The list of "want to see" is way too large though at the top of my list would be the Egyptian pyramids. The list of have seen is:

Historic Centre of Vienna
La Grand-Place, Brussels
Historic Centre of Brugge
Historic District of Old Quebec
Rideau Canal (went skating there last night!!!)
The Great Wall
Chartres Cathedral
Paris, Banks of the Seine
Historic Centre of Avignon
Cologne Cathedral
Acropolis, Athens
Archaelogical Site of Olympia
Historic Centre of Rome
Vatican City
Venice and its Lagoon
Seventeenth-century canal ring area of Amsterdam
Historic Centre of Saint Petersburg
Carlsbad Caverns National Park

That's 18 of 911, only 893 to go!

That's an impressive list Steven!

Looking at it now, it's mostly from that month long trip backpacking through Europe. But can you believe it, I didn't even take photos at the Great Wall in China, or the Forbidden City in Beijing, or any from all my trips to Korea and Japan! I wouldn't have any from Saint Petersberg if my father and sister hadn't forced me to. Now, I think they were right. I am in other people's photos though, since many Asians like having westerners in their photos, especially when they're wearing a wide-brimmed hat like I was.

But what about everyone else? Which ones on the list have you been to?

If you spend your time behind or in front of the camera you won't experience as much. Or least that could be your argument.

After a quick skim of the list here's what I got.

Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System
Discovery Coast Atlantic Forest Reserves (Brazil)
Brasilia
Historic District of Old Québec
Area de Conservación Guanacaste
Colonial City of Santo Domingo
Historic Centre of Mexico City and Xochimilco
Pre-Hispanic City of Chichen-Itza
Fortifications on the Caribbean Side of Panama: Portobelo-San Lorenzo
Yellowstone National Park
Everglades National Park
Grand Canyon National Park
Independence Hall
Redwood National and State Parks
Mammoth Cave National Park
Olympic National Park
Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Statue of Liberty
Yosemite National Park
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Carlsbad Caverns National Park

That's off the top of my head.

Nice list! Thanks for sharing. We even have some in common.

I didn't notice Rideau Canal on there. My Mom lives in Ottawa. I've skated there a few times. Last February at Witerlude it was insanely crowded.
