The Bucket List


Summer may be over but the adventure doesn’t have to stop … 

The definition of bucket list states: a number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime.

How about within one summer holiday?

After working two jobs, pretty much full time for the first month of being at the beach, I didn't have a lot of time to adventure or for myself. So my mission when I dropped down to one job and had days off was to cram as much adventure as possible into the rest of the summer. 

I sat down with some friends and we came up with our summer bucket list of adventures in and around Whangamata! Let me tell you it revolved a lot around mini putt haha and we didn’t complete it all! But the adventures we did go on were amazing and this summer will always be one I will remember!

I had a few requests to share what we came up with, so here is the official
