Travel Bucket List #19 (Final, Consolidated, Distilled) — My Travel Bucket List

   Of course, no one has 18 bucket lists! What I tried to do in the previous post was to look at the USA and the world from different perspectives, in the process listing many of the world’s greatest tourist attractions. Now is the time to put them all together into a single list, which is my Travel Bucket List! I will try to connect all the lists together into a consolidated whole. Here it is.

       Total = 100 (I have seen 43) I should also note that my list has changed over the years — I have added more places as I have been traveling, since travel has become my passion. If I had presented my original Travel Bucket List, I would probably have checked off 80% of the destinations. Now, however, I have well-defined goals and much work to do to whittle this list down before I die..

    It was a good to see you looking well at the PC game last week, Mr Mazzie. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Lee as are many of your former students thoughts! Your recent post regarding treatment progress are very encouraging!
    I love this website. It truly gives inspiration on how to enjoy life. I can see how quickly it is passing and how little planned activities I have done and put off for later.

    One question on your bucket list? What if one of the things on mine is to beat you in a 9 or 18 hole match play match? And no you can’t have any strokes. I may need a few.

    Be well! If there is anything I can do for you, please don’t hesitate to ask.
