In the Bucket

So I’m young enough to have an ambitious bucket list. I’m also old enough to start checking those marks… This is my list, though I feel like it will be added to and revised aplenty. Most are travel-related but all are life-related. And I think all take money, which sucks, but that’s the civilized world. I should get used to it.

To Visit:

Cappadocia

The land of the fairies.

All the Pyramids

I’ll start here.

Great Rift Valley

Maybe I’ll find Lucy’s momma.

A Cloud Forest in Costa Rica

Now please. Not tomorrow, now.

The Galapagos Islands

Once there, spy a blue-footed booby.

Dude, you have blue feet. You too, dude. Huh.

Any giant Buddha

He’ll do.

Greece and the obvious attractions

For instance.

 

Miscellany

A 5-10K, but a fun one, like with mud and fire… Except I do not run.

Because this looks like fun?

Be debt free. And have a cash-back credit card. (I feel these are perhaps contradictory…)

 

Train my pup to be a certified companion animal.

She’s a good girl.

 

To Conquer:

Zion Narrows

This one’s checked! 7/17/17. And it was good times!

 

Mt. Kilimanjaro

There are cabins to sleep in so it’s not exactly camping. I assume there’re toilets…

Publish…something.

 

Why Not:

Skydive

First question…who pulls the cord? Secondly, what the &@*&?!?

Windsurf or Parasail, whichever won’t drown me.

He’s either showing off or about to die.

Row the English Channel

Or drive it. That’d be sweet.

To Learn:

Spanish/Arabic/Farsi(or Dari, whichever is PC these days)/Mandarin/etcetera, etcetera

Anyone have an extra/free Rosetta Stone laying around? I’m not picky, any language will do.

Kayaking (whitewater and sea-style)

Okay, no.

Scuba Diving

Hawaii seems lovely…

Rock Climbing

Child’s play.

Surfing/Kite surfing.

Dude. Let go. I mean, let go forty feet ago…

 

I got some work to do but fun work, like what travel bloggers/photographers/writers get to do. I just have to make a million dollars first. And quit my job.

  • Beacon Hill Park should be the archetype for city parks everywhere. Quiet spaces, wildlife and an ocean view at the end of the trail. Props, Victoria. Props. .

  • These dudes were my favorite thing in Granville Island. I think it's a cement factory but whatever it is, they got spunk. And cheek. .

  • The view from Beacon Hill Park in Victoria. Love this place. Playgrounds, ocean views and peacocks. Yes, peacocks. And the waterfront has a huge off-leash area for dogs. Made me miss my pup like crazy! .

  • Found out you can anchor here in False Creek for two weeks, no rent required. Putz around town then head out to sea, rinse and repeat. Now I just need the boat...

  • Oh you know, just a Classical Chinese Garden in the middle of the big city. Dr Sun Yat-Sen's urban zen did not disappoint. Loving Vancouver. .
