My “Australian” bucket list – tick tick tick!

While browsing through my old pictures, I found my notes that had the bucket list I wanted to cover in Australia. This included visiting places and the experiences that I wanted to have. I had created this year probably 5 years ago before I arrived in Australia.

I have now decided to dedicate a post that has this list and cross them as and when I tick them off.
