Seventy B4 70

There are loads of places we want to go and there is nothing quite like a global pandemic to make you stop and think of what you are missing. So we have devised a list of seventy places we want to go before I turn 70. We chose me because I am the youngest! As you can see we are still adding to the list. The pandemic will likely give us a chance to tick off a few Australian places and when borders open we will get stuck into the rest. If you think there are any places we should add to the list feel free to let us know.
