Bucket List

I have these written down on a scrappy piece of paper.  I must have opened and closed it hundreds of times, added some more things I want to do, crossed off some that no longer appeal to me and spent hours looking at it wondering if I will ever get around to crossing them off because I have actually done them.

So in case I ever lose my bucket list (or it falls apart from the folding and unfolding) here is what I would love to do in my lifetime:

  1. Visit Bali - and stay in one of those ocean huts with the see-through floors.
  2. Go to the airport, pick a random flight, get on it and go.
  3. Learn to scuba dive.
  4. Go zip lining.
  5. Swim with the dolphins.
  6. Go to Hawaii.
  7. Have a picnic in the mountains (no wild animals invited)
  8. Catch fireflies.
  9. Have a dirty martini (I tried a martini when I was 19 and it tasted horrible)
  10. Go parasailing.
  11. Visit New Zealand.
  12. Visit Ireland.
  13. Get a tattoo.
  14. Take a cruise.
  15. Go to a yoga retreat.
  16. Take a train from coast to coast.
  17. Meet the friends I have known for 14 years but never met.
  18. Complete the 365 photo a day challenge.
  19. Take a cooking class.
  20. Send a message in a bottle.
  21. Go whitewater rafting.
  22. Spend an entire day at a spa (oh heaven!!)
  23. Helicopter over Niagara Falls.
  24. Hand out bagged lunches on Christmas Eve.
  25. Sleep in a castle.
  26. Put a "Love Lock" on the fence in France.
  27. Write something in wet cement.
  28. Go to Alcatraz.
  29. Plant a tree.
  30. Learn one magic trick.
  31. Start a web blog.
  32. Conquer my fear of claustrophobia and go through the Chunnel.
  33. Make a jar of sand from all the beaches I visit.
  34. Ballroom Dance - getting crossed off as we speak
There are so many more things I want to do in my life and I am sure that someday I will find myself doing something and thinking "Well that should have been on my bucket list!"  This next while I plan on crossing off a few more of these things.
