A bucket list in case you do not know is a list of things a person wants to accomplish before they die. Whether you know yours or not, we all have a bucket list. A bucket list is not necessarily something you take the time to write out, but instead is a few general things you want to accomplish over your life. In this blog, we will be talking about our bucket lists – what we have accomplished and seek to someday accomplish – and will encourage you to reply with items on your bucket list.
I am very fortunate to have knocked off many items from my bucket list. They often involve sailing and speed, yet this is all on land. (Landsailing World Championship 2014 Video) Recently I realized that my wife Alyson, who doesn’t like tippy monohull sailboats prefered a good sized catamaran. I was then on a quest for the ultimate experience. A Gunboat catamaran is just that balance between amazing performance and luxurious comfort. They are world cruiser at some of the fastest speeds and when you stop to relax you have a stable and comfortable platform. I have researched and found a few for week charter. If you have an interest in coming along please let me know?
I have done some “extreme” sports in my day and have loved every minute of it. Whether that be landsailing, bungee jumping, skydiving, white water rafting, ziplining, hot air ballooning, glacier hiking, blackwater cave rafting… just to name a few. As you can tell, I don’t scare easily. I have been very fortunate to experience so many blood pumping activities. I have done some minor rock climbing but nothing too adventures. I have thought about this bucket list, done some Googling and decided that rappelling down a waterfall sounds like just the ticket! Now, where should I fly to find said waterfall?
Family vacations are always fun, but nothing is more exciting than vacationing with a group of families. My family and a few other families did just this recently when we traveled to Italy. Our time in Italy was unlike anything else I had ever experienced. We visited the leaning Tower of Pisa, saw the statue of David, toured the Colosseum, threw a coin in the Trevi Fountain, and even watched my sister and her friends be confirmed in the Vatican. This vacation was one I will never forget from the marvelous sights to the laughing so hard I peed my pants (granted I was quite young). The only downside is that I decided this vacation was a good time to try out the fedora look, so one could say all the photos of me are pretty much ruined. However, vacationing with other families is an experience unlike any other, and I would strongly encourage everyone to give it a shot during their lifetime.
