Recently I, stopped at the Borders book store located at the park Place Mall to pick up a cup of coffee, while I was there I saw this book on the shelf in the travel section the cover read “1000 places to visit before kicking the bucket”. It reminded me of the movie "Bucket List" with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman (If you have not seen it, I challenge you to, you will not regret it). I stopped to look at it, it was one of those giant books that you have to put on the floor to flip the pages, it had the most breath-taking colored photographs of the 1000 places listed. Of the 1000 listed, I managed to identify about 35 that I have already been to, can you imagine how many more I need to visit to accomplish 1000? I thought to myself, if only my luck would change for a year, I would make it a mission to go through at least a quarter of the places listed. I identified the following places that are not on my bucket list, but that I should not mind going to given a chance: a prayer from my mouth to God's ears. Christ the Redeemer, Petra, Chichen Itza, Great Barrier Reef, Aurora, Galapagos Islands, Panama canal, Iguacu Falls, Banff National Park, Phahos Archaeological Site (Cyprus).
