Wander List

Dreams of world travel and adventure occupy my thoughts today. Here are a few things on my ever evolving "bucket list."

  • Go camping in the redwoods
  • Walk across Britain, staying in Bed and Breakfasts along the way
  • Take tango lessons in Argentina
  • See the Northern Lights
  • Cruise pass giant glaciers in Alaska
  • Feel the mists off of Victoria Falls
  • Visit all 7 Continents
  • Sing Karaoke in Japan
  • Hike to the ruins of Machu Pichu
  • Be an extra in a Bollywood movie
  • Run a marathon in another country
  • Walk through a Monarch butterfly forest
  • Go to Chaco Canyon during the Solstice
  • Get tickets to the Sundance Film Festival
  • Eat Pad Thai in Thailand

What's on your list?

You should run the Athens marathon this October. It is the 2500 year anniversary of the original marathon run.

I love this list! Every other week we drive an hour to visit Sean's parents and the drive is always spent dreaming of what our next big adventure will be. Hopefully next up will be the beaches of Brazil.

You've got a couple of surprising ones. Visiting the redwoods is near the top of my list, too, though.

To Missy, I've been on a container ship and seen the passenger cabins. Yes, you can book them at a decent rate, and the tour was super interesting, but you'd have to like a quiet vacation with a lot of reading, because there's not much to do on a container ship between ports besides watch movies with the crew at night.

Besides the redwoods, I'd like to see Jerusalem, Thailand, Rome, and Scotland (maybe on the same trip we walk across England if you invite me), hike to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, parachute from a plane, and maybe enter an open water swim in a fun place like Hawaii. Also, I plan to live in a foreign country at least one more time, hopefully more.
