One new thing...

I have the Torschlusspanik list, which I've been very remiss with, of late. For awhile, I was very good at setting myself challenges to try new things. Torschlusspanik is the fear, usually as one gets older, that time is running out and important opportunities are slipping away. Here is the list as it stands:

Torshlusspanik List:

1. Shooting (check)
2. Fencing (check)
3. Play croquet at Croquet Club
4. Laser skeet
5. Off road buggy driving
6. Play Assassins Creed
7. Jetpacking (check)
8. The Color Run (check)
9. Invent something
10. Cooking Masterclass (check)
11. Master a Masterclass (check)
12. Perform a rap song (check)
13. Trampoline adventure (check)
14. BMX Riding (check)
15. Do a cart wheel (check)
16. Ride an Electric Bike (check)

17. Astonish Myself
I really must direct myself back into it. Or at least set myself a few new challenges.

In Hawaii, I crossed off a number of things I wanted to see - the big one, seeing lava fall into the ocean was not possible, but I did see a seal on the beach, a turtle on the beach (and a million in the water), whales (I'd never seen one before! - and I even saw the fluke and a fin) so there were a lot of bucket list experiences in one trip.

Seeing the Northern Lights is my next just to convince the family that they'd love it....

Linking for #WeeklyWrapUp and #ThingsIKnow


  1. I remember your list!!! The first time I "met" you was to read your list (I think it was the shooting one you'd just ticked off ... or it may have been fencing?).
    So pleased to see your list back again!

  2. I'd love to see lava fall in the ocean too.

  3. Jet packing would be fun to do but as for the trampoline... my pelvic floor could not cope with that now - would a disaster.

  4. You've already done so many interesting things. I'm more of a fuck it list girl than a bucket list one. Classy. Good luck ticking off the rest! xo

  5. Wow, that's a fantastic list and you've already ticked so much off. I'm impressed.

  6. Northern Lights is up there for me, just go alone if no one else wants to come. The invent one will be a challenge!

  7. Ooo yes I'd love to see the Northern Lights too. There is nothing like seeing animals in their natural habitat - love your pic with the seal above x

  8. Neat post! :)

  9. That is awesome. I'd love to see the Northern Lights too!

  10. You're doing amazingly well checking things off your list! And what an awesome list too! The Northern Lights would be out of this word. My gf went to Norway last year and saw them. I was jealo as.
