One or two in there I wouldn't mind ticking off some day, but a lot that I'm fairly content not to have done. Shame about Hawaii being mentioned by name - I've been to Fiji and the Cook Islands in the South Pacific but they just had to go and say Hawaii didn't they? lol

Check out Sue's lovely blog to see her own "done thats" and of course to see what her wonderful blog candy consists of.
