lost interest in the book when seeing Golden Gate Bridge listed as "best of the best" places. It is not even one of those best places.

I've been to every major wine region in the world except New Zealand and Australia, so I would like to check those off. I've also been to every state except Alaska, so will be making that trip someday.

Care to share yours? Maybe I can add to my list.
Have no interest to see Alaska in winter. Hate the cold.

Otherwise I have seen / done alll of the above except the ruins of Pompeii
I loved the Summer Palace of Catherine as much as the Winter Palace of Peter.

My current bucket list

Angkor Wat and Vietnam

Petra and Jerusalem if the area ever stabilizes.

The great churches and cathedrals of Spain.

China including Tibet

Take the Trans Siberian railway train from Moscow to Mongolia.

Patagonia and Easter Island
