My Bucket List

  Jim and I, along with our good friends and traveling buddies, Tom and Sue,  were sitting on the beach at Grand Case in St. Martin talking about where we wanted to go for our next trip.  Lots of ideas and locations were mentioned.  Most of them sounded pretty good, when the thought came to me–we need a plan!  We need to thoughtfully make a list of the places that we want to go, and then work from that list.  And that is the way our “Bucket List” came about.  We agreed to individually come up with 10 places that we really wanted to visit.  Here is what we came up with:

  • Fiji
  • Bali
  • Paris
  • Niagara Falls
  • Venice
  • Cap Jaluca
  • Belize
  • Australia
  • Play golf in all 50 States
  • Cruise on one of the Sea Dream Yacht Club boats
  • Rent a sailboat and sail for a year
  • Antarctica
  • Brazil
  • Turkey
  • Baltic Sea
  • Russia
  • The Nile and Egypt
  • Alaska
  • Peru
  • South Korea
  • China

Do you have a bucket list?  What’s on it?  Have you been to some of our choices?  Let me hear from you.  As we work on our Bucket List, I will write about it and share the stories.

    Nice bucket list.

    I’ll say that everything depends about what one is interested in. Examples: Beauty of the nature, beauty made by a man, historical places, tropical beaches with coconut palms, personal suspensions, to have an experience that is not in other part of worlds etc.

    From Your list I would drop off Baltic sea. There is not so much to see and that I know, because I have been travelling during many summer from Helsinki to Travemünde (Germany) by boat vice versa. When in Russia, so the destination is St. Petersburg.

    Then it is important to decide at which season one is travelling. Sometimes winter might be real experience. In my country for example we are making the most big Snow Castle every year. One can sleep in the hotel of this castle, this must be something. Also one can take a ride onboard on an icebreaker and swim in icy water, but of course protected properly. Think what kind of videos You could have.

    About personal suspension, I could mention driving fast. That is possible on German motorways. Think what a feeling it is when one is driving at the speed of 250km/h or 155 miles/h. I can say it, feeling is fantastic! Next summer I’ll make it again with my car.

    Here are shortly my thoughts.

    Happy travelling.
