Make that FIFTY Things To Do Before You Die

The man who co-wrote the best-selling adventure travel guide 100 Things To Do Before You Die has died at the age of 47.

Unfortunately, Dave Freeman had only visited half the places mentioned in his book whose recommendations included a voodoo pilgrimage to Haiti and running with bulls in Pamplona, Spain.

Ironically, he died in a simple domestic accident, falling over at his home in Venice, California, and hitting his head.

According to co-author Neil Teplica, his friend's mantra was: 'You should live every day like it would be your last. There's not many people who do.'

Mr Teplica said: 'He didn't have enough days but he lived the life he wrote about.'

The guide, which was subtitled Travel Events You Just Can't Miss, started life as a regular website feature called The Coolest Place on Earth. As readers started sending in reports of wild and wonderful festivals around the globe, the two men vowed to try them all out.

Everybody has a list of places to visit, or things to do, but what is your making bucket list?

What should everybody make before they die?

Kiss a Beautiful girl

If you kiss with your eyes closed, it doesn't matter much what she looks like.....and if you go after smarts over beauty, you may find get the other things on your list faster then you can imagine :-)
Many years ago I kissed an ugly girl. Sometimes they're more appreciative.
I feel as I have gotten older that "beauty" (physical) really IS in the eye of the beholder, and that everyone has some form or inner beauty that makes them more attractive outside too (although I draw the line with zombies LOL ).
