- revisit all the places I visited as a child especially (but not limited to) Turkey, Syria, Switzerland, Holland, and Germany (Spain is this summer) plus add to that list most everywhere in Europe especially Scandinavia and Eastern Europe, Central America, and South America.
- get SCUBA certified (summer of '09, maybe)

29. I couldn't come up with 5.
I think I'm already doing the things I want to do - have great kids, love my spouse, have a house, feel content.

I don't mean that to be boastful - I actually feel more lame about it than proud. I just try to live in a way that I wouldn't have a lot of regret if I up and died one day.

I would like to drink half a bottle of wine in the sun in Sicily.
