- Visit every continent

– Skydive (very likely this summer)

– SCUBA the Great Barrier Reef

– Run my own business

– Sell all of my stuff (easy because I’m a bit of a minimalist) and live on an island somewhere. I’d like to spend at least a few months with some indigenous group.

– A couple other things I won’t say publicly =P

Apart from the movie “The Bucket List” with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson, there is another awesome movie called “My Life Without Me” – don’t remember the actors, but it’s a great bucket list story about a young woman.

As for myself, I’ve been to about 30 countries so the the desire to travel is not so strong anymore, (+ lived in Paris, Amsterdam, London, India, Tokyo) ridden camels in Sharjah and elephants in Thailand, flown a two-seater plane, performed fire blowing in a circus in Germany and done lots of other crazy things so it’s hard to come up with a good bucket list, but here we go:

– Have my photographs published in a large size photo book.
– Move back to London
– Have exhibitions of my paintings and photographs in London and Paris
– Spend some time in Paris again.
– Have a young black girlfriend.
– Drive a Ferrari for a day.

Wow – this is more than I expected to come out. Better start doing something about it.
