Thursday Thirteen #20

Thirteen Things about Michael

13 Most Exotic Things I Have Done

1. Horseback riding on the beach south of Cancun, Mexico.

2. Waverunner riding and snorkling in Cancun, Mexico.

3. Climbing Dunn's River Falls near Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

4. Parasailing off Castaway Cay in the Bahamas.

5. Ropes course in the NC mountains with Younglife.

6. Teathered hot air balloon and ropes course in NY mountains with Younglife.

7. Whitewaer rafting on the Ocoee River in Tennessee.

8. Completing the Peachtree Road Race 7 times (10 kilometers on July 4th in Atlanta).

9. Eating fish and chips bought from a street vendor in Stratford-on-Avon, England.

10. Driving to Key West from Orlando, twice on my own and once with a girlfriend and her roomie who was moving there for the summer.

11. As a child, 6 or 7 years old, going to see Niagara Falls (from both sides).

12. Visiting a clothing-optional beach in Florida. I had a rough idea where it was but didn't go looking for it specifically. Let me simply say 95% of the people were over age 50 and of those about 75% were male. Ewww.

13. Climbing Stone Mountain in Georgia. I did it seveal times while a teen and again in 2005 as part of a Chick-fil-a managers retreat.

Wooo Hooo. How exotic, I can't recall doing anything like these - except Stone Mountain. Great list and have a Happy Thursday.

Bubba's Sis said...

Wow! Cool stuff!

Lori said...

Mercy's Maid said...

It sounds like you've had some really fun adventures! I've never been horseback riding, but horseback riding on a beach sounds really peaceful and relaxing.

Cindy Swanson said...

Great idea for a list...I'd steal it except for the fact that I haven't done anything exotic! :)

YellowRose said...

Very cool list! I snorkeled in Cozumel and stood on a ruin in the middle of the ocean!! That was pretty awesome!

Happy TT!

JAM said...

Great set of adventures Michael. I didn't know that street vendor fish and chips is questionable enough to be listed as an adventure.

I love Stone Mountain. When we lived in Powder Springs, we took our daughters over there many times. Before it started costing an arm and a leg to get in.

Tink said...

Quite some exotic things! I'd love to do a lot of those!
My TT shares 13 things about the blue moon.

Wow, what a list! I too have been to Mexico, but did none of those things. I did get to visit the Mayan Ruins though, and they were pretty amazing. I have also white water rafted the Ocoee while in college. The KD's from Union would go every year during greek week...good times:-)
