A while back I created this wanderlist and I thought I'd share it with you. Part of me finds it difficult to dream of so many magnificent things mainly because I don't want to be disappointed if I don't achieve these things. But then I remember that I am young and life is long and it's better to shoot for the moon (if you miss, you'll land among the stars). I'm lucky to have already crossed a few of these off my list and it makes me happy to realize all of the beautiful experiences and places this world has to offer. 

Without further ado...

1. Skydive
2. Swim with sharks
3. Learn to speak Arabic and use it!
4. Walk the Great Wall of China
5. Attend Wimbledon
6. Visit Jerusalem
7. Attend a Christkindlmarkt in Europe
8. Hike Everest Base Camp Trek (Bradford)
9. Attend a circus
10. African Safari
11. Learn to sail and sail to beautiful places
12. Dine with a foreign dignitary
13. Eat Baja fish tacos in Baja California
14. Scuba dive in the Great Barrier Reef
15. Live steps to the beach
16. Cinque Terra
17. Visit the Great Pyramids (and Karnak Temple)
18. Attend a rodeo
19. Attend a bullfight in Spain
20. Create a gorgeous library in my home
21. Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro
22. View the cherry blossom festival in Japan
23. Play beach volleyball in Rio de Janeiro
24. Travel to Antarctica and see thousands of penguins
25. Marvel at the Grand Canyon
26. Run a marathon? (Maybe a half?)--this one scares me the most
27. Explore Macchu Picchu
28. Earn my AAA rating in beach volleyball
29. Attend an English Premier League soccer match
30. See lava
31. Go to Thailand and gawk at Bradford speaking Thai to everyone
32. Participate in a Muslim prayer service in a mosque
33. Kiss my husband all over Paris
34. Experience "southern hospitality"
35. Attend an opera
37. Alaska
38. India

I fully expect this list to grow and grow and grow. As the old adage says: 

"The more you know, the more there is to know."
