What is on your bucket list?

Post by andreas777 » Sun Mar 04, 2018 9:06 am

I will realize two items on my bucket list in April and May. :D

One item is to listen to the Spanish flamenco singer Rocio Marquez and her beautiful voice in a concert and maybe talk to her after the concert. She will give a concert in Germany in May so I can realize this item this year.

Another item is to fully organize at least one guitar concert. I currently plan the first guitar concert in April with the Australian singer-songwriter Paul Fogarty and the Irish flautist Alan Doherty. The name of the concert will be "Herr der Ringe trifft auf Herr der Songs" (Lord of the Rings meets Lord of the Songs). The name refers to Alan who was the flautist for the Lord of the Rings soundtrack. Another classical guitar concert later this year that I started to organize with one of the upcoming stars will be in the castle of Waldenbuch. I will post more details when the date of the concert is fix. And maybe I can also organize a concert with Rocio... :roll:

There's a hole in my bucket... :D

Actually, there are many things on my list, most of which I can't afford.

I'd love to hear/see Flamenco in Sevilla. But we will probably tour the US parks on the cheap.

I'd love to return to Andechs Monastery but I'll probably take a just tour of Takara sake factory in Berkeley.

I'd love to put solar on our roof to power an electric self-driving car. Probably use public transportation.

Sharing life's experiences with family and friends is really the overall bucket item on my list.

That's very recommended. Sevilla is a beautiful city, but you should have at least 2 weeks for a trip to Andalucia which includes beside Sevilla at least Cordoba and Granada. If you go off-season and travel by train then it's not so expensive.

✓ Meet Rocío Márquez (and hug her)
✓ Organize and operate a concert

I've done everything that I've always wanted to do: skydiving, gaining my private pilot's licence and become a dim sum chef.

Musically, before I shuffle off this mortal coil I'd love to be able to play: Cavatina; A. Franzi's arrangement of the Girl from Ipanema and now James Edward's arrangement of Clair de Lune.

I can honestly say nothing. It not that I have everything or have done everything it's just that as long as I have a good life and family I'm good.

I can't imagine a marathon in the Antarctica. Is this the one that is missing to accomplish #3?
To run (at least) one marathon was on my bucket list some years ago. Unfortunately I became injured 3 days before. :(

First of all, the marathon in Antarctica is very costly, at least $15,000 USD from the US and about €15,000 from Europe. Surprisingly, it is extremely popular despite the high cost such that one has to register one year in advance. My real problem is the Raynaud's disease where the arterial blood supply to the fingers and the toes becomes severely diminished when they are exposed to cold temperature. The hands may be warmed with chemical paks, but I do not know how to deal with the toes while running for 5 to 6 hours yet.

Have you looked into the electrically heated socks / insoles? They're not really designed for running but they might work.

Thanks for the tip. I'll look into that. I'm a little particular about running shoes and socks for obvious reasons.

I don't have a bucket list. It's just too much like a To Do list with the inherent commitment. I retired to get away from that. If there's something I really want to do, I do it. If not, I don't.
