List of stuff to do

I love me some list of stuff to do. Life goes so quick but it is still a good idea to put together a list of fun stuff you want to accomplish. Here are some travel items I have now:

  • Exploring Paris like a local (while taking some epic pictures) is the ultimate vacation
  • From the moment one steps onto the red sands of Petra, you are transported to a time of ancient civilisation
  • Sunrise at Cappadocia
  • Second-generation citizens, you’ll see your immigrant parents anew once you understand where they (and all their annoying/endearing quirks) come from

  • We Westerners are soft
  • Breathe in the smelly canals of Venice and linger after-hours in Piazza San Marco once the crowds have thinned
  • The stark contrast of the Pyramids looming over the bustling megalopolis of Cairo is a sight in and of itself, but pales in comparison to standing up close and personal to one of the world’s most famous and mysterious landmarks

  • You know why Europeans have a reputation as being less modest at the beach? Tiny bathing suits, lounging topless, getting basketball-colored tans over months, giving precisely zero damns about what you think? It’s because so many of them grew up idolizing the zillions of shaggy-cliffed, sugar-sanded beaches that ring the islands and southern edge of their continent
  • Some on this list are more questionab

  • The ideal time to catch Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights in the North) is during winter – with crucial viewing time being 8pm to 2am
  • Navigating the vehicular language barrier found in most of the former British Empire (and Japan) can be terrifying, but curiously rewarding once you get a grip on it

  • Start in the Xinjiang (Uyghur) region in the northwest for hand-pulled noodles with lamb swimming in chili- and cumin-laced broth, a bowl so good you might never eat lo mein again
