We're inspired by John Goddard who, at 15, wrote a list of 127 goals to accomplish during his lifetime. Although we're not interested in making a 'bucket list' at this time, we thought that a 'wanderlist', a list to inspire wanderlust, would be more appropriate. These are all things that we hope to accomplish during our travels.
Our list, in no particular order, is:
1. Learn to Scuba Dive
2. Climb Mount Kilimanjaro4. Visit all 7 continents5. Skydive6. Drive around a country in a campervan7. Sing Karaoke in Japan8. Learn 'Hello' in as many languages as possible9. Take Dance Lessons11.

20. Attend Burning Man21. Be an extra in a Bollywood movie22.
Eat an insect(by accident while eating dates. GROSS)

*We've seen several travel photos of people riding elephants and it looks like fun. However, elephants at some tourist destinations are treated quite cruelly. We would like to make sure that we don't indirectly contribute to animal abuse, and would rather support an organization that promotes conservation or forgo the experience completely. Any recommendations?
Speaking of suggestions, we'd like you to tell us what you think we should add to our list. If your idea makes it onto our list we will send you a postcard during our travels.
