The First Day Of The Rest Of Your Lives

1000 Places to See Before You DieWhat It Is:  Leather-bound books rendered in cheerful bright colours – but of course, you shouldn’t just judge a book by its cover, however lovely it is. Inside these tomes, you’ll find an exhaustive list of breathtaking places that should be seen by adventurers big and small. From renowned museums and feats of architecture to spectacular views and ancient ruins, just think of it as a manual to living out the rest of your life.

Who It’s For:  Your newly graduated son or daughter, to inspire them to think beyond the everyday. Your adventure-loving sibling, so they can plan their next great trip. Your just about to retire boss, so he or she can see a few more wonders now that their time is freed up.

What It Costs:  $84 each. It’s the leather people.

Where It’s At:  Graphic Image

    I would love to read this. I love to travel, and would like to see as much of the world as possible. The hidden Island category intrigues me.

  2. Susan says:

    I love to travel, so I think I’d love this book. I think everyone should see The Great Wall of China. It is amazing, can be seen from space, and has a fascinating history.

  3. cookie3 says:

    Oh for sure ! Love traveling even from the proverbial armchair.

  4. May says:

    I would buy this book! I want to see the Great Wall of China!

  5. Susan T. says:

    I would absolutely buy this book! I think everyone should see Banff, Alberta. It is home for me but there is no better example of the Rockies than here. I would love to go to Iceland and see all the volcanic hot pools!

  6. Laura says:

    My mom would really enjoy this book, she does a lot of traveling. I would love to see Easter Island someday.

    I dont think we would buy it – but if I got it for a gift I would read it

    Lazypants bonus entry: I would buy this book & hope to dog-ear many pages. One of the 1,000 places I think people should see is Mount Everest in Nepal before it becomes even more touristy then it is now and to give thanks to the Sherpas who give their lives to help tourists.

  9. Julie G. says:

    I actually have this book – though not leather bound. It’s an inspiring book if you enjoy traveling.
    I think the breathtaking beauty of the Cinque Terre in Italy is definitely worthy enough to be included in the 1,000 places.

  10. Joan G. says:

    I’m not sure I would buy this book for myself, there are so many other sources for people who want recommendations of places to see. Top of my list is Hawaii, I’ve been there but it’s so beautiful I want to go back and spend more time viewing the spectacular islands.
