This is the year I want to change “I wish I could” to “I am going to”. What’s on your bucket list that you’ve been meaning to do? In no particular order, here’s #25: Celebrate Holi In India. Holi is the festival of color where reveler throw dyed powder at each other on this day. It’s a beautiful experience and I checked this one off in 2013 in Pushkar, India.
