Have Visited List

I love making lists. There's nothing more satisfying than being able to tick off items on them. So much so, it is rumoured that all of us, at one time or another and some more than others, have added something to a To Do List that we have already done. 
Why would we do that? 
For the satisfaction of ticking it off, of course!

In retirement my own To See Lists/Bucket Lists, call them what you will, exist only in the mind rather than on paper or digitally. They are a work in progress, nurtured by impetuosity or opportunity. Instead below are links to the places that we have visited in retirement with links to corresponding blog entries, listed for no other reason than that they have actually been ticked off:
