Wow! You've done some fantastic things.Great list!☺

Amanda D said...

This is a fun list, I'm glad you played along! I don't really see the appeal of swimming in the Great Salt Lake either, but I guess it would be cool to feel weightless. :)

Lucy said...

Tsk Tsk get up there to that Grand Canyon. Hey...take your whole family up there Thanksgiving Day. Then you don't have to cook. Whoa.....good idea anytime. Actually...I've seen the G. Canyon a couple of times and the thing that I find with it is that it is so HUGE that it's hard to take it in. So I kind of found that once is enough for a lifetime. But...I would like to take that trainride from Wilkins...Wilson....Wil something up there. Now that sounds like fun! Williams? Is that it?

Jillene said...

I did this tag a while ago. I am SO jealous that you have been to the top of the Eiffle Tower!! One day....

Kristina P. said...

You've done a lot of cool stuff!

Richelle said...

Fun stuff!

candicerail said...

You have visited the Vatican? How cool is that?

You haven't published a book yet? Well neither have I, but you are a great writer and I would buy your book.

I have been seeing this everywhere ... I must get in on the action :) !!

Whitney R said...

This is fun! I'm jealous of your Paris trip. Maybe I'll do this. I failed at naplobomo... next year, I'm sure.

Jeanette said...

You've done a bit of traveling haven't you? It is fun to look at these lists and see what others have done versus what you've done.

You do have a lot of strength to complete a lot of things and as I have known there are many blogs similar to this one and I really like yours because you have completed more than any of my friends have.
