my Bucketlist

 

“Gelukkig zijn is een onderweg zijn.” Fair is fair. This Dutch one-liner is stolen from my all-time favorite TV program “Buiten de zone“. There is something of truth in it. Therefore, this list. A list full of things I still want to do in my life. A man can have some ambitious things in life, not?

It’s all the fault of Mom and Dad

Daddy’s rather … how shall I write this, a busy bee with anything and everything.
And our mom, our mom who tinkers things off. Our ma has been to the fashion academy and passed her insatiable hunger to me I guess. She keeps on designing hats, making handbags in leather, making her own clothes, … it probably started when she knitted my sweaters, back in the days .. you know, those stinging wool sweaters … damn.

Our dad … having an idea, he just goes for it. Few examples: he build his own oscilloscope when he was 18, he tailor-made a tripod for his telescope as he found out that other tripods weren’t good enough. His “I can do that too or even better” mentality … G, Thanks Dad! ;-)

Alright … I have quite a few things that I want to get done / do in my life.

A list which will undoubtedly continue to grow.
