National Geographic Traveler is running a series, Places of a Lifetime, which kicked off with 10 cities. I have the good fortune of living in one of them, have lived in another, London, and traveled to the others, some almost every year.
Here are National Geographic’s picks in order of where I would like to get on a plane and go today: Hong Kong, London, Beijing, Los Angeles, Rome, Paris, San Francisco, Miami and Washington D.C.
I have written about some of these destinations, Hong Kong, Beijing and New York, and will be posting on others. I look forward to seeing which locations NG adds next and how many of them are on my endless list of places to go. If you could get on a plane today where would you go?
The photo above was taken in Wanchai, Hong Kong.
Tomorrow: Mexico's remote Real de Catorce, a ghost town undergoing a renaissance.
