I want to travel the world, too. I want to set foot on every continent, to visit Antarctica, to see the Northern/Southern lights, to backpack someplace, to live with a family in another country. I have all kinds of traveling dreams… =]

To travel more and find true love. I want to visit places like Antarctica, Japan, Greece and Russia.

Allie's avatar

Greece is awesome. Santorini was amazing… you ride up on a donkey. It’s actually optional, but who wouldn’t want to?

I’d love to visit Russia! And Japan, Holland, Sweden, Germany, Italy, Spain, Peru, Brazil, Panama, Chile, Egypt, South Africa, and on and on and on….

I think a couple must see places are. Australia – I have some facination with kangaroos. Japan – gotta love the culture and technology. Greece – because of my heritage. Middle east – for places like jerusaluem and Cairo.

Jerusalem is a must see. I have been there many times and it’s more fascinating each time.

To live, love, laugh and look back from old age with a smile.

willlbrawn: Yay! Another Greek! But I’m only 1/4.

I would like to stand on Masada and watch the sunrise, later that day I would like to stand on Masada and watch the sunset.
I would also like to see my daughter graduate, possibly get married, possibly have children. I want to share my life with her as two adults.
I want to watch my wifes face on the morning of our 50th anniversary.
I want to watch the trees we plant, grow into large shadows over the roof in the summer.

Interesting how all the answers are travel. I’m suprised no one said “Angelina Jolie”.

wildflower's avatar

She’s just not my cup of tea…

judochop's avatar

@spargett: I would like to add that to my list please. Thank you.

syz's avatar

I want to spend weeks and weeks in Africa, watching the wildlife.

sawyer's avatar

Travel to anywhere outside the US (that’s not a war zone).

kawaii_ninja's avatar

Travel (especially Venice, on the account that it’s sinking)
Find love
Have nice kids
Write good books that people actually read
Become famous so that the world will remember me after i die (a bit tragic, but true)

Bring justice to someone who couldn’t have had it without my help.

Bri_L's avatar

Live, and what nikipedia said. Big time.

LunaFemme's avatar

Touch peoples lives and inspire them. I don’t know how I’ll do this but I would feel good on my death bed knowing I helped people in some small way be happier.

LunaFemme's avatar

@spargett – yup, Angelina is on my list too.

hearkat's avatar

Travel is desireable, but what I really want to do is hold my great-grandchildren. (note: I am almost 42 and nowhere near ready to be a Grandma yet!)

Allie's avatar

sawyer: I wouldn’t mind traveling into a war zone. It would definitely be a new experience and it’s something you would never ever forget. Plus, you could tell your children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren what it was like in ______ during the war.

Obtain immortality.

Sample every “Scotch” made…
Attend a Baseball game in every Major League Stadium…..
And if that doesn’t happen…
That’s okay
I’m good…
No regrets…..

gooch's avatar

@allie trust me you don’t want to visit a war zone.

I am satisfied with the hand God has dealt me. I have been to great places with my family. I have done great things.

I can’t believe I didn’t think of this before: SPACE CAMP!!!

boffin's avatar

@uberbatman The house building thing…I / we did that a few years back. What an experience. We did most of the work ourselves…. Would do it again, but getting to old and besides…..We kinda like what we did “Together”.....When you get to the house stage, let me know I might be able to allay any fears….Yes it is a rather large undertaking, but well worth the journey….
