The island of Hvar, Croatia offers a number of pebbly beaches and crystal-clear water for swimming. Croatia is included for the first time in 1,000 Places to See Before You Die.

Do you dream of visiting the world’s greatest cities, seeing the world’s best attractions and spending a night or two in many of the world’s best hotels and inns? 

Then you probably have a well-worn copy of “1,000 Places To See Before You Die” on your nightstand. The New York Times bestseller by Patricia Schultz was first published in 2003 and is part guide book/part wish list and chock full of tantalizing tidbits about far-off places.

But both the world, and the way we get around it, has changed quite a bit since 2003. So for the new edition being released today, Schultz has updated and rewritten much of the book, adding 200 new entries, 28 additional countries and 600 color photographs. For those who don’t want to carry around a tome that weighs more than 2 pounds, there’s now an iPad app version of the book, with lots of extras.

As the new edition hits the stands, Overhead Bin caught up with Schultz to discuss how she chose new must-see destinations.

I can’t believe it hasn’t been updated since 2003. I wonder if they will stick to 1000 places or make it some other number. Curious what else they will add.
