1,000 places to see before you die book review

Here’s a good review of the best selling, 1000 Places to See Before You Die by Patricia Schultz. Interesting idea which I agree with theoretically:

“I think you need to go with a real sense of curiosity and with certain expectations, or you wouldn’t be making the trip happen in the first place, but leaving your mind open to serendipity, because it’s the best tour guide in the end of it all.” Schultz says. “You don’t want to be too rigid and restricted in these packaged tours where every moment is accounted for. You want to get out there and wander and not just physically, but to leave yourself open to different experiences, which often times are the ones that stay with you for life.”

Of course as you may be able to tell from my travel plan blog that I do like to have a plan when I travel. I am sometimes willing to stray from the plan…

    I have acquired the book and initialed the places that I’ve experienced. (Thus far I’ve seen 129 of these treasures.) So not only is the book a guide that identifies the world’s top tourist attactions, it is lasting evidence of one’s attempt to become known as a world traveler. This should be of interest to our friends, families and future generations.
