Russ’ Bucket List

Below is a list, in no particular order, of cool places that I would love to visit someday.  This is an ever-expanding, constantly changing list of destinations, so in a year this may be radically different.  But here is what I have for the moment:
1. Watch the Dream Mile at the Bislett Games track meet in Oslo, Norway
2. Tour the ancient ruins in Athens
