46. Visit a tropical rainforest
Updated December 14, 2009
There was a time in my life when I wanted nothing more than to be a wildlife biologist, living in the rainforest and studying the plants and the animals. I was enamored of the lush vegetation and exotic animals, and somehow thought that it would be a wonderful life, living in a tent in the middle of all that. I just ignored the fact that I am absolutely terrified of snakes and most reptiles, or that I am terrified of insects and bugs of all sorts, spiders in particular.
I think I could deal with my fears long enough to pay a short visit, though. And it would be such an experience.
