    Guess I better get working on MY list.

    I’d love to visit the Northwest Territories too, mostly to see the Northern Lights.

    Have visited the Grand Canyon and it is well-worth the trip.

    Let us know how things proceed with that list …

    Holland and Yellowstone I’d like to see. Seen the Grand Canyon – it was awesome, but take plenty of water if you dare hike into it.

    My list would need to include the Tuscany region of Italy, Oregon, northern California and Utah. Oh, and to return to Newfoundland. Newfoundland is so so amazing.

    Yukon is beautiful, Lisa. My husband and I were there in 2009. It is truly a stunning place to visit. I highly recommend taking an ATV tour up into the mountains. It’s spectacular.

    Why was Scotland not on this bucket list.

      You know, it should have been. Let me fix my error!

      My friend lives near Dallas, but I think I have a growing number of people to visit in Texas now! Or…. next meetup???
