Things to do before you kick the bucket...

    I want to try something, so hear me out. Post one thing that is on your life list (if you don't have one, start one today). This is a list of things you must do or see before you die. Skydive, climb Everest, throw a pitch at Yankee stadium ...whatever it is dreamers, dream it, and tell me one.

    After a sufficient amount of replies, I would like to create a hub with all the responses as well as provide tips on how, if possible, to achieve each one. You will each be apart of the finished product, and I have a feeling it could be very cool. Thanks to everyone in advance for all your input.

    I made a mental list several years ago and have already done some of it.  Things like:
    learn to ride a motorbike, buy one, ride it (had a Diversion 600)
    do a scuba dive
    learn to ski
    live in another country  (there's nowhere like home though!!)
    drive on the right hand side of the road
    do my nursing degree
    visit somewhere exotic, 5 star all inclusive (went to Jamaica 2001)

    Now I am on to:
    do a Masters degree
    try to be a good role model at work
    be kind to the environment
    get fit/joined the gym (the body has changed shape...haha)
    be an activist for health without chemicals

    in the future it's about:
    buy a motor home and travel round the world - well, we will start with Europe whilst we have the dogs, then who knows where we will go
    grow my own veggies, in my own garden

    I realise that my lists are nothing extravagant, but I am trying to keep it real and attainable.

    Good luck with the hub.

    Travel to other countries (wrote a hub about this already, plans
    are there but still has to save the money)
    Learn accounting software
    Learn one foreign language and two local languages
    Win the lottery! smile
