  1. Hey, nice list! I love that these lists are popping up on people’s blogs… they give me lots of good ideas for my own list. I love your weightless flight idea!

    1. Thanks Kirsty. There are loads more things I could add. It could quite literally become endless. I might try and cut it down to make me focus on the things I really want to do most!

      Loving your list too – I stole some of your ideas. Hope you don’t mind 🙂
