  1. 1) Snowboard at Madonna di Campiglio.

    2) Sleep near the beach in a tent on Tavarua.

    3) Spend a weekend in Ouray, CO and take in the hot springs.

    4) Get my commercial rating, fly a turbine heli.

    5) Race in a SCCA or NASA event in a car I built.


  2. So glad a youngster at you is doing all that stuff! Makes my bones hurt to read it (at 70!). But I did body surf as a kid (when not many girls did that), raced Siberian huskies, and tried to sneak two Foreign Legionnaires off Corsica during a wild adventure on a yacht at 19 (in 1963).


  3. Of the thirty, there are only 2 non-sport things! Is that all you wanna do in life? This is the 4th country I’m living in, and visited many more, but all of these were never on my bucket list to begin with!


  4. 1. Visit the graves of the Shinsengumi in Kyoto, Japan. 2. Win a major writing award. 3. Become a grandmother. 4. See the regatta in Venice, Italy. 5. Learn hang gliding.


  5. You are amazing! Have you ever noticed, you do a lot of things “in the air” and “suspended”? 🙂
    Wondering if we can get you someday to Provence, and maybe a small plane flight over the area OR even better, cliff diving along the Mediterranean in Provence ???? Best, Wendy


  6. You, girl, (just) wanna have fun.. and you sure know how to do it! I think swimming with dolphins and walking the Via Francigena in Italy (preferably with donkeys or alpacas in tow) rank right up there, tied in 1st spot 😉


  7. I just completed my 2014 bucket list with lots of thing, but ti´his must be my top 5:)
    1: Try sand surfing in the Sahara desert, 2: Go on an african safari, 3: Learn to Kite Surf, 4: See the Grand Canyon,.. and last but not least, reach 110 travel days in total for 2014:)

    Most of it has already been scheduled..I’m so excited!
    Thank you for your inspiration:)


  8. Have you ever been to the Galapagos Islands? They were on my bucket list and definitely worth the trip. Very different from anywhere else that I’ve travelled!


  9. Thanks for liking my post. These look like so much fun. Honestly, though I just do not have the time to do these things. But, we can live vicariously through your adventures..Have a blessed day!


  10. Hmmm, don’t presently have a bucket list written down but have many more adventures I want to take on. Let’s write 5 down…

    1. Publish a book in print
    2. Visit all 7 continents (currently at 4)
    3. Skydive (still haven’t done it!)
    4. Backpack through Patagonia (I live in Chile, it’s inevitable)

    and last but not least, the craziest thing on my list, that I knew I would accomplish since I was 8 years old…

    5. Float in space face down watching the earth pass ‘below’ me. Can’t wait!!

    Great 30 items. Have you visited Chile down here? Also I just follwed you on Twitter, I’m @zacharykreid Keep it up!!


  11. Bucket List Top Five:

    Becoming an internationally successful author
    Being able to live financially comfortably
    Providing acting, dancing and singing education for my grandson
    Taking my grandson to Europe
    Living permanently in Italy

    (Wouldn’t mind taking a ride in a hot-air balloon)


  12. Might I suggest “ride the world’s oldest roller coaster”? It’s not a very tall one, nor a very fast one — its top speed is about 12 miles per hour, and its steepest drop only about nine feet — but it dates to the days before they invented the “upstop” wheels which keep the car from flying off the track, and so, it really leaps! That’s the Leap-the-Dips at Lakemont Park, in Altoona, Pennsylvania, and it’s both thrilling and remarkably satisfying.
