13 Places to Go Before I Die
You may have heard that the Travel Channel has a new series called 1000 places to go before you die. This may be a series for me on my blog for the next few weeks, as I have TONS of places I want to go. We'll have to see how many destinations I can dream up. I've been to a few of my dream places, like Sydney for New Years, Paris, Rome, Venice, Great Barrier Reef, etc. So these are places I HAVEN'T visited yet. Have you been to any of them? Where do you want to stick a pin in the map?
  1. Galapagos Islands: Who wouldn't want to see all that wildlife that you can see nowhere else?
  2. Easter Island: I want to stare those statues right in their eyes.
  3. Stonehenge: I'm on track to do this one this summer, hopefully.
  4. London: Along with Stonehenge
  5. Auckland, New Zealand:
  6. The Taj Mahal
  7. Moscow, USSR
  8. St. Petersburg, USSR
  9. Edinburgh, Scotland
  10. Northern Ireland
  11. Fiji
  12. Tahiti
  13. Madrid, Spain

Janet said...

I've been to London, but not Stonehenge and Edinburgh, which I LOVED! Great list, I can see you visiting all those places :-)

Goofy Girl said...

Those places sound awesome!! I've never bend to any of them but I'd like to go as well!

Joan said...

Hello, Fellow traveler! There are so many places I want to go. You have listed a bunch of them.

My TT is also posted.

Renee said...

I've seen the ads for the show, but I haven't been to any of the places on your list. And I'm sure I haven't been to 99% of their list as I've only barely been out of the US.

I'll just live vicariously through your travels, okay?

I've been to 3, 4, 6, 9 & 10. The Taj is crowded and busy at night, but empty and amazing at dawn. If you get a chance, book a room at the Hotel Sheela - it's just up the road from the gates and makes it easy to walk to the ticket booth for the 6am opening.

kailani said...

I can't believe there are places that you haven't been to yet!

Darla said...

Those all sound great. I really think we ought to get to some more places in Europe while we're still here, but there's never enough time and money, darnit. At least we're doing a little better at seeing some of Germany.

A friend and I have been talking for a couple of years about doing a road trip of the US. Crossing my fingers that we actually DO it.

Robin said...

I love to travel. Australasia (all of them!) is very high on my "someday" list!

We're hoping to finally get to Ireland in November.

mar said...

Thanks, Carmen, for your sweet comment :)
Your list sounds great! except for I think you got nr 13 wrong, my friend: it should read Barcelona, Spain to visit me!

Dragonheart said...

Those would all be great places to visit! :) My humans haven't been to any of those places, but hope to get to the UK this summer or next.

Anonymous said...

Great list! I haven't been to any of those places. I think the
Galapagos Islands would be so cool!

Happy TT!

NOLADawn said...

I've never been anywhere, so they all sound good.
My TT is up and you're in it! :)

colleen said...

Only London on that list. Did you go to Newgrange when you were in Ireland? It's over 3000 BC years old.
I hope you'll take us on a new journey soon.

Candy Minx said...

All of those places sound amazing.

I think you've already been to many places I'd like to go to Carmen, I think you've been to Florence right?

I'd like to go to Egypt, Florence, South America and Antartica and Galapagos Islands.

Here's my TT list:

FrogLegs said...

#5 & #11 we have in common. :) I love that you travel so much-- you remind me of my bestest pal for that reason!!

Babystepper said...

Oh man, this list would be long for me, too.

I like you ideas.

Bone said...

Ooo yes, London. I wanna go!

When I'm playing dominoes--which isn't that often, but still--at some point I'll stack one on top of two standing vertically and say, "Stonehenge."

It got a laugh... like once.

Amanda Young said...

Ireland is definitely on my must see list. *g*

Katherine said...

Holy crap, I can't believe I've actually been to 2 places you want to go. It's a miracle with all the wonderful traveling you do. (London and Edinburgh) I'd really like to go to Costa Rica before it's completely commercialized. Wait, isn't there a bunch of doodoo all over the Galapagos Islands?

Becky, Mom, Mommy, Hey you, said...

I just got back from London on Saturday..nice but EXPENSIVE..if you have a chance go see 'Wicked'

KarenW said...

Cancun, Mexico

Jenny Ryan said...

Madrid is awesome! I love Spain.I hope you get to go. :)

Hootin'Anni said...

Ohhhhhhhh, the mystery and love behind the building of the Taj Mahal would draw me there too.

Sorry I've not been visiting as often as I wish to, but health has slowed me down the last few days.

Hope this little comment finds you well and good.

Tilly Greene said...

Seen a few of those and say they are all worthwhile...if only we could all take a year out and travel the world.

Sparky Duck said...

great list

I wanna do Stonehenge and London myself someday. Have to do Italy first

Nancy said...

I want to go to all those places as well. I never go anywhere, unless Vermont counts.

I really want to go to New Zealand.

julia said...

I've got #3 Stonehenge, #4 London and #9 Edinburgh very high on my travel wish list. Also #8 St. Petersburg, as I long to see the Kirov Ballet in their home venue.

YellowRose said...

I am dying to see Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Stonehedge of course, is on my list too! I also want to see Paris, the Swiss Alps, Mount Fuji are also on my list. Now that my kids are grown, we plan on doing more traveling!!!
