A fellow blogger, Wandering Earl, posted a wonderful blog recently about his top 50 memorable experiences. Now whilst I don’t pretend to have visited half of the places Earl lists, I thought it would be a nice retrospective to look at everywhere I’ve been so far – sort of a reverse bucket list. I initially thought I might be only able to think of 10, maybe 25 at a push. But I’ve kept on adding and adding to the list, and even now I’m sure there are some major ones that I’ve missed (there may be a Part 2 to this post at some point!). But for now, these are some of the memorable experiences – some bad, mostly good – which have inspired me to continue travelling and creating more experiences.
A blind date to Disneyland Paris (pre-hubby. Never made it to a second date after I faked a migraine all the way home so I didn’t have to talk…)
Being followed by a suspicious man on Moonstone Beach, Cambria
Being stuck in a cafe toilet on a school trip to France, and my friend having to convey the problem to the (non-English speaking) owner. The rescue involved a handy screwdriver and removing a hinge or two.
Go on, have a go…create a list and share it with me!
