Bucket List

What is on your bucket list?

(Hopefully) being on the uphill side of my "age hill" the question doesn't often cross my mind, but recently, while asking family and friends for advice for topics for this fledgling blog the topic has come up again and again. I am amazed at all of the people who have some sort of travel on their bucket list -- some place they feel they MUST go to before their time runs out. While most of them have more than enough vacation time and money to make this happen life seems to get in the way over and over again. Which makes me wonder...why? My mother specifically has ALWAYS wanted to go to Hawaii, she has the time and the money yet hasn't booked the ticket...why?

My husband and I have been very fortunate in traveling and life experiences, but I would be lying to admit that we don't have a "family bucket list" which does include massive amounts of travel -- places we want to take our son, experiences we have had that we desperately want him to have as well -- I think next on our list will be Orlando and Walt Disney World (I'm so excited to see the park through a child's eyes!)

So I guess my question has to be -- what is on your bucket list? Hawaii? Tuscany? Some nearby lake with the whole family? And once you know the place...why not now?
