This list is a wonderful idea.. just to remind ourselves of who we really are. Sometimes, with busy days and busy lives we are inclined to forget.

I think Thai food in Thailand is just food...ditto the tea in Kenya. LOL

I Love your list...it is so ambitious.

My list at this point consists of being at my daughters' weddings, being a good grandma someday, and having a comfortable retirement...someday in like 20 years, because I am not that old...yet.
