United Kingdom and Ireland Bucket List

Processed with VSCOcam with f1 preset

 

My first week at Sheffield Hallam University is over, I thought in celebration I would share my United Kingdom and Ireland bucket list with you all! 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 all the points on the list is still to be seen!
