Reprioritizing some things - promoted Greenland and Mongolia to the top 10 and moved Kyrgyzstan and Kamchatka to "other".

In no particular order:

1 - South Georgia
2 - Madagascar
3 - Mongolia
4 - Deadvlei/Skeleton Coast, Namibia
5 - Greenland
6 - Erta Ale, Ethiopia
7 - Socotra, Yemen
8 - Komodo National Park and Raja Ampat, Indonesia
9 - Gabon
10 - Palau

Other things high up on the to do list are Siberia in the winter, Cabo Verde, Greenland, Kamchatka Peninsula, Mongolia, Hokkaido, Madagascar, Angel Falls, and a good nap.

Alaska Done!
Hawaii Done!
Iceland Done!
Cuba Done!
Norway Done!
Antarctica Done!
Kenya/Tanzania/Botswana Safari Done!
Lenšˇis Maranhenses Done!
Israel Done!
Guatemalan volcanoes Done!
Galapagos Done!
Great Barrier Reef Done!

Ranking of what...? My favorite places? Places I'd recommend to others?

I'll say this: if you can only go to 5 places in your life, I'd say these (in alphabetical order):

Antarctica
Hawaii
Iceland
Israel
Kenya/Tanzania/Botswana Safari
Would you do iceland in the summer? Is that a good time to go?

Being in Siberia in the winter earns a lot of street cred in Chabad.

Partially, yes. I love the cold, the colder the better.

But a place like Lake Baikal is absolutely stunning in the winter and has been on my bucket list for a long time.

Because the one thing I'm missing in my life is Chabad street cred 🤣
