What fun. And, yes, Morocco counts as visiting Africa!

I Am Woody said...

Thank goodness summer is coming up so you can cross off #26!

And the Perseid meteor shower is every July.

I'd say you were making impressive headway on the list.

Would it be cheating if you KNOW someone who's done a few of the other things (but NOT the bungee jumping)???


Busy Bee Suz said...

I think you should have combined your whale watching with skinny dipping. Two birds; One stone.

I'd have to add a few more bold letters! Of course I'm an old chick!
I love this list! Ya see I've been MIA a few days 'cause my house has been packed full of grandkiddos the last few days. Oh baby, I soooo tired!

This is a great list! Some of these I am glad to say no to (like chicken pox!), some I am very glad I have been able to do (any and all involving travel) and others I would like to do but might never get around to.
