50 places to visit in your lifetime, and NONE from the UK/Eire?


I declare the list fundamentally flawed.

(Venice is beautiful, by the way).

Agreed! I went to Edinburgh, London, Bath, Stonehenge and Avebury this summer, and it was beautiful!

I have never been across the puddle at all. I know, it's pathetic. I really want to, but there is the time and money issue.

If we manage to get over, we promise to impose upon your good will!

I was going to say the Europe is woefully under represented. It means I've only been to Barcelona on that list.

Ditto what they said

Where's this list from, anyway? The choice of destinations was a little odd, to say the least.

Re: Ditto what they said

I stole it from another LJ, of course. They are rather far flung and interesting, that's why I liked it.

Another list flaw

There's very few places on the list that are in Australia and Asia, and no where on it is in Japan. I would have thought Tokyo and Kyoto deserved to be on that list. Also how come Sydney made the list and Melbourne didn't? The Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge can only be so good. Besides we have better culture.

Re: Another list flaw

Another place I am desperate to visit. Not exactly a weekend trip, though....

While there are a lot of places I'd like to visit, I figure that if tashiro and I ever get enough money, we'll make a tour of Canada.

Blame Canada!


Ferrett and my memories are mostly impaired by the U-Haul breaking down in Saskatoon, but it is very pretty.

Sort of a lesser Alaska [g]

No clue. I stole it from someone else.
