Ever thought of the things you want to do - at least ten of them - before your death? I know that's quite a sordid idea for some but come on, if you look at the bright side, coming up with your own to-do-before-I-die list can be inspiring and motivating.
There’s a suggested 50 Things To Do List over at TheTravelersNotebook which included ideas like:
Now here’s my shortened list:
You could just imagine the look on your friends’ faces if you show them your passport!
Or probably be enclosed in a cage that’s placed near sharks. That’d be quite the thrill! To swim underwater with these amazing creatures would definitely be a life-changing experience for sure.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s a gay pride parade or what. As long as it’s a carnival and it’s in world famous Brazil - best known for their parties, most elaborate costumes and charming locals, this is something you should try at least once in a lifetime!
Explore as much as you can. Expand your horizons! You will learn so much from traveling - from new cultures to exotic food to words meant only for tourists to use to learning how to stop yourself from overspending. You’ll learn so much about yourself and about your skills and level of tolerance. Think Amazing Race!
Especially those of prominent people, of breathtaking landscapes and of endangered species.
Not only do you get to meet new people, you will see how others appreciate the one global language that we have - music.
And by this I mean the bus, train, motorcycle or ferry. Avoid riding taxis or cabs. Be one with the locals and see their country the way they do.
I agree with what the list over at TheTravelersNotebook says. Regardless of whether or not the Olympic Games has become too commercial for its own good, it’s still the undisputed biggest gathering of talented athletes around the world and it would feel amazing to see them compete.
Or at least do the Skywalk or Bungee Jump. That is most definitely an ultimate thrill - probably next to going to space (which not all of us mere mortals can do).
While I know that this is just supposed to be a 10-item list, I can’t help but add this: meet and talk to a person who has changed the world and be inspired by him or her. Someone like** Nelson Mandela**, the Pope, Wangari Mathai (best known for her efforts to plant a million trees) or if she was still alive today, Mother Teresa.
