✨ Sojournies Travel Bucket List ✨

Since I help others check off their career and bucket list dreams I always get asked - "Sojourner, what's on your bucket list?"

So welcome to a sneak peek inside a few of the activities and experiences I hope to accomplish in my lifetime. It changes every now and again when I learn about something new I want to do. It's an imperfect list, but I'm not trying to live a perfect life. Just one full of adventure!
