Okay, I am neither Jack Nicholson for Morgan Freeman and I don't have a note from a doctor saying my time on earth is coming to an end anytime soon.

I have done a lot in the last 17 years that I've been involved with the wonderful world of chocolate - traveled to about a dozen countries (not nearly enough), met a lot of people (but not all of them), ate A LOT of chocolate (some bad, but most good). And every time I turn around, there's some new place or person to visit and some new chocolate to try.

I definitely want to visit Bali, never been there, and I have always loved the chocolate made from the beans that come from Java, Surabaya, and elsewhere in the region. I have some good friends there and know a top pastry chef at a top hotel so I know I can eat and sleep well in addition to roughing it in the countryside.

But what about you? What's on your Chocolate Bucket (not Charlie Bucket) List?

I'd like to try the fruit of a cocao pod -- the white squishy stuff.

1) Savour the Salon du Chocolat in Paris

2) Visit a cocoa plantation

3) Expose the psychopathic nature of the Multinational Chocolate Corporations.

Think that Chocolate Museum in Peru is a good excuse to finally see Machu Pichu as well.

Volunteer to work in a cocoa plantation. Being part of the tree to bar process. And of course, eating the white squishy stuff.
