Travel Aspirations – 50 Places to See Before You Die

For those of you who haven’t come across the original BBC list of 50 places to see before you die, here it is. After this list came out, many others followed that described destinations or activities that are deemed to be worthy of special note. Of the places on the list I’ve seen 11 that I can remember for sure and possibly 1 or 2 more from my childhood that I can’t remember, so I’m not counting those. I’ll be adding Aukland, New Zealand in a few weeks and I hope to continue crossing places of this list. I’m actually living in one of the places on this list as well, Bangkok!

Living in Bangkok and being able to travel around Thailand is pretty amazing, but let’s not forget the rest of the world is out their waiting to be seen as well. May it bring you thoughts of the future experiences you can have if you look beyond the daily grind of life. Bangkokians, get out of Bangkok whenever you can!
