Things To Do, Things To See


When the book 1,000 Places To See Before You Die by Patricia Schultz came out I could not wait to read it. I love travel literature and this is like a long, exotic fantasy list. I purchased the book and loved it.

I started seeing that other bloggers were placing lists such as 50 Things I Would Like To Do Before I Die, 100 Places I'd Like to See Before I Dies, etc., etc. I just came across an interesting book entitled, 50 Places To Flyfish Before You Die by Chris Santella. Everyone is getting into the act. I thought I would give it a try. So without further ado here are 50 Things That I Would Like To See and Do Before I Die:
