Lonely Planet: Top 500 Global Destinations

January 10, 2019

I was bored recently so I googled “list of global landmarks” to see how many I have been to and since I think someone else in the universe may not care like I do, here’s a list of the places from the list I have been to (if you want to full list/quiz CLICK HERE).

Its funny that I keep ranting about how I hate travel lists yet I always get sucked into doing these quizzes. So hypocritical! lol
