20 Things I want to do in 2020

As I reflect on 2019 and the past decade, I also look to the future. What can I do that is going to create some stories? What can I do that will provide memorable experiences and make life the fun and the adventurous journey it is meant to be. I quickly threw together this list, and it is quite Beijing centric as I live here, but, takes into some of my travels as well. I’m a parent of four-year-old twin girls as well, so some of the aspects are parent related. So here is the list, put any further items in the comments section!
