Travel Bucket List

As I wrote about in this Good Things list I have done a lot of traveling. Being in the military can do that for you. But I still have a few places to go and things I want to do:

  • Hot air balloon ride
  • Visit those last two states on my list: North Dakota and Mississippi
  • Explore the Florida Keys
  • Vacation on Mackinac Island, Michigan
  • Take a ship across the Atlantic and explore the Lake District in England. I want to visit the places of Beatrix Potter, Agatha Christie and Jane Austen. (Susan Branch’s book “A Fine Romance”, that is what I want!)

I am pretty hopeful about the first four. (I was planning to go to Mackinac Island fall of 2001 but 9/11 changed my plans.) Not as confident about the last one. I have a hard time picturing myself driving on the wrong side of the road and navigating all around England on tiny cart tracks. Maybe I could do a tour of some sort?

It feels good to still have dreams of adventure and to know that my traveling days aren’t behind me, yet. When they are I will have some glorious memories to keep me company.

The less traveled road.

      1. So worth it. But ask what land they take you over. We did it with a guy who leases air rights to some spectacular land. You don’t want to balloon over garbage dumps
