  1. Hi Nicole, stumbled on your blog, and you are really really fit! Your goals make me feel I need to exercise much more :p But beyond fitness, it's really nice to read about your life and travel goals as well.

    Just completed a dream of mine - an iPhone app (adream) where people can share their dreams and goals in a fun way.

    Keep inspiring people, all the best in realizing items in your bucket list :)

    Best, Ray
