leaving out so far.
