I was gifted with the book 1000 Places to See Before You Die a few years ago, and I flipped through it and made a list of the places that I had already been, just to see if I was on track with the executive opinion of the authors.
I have now updated it with my 2009 travels, adding 4 places in Thailand, 2 in Germany, one in Mexico and one in the US. What US experience did I get this year that made the cut? Cheyenne Frontier Days (lucky guess, you!).
I'm at 96 places done so far. Not too bad for not trying.
