3 must visit places before you die!!
My wife and I got the book 1000 places to see before you die--way too many for our list. We started listing 3-5 places that we must see before we get"toooo olddd" What would your list look like?

As of today (& these are all places I have not been to yet) in no particular order - Iceland, Cuba & Nova Scotia. I also consider these reasonable, & doable.

rphsims1 May 1st, 2007 03:46 PM

Actually,Nova Scotia was on my list. I also had Ireland, and New England states in Leaf season--always wanted to see the leaves-haven't done it-but are going this year

Before I die I would love to see:
Greece (Delphi)
Norway's fjords
the Aurora Borealis from somewhere waaaaay up north!

cmcfong--you listed "Norway's fjords",when I was a hippie several years ago, I took a trip to Stavanger,Norway for 2 week trip--stayed 8 weeks--that whole area is amazing and really did not want to come back after 8 weeks, but marriage was waiting for me.

Faina, I have to laugh: that's what my dh keeps saying. He's serious.

lunabug May 1st, 2007 06:31 PM

Three places I've been
Maui - the winery
San Francisco - all of it
The top of a mountain in the Rockies

Before I die I want to go to
San Francisco again - I mean that!

No one saying Las Vegas?
