10 things I would like to do before I die

September 7, 2006 at 4:21 pm 2 comments

Inspired by the book Unforgettable things to do before you die by Steve Watkins and Clare Jones, I came up with my own list of 10 things I would like to do before I die. What about you? What would you like to do?

1. Learn Hebrew, German, Arabic, and an Asian language (possibly Korean) – in that order

2. Spend 1 year in Paris

3. Volunteer in an orphanage or pre-school in Africa

4. Write a book

5. Walk the Camino de Santiago

6. Take a cooking course at Le Cordon Bleu, Paris

7. Take a trip around the world

8. Learn to meditate

9. Widen my niece and nephews’ horizons by taking them to different parts of the world
10. Look back and feel that I have made a positive impact on at least one person’s life

Of course, there are at least a million other things I would like to do, but those were the first 10 things that came to mind.

    Hey little brother!!!

    Well, I didn’t mention having a library but that’s because it goes without saying 😉 Besides, if I do get a job as an academic, it sort of goes with the job description…

    I remember you liked ancient history but didn’t know you wanted to see egypt. And if there’s anyone that could enjoy retirement half as much as Alan, that person is you!

    May the force be with you…
