One more time to go *home*, where I grew up (Western Europe).
Haven't been back for almost 20 years ...

Since it was mentioned as a *bucket list*,
I mean before I kick the bucket ...

Except for Machu-Picchu, and Monticello, I have been to the places mentioned by the OP.

I'd like to go and see what Somalia is REALLY like. I don't trust the news media to paint that picture for me.

It's awesome that you've been so many amazing places!

Of the things on my list that you have done, which was your favorite?

(and you got it right about kicking the bucket - these are all places I want to see before I die )

On your list Nepal is the only one that interests me I'm afraid!

Though there is a really cool indoor water park I'd love to see in China - The Water Cube:

Japan ( the traditional and historic side of it, no interest in modern Japan , my idea of hell) , staying in traditional Riokans and eating at the best Japanese restaurants in the country as well as everyday eateries.

Bhutan

Australia ( Tasmania and West Coast mostly)

"The Spirit Bear" Rainforest and North Coast of BC , sailing along the coast and in and out of the inlets and rivers too. Also all the coastal Islands.

Sailing to the Faroe Islands


Going back to the Galapagos ( sailing again)


Sailing around the Islands of Scotland, and hugging the coast ( some of the most beautiful scenery in the world IMO)


Going back to Mongolia

Going back to Chile and Patagonia

Sailing around the world , hugging all the coastlines as much as possible

I guess my short list is modest compared with other travelers here.

Yellowstone National Park
Monterey, CA and the Napa Valley
Some island in the Caribbean

Plans for one of these will be made this winter.
