The ever changing bucketlist of a flight attendant

Growing up I dreamed of traveling to far off places and new adventures, but I never really pictured those dreams becoming a reality. About 2 years ago I started this career as a flight attendant and all those dreams started coming into light! I have had so many amazing opportunities already, but here is a list of things that I want to do/see that I haven’t gotten around to yet:
