My (not so) grown up Christmas list

Dear Santa,

How are you? I guess you will be excited for your next trip around the globe.. Only few days left! It is going to be the most wonderful night of the year! (Do you fly in business class this time?!) I hope all your reindeers are doing well (especially Rudolph).

I have been very nice this year. Really, really nice. It was a very long year and very challenging. Bit sad tough, but I learned a lot and I am doing my best for 2017. Good things I have done: I stopped buying material stuff (only exceptions are books, I canโ€™t help that!), I cared more about others than me (no always a good idea), I helped my mum as much as I could, and tried to be a good friend. So, please be generous with me this Christmas, I really deserve nice gifts.
Yes Santa, I am still single, and yes, my life is still a messโ€ฆ
No Santa, I donโ€™t want a new boyfriend, and no, not even a magic hoover to clean my life up.
Oh yes Santa, of course I still believe in you! (what a funny question!)
I believe in you, in love and friendship. And unicorns. I am a dreamer, you know.

I understand you start to be old boy, so I wanna make your job as easiest as possible. Therefore, as last year, here I copied the list of the places I really wanna see and things I really wanna do once in my lifetime, so you have plenty of choices. Any of these will work. Thank you.

To help you, I have updated it and ticked โœ” the gifts you already broguht me during these years, so you cannot wrong. Ah, I was ย forget! Thank you for the things you brought me last year… I loved them! Those places were really stunning Santa, you should have come, too! And thank you for having brought new friends to travel with. They were the best gift.
