Ticked off a couple of things and replaced with others. Changes in bold.

In no particular order,

1 - Israel (up to canceled trip #4 now ::))
2 - New Zealand
3 - Kyrgyzstan
4 - Deadvlei, Namibia
5 - Kamchatka Peninsula
6 - Erta Ale, Ethiopia
7 - Socotra, Yemen
8 - Patagonia, Chile
9 - Ice Cliffs of Austfonna, Svalbard
10 - Palau

Other things high up on the to do list are Guatemalan volcanos, Siberia in the winter, Cabo Verde, Galapagos, Greenland, Mongolia, Hokkaido, Madagascar, Angel Falls, and a good nap.

Alaska Done!
Hawaii Done!
Iceland Done!
Cuba Done!
Norway Done!
Antarctica Done!
Kenya/Tanzania/Botswana Safari Done!
Lenis Maranhenses Done!

And IIRC it was @moish who put a damper in my quest by telling me that crossing into Taba doesn't count as Africa  >:(

But if all goes well, will finally join the club this month  :D

He'd be correct. The Suez Canal is generally recognized to be the continental boundary.

But if all goes well, will finally join the club this month  :D

If ishtu k'gufo counts, my wife is part of the 7 continents club. If only I could get her to join the far more exclusive DDF club...

Not that Israel is "done", but now that I've been there (albeit for a short trip) it doesn't really fit into this list anymore.

I also removed the Ice Cliffs of Austfonna, Patagonia, and New Zealand. I still very much want to go there, but they're not top 10 at the moment.

Updated, in no particular order,

1 - South Georgia
2 - Great Barrier Reef
3 - Kyrgyzstan
4 - Deadvlei/Skeleton Coast, Namibia
5 - Kamchatka Peninsula
6 - Erta Ale, Ethiopia
7 - Socotra, Yemen
8 - Komodo National Park
9 - Gabon
10 - Palau

Other things high up on the to do list are Guatemalan volcanos, Siberia in the winter, Cabo Verde, Galapagos, Greenland, Mongolia, Hokkaido, Madagascar, Angel Falls, and a good nap.

Alaska Done!
Hawaii Done!
Iceland Done!
Cuba Done!
Norway Done!
Antarctica Done!
Kenya/Tanzania/Botswana Safari Done!
Lenis Maranhenses Done!
Israel "Done"!

Problem is I don't want to go anywhere, really. I'm a couch potato. But really the problem is I might have to go somewhere else due to rising rent.
The definition of bucket list doesn't seem to be trips, though the USAGE certainly is. So sorry if this offends you guys. These are all on my front burner, though (if I haven't gotten through them), but in no particular order.

1. Write a sefer that helps people grow
2. Write another one
3. Compose a heartzige song and get it to a mainstream artist
4. Finish shas
5. Get the standard set of semichas: Shabbos, Niddah, IVH + bonus berachos
6. Get my kids married with actual apartments
7. Launch a website with an index of laptops under $500, filterable by upgradeability, battery life based on an actual reviewer, real weight, build material/quality, etc...
8. Make aliyah (RYB said to do it)
9. Get enough people to watch the neighborhood security cameras so that I only need to do it five times a year
10. Okay, this needs the lottery, but: take my family to see my grandmother in San Marcos, CA so she can get some nachas. (Estimated current cost: $7000 not including travel expenses.)
