  • Mood:
They say life begins at 40, which means my life begins one month from tomorrow. If up to now has just been a practice, it's been pretty busy! Not only have I been married for nearly 19 years to a wonderful man and had three amazing children, and lots of really special friends, I've lived in 3 different countries, all of which I loved. I've been very lucky and very happy!

But just for fun:

Ten favourite places I've been (and would like to revisit)
1 The Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe
2 Teotuhuacan, pyramid complex near Mexico City
3 Downtown New York City, (Statue of Liberty, Staten Island ferry)
4 Rotorua, New Zealand (especially Rainbow Springs, Whakarewarewa etc)
5 Disneyworld in Florida
6 Beaches in Vanuatu (especially the ones in North Efate)
7 Yorkshire (The Moors, Mother Shipton's Cave, Richmond,...)
8 Italy (Especially Florence and Rome)
9 Japan (Especially Kyoto)
10 Ballarat (Sovereign Hill), Victoria, Australia

Ten amazing or interesting things I've done.
1 Flown in a helicopter
2 Looked into the crater of an active volcano
3 Jet boating (on the Huka River and in the ocean in Vanuatu)
4 Flown over the Victoria Falls in a small plane
5 Ridden an elephant in Thailand and a camel in Lanzarote
6 Abseiling down a cliff (the most frightening thing I've done!)
7 Snorkelling around coral reefs in Vanuatu
8 Travelled in a tuktuk in Hong Kong
9 Going on the Luge
10 Walked around outside on the roof of St Stephens Cathedral in Vienna

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!)
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
8 Fly over the Grand Canyon
