    saw this on another forum and i thought it was pretty cool.

    1) write a book just like everyone else
    2) travel to as many countries as possible, but definitely south africa, russia, and antarctica(does this count as a country?)
    3) skydive/bungee jump
    4) learn german
    5) learn to sail

    hrmm, thats all i can think of off the top of my head.

    ooOoooo simple ones for me

    1) find a girl whom i really love, and marry her
    2) have some kids
    3) have a nice job in my choosen field of design, hopefully in the movie industry
    4) grow old

    sure i wouldn't mind doing some exciting stuff, but they are along the way as bonus'.

  3. argh - so much. I want to
    *fall in love, and live a bit more.

    *travel everywhere - especially Ireland, the whole of Europe, a road trip across America...

    *actually, to have a working holiday in the UK, hopefully Ireland and/or do a semester of my degree there

    * Get my degree, hopefully extend it to a masters

    * Become a really good, respected journalist, maybe one day an editor. I want to be a success; i'm not sure about the field though. Journalism looks good, as does advertising. Film and TV would be great too.

    * Find a nice guy (that i adore) to marry and be happy with for the rest of my life (ah, so unoriginal, but what the hell)

    *Settle down in Nelson with an old rambling wooden house that's grey and white and covered with roses, with a huge garden (including a vegetable garden) and a sea view.

    *Have some kiddies, or adopt them.

    *die old and happy, able to look back and have wonderful memories.

    ahhh...cheese it up. goody.

    well first off i am gonna do a road trip around the US, like a proper "drive it yourself" road trip. with my sister probably. but that is after we sail around some pacific island somewhere, and after we go to china. (we have already done the whole of AUS, and the entire South Island, so i have no doutb we will do the rest)

    and i guess i will be your neighbour in nelson. all i want is a nice portch to sit on and enjoy stuff. HATE the city.

    anyway have fun with your dreams they are awsome

    roadtrip around the US would be cool as long as you go around the border of the seas/canada and mexico and not the middle...its boring there! There is so much of the US i havent seen and want to see...

    whats nelson? a coastal city?

    and yeah, finding a nice girl and a nice house on the lake go without saying, hehe

    1) I have written a book. But I want to write another one that a traditional publisher will publish
    2) Having lived in the US, Canda and scotland all I want to do is move home to New Zealand, so I need a job there.
    3) Go blackwater rafting in a glow worm cave -- I am not into the really adventurous stuff, but this looks cool. Albino eels, cave wetas, etc.
    4) learn Maori
    5) learn to horse ride.

    is there a difference between blackwater rafting and whitewater rafting?
  9. ahah, yeah, go nelson ( top of the south Island, very pretty, laid back styles. It has gorgeous beaches, some great tramping places nearby and is just an awesome place with great weather- it's at the top of the South Island and is quite sunny. Go here for more (mega cheese, touristy) info if ya want it)

    iI also really want to learn Maori...it's very beautiful.

    And as for roading around the USA - the middle bits might be dull, but they are sooo different from here - being far from the sea would just be crazy. I ant to go just to see the diffrerence.
    I also am dying to go to Italy, Greece and Spain....ahhh the architecture :)

    yeah there are a lot of people in the US who havent seen the ocean ever...i loved italy and greece.want to see spain sometime

    nelson looks really nice...the ocean looks spectacular down there :)
  11. yeah, it's just a really nice city too - nearly all the shops in the main district have hanging baskets of flowers, there is a lot of sun - it's just nice . My friend from there is ever so Nelson proud, and I give him heaps of shit, but I do love the place. It will be a toss up between settling there or Welly I think, and i definitly want to retire there.

    I thought it was just taht blackwater rafting was calmer water - ie not white like it is in rough rivers.

    if it is done in caves, that sounds awesome
  17. Alltaken

    well it is calmer, but its also in caves :D

    black water rafting for obvious reasons is calmer because if you can't see anything rapids are a bit dangerous. but the definaition requirs it to be in caves.

    its done with inner tubes rather than a raft, because inner tubes can fit in a lot of the caves whereas rafts are to big. and its normally a bit of a glow-worm relax, sit on your bum type deal. (of course its more exciting than that, but to my knowledge its not that deadly (well not in the same way)
