    Great list, Thanks for sharing!

    I hope to do all those, especially # 11. Kite surfing in Spain and other places around the world is one of my life goals!

    I would add to the list: Do something for someone in need. Something big, like buy a house, give them a car or pay a whole year of their utility bills!

    I would add Travel to every continent. (Maybe not Antarctica) I think traveling is the best way to learn about the world (and yourself) and is a ton of fun. Going to every continent would really give you a great perspective on life and a lot of good memories and lessons.

    Travel is very high on my list and there are places I still want to travel to - Greek Islands(planned for next year) , Russia, and Spain. My husband estimates we have already spent $300,000 on travel but we have enjoyed it and isn't that great to have great memories.

    I wrote my list of things to do before I die and it is at 90. Though, I must admit a large portion of those things I am no longer interested in doing. As I evolved my taste have changed,(even in just the last couple years when I first wrote the list).

    P.S. #2 was on my list already

    2. Attend the Olympics.
    I think I am going to add this to my bucket list as well. Most of it are part of my list too. I couldn't take out Travel - its the best part of everything. With travelling, you'll get to meet a lot of people and learn different culture. It's what I am doing now...

    Everyone has this kind of thinking in his mind but main issue is money. Who will give you money for them.

    Well done Mousumi for a great list.

    I would like to meet the Queen of England but I guess she won't have any time for me as she has to walk and feed all those cute Corgis every day. God I wish I was one of them dogs...lol

    One of the things on my 'Bucket list' is to attain Enlightenment and would be honored to meet and talk to the Dalai Lama. Try and get answers for the meaning of life, how to improve 'Self' and live the highest possible life.
