Bucket List by Connie Vines. #Round Robin

Topic: If you have (or even if you don't have) a bucket list, what top priority thing(s) do you want to accomplish?

“Every man dies – Not every man really lives.” ~ William Ross

Thank you Rhobin for inviting me to be a part of February's Round Robin Blog Hop.

Traveling — it’s the single best activity that exposes you to new cultures, broaden your mind, move out of your comfort zone, allow you to meet new people, and experience the wonders of the world. 

While I have traveled extensively all over the United States, I have yet to experience an European vacation.  My bucket list would include a river cruise that would include  Prague and Bohemia in the Czech Republic.

And, obviously, number 1am on my bucket list, would be mastering a certain degree of the Czech language. (My Czech language skills currently include several nursey rhymes--spoken by my grandmother--and the names and ingredients of recipes.)

Many of the items on the usual, and often read, bucket lists are those I have experienced.  What I believe is the most important addition to everyone's bucket list is learning to experience joy, love, and laughter like we did as young children. And, for me, writing and weaving magical words into completed novels, novellas, and short stories is a way of remembering those emotions and sharing them with others.

Lepši jedno dnes, než dvoje zítra.
