  1. Good list!
    Did you like Belize? I actually know someone that owns a beach bar there, so I’ve been thinking about visiting.
    And I don’t know that I’ve ever actually met you but I’ve known Jared since he was a baby :).

  2. Well, you have some great times ahead of you. A few things on my list are: serve for a few days at one of Mother Teresa’s missions in India, take a train trip through Canada and Alaska, do missions work in Africa, go on a Safari in Africa, spend several weeks in Israel, explore Machu Picchu, relax in Bali… We should do some of our bucket listr trips as a family!

    • That’s so awesome!! I didn’t realize you had all of those on your list. If I were doing a personal list, I’d definitely have Mother Teresa’s mission on there. I really hope we can go to Bali together!! That would be incredible! And, we need to do a trip across Canada with the whole family!!

  3. LOVE your bucket list…(again you have inspired me to make one for myself)
    I’ve done a few of the things you hope to:
    1. Lived in foreign country: New Zealand
    15. Explored Rio…all over
    22. Went ALL over NZ, both islands
    23. Did take a photo of the Opera House in Sydney
    25. Heard Big Ben chime…so cool.
    38. Spanish culture, but on the Costa Brava, wine country …not Madrid
    43. Saw Stonehenge (but was super jet lagged). It was literally the first thing I did after getting picked up at Heathrow by a friend who lives there.
    44. NYC…twice! The whole city…”Sex and the City” style…in my 30’s with best girlfriends
    46. Beaches..Hawaii….4 of the islands…many times (I’m a Californian)
    50. White Cliffs of Dover…days after Stonehenge
    55. Eiffel Tower…I kissed on it (does that count?) but not kissed IT. I would if I had the chance again, I love it (the tower) so much!

    I didn’t hear anything about the Caribbean….That beautiful part of the world is MY favorite besides Europe. Happy future travels. Debra

    • Wow, you’ve been very adventurous yourself Debra! I absolutely LOVE the Carribbean, and we’ve been on multiple trips there. I guess I was on a Europe kick when I made my list and forgot to include some things. I’d love to see your bucket list someday!

  4. @Jared and Amber: Wow! That’s a lot of places to visit and worthwhile things to do. Thanks for sharing this. I too have some bucket list of things to do and places to visit, but as of right now, It really pays to be more contented.
