Essential Travel Experience #34 — Visit a Travel Icon

   There are some tourist attractions which are easily recognized by almost everyone. They have become the icons of travel and are must-sees for all who love traveling. I am trying to visit them all, and we have certainly seen most of them, but Lee and I are both running out of time.

   Here is a collection of these icons that we have accumulated thus far.
