My former partner and I would waste hours upon hours scrolling on our phones trying to find fun, unique and affordable things to do each weekend. We would search poorly put together articles and websites that were crammed full of rubbish options and low-quality businesses. This repeated weekly event frustrated me and got my entrepreneurial brain thinking about how I could solve this. We broke up and, in a pretty low state, I decided to write a bucket list: a list of things I'd always wanted to do but never had the chance. The writing of this bucket list was quite a cathartic experience and made me realise that one day I would be doing all of these incredible things and would - at that point - be in a 'better' place. It was a combination of these two things - the problem of not being able to find fun things to do at the weekend and a bucket list - that eventually lead to Buckt
