Yes! Machu Piccu, Galapagos, Egypt, Greek Isalands, Bucharest and Africa. I travel often and sometimes want to return in a different season. I also like staying in one area for a week or so, but it does limit my "count". I prefer quality of visit over quantity of places, so take it slow. I have been to over 29 countries and all 50 states. I was fortunate to live in Hawaii for 5 years which was a great jumping off point not only to outer islands but to Guam, Phillipines, Japan, Maylaysia, Fiji, Tahiti...

My parents gave me the travel bug!

Have been to 9 of the ten in this bucket list, but doubt I will ever get to Hawaii. This country we live in is so diverse and beautiful. I want to explore more.

I want to visit as many National Parks, National Monuments, National Historic Parks, National Lakeshores, National Wild and Scenic Rivers that I can before I am too old and decrepit.  I have hiked in 35 parks so far plus monuments, historic parks, lakeshores and kayaked several wild rivers.  I am 64 now and hope to retire at 65 and have plenty of time to add to the list.  I will prioritize those that are in the crosshairs of the current administration before they are handed over to the mineral extraction industry.

I have 40 items on my bucket list, I have done 8 (Hawaii, Grand Canyon, Transatlantic cruise, etc.) and I am sad that perhaps I may not be able to do some because of the state of the world today.  I would worry about going to Egypt to see the last remaining 7 Wonders of the World, the Pyramids.  I would be afraid to go to Jordan to see the city of Petra, a new 7 Wonder of the modern world.  And, of course, there are some I fear I will not be physically able to do such as Yucatan Cave Diving (have to work on my bucket list item of "diving" first).  But I hope, and will work on the more achievable ones first, like visiting Macchu Pichu or Easter Island.  After all, I have time, and that's why they call it a "bucket" list!
