I finished wrapped up my first 101 in 1001 goal list but it’s confession time – the thought of not having a set of back-up ideas
for rainy days was driving my litttle OCD mind to distraction. I’ve
become so used to have a set of goals awaiting idle moments, that it was
unthinkable to not rustle up another set. Am I a sucker for punishment? Yes, it seems so…

101 in 1001 goal list v2.0 Adventures of a London Kiwi

I can quite seriously credit sitting here at a computer for getting us
out and about exploring the world a hundred times more than we ever did.
Instead of just frumping at home on the couch in front of the TV
wondering why we were so ‘meh’, we’re continually finding more and more
crazy, wonderful things to do and places to visit.
