1000 Places to See.....

When you visit a new place, do you travel with a "hit list" of all the attractions you want to see? Museums, churches, statues, memorials, architecture, gardens.... and the list goes on!

But have you ever visited a place that makes you feel like you need to wash your hands afterwards? If not, I have one for you! One that I guarantee will make you say "GROSS" and grab the hand-sanitizer out of your purse!    But even though it is totally gross, it is one of those things you just HAVE to go and see if you are in the area! I am talking about none other than                            Seattle's Famous/Infamous GUM WALL!
It was actually named one of the top 5 GERMIEST Tourist Attractions in 2009, so germaphobes should definitely mark this one off their list!  

So the only question that remains is-- if you visited Seattle's Gum Wall, would you be daring enough to leave your own contribution knowing that means that you MIGHT end up touching someone else's chewed up gum! This gives a whole new meaning to ABC Gum!

I suppose it's better than a booger wall. And, yes. I would add my gum - with a stick.

Actually, although it sounds awful it is kind of pretty. And don't worry, all those germs would have died ages ago!

As an ex-inhabitant of Seattle I can say, in all honesty, I have not only been to the gum wall, but also contributed with some of my best girlfriends from high school.

It is even grosser in person, let me assure you.
