List it Tuesday - been there, done that!

For this week's List It Tuesday, Nicole (from Three By Sea) suggested a topic to Aimee: "been there, done that".  Aimee called it a bucket list in reverse.

 Maybe I'm a little dense, but I never heard of a "Bucket List" until the movie with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman.  I've never wanted to do much more than support myself, travel and own a house.  Well, I have my house; just yesterday, I was able to refinance the property, taking a year off the loan and lower my mortgage payment!


Traveling?  I've traveled with my family when I was young -  in the U.S. exploring historic sites and national parks, and sailing on the east coast.  When I was a college student, I left the east and went to school in California.  In the past few years, my family went on "reunions" to the Virgin Islands, Ireland and Italy.  I love traveling with my family and want to do more.

Here's some photos of my travels:

The family sailing in the British Virgin Islands, in memory of Dad.

On the Dingle Peninsula, Ireland.  Yes, those are sheep.  Everywhere!

Greater Blasket Island, the farthest west portion in Ireland.

When by nephew graduated, we accompanied him and my brother to Italy.  Here's Venice!

Cortona, in the Hill Country.
It was one of my favorite cities that we visited in Italy.  

See more "been there, done that" at List It Tuesday!

What a great idea! I love the concept of counting what you've already done- it makes you feel so much more accomplished;)

Ireland is so beautiful the smell in the air must have been sweet with grass and sea.
