Bianca Bauza – Bucket list

As I continue to shine a light on cool people and their Bucket Lists this week I present Bianca’s list. Two and a half years ago Bianca’s world changed dramatically when her boyfriend of 7 years left the picture…following some soul searching (which included selling all her stuff and quitting her job, sound familiar?) she set off to explore, photograph and write about her adventures on her very nice blog Nomadbiba. When I saw that her site was chock full of action pictures, with Bianca rock climbing,  leaning out of helicopters, crashing pushbikes into trees and the like I couldn’t help but think that she should sell little action figurines of herself to inspire the next generation of adventurers.

Anyway…on her travels, Bianca has done heaps of fun things including:
