Number 27 - See an Erupting Volcano

Climbing the final leg on foot, you feel a small rumble and then hear a tremendous roar as you climb, Yasur is greeting you. What a sight to behold.

Number 49 - See both Solar and Lunar eclipses

And while it was not total in Brisbane (83%), it was a strange thing watching it through the solar glasses seeing a massive slice of the sun missing.

Number 98 - Take part in a Demonstration

Remember, remember! The fifth of November. The Gunpowder treason and plot; I know of no reason why the Gunpowder treason should ever be forgot!

Number 11 - Storm Chase a Tornado*

Partial complete, but an amazing experience even as they were "Rain Wrapped". Huge epic storms with beautiful structure and powerful lightning.

Number 67 - Visit... The Grand Canyon

A lot of things that are "Must See" have a habit of being quite overrated, this is not one of those things. Truly epic in size and scale, the helicopter is a must.

The Arabian Desert, stretching 2,300,000 square km with sand dunes as far as the eye can see and temperature variance from 45+ during the day to single digits during the night. The second largest sub-tropical desert in the world and the one I wanted to go camping in.

Number 19b: Taste the "Top 10" Vodka's in the world

Completed 24 December 2015 - 23 April 2016.
10 Vodkas - 7 Countries.

Vodka has always been one of my "go-to" drinks, from the early days of mixing it with soft drink or orange juice through to nowadays when I'll drink it neat or on the rocks (or in the case of cheap Vodka, with ice and water). So I thought why not go full pretentious and import and taste the top Vodkas in the world.

Number 14b: Watch all of the James Bond movies

Completed 9-11 November 2015.
23 Movies - 3 Days, Duration: 48.25 Hours.

This is the first thing completed off my "Bonus Round" list, a list I decided to create where I could add new things I think of that might be fun or exciting without cluttering up my base list.

Number 92: Own an Original Work of Art

Completed 17 February 2015.
Think Tank, Issue 6 / Page 20 - Rahsan Ekedal.

This one started off in a very different way, I was originally looking at your normal types of original art, like paintings, photography and other design work and while there were some interesting ones, there wasn't anything that really grabbed me or worth the insane price tag that came along with it.
