Dave!I've been fortunate to have seen a big chunk of the world in my life of travels... but it seems there's always somewhere else to go.

HuffPo Travel has assembled The Top 50 Cities to See in Your Lifetime, which is the kind of list I live for... even though these things are usually geographically biased or don't reflect my travel interests. That being said, this one is actually pretty good. I would put Edinburgh, Scotland over a lot of the cities on it, but still... pretty good.

Mostly because I've only been to half of them...

  1. Venice, Italy
  2. Seville, Spain
  3. New York City, USA
  4. Lhasa, China
  5. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  6. London, England
  7. Marrakech, Morocco
  8. Petra, Jordan
  9. Rome, Italy
  10. Varanasi, India
  11. Florence, Italy
  12. Havana, Cuba
  13. Kyoto, Japan
  14. Jerusalem, Israel
  15. Paris, France
  16. Beijing, China
  17. Lalibela, Ethiopia
  18. Granada, Spain
  19. Athens, Greece
  20. Bagan, Myanmar
  21. Kathmandu, Nepal
  22. Vatican City
  23. Lisbon, Portugal
  24. Tokyo, Japan
  25. Istanbul, Turkey
  26. Hội An, Vietnam
  27. Amsterdam, Netherlands
  28. Luxor, Egypt
  29. Berlin, Germany
  30. Jaipur, India
  31. Lyon, France
  32. Oia, Greece
  33. Siem Reap, Cambodia
  34. Vienna, Austria
  35. Cusco, Peru
  36. Cartagena, Colombia
  37. Zanzibar, Tanzania
  38. Mexico City, Mexico
  39. Singapore
  40. Las Vegas, USA
  41. Samarkand, Uzbekistan
  42. Sydney, Australia
  43. San Francisco, California, USA
  44. Mont Saint Michel, France
  45. Dubrovnik, Croatia
  46. Bangkok, Thailand
  47. Buenos Aires, Argentina
  48. Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala
  49. Prague, Czech Republic
  50. Budapest, Hungary

Given that Spain is one of my favorite places to vacation, I'm hoping I get to Seville and Granada eventually. India and Nepal have long been dream destinations, so Kathmandu, Varanasi, and Jaipur would be next on my list.

But Budapest and Vienna have Hard Rock Cafes, so...

I'm nothing if not predictable.

    I’ve been to 2 places you haven’t been (Seville + Budapest)? I’m shocked! I’ve only seen 11 of these cities; really want to see more.

  2. Dadcation says:

    Make that 3…just noticed you didn’t check Vienna!

  3. I’ve been to 13 of them which isn’t as shabby as I expected. Vienna is amazing and you should jump at the chance if it ever presents itself.

    I’m surprised that you’ve not been to Vienna already. I see from the above comment that will be next spring.
