Never was I a person of challenges but recently I‘ve been seeing more and more of them and weirdly feeling the urge to participate in few of them. By few I mean mostly all of them. No idea what hit me but it did hard and now I am set to try every challenge there is.

One of the most interesting ones I found was 101 things in 1001 days that I‘m sure most of you have heard of. I think I even mentioned it in one of my weekly finds posts. Basically, you have to think of 101 things you want to achieve/do/try/visit and yadda yadda in the following 1001 days which is a bit more than 2,5 years if I still can count correctly.

Seems pretty easy, isn’t it? Wrooong. Well at least for me. Coming up with 101 things is actually pretty damn hard. My mind stopped working at number 27. But somehow I managed to do this, so here you go, my list of 101 things I’ll try to achieve in 1001 days from now:
