5. Read as many classics as possible.
6. Visit the Canadian Rockies.
7. Learn to speak better French.
8. Learn to speak basic Japanese.
9. Dance en pointe (preferably without breaking my feet)
10. Bungee jump for charity (HDA of course!)
11. Drive an Austin Martin.
12. Snorkel in a tropical sea.
13. Learn to dive (off a board or poolside – not the ear drum bursting type!)
14. See the northern lights
15. Go white water rafting
16. Help as many other people as possible, in as many ways as I can.

I am replying to myself because I thought of some more things

11. I want to see the grand canyon

12. When I was a kid, twice I went to Niagra Falls and didnt go on the Maid of the Mist (the boat that goes near the waterfall) because I was too scared. I really want to go back and do this.

13. I have travelled quite alot over Ireland, its where many of my family come from and I want to go back and travel and see more of it. My Irish family did comment last time that I was there that I have seen more of Ireland than they have hahaha but there are particular sections that I am desperate to see.

14. I would like to learn another language - even basically

15. I would like to finish my degree

16. I would like to write a novel, just for fun
