This is the list of places, buildings things I've always wanted to see - some I've managed to, some I'm still planning, and some are still a long way off.
One with a very long ride down in a lift.
Active would be great, but just an old one is fine.
Airliners, fighter jets, or perhaps tiny planes.
Not big, but still quite impressive.
Deep Space Observatory
You know, the really high up ones. Full of science.
Preferably without too much radiation exposure
Big, round and very, very hot.
Visited JET, May 2010
We're talking giant here. Preferably with an inside.
Troll A would be amazing, as it has hollow legs.
Big, round, and very, very cold.
Visited Diamond Light Source, March 2012
Something reasonably large. Moon launch best.
Tallest Building in the World
Waiting until this is no longer in Dubai.
Top of a Wind Turbine
I've stood underneath, but not up top.
I'd include the other continents, but they're too easy.
Something that needs proper equipment to reach
Sand dunes! Dune buggies!
Norway, New Zealand, something similar.
Gates of Hell
A continuously-burning hole in the desert
Victoria Falls, then perhaps Angel Falls
A nice big one, full of ice.
Of the volcanic kind, naturally
Specifically, the ice caves.
One is fine, two is amazing.
I know, not a place, but still amazing.
A long trip in a tiny submersible...
And not just the little bit in the Eden Project
Relampago del Catatumbo
The world's most constant lightning storm
Why not? It's not that far away...
The world's Arctic forest
Tiny Ocean Atoll
Where there's no other land in sight
We're talking full-on lava lake here.
An abandoned town
Even better: Centralia, Pensylvania
Vibrant, modern, and full of history.
Visited May 2010
One of humanity's greatest scars on Earth
Sad, but a crucial lesson in our history.
Big, bustling and unique (plus a crazy airport)
Architecture, space and deep metro stations.
The Big Apple. Complete with 24 hour food.
The city of love, and good cheese.
Visited March 2010
Iconic, progressive, and far too warm.
Visited September 2008
Containing the world's most northern city.
Home of the world's prettiest concrete building.
Modern, busy and delightfully Japanese.
Home to law, power, and museums.
Visited September 2012
The world's coldest city
