69 things to do before you die

Last night, I found myself cocooned in a the world’s heaviest sleeping bag housed in, of all things – an igloo. As I snuggled up to brave the freezing temperatures of the French Alps, my mind wondered what other absurd and unique experiences I have yet to experience. So I decided to make a wee list.

Everything in bold, I’ve done already and would highly recommend. The rest comprises of a bucket list that would leave a life of no regrets. Bear in mind, this is a Naughty Nomad list and not very warm and fuzzy…

    Nice list! Additions…

    Sleep on a 200 ft pyramid in Tikal Guatemala – watch the sunrise above the jungle.

    Collect all flags of the world – including Vatican.

    Cross the Sahara on a camel – bang a Tuareg princess.

    Take chick to paradise island – complete kamasutra.

    Take 4 chicks to paradise island – do the 4some.

    Boatride with Somali pirates – come back alive.

    Bang the girlfriend of a colombian drug lord – escape his henchmen.

    Get stoned on holy mushrooms with a shaman in Peru – see the light.

    Do a dinner date with cannibal chicks in Papua New Guinea – eat them for dessert.

    Join the French Foreign Legion. Do the 6 months of basic training in France, Djibouti and French Guyana. You get paid, get fit, travel, save money, learn French, bang chicks, blow up shit and get drunk with your comrades – then just AWOL and fuck off. Merci Beaucoup!

      Excellent! Haha!

    • Nescio February 4, 2014 at 2:14 pm #

      They don’t do mushrooms in Peru, but rather stuff like ayahuasca and San Pedro

    Upon capturing my first Flag at 20 years old, I knew where the Flagging path would take me: 25 Flags before Death or Marriage!

    Hey nice list… I think it is great to make lists like these to really outline what you want to do. tried dog in Korea and it was an interesting experience. The meat was very tender and in Korea many of the elders consider this dish to be a delicacy.

    Things I want to before I die (I’ll add more on my personal list later):

    1. Go to Mongolia- I heard it’s beautiful there and the women happen to be very good looking as well. It’s definitely off the beaten track, but I’d like to go… Something about checking out the countryside in camels sounds appealing to me.

    2. Check out the pyramids in Egypt- I definitely wanna see the pyramids just to check out the architecture alone.

    3. Try authentic Italian food in Sicily- I heard the food in Sicily is incredible… I would like to go there on a culinary tour. I know Sicilian girls also happen to be very attractive 😉

    4. Check out Tajikistan- I heard from a friend that the women there have Asian features with green eyes…

    5. Macchu Picchu- Last time I was in Peru, I did not get a chance to check out this great wonder. It’s definitely on my to do list. I heard it was the defining point of many backpackers’ trips in South America.


    • Naughty Nomad January 23, 2011 at 7:17 pm #

      You sold Tajikistan for me.. my mate going there this year in September I might be persuaded to join him..

  4. Latin Stylez January 24, 2011 at 3:20 pm #

    Sweet, if you make it there before I do could you do a write up on it? I’m curious about how it is there…

  5. Thomas March 3, 2011 at 1:49 pm #

    Things from my list:

    #16 – Sky Dive in a Kilt in Scotland
    #19 – Milk a cow
    #23 – Attend the Olympics
    #28 – Pimp Slap a Pimp
    #61 – See the Northern Lights (completed)

  6. Jason March 7, 2011 at 7:05 am #

    Sleep with a Septuagenarian and every single decade in between!

  7. Neil Skywalker June 15, 2011 at 1:38 am #

    How about my favorite but nearly impossible :
    A threesome with two sisters, i slept in the same bed with two teenage filipina sisters but no sex. I banged the older one before but couldnt convince them together.

    – I banged a beautiful Chile girl last week and gonna meet her single and younger sister in a different city in a few days. I’m gonna go for it even though i probably will ruin them for life.

  11. Henrik November 14, 2011 at 9:37 pm #

    Surprised at how bourgois this list starts off. I guess you joined a tour group to do all those “must-sees” more economically.

  12. Sinhalaya November 16, 2011 at 11:15 am #
