One of the greatest benefits of participating in the April A to Z Blogging Challenge is making connections with others on the worldwide web. There are so many interesting and talented people in the Blogosphere with whom we can bond and even learn from. To that end, I am joining my new Swiss friend, Tamara Gerber-Stutz, of Part-time Working Hockey Mom, in her weekly TOP TEN THURSDAY CHALLENGE.
“Let’s present the top ten items on our bucket list.
Be it things to achieve, experience, learn, travel to, etc.”
HERE WE GO!
It’s a mental list, complete with subheadings: Travel, Concerts, Miscellaneous. At the age of 62, I’ve been fortunate enough to have crossed off several items, including the lifelong number one, Greece, and number two, a return to my German birthplace. Thanks to a dedicated mission, most concerts have been checked off, except for number one and that’s coming soon!
Most of these are achievable:
1. Visit Venice | 2. Visit Malta | 3. Visit Spain
We’re thinking of combining these three in a cruise, possibly for 2018
4. Visit Egypt
As an ancient history buff, this has been on the list almost as long as Greece.
Sadly, looking less and less likely, at this point.
5. Visit Vancouver and take the Rocky Mountain train tour
We’ve been mulling this over and are checking into the possibility for September.
6. Visit San Francisco, then drive all the way down the California coast and re-visit San Diego
Made it halfway up and back (San Diego-Santa Maria) in 2010. Spectacular scenery!
I’d like to see San Diego again, strictly as a tourist this time. (Previous visits were family-oriented.)
7. See Metallica live
Number one on the concert bucket list.
It’s finally going to happen on July 16. WOOHOO!
8. Get a Black Lab
Our beloved Dalmatian passed away 10 years ago this month.
I’m surrounded by other people’s dogs (clients) and that’s great, but they’re not mine.
Labs, in general, have wonderful personalities and the black ones strike me as especially beautiful.
You’d think this would be an easy one to cross off, but hubby is resisting.
Do you think I can wear him down?
9. Visit Australia
Highly unlikely, but never say never.
One helluva long and expensive trip.
10. Buy a winter home in San Diego
Not bloody likely – way too expensive! Nice to dream about, though.
Of course, there are many more items on the list.
If we ever win the lottery, watch out!
What’s on your bucket list?
Can you name ten outstanding items?
How many have you crossed off?
Or maybe you don’t have one? Do tell!
