100 Places To Visit Before You Die




Dear Mum, this is not me.
Love Kylie










Now, the following list is merely a guide. It is not all-inclusive, nor does it take into account sinking cities.

For example it does not mention my current view whilst writing this blog. But it does mention Venice: Folks, it's sinking an inch every decade! Hurry!

A friend sent this list to me this week, and I'm enjoying dreaming about all these places. It does however, give me itchy feet. I already had itchy feet so now I think I've got a bad case of the hives.

Better get moving. Places to go, people to meet. Swiss winters to hide from.

    The only place I've ever been to on that list is Ayers Rock.
    I really need to get going if I'm visit all 100 before I die.

  3. Thank goodness thats not you flying off that cliff!
    Well I'm so glad that I went to 11 of those places with you...:-)
    And time to stop itching I think.
    And if you can't, then why not make a movie about it and get someone to finance it!

  4. Are you the Kylie of Venice?

    My word, I don't DARE think of a must-see-must-visit list. It will get me all depressed! There is just too much to see, and not enough money and time in the world to do it! I'll just have to live vicariously through you, great Kylie.
