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.

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.
