100 Things to do before I die…

A friend of mine, Alistaire, who I used to work with in Halfords came back from a holiday once saying how he had been able to strike another thing off his 100 things to do before he dies list. He’d been swimming with Dolphins in some exotic part of the world. I figured I needed to get one of those lists for myself. After all, without ambitions…
