My Bucket List

I am determined to do or see these things before I die – or do something that comes as close as possible to what may be unrealistic. 😉

(Side note: I decided very early that I wanted to see the whole world once. So I don’t include countries that I want to visit in general, but only specific locations and activities to shorten the list a little.)

  • Do another Tandem Hang Gliding Flight in Rio de Janeiro
  • See the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco
  • Learn to speak at least a third language fluently
  • See the Statue of Libery, New York
  • Interview with Barack Obama (I admit I am fascinated. If this happens I’ll probably die of a heart attack.)

  • Eat a real curry and see the Taj Mahal in India
  • Improve the world (I will never tick this off, because you should never stop trying to be a better person)
