Review: 1,000 Places to See Before You Die

User Review  - Stephanie - Goodreads

Not sure why I wanted to read someone else's idea of places people need to see before they die other than it sound slight interesting. It ended up not being a good read. She listed places I wouldn't want to visit. I'll just stick to my bucket list of places I want to visit. Read full review
