  1. I love the quote you started with. “See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.” AMEN. And this is an awesome list; every single place sounds incredible! It’s crazy to think about just how massive Asia really is, and how many countries are included. Myself, I’d love to see Turkey.
