Scuba diving bucket list

As usual I am back with another list – a scuba diving bucket list. This is the list which I wish to maintain so it can guide me through ticking off some of the awesome diving sites around the World. I am still very new to diving (even though I have done about 15 to 20 dives till now) and I wish to explore more of the under water world and stuff that lie under.
