No, nothing Sci-Fi but that would be a cool thing to write about one time. This is a mini-bucket list. A 5 year plan.
1) Mardi Gras in Rio
2) Northern Lights in Alaska
3) The Great Wall of China
4) Great pyramids of Egypt
5) Balloon over the Loire in France
Now all I need is someone to go with me.

I’m in for 1 and 2. If you take anyone else for 4 — I will cause a curse to befall you such that the plagues of Egypt look like a two-year old’s temper tantrum. 🙂
(Besides, you else is going to be able to translate all the hieroglyphs for you and tell you stories about the people who lived and loved and dreamed and died there?)
I am inspired to make my own mini-travel-bucket list:
1. Egypt — Giza, Saqqara, Cairo, Luxor, Karnak, Amarna, Siwa — all of it.
2. New York City.
3. A volunteer vacation somewhere.
Sheila, a good vacation could include 4 of 5 of those. Leave from NY and you can get all 5.
I’d go with you on any but 1, especially if you paid my way! O.k., Sheila has hieroglyphics, but I’d challenge her to an Egyptology quiz (terminus 639!). And when the islamist terrorists strike, whom do you want to try to hid behind?
Canadian challenge: why Alaska–Yellowknife’s lights are awesome according Alison’s sister Berne.
Sheila: we got to New York last year and spent a good part of the trip kicking ourselves for not doing it sooner (we’ve lived out here for about sixteen years now). It was truly wonderful. Just give yourself as much time as you can…..
Mike, good point about Yellowknife.
