  1. 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!

  2. 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. 🙂


  3. 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!! ❤

    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.
