I really like your list. My thoughts after I'd finished it were: there are some thigs on there I really want to do, other things I have no interest in ever doing, simple things I can't believe I've never done, big things I'm so proud I've done, and a little bit of travel jealously.

upon thinking of more and more states that i have been to, i realize that I have been to more states than countries. but to be fair, that's a foreign country right...

yeah, it is a fun list...
