Bucket lists. We've probably all got one, and I can't get over my slightly morbid fascination of the idea of making the list of the things you'd like to live framed around dying. Maybe it's that the finitude of life creates a sweet sense of urgency that makes experience all the more poignant. But I'm not here to philosophize; I leave that to the well-bearded among us. I'm here to tell you about the second edition of 1,000 Places To See Before You Die with the much more uplifting subtitle: A Traveler's Life List.
A coffeetable book if there ever was one, 1,000 Places lays out some of the most unique and gorgeous places the world has to offer. And one of the things about the luxury hotel industry is that we've done a pretty good job of making sure that most of these places have the accommodations for you to experience them. Heading to the Amalfi Coast? Why not stay at the Palazzo Sasso, which has a breathtaking view of the ocean stretching out from its feet, 350 meters below. Or perhaps you're interested in Paris. The Plaza Athenee or Hotel de Crillon have you covered. It's really quite incredible when you step back to think how easy it is to experience the unique gems this blue-green sphere has to offer. So pick up your copy of 1,000 Places To See Before You Die and pick out your next vacation destination. We have certainly have some suggestions for you.
