Top 50...

We get lots of re-runs of tv shows and on BBC as well as NBC's Today show they talked about Live Life: 50 Things to Do or See before you die.

Note: Nick suggested I make comments about where I am at with some of these, so I have updated to do such a thing.

It got me thinking and here are mine in no particular order:-
1. Swim with dolphins
2. Swim with a whale shark at Nigaloo Reef
3. See the Egyptian pyrimids
4. Walk the Inca trail to Machu Picchu, Peru (this is planned once I finish my last 2 subjects, which I hope to sort out on our next trip to Sydney)
5. Go on an African safari
6. Volunteer 2 weeks at the Tiger Temple in Thailand
7. Learn to Belly Dance well (I am learning the basics and based on this experience I have a long way to go)
8. Hold my very own art exhibition
9. Organise a Hong Kong Book Crossing day
10. Adopt a Chinese baby girl
11. Organise for the 'girls' in my family to have a girls day at a spa
12. Have an article published
13. Organise a successful charity ball
14. Create recipe books as gifts
15. Learn to speak Cantonese
16. Ride a gondola in Venice
17. Take the Orient Express from Venice to Paris

20. Own a home in Australia
21. Hold a formal dinner party where everyone dresses up
22. Be satisfied with my body
23. Go to one major race meeting in each State of Australia (We've been to Royal Randwick on the 2nd January, Darwin Cup, Perth Cup and Derby Day in Melbourne)
24. Take my niece and nephew on a holiday, just the 2 of us
25. Have my family friends visit me at least once in their lifetime (We've had my parents, Vicky and Tess... I'm keeping my fingers crossed for everyone else - no pressure)
26. Explore the Mexican pyramids
27. Visit Glastonbury and participate in a Goddess event
28. Inspire someone to do something they never thought they would do
29. Scrapbook our wedding photos
30. Experience a white Christmas (It nearly happened when I backpacked around Europe but I was sick of the cold that I spent Christmas in Nice, France where it was a little warmer and no snow)
31. Research our family tree (I think my mum has started on my side)
32. Swim nude when I’m in my 40’s, 50’s and 60’s (I did in my 20's and 30's and I've got another couple of years to warm to the idea)

33. Write a letter to the people who inspire me and tell them why

43. Get over that people don't send cards anymore
