Have You Crossed Anything Off Your Bucket List?

By Ellery Adams

I haven't really made an official bucket list. I know that lots of folks want to see a baseball game at every ballpark in the U.S. or jump from an airplane or take a ride in a hot air balloon, but I find baseball games rather long and am skittish of heights.

I can think of a few things to add to my list:

1. The Holy Grail: seeing my name (any of my names!) on the New York Times List
2. Taking a ride on the Orient Express
3. Going to Egypt (again. I've been once and I'd love to return)

And the more I think about this, the more my list revolves around travel. Eating
croissants in Paris, gelato in Florence, etc. Luckily, my kids have swimming with the dolphins on their bucket lists and we're going to surprise them with a trip to do just that in July.

How about you? What are some items on your bucket list?
