this is my second year of buying this calendar. I keep it at work, right by my chair, and look at the beautiful, colorful photos (and read the interesting tidbits about the place pictured). An added bonus -- you get to choose to receive a second page-a-day calendar free by e-mail, just enter the special code found inside this calendar.
Highly recommended.

Amazing, vibrant, colorful photographs of places you will find yourself wanting to visit. I couldn't bring myself to throw out my 2009 1,000 Places calendar because I can't see throwing out those gorgeous pictures. I am determined to come up with an art project for them. I would have given this five stars if it had the miniature month-before and month-after feature that most standard calendars have.

This is the 2nd year I've bought this for my husband. Even my 5 year old gets so excited to see each page and the fun and exotic places we could possibly travel to.

1000 Places to See Before You Die Page-A-Day Calendar features 313 pages full color photographs of amazing destinations. In addition to pictures, it also furnishes delightful quizzes, quotes, and trivia.

For example: a nightscape picture of Gateway Arch in St. Louis adorns Saturday 2 January & Sunday 3 January, 2010 page (weekend is combined on one page). Above it, this multiple-choice question is provided:

Soaring 630 feet above the Mississippi River, the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri, is the masterful work of which well known architect?
a) Alvar Aalto b) Santiago Calatrava c) I.M. Pei d) Eero Saarinen

It's a great fun to start a day realizing that our world is full of beautiful places. Makes me want to pack my bag and go there.

By the way, this answer to above question is provided on its back page:

d, Eero Saarinen. The arch was unveiled in 1965 and commemorates the 1803 Louisiana Purchase of vast Midwestern lands from France.

I had one of these calendars last year at work. It has been a great way to start the work day by taking a few seconds to change the page and see if it was somewhere that I had already traveled to or some beautiful new place that I may never arrive to and enjoy other than the photo. Have shared with my co-workers from time to time. The weekly quiz is fun to polish geography and history skills. Would love to travel and this is my Walter Mitty.

I am loving this calendar! The pictures are absolutely beautiful. The information about each place is interesting and informative. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I find that the plastic holder for the calendar is very unstable and I have to have it leaning up against something so it won't continue to fall down. But that annoyance is worth it, because this is the nicest page-a-day calendar I have had.

I bought this so I could see good pictures of places which I might want to travel to in the future. It provides this, and even includes a bit of information about the places it shows, so you don't just have a picture and a name. I also use it for drawing/painting, and it has a good mixture of photos, that are well suited for those purposes.

I am really enjoying this calendar. Each day brings a new color photograph of yet another place to add to my list of places to visit. And I'm learning too!
