I haven't even heard of some of those places. :)

London: So full of history. Wish I had months there with a good tour guide.

Lourdes: Oh yes. I'd love to go.

Gettysburg: Tourist trap! Doesn't matter; it's still a great trip. Eisenhower's retirement house is there and fun to visit.

Ireland: I'd love to go just to be in the company of people who look somewhat like me. I like the diversity of Los Angeles and all, but every once in a while, when I happen to see someone else who's not just white but has the look of the British Isles, I become aware of a kind of homesickness for a place I've never been...

Guadalupe: Went last year and it was an AMAZING time. I do regret that I didn't have an entire day just to sit in the basilica and gaze at the tilma and pray.

Incidentally, you'd better either get going or live to a hundred. :)
