Heaven on Earth:100 Places to See in your Lifetime

As a gift to its subscribers, Time magazine gave out a very special book, something that I will treasure my entire life. That is the Heaven on Earth: 100 Places to See in Your Lifetime.

Out of the 100 places mentioned there, I’ve only been to four. It could have been five because my sister and I planned on going there but we were not able to do so due to late preparation. It could have been six if we chose that highway from LA to San Jose. It could have been seven if my project in Australia pushed through, I even have the visa already.

And now, I can proudly say that it will soon (hopefully, nothing goes wrong) become five as I have a trip to China at the end of May and we vow to go and visit The Great Wall of China.

Without further ado, I am presenting the 100 Places to See in Your Lifetime as presented by Time magazine.

Those in blue font are the places I’ve been to.

Having seen this list, hubby and I agreed to try and visit one from the list at least every other year. That means we should no longer go back to the countries we’ve been to and instead visit a new place.

I wish I can include in this blog the actual pictures used by Time, I’ll try my best so I can share what I have seen in that book.
