Everyone has dreams, goals, and aspirations. You know, places to travel, exotic foods to eat, caves to spelunk. Many people simply keep these ideas locked away in a journal, or turn their dreams into a pin on Pinterest. Daniel Furze decided to take his personal bucket list to the next level by open sourcing it and making it available to the world.

It's inspiring when people share public boards showcasing their product pipeline or game development, but this is the first time we've seen a public bucket list. Daniel is taking tips and suggestions from family and friends, and even hoping to see who’d like to join him on his adventures. Go check out this unique use of Trello and add this board idea to a bucket list of your very own.
