Mirta’s Ginormous Bucket List

Welcome to my GINORMOUS Bucket List. It is a never-ending work in progress, continuously being altered, updated, contemplated and rejuvenated—much like myself.

Before you even ask: Yes. I know the bucket list is huge. Yes. I do think that I can complete everything on it. Why? Because Napoleon Bonaparte said “Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools.” – and I am no fool.
