I have been thinking I should probably have a “top 5 places I want to visit before I die” list. I love to travel and love to meet people from different backgrounds and cultures and taste their food. At the same time I also want to see the world – experience their lifestyle, shop where they shop, understand how the live, see what matters to them the most in life. For that I have to travel. Sometimes I wish I had taken up a career in travel writing or journalism. I do not think I would have been married then or had children. We have to make choices in life, don’t we?
OK – so which are the top 10 places I want to visit before I die and why? Let us take it 1 place at a time – the next ten blogs you will hear about those 5 places in no particular order and why I so very much want to visit the place. What attracts me to those places, what I know about those places and what could perhaps frighten me in those places? Writing about this would also help me review my list. I cannot choose whole continents in these lists – it has to be countries or places.
