Bucket list of places to visit

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Evil ... Thy name is Orville Redenbacher!!, Jun 6, 2012.

  1. I don't have a bucket list of things I want to do, per se. But I do I have a list of places to visit.
    Near the top is the American Cemetery at Normandy.
    I get teary-eyed every time I see it on TV. The end of Saving Private Ryan - Ryan as an old man at the cemetery with his family - makes me cry every time.

    I feel an intense need to go to pay my respects.

    The towns in Europe where my families came from.

    I've always wanted to go Washington D.C. and tour everything there. I've been to NYC (two years before 9-11), so that's already crossed off my list.

    Antarctica. (Seriously.)

    I want to set foot in all 50 states (or at least each of the lower 48).
    Always wanted to visit Alcatraz and San Francisco, just to see the natural beauty of it.

    Got to cross a couple off the list last week by taking in a day game at Wrigley and going to the top of the Sears Tower. Took this at the latter:

    Off the top of my head, the top five places on my bucket list:

    1. Smithsonian Institute
    2. Ireland (especially the ruins of the castle that bears my family's name)
    3. Great Wall of China
    4. Swiss Alps
    5. St. Basil's Cathedral (in Moscow)

    Lots of places. The one least likely to duplicate others' choices is Angkor Wat.

    A ton of places in Asia, South America, Australia/New Zealand, and Russia. I've hit most of the ones I want to get to in the West.

    I've been to Red Square, and have seen St. Basil's. It's incredible.

    But, it's only open for tours a couple of days a week, so I didn't see the inside. If you ever go, plan your trip accordingly.

    Moscow is amazing. There are 5 churches/Chapels on the grounds of the Kremlin alone, and they are beautiful.

    My wife's ass.

    Seriously though:
    The bowels (no pun intended) of the Fenway Park scoreboard
    Any of the famous Mayan pyramids
    Any of the famous Egyptian pyramids
    The north coast of Australia
    The Holy Land
    Hitler's "castle"
    A Siberian workcamp
