Listeria – Travelogue Edition

17 Oct

The latest issue of Travel and Leisure has an article called “101 Places Every Traveler Should Know”. As you know, I am a freak for lists, so I scanned the article to see which ones I have visited. The following is my personal list from the 101, along with a three word synopsis of each.

The Road to Somewhere

2. Maine – lots of lobster

7. Las Vegas – please read this

14. New York City – too many people

17. Kauai, Hawaii – most beautiful island

24. London – where’s the queen?

26. Jackson Hole, Wyoming – outdoor adventures galore

27. Salmon River, Idaho – riding rapids rapidly

33. San Francisco – tour Alcatraz Island

40. Miami – hot women everywhere

41. Los Angeles – seeing fallen stars

45. Napa Valley – vine to bottle

    Why is Chicago your favorite city?

      It’s a big city with a small town feel. It has great restaurants, interesting history, and the best nightclub I’ve ever been to. There’s just something about it that I like.

    That’s a funny coincidence, I picked up a book last weekend “101 Places To Visit Before You Die”. I didn’t buy it, the worlds too big a place to narrow it down to 101. I think Yosemite would definitely be up there for me. Cheers Sue

      I’ve seen that book, too. Definitely, the world can’t be narrowed down to a list.

    checked the list. In the “Asia” section, Hangzhou is there but my hometown Suzhou isn’t. I refuse to accept it.

      Asia is the one part of the world that I badly want to visit.
