Go on a whale watch and see a whale breach.
My son is a huge Derek Jeter fan and I would love to get a photo of him with Derek Jeter. We've been to Yankee Stadium, but can't get near Jeter. We may be going this spring. CAN SOMEONE HELP???
Visit a ghost town.
Bike riding in Nantucket.
Learn to surf.
Lose 35 pounds (working on it!)
Hire a private chef for a month who can work around the dairy, egg and nut allergies.
Spend a week on David Copperfield's private island.
Go to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Watch the ball drop in Times Square from a room at the Marquis Marriott.
Spend a week in a suite at the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan at Christmastime.
I dream of spending a month in France, climbing to the top of the Eiffle Tower, walking along the many bridges in Paris, picnicking on wine and cheese in the beautiful parks and visiting the famous sights of the city.
Then onto a tour of the countryside with a few days lounging on the beautiful French Riviera.
Seeing the pyramids in Egypt is the one thing I really hope I can do before I die. With all the unrest in that part of the world today, I would not even consider going. But someday I would love to spend at least a month there, visiting the pyramids, some of the famous temples, the lighthouse at Alexandria, riding a camel, taking a cruise on the Nile, and hot air ballooning over Luxor.
It is a dream of mine to go back to Italy and rent a car in Florence, taking the back roads through Tuscany to ultimately wind up in Rome. No set itinerary, just drive and stop at some of the towns along the way and stay wherever it suited us.
I would love to attend a Mardi Gras.
It would be so cool to have a NASCAR Racing Experience and drive a NASCAR race car on the track.
I want to rent a camper for a weekend in Talladega for a NASCAR race weekend with my sons (and husband if he wants to go, he's not a big NASCAR fan).
Washington, DC is on our list of family things to do.
Visiting Disneyworld is also another family vacation we would like take someday.
Williamsburg, VA is another family vacation we would like to do. My sons really enjoy history we love exploring these historical locations.
Attend a Somewhere in Time weekend at Mackinac Island in Michigan at the Grand Hotel.
I want to learn to take better photos. I would love to be able to do something with photography, not quite sure what! But I need to perfect some technical skills.
Visit all 43 Presidential sites - we have been to 2 so for, Calvin Coolidge & Chester Allen Arthur, both in Vermont.
I want to have my 15 minutes of fame in a movie or on TV.
I want to do something that really makes a difference in someone's life.
I have done a few things that were on my list. I had always wanted to spend summers at the beach and two years ago I had the opportunity to rent a beach house for 4 weeks. This summer will be the third summer we spend a month at the Narragansett beaches.
My husband and I honeymooned in Italy in September, 2000. We spent 12 days touring many cities and towns including Capri, Sorrento, Positano, Ravenna, Florence, Rome, Milan, Venice, Bellagio, Sangimniano, Padua and even Lake Lugano in Switzerland. We climbed to the top of the Duomo in Florence and rode on a gondola in Venice, another item on my bucket list.
I always wanted to have a luau party and for my 50th birthday this summer, we had one at the beach house. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun.
Rode an elephant.
Went down into a cave. (Howe's Caverns in Cobbleskill, NY).
I unfortunately don't have photos of the following adventures:
I have been on a Carribean cruise, visited St. Martin with friends, and had a week long vacation in Antigua many years ago.
Went on a Jolly Roger booze cruise in St. Martin and several of us jumped off the boat and swam to shore - that was pretty fun!
