Fun list. 62 down and a few more to go. I'm guessing I'll probably make about half in the time I have left, (unless it's a lot shorter than I think! :-)
Namaste, friend

I didn't realize you had posted this! But you didn't indicate which ones you have done? It sure brought back some good memories for me. Not the caviar, though, that sucked. There are many places on the list I would like to see in person. Sky Diving, Bungee Jumping, nope, not interested.
