Hoisting the Bucket (List)

I have put a lot of thought into this over the years. A decade ago I travelled to Australia to study for three months. I walked in a Tasmanian Heritage Site and imagined myself in the world of Middle Earth. I said I would make it to New Zealand before the next ten years. Hasn't happened yet, but it's up there. I definitely see a lot more travel on my bucket list, for the main fact that my blood was meant to go far. I may never have any biological children, but there is something in me that yearns to know all the places I came from. I want to see China, and maybe trace down my ancestral line there.

Other places to go...
St. Petersburg via Trans-Siberian Rail
Hindu Kush
South Korea
All the countries of Central and South America
Quebec City
A desert in a foreign land
South Africa
