Hey!!! I've been to Browerville, Mn before. I hadn't realized it to be a "Must see before you die" destination. Now I'll have to go back and take another look. ;^)

In addition to Alaska and Australia, Iguazú Falls, Argentina <http://www.iguazuargentina.com/>. This place is truly one of the natural wonders of the world!

For this board, maybe 10 would be a better number ?? Places I've been - Paris, Montserrat, NOLA. All of these I will probably revisit in the next year. However, I hope I get to see 'my' NOLA again in my lifetime.

Thank you SAnParis... 10 is much better number. Three was making me panic!
rphsims1, what were you thinking!

Australia
China
Japan
Thailand
Reunion
Tristan da Cunha
Peru and Argentina
Galapagas Is
Easter Is
Egypt

These are all places that I've never been to... yes, I know Peru and Argentina are 2 separate countries but I'd combine them on one trip.

Maybe 1000 places to see before you die isn't too many after all!

lisa - I had to take out the Grand Canyon in order to get Tuscany in.
Three is so very hard to limit myself to.

It is so hard to name 3-5 at this point, since there are so many I want to see. I look at it this way, there are lots of places I want to see, but which ones would I regret most not seeing if something happened to keep me from traveling any longer?

UK - London especially

Paris (return trip) - A place I must share with my children

Grand Canyon - Again with my children

Fenway Park - I have been a big Sox fan my whole life, but somehow have never made it Boston. I have seen them play in other cities.

Australia

That was tough!!

Ok, I have to ask whats in Browerville, MN, that would include it in your list of 3. My List is changing after reading some of your list. The reason in the list is I am making a list of 3 places in US, and 3 places not in US. I retire in 6 months and the wife and I are going to work thru the list. Thanks for all of the ideas,again what's in Browerville, MN
