    Hi there, i really like the list, I think is it romantic, adventurous and must do. But I am a little upset that only Himalayas from India is on your list. We are too many places that are famous and yet to be explored. I am not sure if you have visited India. Please do consider this as my invite……Otherwise, as usual..your write up is superb.
