So, there's this book, see? It's called "Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die" by Steve Davey. This is the list of places he believes we should see. I tend to agree with many if not all of them. My question to all of you is: what's missing from this list? Additional questions: Which of these have you visited and of them, which do you recommend and why? I've placed a star next to the few I've seen. I really do want to see the Grand Canyon!
