What do YOU want to do before you kick the bucket, buy the farm, and start pushing up dasies?

Apart from the movie “The Bucket List” with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson, there is another awesome movie called “My Life Without Me” – don’t remember the actors, but it’s a great bucket list story about a young woman.
As for myself, I’ve been to about 30 countries so the the desire to travel is not so strong anymore, (+ lived in Paris, Amsterdam, London, India, Tokyo) ridden camels in Sharjah and elephants in Thailand, flown a two-seater plane, performed fire blowing in a circus in Germany and done lots of other crazy things so it’s hard to come up with a good bucket list, but here we go:
– Have my photographs published in a large size photo book.
– Move back to London
– Have exhibitions of my paintings and photographs in London and Paris
– Spend some time in Paris again.
– Have a young black girlfriend.
– Drive a Ferrari for a day.
Wow – this is more than I expected to come out. Better start doing something about it.
Bump… Because this thread not only reminds me of when I was still pretty new to this site, but I also want to hear some new ides on it now that there are a lot more HEthens to contribute.
