Travel List Challenge

Since I missed travel Tuesday yesterday.....I thought I'd opt for a second post today.

Have you heard about all these new lists that are popping up? There is the food list to prove if you're a real foodie or not, and there is the travel list to prove how well traveled you are. Although I certainly have done a fair amount of traveling thus far, this list is intense! And definitely makes me want to travel more. Start saving your pennies J. :)

It's kind of embarrassing that I've been to both Washington DC and New York City multiple times but have never checked out the museums or great-grandparents names are even engraved at the Statue of Librty! AndI'm a little disappointed that Yellowstone isn't on this list. That place is ah-mazing.

Neither of my trips to Italy have taken me to Rome or Venice so that is a MUST on the next trip! Off to day dream about the next trip we'll need to plan..... How many of these places have you visited??
