Antartica
Want to see those giant blocks of ice breaking off and crashing into the sea, and in real life not just on IMAX.

Be physically fit
sigh. Look like Madonna circa Ray of Light and after. She looks like a Marvel comics superheroine.

Dance tango in Buenos Aires


Completed!
Done-- March 2007. But it was too short. And unromantic. If given the chance I will go back again, dance more, with a partner who is romantic and wants to dance tango with me too.

Hot air balloon ride
preferably in Africa, watching wildebeests stampede across the savanna

Completed!
Done- in Sedona, Arizona, Oct 2011. Felt very safe. Languid. In retrospect, this was [robably safer than having a stampede underfoot.

Italy
I have always wanted to see the romantic places in the world that you read about in novels or see on TV. Italy tops my list, with Venice, Tuscany, Florence, among others-- as especially beautiful places.

Completed!
Got off my butt and got on a tour. Sept 2010. Italy is everything you've heard or read about. I felt like I just crawled out of a primitive cave-- when I saw the art and sculptures in Florence and Rome,....

I used www.roadtoitaly.com ("Italian Discovery"). It was a little pricey for me but worth every penny! You get your own personal tours (just me and my hubby), with very intelligent tourguides (no college kids working part-time here), and personal transport. You did not have to worry about a thing-- they lay out the carpet for you.

Hey what kind of tour did you do? Did you go alone or with your hubby?





Learn Spanish and French
I've had basic lessons in both- with the result that I mix up the vocabulary of both.

This place is what I imagine when I see those old-timey Christmas cards with the glittering snow and gaslit streets.
