A "Frustrated" List

I am stealing another idea for a post from Frustratedwriter. He did a post about some of the things he would like to do. Some of the things he had on his list, I have done... like riding in a hot air balloon and visiting the Smithsonian Museums in Washington DC. I'll pass on the riding the camel bit, though. So here is my list, although not complete. This type of list is best kept as a work in progress.

Things I haven't done yet, but want to do (in no particular order)...
  • Visit Yellowstone National Park
  • Take a cruise through the Alaskan Inner Passage
  • Vacation in Hawaii
  • Go to Australia, New Zealand
  • Visit Victoria Island in Canada
  • Visit Maine
  • Visit Ireland and Scotland
  • Experience the joy of grandchildren (I'm ready now, my kids are not)
  • Take a riverboat cruise on the Mississippi River
  • See a volcano
  • Take a "snow" vacation
  • Visit Rome
  • Take my kids to see the Northern Lights (I have seen them as a child, they have not)
  • Design my own home (I can dream)

I am sure that there are more things I will add to the list as time goes by. That, in the words of Frustratedwriter, "is the great thing about living, you can change your lists as often as you like." (He is such a philosopher!)

So, what about you? What goals or things to do would you put on your list?

Nice list Rhodent! Do you want to see a live volcano or a dead one? I've seen Capitan in New Mexico and driven through the Valley of Fire, both impressive sights when you realize how many miles away you are still seeing lava rock.

Hope your list comes true quickly!

That's a really cool list! Hope you get to do all of them! I'd have to think about what I'd put on my list, and it'd be long...

I can just ditto your list for the most part!

Great list. I think mine would be very travel-heavy too.

very good list Rhodent, and I think I will borrow this idea for a future post. Austrialia and NZ would be on my list as well. Most of what would be there would involve travelling.

Take a cruise (to pretty much anywhere)
Travel, travel, travel!!!
Build my own home (I can dream too...;)
Ride in a hot air balloon
Ride in a big stretch limo

Now that I think about it, there's just too many things to mention! :)

I want to visit all the national parks in the US, be in New Orleans during Madi Gras, go on a mythology-themed study tour of Egypt and Turkey, write something that gets published to critical acclaim and get the figure I never had.

Oooh, oooh - please do #1 soon, and please bring L along.

We're about 60 miles away - and I'd love to see y'all!
