So here’s my first entry of 2011. It’d better treat me well (or else, you hear that 2011?).
On Weds I turn 26. This is probably quite old. Here’s some stuff I’d like to do before I’m 30.
1) Start a PhD
2) Cross the equator More international adventuring needed
3) Visit all the countries in Europe (geographic Europe, not the EU). I might as well get the full set. I have left to visit: Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, Belarus, Poland, Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Montenegro, Kosovo,, Albania, Serbia, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Liechenstein, San Marino, Malta and Slovakia. Mostly all in eastern or south-eastern Europe. I’ve technically been to Luxembourg, but only to a service station. I went to Yugoslavia in the communist days, but I’ve counted that as Croatia, cos that’s where we went.
4) Learn decent Russian. I know the letters and some basics, but I’d like to know more.
5) Get over stupid stage fright, fear of crowds, fear of heights.
