If you could go ANYWHERE where would it be?

I want to go to Egypt. I am so obsessed with it. I just need to save some $$$$$.

I'd go to Perth, because one of my most wonderful friends lives there and I haven't seen her in 3 years, then I'd go, with her, to New Zealand.

Btw, I've been to Egypt and let me tell you--a camel is BUMPY!!! My first one was the most uncomfortable thing I have ever been forced to endure--I felt like I was precariously balanced at the tip of the mast of a small fishing vessel in a really HOT, really DRY storm. The second was actually somewhat comfy (Had a canopy and a windscreen), but I felt like the whole carriage and I were going to go toppling off its back at any moment so I couldn't relax :P It's not so much "bumpy" as...I don't know the word for it...violently rocked and bounced back and forth?

I would love to go to Australia. I've always been intrigued by the country, but now that I know someone there I REALLY want to go lol. I'm going to one day! Mark my word =)

..... but if I had the energy and vigor to travel I would go to Vietnam or Spain. Those would be my top 2 choices.

I want to go everywhere!! I really want to travel the world. Egypt and Australia are tied for my number 1 spot.

Chad went to Egypt in 2009 for a month...now he's decided that he has seen it and doesn't want to go again.

I seriously wanted to smack him, he knows how badly I want to see the pyramids.... I told him that I'm going whether he comes or not because I've always been obsessed with ancient Egypt. I've watched so many shows about it and seen multiple museum exhibits every time they come through Chicago.

New Zealand (again - I went for 2 weeks when I was 16 and I loved it), Ireland, Scotland, England and Morocco.

We're in the (long) process of moving to Australia right now, which is the ONLY reason it's not on my list :)

Ha well Katherine we can go together I would really like to go to Egypt myself…since the 5th grade.
But I also want to go to Europe

i want to live in Australia.

I would love to visit Scotland, my grandfather is from there, it would be nice to find my distant relatives.

This may seem sad but nowhere, I am a total homebody. I enjoy visiting my family but I swear even just going to England gives me the shakes.

I love Scotland, I love everything about it, for me my heart (and the rest of me) belongs here.

Just to add, I know this sounds really weird, my husband thinks it's hilarious...if I fall asleep travelling home from England (where my husbands family is) I jolt awake just after crossing the border :)

The shorter list would be places I wouldn't go. I'd travel like mad if I could.

Where would I go? (In no order of priority):
New Zealand, Fiji, Hawaii, Argentina, Morocco, Vietnam, India, Scotland, Ireland, France, Italy, Portugal, Turkey, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Austria, Tunisia, Croatia, and of course, the parts of Canada that I haven't seen yet!!!

Hahaha @ Jennifer about horse riding. I've been riding horses since I was 8 (although admittedly I haven't been on one in a while), and yes, the bigger horses ARE more comfortable to ride, especially if they have that lovely lope. In my experience, they also tend to have a nicer nature (in general).

Katherine, I want to go to Egypt too. It is on our list. My hubby has been, before I met him. He is keen to go again.

LOL, hubby and I were just discussing this tonight. We are deciding between a cruise on the Danube, and a Canadian/Alaskan cruise (plus extra time in those places) right at this moment. We are placing pictures on our fridge, and that is what we are working towards for ourselves (kid free).

And I always laugh when I hear of the people who won't come to Australia because of the snakes and spiders!! Seriously, I haven't seen a snake in a LONG time. I think the last time was a couple of years ago when I ran over one on the highway. Spiders? Yes, we have a few of them, but no more than anyone else. No-one has died from a spider bite in decades. If it is any consolation, I am a country girl, I am almost 42, and I have NEVER been bitten by a spider. Neither has anyone I know.

Very amusing that people are so in fear it will prevent them visiting one of the most unique countries in the world. ESPECIALLY when you come from a country where there are wolves, bears, rattlesnakes, guns, earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes and more......

Daniela, snakes are only in the bush in Aus. I have only seen 2 in my entire life and I live near the bush for most of my life.
I want to visit Spain, Cyprus, Venice, New York and Vegas.
Camels are horrible to ride btw.

Around Australia. I'd love to visit the northern territory. My parents took us around the country when I was 3 so I have hardly any memories. I have NO desire to go overseas. At all.

[deleted account]

Oh - and I'm dying to go to that nice place down the beach - without toddler but with a nice book. Priceless.

[deleted account]

Alaska. Wanted to go there forever. Never ever Australia. Way too many snakes. Phobias can have annoying side-effects...

I'd love to see the old castles in Scotland. South Africa has always been on my top ten as well. Australia I'd love to go too.

I actually *would think* riding a camel isn't near as bumpy as riding a horse. I took equestrian lessons as a teen and found the smaller the horse the more bumpy the ride. Bigger horses were like riding a couch. I wonder if my theory holds up.

Katherine - posted on 08/20/2011




Lol I heard they're really bumpy. No shock system. Italy and Scotland would be another place, oh and S,. Africa.

Italy! I'm obsessed with the ancient Romans. And the mediteranian looks absolutely gorgeous. Greece looks pretty amazing too.
I think Egypt would be pretty cool too! But only if I can ride a camel.
