Read a copy of Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
Jeffrey Eugenides writes the single boldest and best novel I have ever read. A complete page turner, this book tells the story of greek immigrants with an unusual twist.
Experience the Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc-Cave
The oldest piece of art known to man, this cave in France dates back some 36,000 years and is reopening to tourists in 2015.
Visit the Union Church of Pocantico Hills and experience the stained-glass windows by Marc Chagall
The design for the windows was his last work of art before his death in 1954. This Church is hidden in Tarrytown, NY and is an aesthetic experience unlike any other.
Drive up and down Mulholland Drive
Beautiful views and amazing homes make this road a phenomenal way to experience LA. It’s only two lanes, however, on some of the narrowest steepest hills…Where a diaper.
See a painting by Frida Kahlo
She is the single most expressive artist. Her art is truly from the soul.
Drink and be merry...with a Malbec
Looking for a new wine to bring to the dinner party? A Malbec is the way to go. Even people who hate red wine will find it to be amazing. The great part about it is that the wine usually cost somewhere between $10.00 and $15.00 a bottle, but comes off as a more expensive wine. It originally was produced in France and is now predominanlty produced in Argentina (when buying a bottle, make sure you get a bottle from Argentina). Once you try a sip of this wine, you'll be buying it by the cases.
Gorge at Churrascaria Plataforma
If I had to choose one last meal, it would be this mid-town NYC restaurant You'll need to starve yourself for several days before experiencing some of the finest meats. Top it off with and an amazing salad bar (which has everything from salad, to pastas, and sushi) and you've got a phenomenal experience.
Get a massage…and not just from me.
It amazes me how many people haven’t experienced the benefits of massage. From breaking apart of internal scar tissue to decreased anxiety and increased blood flow, massage has more benefits than most people think.
Cage Dive with The Great White Sharks, or at least save them
Cage Diving with The Great White's is next on my bucket list...and I better do it soon. With only 3500 or so of these creatures left in our world's oceans, scientists estimate that this 100 million year old creature could face extinction as early as 2060.
