RE: Things to do before you die...

I suggest scuba. Sharks, Egypt, Dolphins. Guess I have been fortunate. AND pretty satisfied with av kit. Most important? To see my daughters happy.

Knowing my luck, the only threesome I'd end up in would be with Louis Spence and his camper, more flamboyant brothershocked

The one thing I hope is possible for me to do before I die. Go here.

At first glance, I thought it was a colonoscopy picture - thought you wanted to go to Susan Boyles party Smile

RE: Things to do before you die...

I am an audiophile, biker and sceptic so I want to ride my motorbike to the Nordkapp and whilst in Scandinavia go and see a prog rock band and then have an ABX test with a Swede, Norwegian and Danish girl.

Surely that would be an SND test. You'd be lucky to have the stamina for X shifty

RE: Things to do before you die...

Please don’t flood Germany, it’s a nice place and my son is working there at this time.Before I die I would like to watch Casablanca and The African Queen, neither of which I have seen.I always said I wanted to go Over, Under and Through, the last is definitely off the agenda but I might achieve the other two.The other thing I want to do is hopefully watch my son perform in a musical in The West End.

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?

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.

I'm envious! Machu Picchu is the absolute must do of the two, though I'm keen to see other parts of South America.

For an option closer to home, I'd love centre court tickets for the Wimbledon men's final. It seems a modest ambition, but it's arguably more difficult to realise than a trip to Peru.
