To Do

144. Take a helicopter ride

I’d like to experience a beautiful place from the air.

133. Ride an elephant

Updated September 6, 2009 There aren’t many chances to ride elephants, but every once in awhile, I’ll come across an elephant at a fair or festival giving rides. Most recently, I saw one at a small fair in Los Angeles, but the only people in line were children, and I was entirely too self-conscious to […]

117. Stomp grapes in Tuscany

May 11, 2009 Yes, I am a fan of ‘I Love Lucy’. Why do you ask? Once upon a time, wanting to learn more about wine, I rented a wine course from Netflix. It had many DVDs each covering a specific varietal of wine, explaining where it came from, what its characteristics were, and what […]

37. Hang-glide

Updated August 11, 2009 I don’t typically think of myself as someone who is afraid of heights. I’m not, for example, someone who gets nervous on the first step of a step ladder. But I am nervous at any height where a fall could result in bodily injury or death – that’s just good sense. […]
