To celebrate my first day on tour, I thought I would share my European bucket list with everyone! My list started over two years ago when I first decided I wanted to go overseas, although this is the first time it’s been put together in one place. Whether I achieve them all is yet to be see, but regardless, they’ll certainly be the cause of some wild adventures!
(Please note this list will grow as I find more and more ingenious ways to spend money.)
