What's on YOUR Bucket List?

I like the idea of having a "bucket list" and checking off goals as I accomplish them. When's the last time you did something new for the first time? When's the last time you did something that scared you?
The answer to both questions for me is jumping off a diving board a few weeks ago. I like to test my limits and push past my fears, but it isn't always easy. My motto is "Feel the fear and do it ANYWAYS." I have a lot of things still on the list and hope I get to check all of them off.

My Bucket List

Surf a wave - I've taken one lesson and it didn't go well...

Swim with dolphins

Ride in a hot air balloon

See as much of the world as I can (Africa, Hawaii, and Prague are on the list)

Wear a two piece bathing suit

Skydive to celebrate turning 60

Run a 10K

Things I've checked off the list

Learned to drive a stick shift (forced myself by buying a brand new car I could barely drive off the lot)

Been to London, Paris, Bermuda, Aruba, Turks & Caicos and adding Germany to the list next week
