    Those are some lists! They show your adventurous spirit and your persona. You have done a lot of traveling too which I’m sure has enriched your life. I love that you seem to be always ready for more stretching and more exploits. I hope you visit every place you list!

    Loved reading through your “Adventures to have before I die.” I think one of mine would be to visit Indonesia! One of my childhood friend’s lives there. I hope to go see her one day! Also, I think you should consider Northern LIghts in Finland! They are spectacular! Listening to your favorite songs as I write a few more comments!
