Oh the places you’ll go…

Posted: August 25, 2011 by Isaac Cross in About Me

I know I haven’t had much content lately, but I’ve been crazy busy with a ‘nilla project and just haven’t had time to write lately.

But today, I picked up an awesome book about the most important places in the world, and felt compelled to put something down about it.

I found myself, as I was reading this book, with a deep desire to go to these places myself. Some are far, some are near. Some have grandeur, and some simply have history.

Why are we drawn to these places?

What compels us to stand on significant ground?

Why do we feel the need to leave our homes and go to these other places?

For some of these places, the answer is more obvious, for some, it is mysterious. Below, I will highlight a few of the places that I most want to visit. Click on any of the pictures to go to the place’s wikipedia page.

    That is the weirdest thing that you brought this up today. I picked up this exact book today and read all through it. I am telling you, that is so strange. I was just looking at it wondering how many people I know have actually been to any of these places.
