Do You Know Where You’re Going To. . .

There’s this thing floating around Facebook where you mark all the places you have been on the list of 100 they give you.  There’s a tagline that reads, “We think most people will have been to fewer than 9 of these 100 places to visit before you die.”  That’s nice.

So, I’ve been to 18 which, at least, allows me to “nyah-nyah” the Facebook people.  I’m going to look at the rest of the list as a reference for  future family vacations – we all know 2 special needs kids and a four year old would do GREAT climbing Ayers Rock!  I am eager to know how many places my dad can mark off (or, more easily, which couple he hasn’t been too).  Actually, my dad, brother, and friend Tammy – I am truly curious about these three.

Why don’t you all check out the list and let me know your tally.

  1. Uncle Andy says:

    29. How come Vulcan or Reeds Gold Mine aren’t listed?

  2. julia says:

    I beleive I have officially been to 36 of the 100. Hmmm, no baseball stadiums, I would have rocked if they were listed!

  3. Madelyn says:

    I got 11 but some of those wee “just passing through on the way to somewhere else and all were in the USA Lower and Alaska.

  4. Monica says:

    I’ve been to 10, and all in the USA, so I can die happy. 🙂 Funny thing, if we do our trip we’re planning for summer I’ll hit 5 more. 1/2 of what it’s taken my whole life to see, in just one shot. Mo

  5. Adelaide Williams says:

    Oh, my, what a sheltered unexciting life I’ve lived. Only 7 places out of 100 so far. Guess Laudon and I need to start looking outside the box. Adelaide

  6. Melanie says:

    I’m not sure. I know I’ve been to 18, but I think I’ve been to 20. Some were as a child and I don’t remember them, but I know we went b/c I’ve seen pics. And I’ve seen some (maybe all?) of those places in Japan, but I can’t remember all of them specifically b/c it all sort of runs together in my mind.

  7. amy s. says:

    9. a sad nine. but i’m with melanie, some of those places in japan sound familiar…is it just because i heard of them or because i’ve actually been. i counted them so that my number wouldn’t be pathetic. 🙂

  8. Debbie says:

    16–not too bad, but I am definitely not a world traveler. Maybe one day I will add to my number, but I seriously doubt I will ever complete the list!

  9. Wendy Savage says:

    I think my count was 30. It would be 31 if you count flying over the Las Vegas strip on Southwest. It helps that I was born & raised in California and studied overseas. I haven’t been to Asia or south of the Equator, so I’ll have to put that on my “to go to” list. I do feel blessed to have seen so many incredible sights, and many more that aren’t on the 100 list.

  10. Debbie says:

    I recounted (it was late last night) and this time I got 19 :). Maybe I should keep recounting and pretty soon I will have seen them all.

  11. Glenda says:

    I was able to mark off 19, but the one that was most impressive to me wasn’t even listed, Normandy Cemetary in France. Quite impressive! This was fun, Glenda

  12. 33, I think ;). I’ve lived close to several of them…funny.
