Bucket-List: UPDATED!

Dear Readers,

I read all the time in book stores the famous volumes declaring the 100 places I MUST visit before I die. Lined up neatly next to that book is the apt addition of 100 things I MUST do or eat or learn…you get my point…before I die.

So… Rather than buy a book I thought I would start my own list :). Send me your ideas too! The more the merrier :)!
