Hi Nerdy Mom (Gold Conversationalist)
Bermuda is not that big but a very friendly island, wish I could have stayed longer. Bought city bus pass for $20 which is also good for ferry to Hamilton or St. George - never made it to St. George.

The Grand Canyon also on my list but opted to tour Hoover Dam instead mainly due to time restrictions making sure we were back in time to catch our flight - Going to the Grand Canyon would have taken an entire day's tour leaving from Las Vegas, simply not enough time to do both.

Chicago was interesting, I recommend you buy subway pass in advance (VERY INEXPENSIVE AND EASY TO DO)- we got off the plane and subway at Ohaire airport takes you directly downtown, if that is where you will stay near the touristy things of interest.

I recently crossed St. Augustine off the list; spent the day in historic area, had a great time could walk to everything with starting point Fountain of Youth - parking not so great though

My list is the Panama Canal/Costa Rica, Cuba, South Africa and Toronto. I'm sure there is more to be added to my list.

I started on my travel bucket list two years ago and have loved every minute of my travels so far, most of the bucket list includes travel desinations in the US visiting states of interest as well as Canada, Carribean Islands and Cuba.  I have completed 95 percent of the list with only Cuba and visting Canada again remaining. One of my favorite dsestinations was Bermuda least favorite were the smaller Bahama islands.

I travel to the UK every year. In England, I would add the Lake District along with the Cotswolds. That's my personal fave area of England. 


Just think. The world was built by the lowest bidder.

If you're a real buckaroo, check out Tanque Verde Ranch in Tucson.  This dude ranch is located in the midst of the gorgeous Sonoran Desert and offers Desert hikes, horseback riding, cookouts (excellent food both at the cookout and in their dining room), swimming/tanning, etc.  The staff is very solicitous and you'll be happy riding or just sitting watching the horses in the corral.

Provence, always Provence, first and foremost!  And, Luxor/Upper Egypt and Sharm al Sheikh., As with the preceding three, the Amalfi Coast is always on the list.  I've been to all of these locations many times but they will always head my bucket list no matter how often I'm lucky enough to be in these spots.
