I'm a fan of lists. While in China, I spent on average 6 hours a week in trains (fast, slow, double-decker) and sometimes up to even 30 to 40. I loved that method of transportation and the downtime for writing in my journal, sleeping, and reading. One of the first lists I completed was my "100 things to do before I die" list. Some of them truly might take a lifetime, and others I could go do this weekend. Either way, it kept me entertained for a few hours.

Let me know if you've done any of these.
