Goals - update

Just before my 40th birthday I posted two lists of things I wanted to do... I think it's time for another update on how I'm getting on!!

Ten places I want to go in the next 40 years! (but haven't been yet)
1 Egypt (pyramids, Valley of Kings, Abu Simbel etc)
2 Iceland
3 Taj Mahal (and surrounding area of course!)
4 Greece, Athens and the islands
5 Peru (mayan things)
6 Russia especially Moscow
7 Spain (cities not resorts!) - DONE (Well, I've done one city and that was great!!)
8 The Caribbean
9 Cornwall
10 San Francisco

Ten things I want to do
1 Go in a hot air balloon
2 Go on the Trans Siberian Express
3 Go paragliding
4 Sail in a felucca
5 Ride in a gondola in Venice
6 Swim with dolphins
7 Go through the Channel Tunnel - DONE
8 Fly over the Grand Canyon
9 Swim in the Dead Sea
10 Visit Neuenschwanstein Castle - DONE

So what shall I do next? I think Mum and I might go to Venice next year, but Egypt is still right at the top of my list!! Cornwall might be cheaper!!? I guess I'll just have to wait and see!!

I tried swimming in the Dead Sea. You can't. You gotta change that one... maybe float... sit... lie... hang out... walk... but you can't swim. :)

Floating will do just fine :)

I haven't done any of those things. We've got one of those snow globes of the Neuenschwanstein Castle...
Hmmm, my list would be different. I'd like to walk down in the Grand Canyon rather than fly over it. I'd like to go to China. Inland China. And Beijing. Shanghai. Japan. Northern Thailand. Tibet. Bhutan.

Cornwall? Why Cornwall?

Cornwall? Why Cornwall?

Because I've read so many books set in Cornwall but I have never been there, and it's not very far to go, there's the Eden Project to see there too!

I have been to Japan and that was really awesome I would like to go back, I specially loved Kyoto. I would like to go to China too and Mongolia... but I tried to make the list things I think are possible/likely in the next decade or two!! Asia is not a cheap option, living in the UK!!
