Watching the News is so full of " Heavy Stories" The chaos in Egypt, Australia being alternativly being blown around, drowned and going up in flames depending what part of the continent you are on. Maybe it time for something light hearted..

If you could go any where in the world where would you go and why?
Personally I am mad about History so I would go anywhere there is history, art museums. But the one place in the world I dream of going is to ST Petersburg Russia, I would love to see the city that Peter the Great invisaged and built on a swap where some of the greatest historical figures come from. Cathrine the Great, the Romanovs. England and Wales for the same reason.
Then I would make the trip to Alaska to see the Northern Lights. That must be something to see.

We went on a FABO FABBBO trip last year for 11 weeks with the kids to Switzerland and France mostly staying with relatives. It was so much more fantastic than I could have imagined - the mountains were beautiful, the museums and castles and ruins fascinating... life itself was so different. Never a dull moment. The kids were very excited about everything and since coming back my 8 year old is always saying how he just wants to go back to Europe and life is too boring here.

PS Shannen where are you that you want to get away from?

Mary, I'm on Oahu!

Where on the Island do you live? Send me a pm if you want to tell me in private.



Edit: Going on a one day vacation tomorrow, girls day/night out at the Ala Moana Hotel down in Waikiki. Hot tub, sauna and spa, then some clubbing and back home on Sunday before the Super bowl!

Hey, Iris Purcell, I live in Hawaii too, which island are you on? I'm on Oahu in Honolulu. If you're going to be living here much longer we should do a beach day!

I have so many places still on my list I can't name them all. We'll get there eventually. We just got back from New Zealand (our second trip there) and I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Loureen, my parents are off to Brazil this year I think (maybe it's next years trip, I'm not sure). Those two have travelled to so many places, they inspire me :) I imagine they are considering themselves lucky at the moment, because they did Egypt late last year, before all the shit started.

Would go back to Thailand and Ireland in a a heartbeat. Planning a trip to England for December to spend Christmas with my husbands brother. Actually I would love to see a lot more of South Africa and would like to look at Malta too.

I would have said Rome, Ireland, or India 5 minutes ago but after hearing somebody's (I forgot who wrote it, sorry) explanation of Dordogne... THAT"S where I wanna go!

I've been to the Carribbean including Jamaica it was the most breath taking scenes I have ever seen in all of my life. I would give my left arm to go back. *~*Memories*~* sigh

If I were single and didn't have a kid I'd want to go to egypt. Seriously. Pyramids are cool and all, but I want to see a revolution. I'd also like to see mexico, as well as several middle eastern countries, but am not willing to risk being beheaded. Soooo

Since I have a kid and am not single, I want to see everything in moderately *safe* countries. The UK, sweden, netherlands, spain, italy, greece, czech rep, Ideally I'd like to spend a year just wandering around all of europe and end it with a week in India or Tibet or something. I would encourage my son to do it when he's an adult though. I would have zero issue with him doing that between high school and college. I wish I had. There are a LOT of places I wish I could go.

I'm hoping to be able to meet my to best friends in Egypt next fall when two of us turn 40, and celebrate with style.

The place I always wanted to visit was Hawaii. I'm living there right now and it's heaven.
Soon I'll be moving to Turkey and I'm very excited!

By the by, Scotland is so worth it. I've been there many times and Edinburgh is one of the best spots in world, as far as I'm concerned.

[deleted account]

Australia, New Zealand (I went for 2 weeks when I was 16 and I've been wanting to go back ever since!), Ireland (I want to rent a car and get lost in the country while staying in little bed and breakfast places), Scotland, England, Russia, Belgium (my hubby wants to see where his dad was born), India, my oh my... there are so many more too... I want to travel around the world through my life and I hope someday we can at least go to some of those places! :)

I would very much like to go to Iceland and sit in the hot springs. Japan would be another place and India. I'd love to go to New Zealand, one of my best friends live there now and the pictures are always amazing.

I've always wanted to go to San Fran too, I've never been and I've read so much about it.

I would go to Italy and probably will someday soon. I want to meet the other half of my husband's family who lives down there before they are no longer around. And I want to eat all the yummy foods and drink all the wine that I can :-)

LOL@ Loureen, sounds exactly like what I am looking for.
Although at only 5 feet, I will have to do a lot of neck craning to see their buffness, but as long as they are bearing coconuts full of tasty alcoholic beverages, tis a-okay with me. :) What's that like an 18 hour flight from Canada?

I would love to see New Zealand -- my husband tells me it's absolutely beautiful. I'd also love to see Ireland, Argentina, Vietnam, Hawaii, Costa Rica, and Portugal.

That's the start of my list, anyway. :)

I want to visit my home land, Scotland, and i want to go to Australia because everything seems cooler there.

Hawaii it has always been my dream and the one place I have not got to travel to yet.

[deleted account]

Since studying a lot on Russian history i must say thats one of my top places to visit second would be South Africa.
For a holiday where everything was laid on i'd have to say the Maldives.

I've always wanted to go to India. I don't know why, just because it strikes me as being so incrediably different. I've never been to Europe but I've felt it might be a little too similiar to the US for that to be first on my list.



That said, I was an exchange student in Peru and I stayed in Lima and went on an excursion to Cusco and Machu Picchu for a week and it was utterly amazing. I'd love love love to go back there and try to see the Nasca lines as well, or anywhere in South America, especially Argentina. But yeah, the people in Peru and my host family were so amazing and loving and my first night there they took me out dancing and for drinks (I was only 16 but there was no drinking age) and I never had so much fun in my life or met more friendly people. And btw, if you're blonde... the guys (who are some of the hottest guys on earth) go CRAZY for you! I swear to god I had the worst crush on this guy named Carlos who had PUPLE eyes. Real purple eyes, not contacts. Amazing.



And Africa. I always wanted to go on a Safari and see the animals in their natural habitat.

Anywhere in the south pacific where drinks are served in coconuts by buff young men with too little on their bodies to protect from sun exposure. :)

I'm glad to see others who loved Florence. I've talked to so many people who didn't like it. I think they didn't do it right or something. I LOVED Florence. More than I thought I would. I still think the best thing I saw in Italy was the Colosseum (that is hard to beat), but Florence has really cool character, especially if you wander off the beaten path a bit. Also I noticed a lot of the tourists go to bed too early. The magic happens midnight and later. Hehe. Maybe it's a good thing the tourists are mostly in bed.

I've always wanted to go to Jamaica. And East or South Africa. I'd go back to Morocco in an instant too, loved it there! I'd also love to go to Egypt or Isreal, if only it were safer, and Italy, Spain, and southern France.

I knocked the first two places off my bucket list this summer, Paris and Rome...(mwah Kati). I can't decide which I would like to see next, it's a dead tie between Eastern Europe (Berlin and Prague), the UK, Australia, and Asia. (is that the same as basically saying everywhere? cause I wanna go everywhere ;))

It'll probably be London or Australia next, cause my husband(ish) person lived in each for a year or so and loved them both sooooo...

if it were me...probably Asia

Italy is GORGEOUS and I recommend Florence. For France I loved the Dordogne. Ever see all those castles in fairy tales? That's what the Dordogne region of France looks like. It's like walking around in a fairy tale. Just beautifully breathtaking everywhere.

Costa Rica or Thailand or the Galapagos Islands or South Africa or Australia to start. I'm not too picky. I want to see it all.
