I think on the whole I preferred Egypt.

I can't explain why this is so important to me, but I'm set on walking the Inca trail and visiting Machu Picchu while still physically able to hike up mountains and cope with high altitude. It's been an ambition of mine for a decade or more.
While in the region (well, at least the right continent), I might as well take in Chichen Itza. I never had an interest in ancient cultures when younger, and I'd struggle to articulate my fascination with these sites now, but I'm determined to see both in the next few years. Anyone had the pleasure?

I want to ride a killer whale around the Nürburgring during the Northern Lights...
I have some home cinema and Sonos stuff.
But I bet I won't be.
Not with that attitude you won't!
What attitude should I project to become the hangman for a country that doesn't execute people any more?

Travel the world (I have done most of Europe), sleep with a women from each continent. Drink - done , drugs - done, smoke - done. Swin with dolphins ( nearly did that one already). Get a tattoo - not done. Have a threesome! That includes me and two other women. Trying new things as much as possible. See a shrink - done. See a pychologist - done. Try and think of some more.
Go on a plane - done, go on a cruise ship - done, go to Egypt - not done. Skiing - done. Watch 3D lol - done. Ibiza - done that when I was 17!
Threesomes with 2F and 1M were always pushing my ability to multitask. However, 2M and 1F is much more of a doddle.
To you and all others who want to swim with dolphins. DO IT, it is the most incredible experience. THE best of my life, after seeing my son for the first time.
He's not a diamond geezer, or called Joe!
BC, what have you done, man? You've just wrecked your street cred.
Wasn't aware I had any to wreck.
Next thing to do I've never done before is a track-day..... Just need a suitable car first, an automatic 4x4 can do many things, but shine on a circuit isn't one of them.

Hmm, we would need to flood Germany and destabilise the magnetic poles. Totally worth it!

That's on my list!!!!
I have a whole shelf of music that I would listen to, plus watch a bunch of Tarantino films.
Threesome? One woman criticising my choice of music is quite enough

Been to both places, both terrific. If you have to choose just one, I suggest Peru. I spent a week on the Altiplano and it was mind-blowing – for me the most wonderful place in the world (and I have been about a bit). I followed it with a week in the jungle on a tributary of the Amazon within Peru – totally different but also amazing.
