The Bucket List: 26 days to go

And so, as we speed to the end of the year, everybody’s feeling a bit sluggish and daydreaming of time off on the beach, sipping cocktails or just spending time with loved ones.

I’ve been to both these countries, but this time around I look forward to taking it real easy and enjoying every single second. More on our travel plans when we have visas…eek.
