So you found the page of adventuresbyelin. Elin, that is me, seen in the photo above. I started this blog because I found meaning in life with the help of my bucketlist, and I want to share that with others. And I want others to share with me, theire experiences and achieved goals. I love nature, travel, hiking, being in the sky (flying, skydiving), being in the opposite of the sky (scuba diving) and animals, I like to meet more people like myself. Soulmates if you wish.
