Posted:Is there anything on your lifetime to-do list that you really want to do before you die, that 100 dollars (approx. USD 75, GBP 45) would buy? If yes, are there any good excuses for not having done it already- $100 isn't a lot of money in the big picture.
Not stuff like "I want to buy $100 worth of green beans, break into my bosses house when he's on holiday and plant them in his carpet so that he'll have a luscious sprout rug when he returns.."
Somewhat down to earth, achievable stuff that you've always wanted to do, but just have been procrastinating for some reason- e.g. bungee, buy a leaf blower, have a roasted pig on a spit, go to that classy hotel in the city for high tea, plant a tree outside your window, build a birdhouse, have lunch on that riverboat you always see on the river etc..
I've always wanted to go see Madama Butterfly at the opera. $95. Haven't yet because it's come these parts yet (there is some kind of performing arts infrastructure here, so I'm crossing my fingers). Else one day I'll travel somewhere just to see it.
Haven't been to the opera before either. Have listened to a few arias here and there, but haven't ever been a diehard fan of the genre. Just thought if there was one opera to see, it should be a Puccini.
Posted:Take 5 weeks off of work and ride my beautiful bike. Pack it up with a tent and see how far I can get... and then get a bus home I am actually doing a two week trip between Cairns and Townsville in the New Year... it will be good practice! Stocking up on light camping gear at the mo... so the next trip I do will be under $100 'cause I will already have the gear!
There is a world made of air, one of earth and one of water. And there is one made of fire, and all of them fight for supremacy. They are fighting now, in my head.
