Bucket List - Swim with Sharks 

https://tabulaa.com/vitae/swim_with_sharks

Sharks are a long-bodied, chiefly marine fish, with a cartilaginous skeleton, a prominent dorsal fin, and toothlike scales. Most sharks are predatory, although the largest kinds feed on plankton.  Most other fish are covered in smooth, flat scales. A shark is covered in sharp, toothlike scales called denticles.

Hammerhead sharks are nomadic, travel from Florida coasts to polar regions and adapt to different temperatures through aquatic globetrotting.  Different sharks have their babies in different ways. Some lay egg cases. Others grow the pups inside of them and give birth to live young. Depending on the species, a shark may give birth to one or to dozens of pups and the mother shark does not stay around to take care of it.

Bucket List - Wakeboarding

https://tabulaa.com/vitae/wakeboard

Wakeboarding is the sport of riding on a short, wide board resembling a surfboard and performing acrobatic maneuvers while being towed behind a motorboat.  The term “wakeboarding” was coined by Paul Fraser (Vancouver, Canada), his brother Murray, and a pro snowboarder they sponsored.

The wakeboarder is frequently towed by a motorboat. The wakeboarder can also be towed by other means such as closed-course cables, PWCs, trucks or cars, winches, and ATVs.  Wakeboarding was derived from the mix of snowboarding, surfing, and water skiing routines.

Bucket List - Hold a Wombat

https://tabulaa.com/vitae/hold_a_wombat

WOMBAT, common name for three species of burrowing MARSUPIAL. Wombats have long claws that are adapted for digging, and they live in burrows, from which they emerge at night to feed on grasses and other plants.

The wombat lives in hilly forest country and it likes to burrow underground. A wombat burrow can be as long as 20 metres. Wombats quickly dig complicated tunnels with their strong legs and sharp claws, and then they push loosened soil away with their hind feet. Did you know that a wombat likes to live alone?

Young are usually born September to December and spend the next six to nine months in the pouch. Sexual maturity occurs at about 3 years of age. Hairy-nosed Wombats require a minimum of three good seasons to increase their population. In arid areas this is not common, so it pays to be long lived (and patient) to make the most of the good times when they occur.

The entrance to the female Wombat’s pouch faces backwards. This is to prevent dirt from entering it when it is burrowing.

Life Goal - See an Active Volcano

https://tabulaa.com/vitae/see_an_active_volcano

A volcano is a mountain or hill, typically conical, having a crater or vent through which lava, rock fragments, hot vapor, and gas are being or have been erupted from the earth’s crust.

Volcanic lightning occurs mostly within the cloud of ash during an eruption, and is created by the friction of the ash rushing to the surface. Roughly 200 accounts of this lightning have been witnessed live.

The danger area around a volcano covers about a 20-mile radius.

More than 80% of the earth’s surface is volcanic in origin. The sea floor and some mountains were formed by countless volcanic eruptions. Gaseous emissions from volcano formed the earth’s atmosphere.

Life Goal - Pyramid of Giza  -  https://tabulaa.com/vitae/see_the_great_pyramid_of_giza

The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis bordering what is now El Giza, Egypt. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact.

The Great Pyramid is a true masterpiece and has rightly earned the title of a “Wonder”. It was built with such precision that our current technology cannot replicate it. There are so many interesting facts about this Pyramid that it baffles archaeologists, scientists, astronomers and tourists.

The pyramid is estimated to have around 2,300,000 stone blocks that weigh from 2 to 30 tons each and there are even some blocks that weigh over 50 tons. The Pyramid of Menkaure, the Pyramid of Khafre and the Great Pyramid of Khufu are precisely aligned with the Constellation of Orion. 

It was originally covered with casing stones made of highly polished limestone. These casing stones reflected the sun’s light and made the pyramid shine like a jewel. They are no longer present due to an earthquake in the 14th century that loosened many of them. It has been calculated that the original pyramid with its casing stones would act like gigantic mirrors and reflect light so powerful that it would be visible from the moon as a shining star on earth.

Spend the night sleeping in a strangers home, by making arrangements through a hospitality exchange and social media service.

​​Couchsurfing has been created by Casey Fenton – an American who set up a web portal that offers its users hospitality exchange (free couch to sleep on, showing around the place, etc.) and social networking services (helping each other with travel issues).

Couchsurfing is a great way of exploring places on a budget without spending a lot of money on accommodation. Moreover, you can meet amazing people who can look after you and show you around the city.

While constant bombardment of bad news from the media makes staying with complete strangers seem inherently dangerous, couchsurfing.com’s ingenious system makes sure that the bad hosts are weeded out.

Bucket List - Tour the Louvre
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/tour_the_louvre

The Louvre is an art museum that is a famous tourist attraction in Paris, France.

The Louvre, which is along the banks of the Seine River in Paris, is the world’s largest museum and one of the most well-known museums in the world. This magnificent structure, which has housed priceless art in France since 1793, is among Paris’ most popular tourist attractions.

In 1190, Parisians were concerned about the potential of invasion of their city from the north, as they feared the Vikings would cross the sea from Scandinavia and raid Paris. The Louvre was built as a fortress to protect against these possible raids at the order of King Phillipe-Auguste. 

While the Louvre has some of the most-famous pieces of art in existence in its permanent collection, none is more famous than the Leonardo da Vinci painting known as “Mona Lisa.”
