A list of all countries you consider must see before you die.

Some may have a lot. Others may have few. What are these countries?

I've been to 40-50, but there are so many more to get to. Sri Lanka, India, Burma, Madagascar, South Africa, Brazil, Colombia, Israel, Cambodia and Japan are high on my list.

India (next month now...)
Turkey
Vietnam
Bosnia & Herzegovina
Nicaragua, again

Those are the ones I have a real hankering for. Not sure why exactly, but they peak my interests the most. That's not to say I would lose interest in travelling if I could see all of my list right now either.

Australia
New Zealand
UK Only been to London
Spain (been to a lot but more to see)
Argentina
Germany (Only been to Munich and a small port town north of Berlin)
Russia (only been to St. Pete)
Greece
Israel
Canada

Never been to, need to go:
Brazil

India
Thailand
South Korea
Many Islands in the Caribbean too many to name
Tahiti
Maldives
UAE
Croatia
Austria
Hungry
Poland
Ireland

Those are the ones which come to mind right away. Plenty of places I been for only a day or so coming off a cruise like Norway or Estonia but these are the ones I really want to see the most or see again.

Little Corn Island, Nicaragua-no roads, small, cheap accomodations.
Italy-for the food of course
Egypt-I must see the pyramids in my lifetime
France, specifically Paris-because everyone goes there & I really want to see St. Chappelle
Mexico-obviously for the food & it'd be pretty embarassing if I never went there. Everyone goes.
Morocco-I like the idea of all those markets
Turkey, specifically Istanbul-see above, plus it seems exotic
Brazil

huh? Have you ever had real Mexican food?
I think you are mistaking "texmex" for Mexican food. Note really the same.


For the original post...not sure if it's a blessing or a curse - I've been just about everywhere already. I'm starting to run out of places, becoming a jaded traveler. Been too many places - Every state in the US except 2, every continent except Australia and Greenland, oh and Antarctica. Most of the European countries (Netherlands? - I go there so often I feel like I live there)...countries in Africa (Egypt?-been there twice)...countries all over Asia (India?- go yearly at least, sometimes twice a year)...South America (Brazil?-been there about 5 times)....Oceana (New Zealand? - been there, done that)....not much left.
