Bucket List#1
Posted: 5/23/17 at 1:47pm

At age 70, there are but a few items remaining on my Bucket List.

Next year, I will be in London and Paris for a month-long holiday.  If I can make it through the lottery system, I hope to run/walk the London Marathon.  If not that, then the Paris "Gay Games" Half-Marathon.  And if not that, then the British London 10K.

What's on your Bucket List?

I am 56, and I have been to four continents (North America, South America, Europe, and Asia).  I'd like to make it to Africa and Australia (Antarctica? Oh, please.).

At 23, am I too young to have a bucket list?

Since you could be hit by a cab tomorrow morning, I would say no.

Of course you're not too young.  It's a "Wish List," if you prefer.  No matter where we are on our life's journey, we all can wish.  Right?

Bucket List#6
Posted: 5/24/17 at 2:52pm

At 60, I've been ticking items off my bucket list for a long long time, most of them along with my husband and life partner which makes it all the more worth it. (Yep, we've spent time in every continent but Antarctica. To relate to the OP, our stay in Australia was expressly to participate in the 2002 Gay Games there!)

But lately, we've been hitting those obligatory bucket list destinations (Machu Picchu; the Golden Triangle of India) but frankly feeling less and less rewarded with wow moments. Can it be that the world has but a finite list of must-see stops? For our next holiday, all we want to do is wander our favorite lanes in Paris and Rome-- bragging rights be damned.

I still have 11 US states to visit.  Time, please be my friend!

Bigots, business owners, corporate board members, lobbyists, and trust fund babies are voters too!

London Marathon sounds thrilling! 

In my list there is Machu Picchu first, want to show it to my sons, then to try diving and swim with sharks in Philippines, when I was there last time there was a Typhoon and it was impossible.
I also want to buy property in Tenerife https://tranio.com/spain/canary_islands/tenerife/ and settle there when I retire. It has always been my dream, I love Canary Islands, my parents live in Europe and we would be much closer.

I am someone, who has been blessed to be able to travel.   I could not have imagined twenty years ago, the number of countries/places I have now visited.  I, too, have seemed to miss the WOW moments lately.  I don't know if it is because of the most recent places I have visited  or what.  There are countries that I would love to visit, but as I have gotten older, those long plane trips have become less desirable.  It's just enough for me to be able to"not go crazy" on a two hour direct flight from Florida to NYC.  I just booked my big trip for next year.  I really wanted to go to Thailand but the thought of three plane rides and two days traveling was a turnoff.  Then I thought about the Baltic countries and Poland.  Again, three plane rides turned me off.  So I settled on Mexico.  Although i have been to Cancun/Cozumel on a cruise, this is traveling from Cancun to Mexico City.  Not sure if there will be any WOW factors, but at least it is a 2 & half hour plane trip from Atlanta.

I've taken a lot of long-distance train trips, including four journeys all the way across the US, one across Canada, and several in China.

I would really love to ride the Trans-Siberian railroad from Moscow to Beijing. Also, less ambitiously, the Copper Canyon railroad in Mexico. Unfortunately, political and social conditions in Russia and that part of Mexico are preventing me from even thinking about doing these things for the time being, even if I had sufficient time and money.

Crossed off the Banff to Jasper trips twice now.  Still much to the Northwest that I would like to explore.  I am looking forward to my Colorado Rockies trip this October.  One day I will actually take that piano lesson too.

I went on wonderful vacation this summer and went to parts of Spain, France and Italy so that knocked a couple of countries (Spain & Italy) off my bucket list. The big travel bucket list place for me would be Australia. As a baseball fan, my bucket list item would be to see a Cub game at Wrigley field.

For many years I've wanted to zip-line.  So, on my recent 71st birthday, I did.  Here, at our Safari Park.
