1000 Places to See Before You Die
Help us build a waymarking "Bucket List" of sites, cities, and experiences as indexed in travel writer Patricia Schultz's bestselling books, "1000 Places To See Before You Die: A Traveler's Life List."
Expanded Description:
Tour Elvis Presley's Graceland.
See the Sistine Chapel.
Ride a gondola in Venice.

They're called "Life Lists" and "Bucket Lists."
Whether it's written down or spinning around in your head, everyone has a wish list of things they'd like to accomplish in their life time, before you..."kick the bucket."
This category is an attempt to build a waymarking Life List of sites, cities, and experiences around the world as indexed in travel writer Patricia Schultz's books, 1000 Places to See Before you Die: A Traveler's Life List,, 1000 Places to See in the USA and Canada Before You Die. and 1,000 Places to See Before You Die (Deluxe Edition): The World as You've Never Seen It Before.
Check out a copy of the books at the local library or buy a copy yourself. Maybe the author's list doesn't include items on your own life list. Nevertheless, I'm sure you'll find the books interesting and informative.
Maybe it will inspire you to start your own Life List.

With the exception of major cities (New York, Rome, London, etc.), only one waymark submission per indexed site (in the book) will be accepted. Some indexed major cities include multiple sub-indexes which are acceptable submissions.
NOTE: Only indexed and sub-indexed sites from the book are eligible for submission.

Instructions for Posting a 1000 Places to See Before You Die Waymark:
YOU MUST NOT quote from the book in your waymark descriptions.
Many of the indexed sites, cities, and experiences are non-localized (without specific GPS coordinates). Waymark submissions must provide information that will inform and guide visitors including:
-Title of waymark should list site and location as noted in the book (Kennedy Space Center - Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA)
-Photos of recognizable landmarks and scenic places mentioned in the book
-Accurate GPS coords taken from representative, photographed site
-Hours and admission where necessary
-Dates of festivals and events where necessary
Adventure/Experiences (Example: Tracking the Mountain Gorilla-Uganda, Swimming with Manatees-Florida) may use coords for businesses that are used but must provide ample photos of experience.
Events (Example: Monarch Butterfly Migration-Mexico and Carnival-Brazil) should provide coordinates and dates of the experience along with first person photos of the event.
Only entries in the above mentioned Patricia Schultz books will be accepted in this category.


(Locations approved prior to this date are grandfathered.)

Upload a photo of site entry in the book with the name of the site clearly visible as illustrated below. The text after the WHAT is what you need to indicate in the "Type of Waymark" variable.

As indicated above, there may be multiple entries for major cities. The eligible locations are typically indicated in CAPITAL LETTERS as illustrated below for the location "L'HOTEL". In this case you must also upload a photo of the page describing the location you are waymarking if it is not already visible in the first photo.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Because of the vastness of many of the "non-localized" sites (Gobi Desert, Great Wall of China), waymark owners are encouraged to allow visits that reflect different perspectives and experiences.
Localized waymark sites (Structures, Landmarks, Businesses) should reflect standard waymarking visit criteria (Logs & photos).
