I may have alluded to the fact I really like lists my last post…. But this love goes far deeper than a mild liking…..
I have traveled a lot with my mom and whenever we get to a new city, we always check out the top 10 things to see or do or eat in our new locale. Even before the times of the internet and GoodReads.com I kept a list of all the books I had read – always with my rating of them, and sometimes even a review or plot summary. I operate with grocery lists and to-do lists… not that I cannot function without a list, but it is so much more fun to be able to tick things off!
So that leads me to think I ought to have a list of the adventures so that one day, not only will I have the joy of doing them, but also the pure delight of checking them off my list…. here it goes:
|By Foot||Progress||Get Inspired|
