I'll be embarking on a student exchange in Europe (UK) from tomorrow night onwards. As much as I love the spirit of impromptu-ness and expecting the unexpected, I want to create a bucket list of things that I wanna do over in Europe. This entry shall serve as a checklist. It will not be exhaustive and will follow the notion of 'just go ahead and do it!'

Will be looking forward to a time of no regrets. I wanna look back at those memories in the future and proudly say that, "Yes, I've tried it!"

Here it goes:

• Sleep overnight at the airport/train station (Checked, in Spain, England, Portugal)

• Have a meal at a local's place (Checked, in Ireland)
• Help out a random stranger in distress
• Do something that terrifies myself
