  • Very interesting!!!! You have time to make them all happen… besitos

  • This is a great list. Maybe I will sit and make one for myself. However, following the ‘living in the now’, I am thinking that it should be a top 100 bucket list for 2012. That way, I won’t take 30 years trying to complete it. So here’s how I can help you check off some items from your list. 1) You can definitely do a guest post on my blog! 2) I am from Toronto – although I am always traveling. You can get in contact with me whenever you are going to Toronto and I will help make your 10 days here a blast. Ah and since you are in Colombia, you should add – Take private salsa classes in Cali or Medellín! Let me know if you want to do a post and I will gladly post it and link back to your blog. Similarly, I can do a post for you.

  • Wow, this is an awesome list!
    I recommend that Australia be one of your rockclimbing destinations, and Melbourne for the list of cities for 10 days!

    • Thanks Tash! Australia is definitely one of the places I’d love to go! Not only for rock climbing but also because of the wild life :) I’d love to pet a koala…
