1,000 Places

“The world is a book, and those who do not travel, read only a page.” – St. Augustine

1,000 Places to See Before You Die, huh? Well I better get busy. The subtitle of this book, gifted to me on my birthday, is appropriately dubbed “A Traveler’s Life List.”  The number is deceiving since there are actually quite a few experiences and/or eateries mixed in… which I actually like though, because who travels just to SEE sites?  There are some places or experiences listed in the book that I will surely not make my personal list, but since I want to see the world, this is a good inspiration.
