Things to do before you die

Posted on September 29th, 2012 by Jim

Living your life to the fullest, means living like the next day will be your last. And there are so many things to do before you leave the world.

Visit one of the seven wonders of the world

Okay so admittedly there are a lot of monuments, so go and see the ones that inspire you the most. They are dotted around the world, so it would take some planning and dedication. If you want to see The Great Wall of China, Stone Henge, the Colosseum, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Hagia Sophia, the Taj Mahal etc, do it. You only live once.

Eat at one of the world’s best restaurants.

The best restaurants in the world are difficult to come by. People book reservations months and even years in advance. So you’ll have a lot of foxy bingo games to play before you get to go. That shouldn’t put you off going to at least one though. For the experience.

Do something that absolutely terrifies you

We all have enormous fears. Far from letting them rule us though, we should go out of our way to face that fear. You could jump out of a plane, hold a small snake, spend a day in the dark, volunteer in a hospital – whatever scares you the most in the world. It’ll make you feel like you conquered that fear, and lived life to the fullest. Even if only for a moment.

Learn another language fluently

The older you get the harder it is to learn a new language. And yet it’s as we get older we start to wish we could. It’s never too late. Take the most common language you could learn, or perhaps one of the less common, so you feel unique in your ability. Italian perhaps?

Watch a sunset and sunrise

We get so busy with our everyday lives, that we forget to stop and appreciate the little things in life. For example, the setting and rising of the sun every morning and evening. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, you could be on a beach in Greece, or sitting on a hill down the road from your house, take a loved one with you, and simply observe.

    I have my own list of these I will deal with one a day for each day until i have covered all of them.

    1- visit one of the seven wonders of the world- the TAJ Mahal

    I first visited the Taj Mahal in Lewisham. I had an a loo chat starter, a chicken chilli balti massala and a garlic nan. I then had a mango lasso, 8 bottles of cobra and a complimentary ‘irish coffee’. I even got a doggie bag. It was good but I have had better and it was certainly not one of the best restaurants in the world. In fact my favourite indian ones are

    ‘Tikka chance on me’ in greenwich
    ‘Tears on my pilau’ down ham
    ‘Mumbai me a curry please’ in ladywell
    ‘The backward third world begging dump hovel’ in peckham
    ‘Child amputees and the injustice of the caste system’ in Bromley.

    Lovely places all of them.
