My bucket list would be to visit Australia, Great Wall in China, Wailing Wall in Jerusalem, to float in the Dead Sea. Visit the Ballet in Russia, along with the Winter Palace. Visit the Sistine Chapel, ( I went to Rome for a couple of hours the queue was too long in the time I had), visit Rio in the carnival time, see the penguins in the Ant-Artic, Visit Alaska.

No not much, but I have achieved the greatest of them all which was to swim with Dolphins in the natural habitat, which I did on our first cruise to the Caribbean. Now that was amazing! Well worth the money for the overpriced DVD that my husband purchased of the event. I think to achieve the rest I had best win the lottery either that or pack my rucksack and start thumbing!

I would like to see the terracotta army and the great wall of china,go to barbados. Swim with dolphins, hawaii.

But most of all i would liie there to be a cure for RA and associated dieases as without that there would be no bucket list.

Allanah, i know your a stones fan and because your going to be in hospital at the time of their gig,i will make it easier for you to see what your not missing. Tickets for the stones concerts are wait for it...... £1,000. If that doesn't put you off i don't know what does. Its in todays daily mail page 23. It is interesting reading Allanah. xxxx

wow, but thats for the corporate entertainment ie you get to meet them! I could have got them on the pre release at £75 each but it was only for two days, but then there would have been the cost of the travel and hotel too!! Oh well, as you say i am saving a bob or two ! Axx

I would love to see Alaska, be at the finishing line of the Iditerod (sp), see the Northern Lights, visit Europe-England/Scotland/Italy/Greece..., climb another 14'er in Colorado, live by the ocean, have a 5 course meal, marry or date a: chef/handyman/plumber/electrician/landscaper/mechanic/masseuse (wishful thinking), play the trombone, and free-fall skydive.

I've only been to two concerts in my life: Steve Green & Billy Joel/Elton John. BJ/EJ was great!
