100 places i want to go before i die

that might sound a little more morbid than i meant it to be, but i was going for more of the inspirational travel to do list type of thing…. anyway. last year i filled up my passport and saw a lot of world, but man there is a lot more world to see! i’m going to make a running list of places i want to go that i’ve never been before, places that i’d like to go again, and things i’d like to do/see while i’m there. i’ll get to 100 eventually…
