Hello, we're Claire & Phil

This is our 50 things before we're 50 list. Only we've not thought of 50 things yet. And we're not yet 40.

It's an online journal. A personal space. It is continuously being altered and updated. We even remove things we're not feeling anymore.

Overtime, you can click on the links of completed activities to find out more. 

We are very blessed - there's lots of things we have already done together; swimming with turtles in Barbados, Disney World with the children, Camels and dune buddy riding in Egypt, and there's lots we have done alone. Phil's traveled the world with the Royal Navy, and I've had some amazing holidays with my girlfriends - hello Miami! But this list is about us doing them together. 

We do however love to hear your comments, suggestions, recommendations and own experiences but no bad vibes please.
