You might have the only list on here that Ive fully completed
I only put things that I can actually see myself getting done, so it makes sense, don't see a point of having an impossible list.

Thats how it should be. I remember once on an Ethiopian Air flight and we passed Kilminjaro, and my seatmate, a touch shy of 400 pounds tells me its on his bucket list to climb Kilmnjaro. Lol

Some of the weird items on my bucket list, not sure which other ones deserve to make it.
1. LYR-Svalbard Airport, Longyear, north most airport in the world.
2. Hawaii.
3. Fly the upper deck of a 747 (donno why this has such an appeal to me)
4. BOB/MLE.
5. Shower on a plane.
6. Take a flight shorter than 19 minutes airtime (current shortest)
7. Northern lights.

Complete:
Beat SF to Israel.
Completed some typical bucket list style things:
Skiing in the French Alps.
Snowmobiling in the French Alps.
Paragliding.
Reached an altitude of 2100m on the ground (should have went higher :(,(a mere 350m lower than the cruising altitude of the lowest flight I've taken)

I believe there is talk of a FS and/or Aman in Croatia,  may be worth waiting.

I dunno, if he's not gonna be all over DansDeals insta and everyone telling him how cool he is to be kayaking with Dan in Antarctica, it's probably not worth it ;)

A few updates to my list:

In no particular order,

1 - Israel (never been there yet!)
2 - New Zealand
3 - Kyrgyzstan
4 - Kenya/Tanzania/Botswana Safari
5 - Kamchatka Peninsula
6 - Bora Bora Fernando de Noronha / Lenšˇis Maranhenses
7 - Socotra, Yemen
8 - Patagonia
9 - Great Barrier Reef Ice Cliffs of Austfonna
10 - Palau

Also: Flying WRY-PPW, the shortest scheduled commercial flight in the world at all of 47 seconds.

And Ni'ihau, Molokai, and Kahoolawe would round out my Hawaiian island collection nicely.
