    Oh my goodness! This is an incredible list! I plan on travelling when I’m retired and I’ve found so many places I want to go from people sharing their vacations on the blogoshpere. Thanks for sharing your list! I’ve got more good ideas!

    I am never sure about these lists. How can anyone pick 20?

    I, unfortunately, have not visited one of the places on your list, but your list is AMAZING! We are heading to Arizona this winter, so hopefully we will swing through the Grand Canyon. 🙂

    I haven’t done any! My vision board for the new year should include these so I can make at least one happen.

    Deary me. I’ve only been to four on that list. It’s a shame they didn’t pick anything from Japan. I could have a top 20 list just in Japan!! <3

    I would like to visit quite a few of those places, but I hate the idea of just ticking things off a list. I often like the smaller, less famous sights because there are often less tourists and more real culture. I like seeing how people really live.

  6. So many amazing places on that list! Imagine seeing them all. I think I only tick off 3 of these 😱 need to get my butt on a plane!

  7. Wow. I only got to 8 of them so far. Looks like I better get back to work 😉

  8. Jennifer says:

    Only one place on that list, the Grand Canyon. Within the top 50, I can only include Havana, Cuba. Guess I’ve got to up the travel goals!

  9. The only one I’ve got is the Galapagos Islands! They DEFINITELY deserve their spot on this list! I would love to be able to afford to go to all 20 of these! Maybe one day! 🙂
