Bucket List

Ever since that movie with Jack Nicholson it seems everyone has a bucket list. I don't have one. Also, I smile when I walk by some book shelf and see that infamous book, "1000 things to see before you die." or "1000 Places to visit before you die." That sure seems like a lot of places. I think the stress would kill me.

I have a long bucket list, too long, but that ain't on it!

Hey the Covid thing is easing, if not ending. Can you now get to where you were going in 2020?

We can go to Canada now, you can probably go most anywhere.
No, too many changes in my life and in the country I was going to.

Airline ticket prices have doubled, plus, I now live in the boonies and it would cost me an extra $1000 to get to the nearest major airport.

I wouldn't get on a plane now anyway. I don't want to start a Covid discussion, but Covid is the reason.

I understand you. I have a second home abroad, and I've not been able to get there since 2019, and given we flew over a couple of times a year, it's been difficult not to be able to go..... I really thought that 2022 would be easy to finally get there, but the airlines here have been a complete disaster, cancelling thousands of flights at a moments' notice, due to staff shortages that they caused by layoffs during the C-19 crises.. my husband and I seperated 12 months ago, so now I'm alone.. so again I've not made it, perhaps next year.. :(šŸ¤ž

My bucket list is to go to all 7 continents. I was in the travel industry and was fortunate enough to visit South America, Asia, Europe, Australia and (of course) North America. I still want to go to Africa and Antarctica.

Every trip enhanced my life by making me appreciate other cultures and giving me the ability to compare the similarities and differences. Traveling really opened my eyes to the fact that we take so many things for granted in the US. Visiting Cambodia, where the children have next to nothing but are still happy, really brought home the fact that people are always happy when they don't realize what they don't have. We have so much here in the US compared to so many other countries, and we are still not happy.

That jogged a memory of mine. In Thailand I was in a very poor part of Bangkok and saw some obviously poor kids with some impressive fire crackers. I tried to buy some from them, but the language barrier was a problem. After I gave up I was given some by one of the kids, and he refused any payment. It was a humbling experience.

My bucket list is Covid-protected at the moment. Learn to play the piano, write a novel, learn Python 3 programming, learn to draw and paint, learn chemistry, biology, calculus, Spanish, maybe German, actually use the sewing machine I bought 21 years ago. All of this, I can do at home. A lot of this stuff I already learned a lot about, but I've forgotten most of it.

I never had a bucket list, but my son keeps treating me to really cool adventures, so now I'm starting to get ideas.
My son's "list" adventures:
Hot air ballooning [done]
Ziplining [done]
Climbing wall- coming up next month
Sky diving- declined
My ideas:
Visit Cuba-el pais de mi nacido.
Visit / study at the Wudang Taoist Wellness Academy
Visit Tokyo, Taipei and Seoul.

My bucket is at the bottom of the well right now and it has sprung a leak.

I have two continents to go and I am pretty sure I'll never make it to Antartica. Australia, maybe, but I'm holding out for teleportation.

I always wanted to visit all 50 states. I'm still working on Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota and Alaska.
