    Lightbulb What's left on your bucket list?

    You know, that list of things you want to have or try before you die!

    Me:
    - Stand on a stage in front of 20,000 + people and share something that makes a huge positive impact!
    - Create an internationally successful, thriving business
    - White water raft in the grand canyon!
    - Surprise my best friends with a 4 week trip, 1st class on a cruise in the Caribbean, Vegas, NY and LA, all expenses paid!
    - Enjoy a white Christmas with my family (we live in Australia, not so easy here!)
    - Learn how to Salsa!
    - Write a best selling book

    I could go on but I don't want to bore you! So what's on your list?

    I keep stuff like this in my mind all the time, but when it comes to listing them I always forget! Here's a few:

    - Live in a house by the beach where I can get out of bed, go surfing, have breakfast and then go to work. If work is self-employed at home, all the better!
    - Cycle a considerably long way, with little time pressure. I was talking with a friend about this and we were thinking of Belize to Lima, Peru. Or Los Angeles to Vancouver.
    - Visit Namibia and Botswana
    - Recycle/reuse all my waste
    - Make money via the internet somehow
    - Have a child (not directly)
    - Snowboard (hopefully in March)
    - Learn to take excellent photographs
    - Visit El Nido and the island of Palawan

    Loads of other things, mostly involving visiting or living in certain places.

    I think devAngel already has a man of her own... as for having children indirectly, that just made me think of the movie Alien

    Funny you should mention that, I did think of changing my country to something like St. Kitts & Nevis or something, get fairly good at archery or something, and competing.

    But I got bored, and instead decided to go to the pub instead

    Thanks! You can be the godfather.

    I could have phrased that a bit differently... I meant not actually give birth to it myself.

    - Live in an apartment in the city (penthouse of course) and own a few others
    - Own a beach house in QLD
    - Have multiple steams of passive income so I don't need a "full time job"
    - ummmm... I'll get back to you, I had sooo many more!
