that's a cool idea, to try to visit 100 places from that book! though to be honest I have the 1001 Places to See Before you Die book as well and I'm not that fond of it...I feel like too many of the places in there are like hotels and places that paid the author to include them :-/

Can you pick up on my jealousy??

Wiz said...
