Bucket List

 There was once a thing on face book about bucket lists (made popular by the movie) and I just started to think of my own real bucket list. I am reposting the facebook one but adding my own items that I really want to do in my life. Since I am now separated from my wife of six years facing divorce I feel that this maybe an opportunity for me to do things I always dreamed of. So long post .

Things I want to do before I die:
Make my daughter proud
Travel to the west coast
See the rain forest.
Drink coffee in Seattle
Go to Canada
Go To Israel
Go to Hawaii
Find a true love that will last
Drive across the United States
Make love on a beach
Go to Washington DC
Go to San Francisco
Get a tattoo
Go skydiving
Go ice skating
Go to London
Go to Greece
Go to Italy
Go to Germany
Visit the Louvre

See Paris
