New Bucket List

The Huffington Post recently published an article – The Top 50 Cities to See in Your Lifetime – based on a survey of travelers from a travel website.  Here is the list, without the pretty pictures published on Huffington Post.

I’ve already been to the cities in bold.  2 of them several times – London and Paris.

  1. Venice, Italy
  2. Seville, Spain
  3. NYC, (NY) USA
  4. Lhasa, China
  5. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  6. London, England
  7. Marrakech, Morocco
  8. Petra, Jordan
  9. Rome, Italy
  10. Varanasi, India
  11. Florence, Italy
  12. Havana, Cuba
  13. Kyoto, Japan
  14. Jerusalem, Israel
  15. Paris, France
  16. Beijing, China
  17. Lalibela, Ethiopia
  18. Granada, Spain
  19. Athens, Greece
  20. Bagan, Myanmar
  21. Kathmandu, Nepal
  22. Vatican City
  23. Lisbon, Portugal
  24. Tokyo, Japan
  25. Istanbul, Turkey
  26. Hoi An, Vietnam
  27. Amsterdam, Netherlands
  28. Luxor, Egypt
  29. Berlin, Germany
  30. Jaipur, India
  31. Lyon, France
  32. Oia, Greece
  33. Siem Reap, Cambodia
  34. Vienna, Austria
  35. Cusco, Peru
  36. Cartagena, Colombia
  37. Zanzibar, Tanzania
  38. Mexico City, Mexico
  39. Singapore
  40. Las Vegas, (NV) USA
  41. Samarkand, Uzbekistan
  42. Sydney, Australia
  43. San Francisco, (CA) USA
  44. Mont Saint Michel, France
  45. Dubrovnik, Croatia
  46. Bangkok, Thailand
  47. Buenos Aires, Argentina
  48. Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala
  49. Prague, Czech Republic
  50. Budapest, Hungary

I have been to 15, or 30%.  3 of the top 10, 7 of the top 20, and 11 of the top 30. As an American, I take pride that I’ve been to all 3 of the US cities on the list.

A good start, but I have some work to do. If I re-organize the list by general geographic region, it might help me to develop a plan to work on the list.

Europe (11 cities I haven’t been to yet)

Venice, Seville, Granada, Istanbul, Berlin, Lyon, Oia, Vienna, Dubrovnik, Prague, Budapest

The Americas (7 cities I haven’t visited)

Rio de Janeiro, Havana, Cusco, Cartagena, Mexico City, Buenos Aires, Antigua Guatemala

Asia (12 cities I  haven’t visited)

Lhasa, Petra, Varanasi, Jerusalem, Beijing, Bagan, Kathmandu, Hoi An, Jaipur, Siem Reap, Samarkand, Bangkok

Africa (4 cities I haven’t visited)

Marrakech, Lalibela, Luxor, Zanzibar

Last, but not least – Sydney

I am planning to visit Prague, Berlin and Budapest in 2015. Perhaps I can add a few more European cities to that trip.

Sydney is part of the 2016 travel plan.

Ok, one picture:
