XL suggestions : Île Dumet (Pole of the continental hemisphere) and "Le point 45°N 0° à Puynormand : à l’intersection du méridien de Greenwich et du 45ème parallèle". https://bordeaux2066.com/2014/11/24/le-point-45n-0-a-puynormand-a-lintersection-du-meridien-de-greenwich-et-du-45eme-parallele/
To the experiences
*Fire a real gun
*Visit an aircraft carrier or another big warship
*Be in a warzone
*Go island hopping (example with a speedboat)
*Should change the +45/-20 names and add Celsius as im sure many americans would look at the first +45 as a very easy challenge :D.
Why not a series on the bridges? The bridges are loaded with symbolism for a traveler.
Hello, I propose that in the category "wonders" be privileged sites not part of the list of World Heritage, in order to avoid duplicates. My first wonder proposal is Karni Mata Temple. Perhaps this place could also appear in the category "experiences".
I also propose this place to the wonders list in Peru: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huaca_Pucllana
I propose CHAD or SISO only for cyclists
I think this amazing place https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derinkuyu_underground_city should also be included in the wonders section of TBT series.
Anne-Sophie Songo I do agree ! Wonderful place !
Tom Wong I agree
How about the National Parks of the World?
TBT Official We thought about this list but we cannot promise - there are too many national parks and we cannot include them all. Choosing the most interesting ones is really difficult and time consuming. Any volunteers to help us will be more than welcome.
Tom Wong This National Geographic magazine listed 76 greatest national parks in the world. https://shop.nationalgeographic.com/product/magazines/special-issues/national-geographic-greatest-parks-of-the-world-special-issue. I have a list that I can send to TBT.
Tom Wong This blogger wrote about it here: http://www.atlasandboots.com/best-national-parks-in-the-world-by-continent/
Kashgar Sunday Market
I'm looking for 1-2 people to join me on two trips. The first will be April 14-27 through ALL eleven TBT regions in the Southern Caucasus, plus quick side trips to two Turkey regions. I have worked the logistics myself, and have arranged a local tour guide for Azerbaijan/Nakhchivan, and another guide for Georgia/Armenia/Nagorno Karababakh. I'm just looking for travel companions and cost sharing. Most travel will be by car, so there is only room for 2 more. Separate, but back-to-back with the trip to Southern Caucasus, on April 27-May 15 I have arranged with Dmitry Lemeshev of Caucasus Explorer (www.caucasus-explorer.com) for a trip through ALL TBT regions of the North (Russia) Caucasus and some beyond that. This will include Abkhazia, Crimea, Rostov-on-Don, and all the regions from there eastward to the Caspian Sea, including South Ossetia, Inigushetia, Chechnya and Dagestan. As with the first trip, we are looking for another 1-3 people to go along. If you haven't yet read the most recent TBT electronic newsletter, check out the interview with Dmitry. This will be an unbelievable experience. If you are interested in the South Caucasus trip, contact me at email@example.com. If you are interested in the Russian Caucasus trip, contact Dmitry. But hurry, because as Dmitry mentioned in his interview, getting visas and border-area permits takes a lot of time. I hope to have you join one or both of these trips.
Oleg Klymentyev Hi Paul, Please be advised that the only LEGAL way to visit Crimea is through Ukraine, where you'd have to obtain a special permit (see: http://mfa.gov.ua/en/consular-affairs/entering-ukraine/visa-requirements-for-foreigners ). There might be the same case with Abkhazia and South Ossetia - in relation to Georgia. All three regions mentioned are temporarily occupied by Russian Federation.
An idea for a new TBT Series --- All TBT regions in, or at least partially inside (north) of the Arctic Circle. I think there would be around 30 of them. Not a big number, but some of the most difficult regions to visit.
Dear Admins, what about MOUNTAINS OF THE WORLD?
TBT Official Dear Dietmar, we think about introducing the list of mountains. Our main concern is what should constitute a visit - seeing a mountain or climbing it, or something in-between.
Dietmar Cerjak Of course climbing, or as a minimum seriously to have tried it!
Michael Runkel I think this a travel sight. Mountain climbing would exceed it...
Dietmar Cerjak Mountains were always a very important part of my travellings, like as islands too ;-)
Tom Wong Maybe hike at least 1 hour on the trail?
Dear TBT Admins,
As you are updating and expanding your Series lists (which is appreciated), please watch for duplicates, like in Landmarks - Switzerland:
- Chateau de Chillon, Montreux (French name)
- Montreux - Chillon Castle (English name)
Also in Landmarks (USA): National Museum of National History (Washington DC) - it was already fixed in Museums Series to: NATURAL History.
If you are still compiling the Landmarks list, take a few from Ukraine for consideration:
- Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi fortress;
- Kamianets-Podilskyi Castle;
- Khotyn Fortress;
- Odesa Opera Theater...
And by the way, if you are still thinking of other possible Series - how about Theaters? But only those with universal appeal, where the audience does not have to know the language, like: Opera, Music Theater, Dance?..
Thanks for your consideration!
TBT Official Dear Oleg, we deleted duplicated Chillon and changed the Washington museum name. Thank you again for your work. As regards landmarks, we indeed want to expand the list to 1281 pieces, so we will consider your tips for Ukraine. We also consider new lists and Theaters may be one of them.
Dear TBT Admins,
Thanks for checking the wall and making updates!
Please note a couple of typos in American Cities - USA:
- Louisville (KT) -> KY (for Kentucky)
- Norfolk (A) -> VA (for Virginia)
Also, for some reason the Russian city of Tyumen is listed twice - in Australasian section and in European. It is located in Asia - please remove it from Europe. :)
Thanks again for all your hard work,
TBT Official Done! We replaced Tyumen with Sterlitamak, the biggest Russian (European) city not recognized on the list.
Oleg Klymentyev Great! Now, are you sure there are TWO Sterlitamak's in European Russia - because it's what I see on my list?.. :)
TBT Official Indeed, second Sterlitamak is now removed :)
Dear TBT Admins,
On your new Museums Series, under the United States, there is an entry for "Guggenheim Museum, New York", and another one for "Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York". Does not it look like a duplicate? :) Please check.
TBT Official Dear Oleg, thank you for pointing out the mistakes. We made changes as suggested.
Dear TBT Admins,
On your new Museums Series there is one in the USA called "American Museum of National History, New York". Did you mean NATURAL History? Please check.
Thanks for all your dedicated hard work!
Oleg Klymentyev There might be a similar issue with "National Museum of National History, Washington D.C.". Please check. Thanks! OK.
Hi TBT admins,
please make for us a widget to display visited countries/regions on a gif/png map, to post to our blogs. Links from widgets will lead to our profiles on TBT.com so you'll get more direct traffic and higher Google page ranks (and more search traffic) in exchange.
TBT Official Dear Dmitry, thank you for your suggestion. This is a great idea and, although we cannot promise to do that, for sure we will discuss it with our IT support.
Since you do not seem to respond to messages sent through "Contact us" page, I hope you at least read posts here. There is an error on your new XL list: Cape Hatteras (South Carolina). Cape Hatteras is located in North Carolina. Please correct.
TBT Official Dear Oleg, you are right, Cape Hatteras is in North Carolina - we made a correction to XL list. Thank you for pointing out the mistake and our apologies for not replying earlier. Best regards, TBT Team
i will go to nordcypria in dezember

I will be doing the Pamir Highway next July ('17). Looking for travel companions.
