☆ 28 Places to See Before You Die ☆

29/06/2009

I found this list in the Smithsonian magazine, and Love it.. well, you can see here in the blog that I love all the kinds of lists..😀

“Exhibit A is the recent popularity of “life lists”—itineraries of things to do and places to go before taking the ultimate trip to the Great Beyond. Bookstores brim with titles such as 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, 1001 Paintings You Must See Before You Die and—for the high-minded—Fifty Places to Go Birding Before You Die. A cottage industry of Web sites has also popped up, enabling life list enthusiasts to exchange ideas ranging from learning Japanese to getting a tattoo. Now even Hollywood has gotten into the act, with the release this month of the film The Bucket List, in which two cancer patients, played by Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, break out of their medical ward and embark on a life list road trip that includes dining on expensive caviar and gambling in Monte Carlo.

Life list experts (yes, there are such beings) advise people not to set themselves up for disappointment by trying to accomplish too much. (When’s the last time you completed your daily to-do list?) With the entire world to choose from, the maxim “so much to do, so little time” takes on added meaning.

(…)

Whether you visit only a couple of these destinations or all 28, your life will be enriched by the experience. And if along the way you want to gorge on caviar or get a tattoo, that’s entirely up to you.”

I stay so happy to see that I went in some of the magical places of the list, but of course, I want to go in others there..

So I hope that You enjoy the list so much then me..
