21 Things in 2021 – Our Family Bucket List

Happy New Year everyone!  I’m going to begin this post by wishing you a very happy and healthy 2021.  I, for one, am very pleased to see the back end of 2020 and look forward to seeing some normality returning to our lives soon.

Along with most of the people around the world, our plans for a fun-filled 2020 took a drastic nosedive in March time, which is precisely why we’ve erred on the side of caution with our 2021 Bucket List.  We shall be focusing more on the simple things in life this new year.

      Thank you. We’ve booked HPS for May, so hopefully, we should be okay. Hope you make it there too.

    I love your list. We have family in Cornwall and haven’t seen them in 2 years now. I had also written a list of places that I was planning to visit in 2020, like God’s Own Junk Yard and the Kyoto Gardens in London.

      It’s been two years for us too, we were supposed to visit last year. I had never heard of either of those places, so just had a quick google, and they look fab. I hope you make it to all these places in 2021 instead 🙂
