Charline Eberhardt – one inspirational bucketlist to check out

It has been a while since I’ve had a new bucketlist to share with you guys. Here is Charline’s, Charline is in the middle of an amazing world tour which she shares over at her blog Elephants to Kangaroos (check it out). Charline is an incredible photographer, her love of photography spurred her to leave her job and safe life (sound familiar) to travel and really give professional photography a fighting chance. The title of Charline’s blog, Elephants to Kangaroos shows the extent of her journey which has taken her from her native France, to Africa, through South-East Asia and now onto Australia, where we met, and I planted the idea of a bucketlist…
