Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Interesting. I think I'll do it and add it to my Friday post.

Elaine said...

Wow, that was some list.

Ak, you can't tell us you're on a DVD and leave it at that! SPILL!

Cloudia said...

Once again you've made a meme your very own!
"20. Slept on an overnight train"
And awoke at dawn in time to traverse the "great horseshoe curve" in Pennsylvania with the rear of my own train visible accross the (horse shoe-shaped) gorge. The rocking was delightful, the toy-sized accomodations good practice for my life aboard. . . You got me going, Ake! And thanks much for including a link to my comfortSpiral blog. so glad you feel that it's brought Hawaii to you! aloha, my Friend!!

Emmie said...

wow thats some list there! You fill up quite a lot of it too! There's so much to be proud of! x

buffalodick said...

Quite a bit done, still have a few things left to do!

Finding Pam said...

I loved this meme! You have been busy. I did this meme a while back and I felt like I had barely done much in my life. Of course, the things I had done were not on that list. haha

I am so enjoying my award. Thank you again. Smiles ;)

G-Man said...

Great List Ake...I read a book once, just once!

Akelamalu said...

I look forward to reading your Nick :)

I blogged about my TV and DVD appearance here Laney

That must have been a fantastic trip Cloudia!

Well I have lived quite a long time Emmie LOL

Oh definitely still plenty to do Buff! ;)

I enjoyed doing the meme too Pam, I was surprised at how much of it I had done. :)

Daryl said...

This is a good one .. I will do this for the weekend .. thanks to you and Saz

storyteller said...

I did this one a while back at Small Reflections. I enjoyed reading yours and am a wee bit jealous that you've visited Africa. Somehow it doesn't compare with visiting the Alamo or Hawaii ;--)

cheshire wife said...

Plenty of food for thought there.

Gledwood said...

i was wondering how many of them I've done... I HAVE slept on a nighttrain all the way from southern spain to paris ... sure there was one change somewhere along the line

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

i've done some of them! your blog looks really nice!!

smiles, bee

Ron said...

FABULOUS meme, Akelamalu!

Ok....but I'm STILL freaking out that you BUNGEE JUMPED!!!!

Yes, you are mad...but I SO admire you!


Have HAPPY Wednesday, my friend!

P.S. and no more bungee jumping for you!

Akelamalu said...

G-man you sneaked in there whilst I was answering comments! You've only read one book??

Oh goody, I look forward to reading yours Daryl.

Ah but Africa is so near to us, just like Hawaii is near to you Storyteller and I would love to visit both the Alamo and Hawaii!

Yes I suppose there is Cheshire Wife :)

I'd like to sleep on a night train Gleds perhaps the Orient Express! :0

Aw thanks Bee, I've changed the colour so that the snowflakes would show at Christmas and liked it so I kept it. :)

Ron no, no, I didn't bungee jump! It's not emboldened I was just making the statement that I'm not mad enough to do it! Sorry to confuse you m'dear, I'll make it right.

San said...

You've experienced a lot, Akelamalu. And you're planning further adventures. My response to the Sung Karaoke would be the same as yours. LOL. Oh well, maybe I would do it riding in a gondola.

TopChamp said...

Happy New Year! I quite wanna nick this - have done loads of these and they were much fun x

Lu' said...

I like number 52 :)

Anonymous said...

I think this is one of the most well-travelled memes I've encoutered. Enjoyed your answers!

KB said...

This is a cool meme. I will give it a try soon.

Maggie May said...

You have done quite a lot of interesting things and who knows if you will manage that bungee jump before you take your last gasp!

Akelamalu said...

LOL Singing Karaoke whilst riding in a gondola sounds like fun San :)

Oh do take it Topchamp I'd love to read what you've done. :)

I enjoyed #52 too Lu ;)

Yes it's been around somewhat Citizen ;)

Oh good let me know when it's up KB!

There's NO WAY I would ever do a bungee jump Maggie I'm scared of heights! :0

Smalltown RN said...

That is an incredible list....lots of things I haven't done or seen....I guess I better get on it....

Misty Dawn said...

You crack me up - Wanna go for a run with me, Ake?

I think I might steal this from you... if you don't mind.

Linda said...

Looks to me like you've done some pretty great stuff. I would love to watch a thunderstorm at sea but I guess I'd have to go to sea to do so, wouldn't I? Lord willing I will get on a cruise ship someday!!

Julia Smith said...

I shall put this on my memes-to-do list. Imagine - not everyone can cross off the 'visited a Nazi concentration camp'. Bungee jumping, sky diving and flying in a helicopter are all on my not-on-your-life list.

Dr.John said...

Second place I saw this meme today. Your answers were more fun.

CrystalChick said...

What a great meme and a good list of things you've done! It's a great way to learn little bits more about already pretty interesting people. :)

I haven't been able to read an entire book in the last few months.... I used to absolutely love reading and now for some reason I get really sleepy every time I try to get into something.
Still in vacation mood maybe?

Have a wonderful weekend. :)

CG said...

Wow, what an exciting life you lead :)

Akelamalu said...

I'm sure you'll catch up RN ;)

A run? Me? Not on your nelly Misty! LOL Take it honey, I look forward to reading your list. x

You really don't know how much you have done until you do a meme like this Linda, I surprised myself!

I take it you don't like heights much either Julia? I'll be looking out for your list. :)

So glad you enjoyed it Dr. John x

I tend to read more when I'm on holiday and lazing in the sun Crystalchick but like you I fall asleep easily! :0

Akelamalu said...

I've never really thought about it like that CG but I suppose I do! :)

Skittles said...

The last time we went to Florida I told hubby we HAD to go to Disney. I grew up down there and had been so many times, yet he never had. He hated it! I was incredulous. ;)

Akelamalu said...

It's not somewhere I've ever wanted to go Barb. However I would go if it was with my grandkids. :)

Real Live Lesbian said...

EEEeeeeekkkk!!! Do people REALLY hold preying mantes??

Great list!

Jo Beaufoix said...

I might do this some time, but I've not done all that many of them. Hmmmmm, I need to make a to do list. :D
