  • Living abroad for one year

    yes, this I really would like to do when I'm young again.

  • Making the world a better place

    yes this would be nice...
    if the people stop waisting resources, start with healthy nutrition instead of always just eat meat and fast food. Enjoy to prepare food and enjoy to eat it instead of just consume. This I think would help already to make the people better and also the world to a better place.
