My Bucket List

A friend of mine is travelling in Italy right now.  She posted photos of Cinque Terre on Facebook.  I commented that I was jealous because Italy is still on my bucket list.  It occurred to me that I am either incredibly selfish or pathologically addicted to doing things that are not routine.

I have lived in five countries in three of the seven continents but I am still not satisfied.  I have travelled to dozens of countries and the only continent left for me to set foot on is Antartica, but I am still not content.  What will it take for me to stop travelling and settle down?

My bucket list is not getting shorter.  When I was a child I wanted to go to Greece which I called “the birthplace of civilization” and to Rome which I called “the cradle of civilization”.  A few years later, I had added Egypt to the list because of the Pyramids.  I also decided that I was going to live in Paris but I can’t honestly remember why.  When I did finally start travelling, more places got added to the list than got struck off.  It was a bit like a hamster-wheel.  I was going places but not getting any closer to finding completion.

If you would like me to write about a particular place, just ask.  It is always my pleasure to share the trip.
