Fellow world travelers? Where have you been, and where do you want to go? Page 1 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
Outside of the U.S, I've been to England, France, Germany, Belgium, Jamaica, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, the Cayman Islands, and Mexico. The first three countries I definetly would return to.

I also want to visit some of the Eastern European nations, like Poland and Hungary, and also travel to Russia. In addition, I'd like to see some of the moderate Islamic nations, like Egypt, Jordan, and the U.A.E.

I've been to about 30 countries, I found my last trip (mountain climbing in Bolivia) has temporarily burnt me out from hard travelling, so the next trip may be a little easier (maybe Tahiti?)

Hi Peripatetic,
I think that the travel bug has been very generous with you.You've been very fortunate to visit all those countries. I love travelling but I don't always have the possibility.
I wonder why you haven't included Argentina .And I don't only mean Buenos Aires (which is the capital but very different from the rest of the country).Some nice places to vist here are :1)The Glacier Perito Moreno in the South and 2) the Iguazú Falls in the northeast among others.
Hope you would like them
regards

Where I want to go:

1. Bay Of Fire, Tasmania . Clear Water, Great Weather, small cottages nestled into the corner of a small fishing town.

2. South Africa: Cape Town, Durban, Kruger National Park and Johannesburg.

3. South America: The Guianas

4. Ireland: The Islands off Ireland: Árainn Mhór, Beginish, Na Blascaodaí, Valentia, Achill.

For now I must dream... I can't wait to make it to all of these places!!!!!!!!!!!

So far I have been to: Paris, Amsterdam, Portugal, Spain, Ibiza, Italy - Rome, Venice, Milan, worked in Greece for 6 months. Emigrated to South Africa lasted only 3 months!, visited Jo'burg, Cape Town, Pretoria. Been to Kenya, Marrakesh, Egypt, Sri Lanka, Cuba and of course NY city and Florida. Loved Brazil and Mexico, I have been to most of these places with my Children so do not be put off taking children overseas they have always been welcomed and coped with all the food combinations, heat, and travelling for long hours.

One day would love to do to the Transiberian express across Russia, And travel round the coast of India, and spend some time in South America.

Plan on seeing the UK when I can no longer travel overseas. Although I am a true Londoner born and bred here I have not seen much of my own country!I believe we have a beautiful country steeped in history, and I guess there is no place like home....

Haven't been to Gatlinburg for quite a few years but have enjoyed several adventures there in the Winter and also in the late Spring when I went to Pigeon Forge and Dollywood. Gatlinburg is such an unusual place, set in the valley as it with a river running through it and a ski lift coming down right in the center of the village... love it.
Was on a 12 day cruise a couple of months ago of Hawaiian Islands, loved Kauai, Maui and the tropicalness of all the islands. Our ship sailed by and turned around to sail by again as we passed the Kilauea Volcano flowing into the sea at 10pm, WOW! Taking my fourth cruise to Mexico in October, new itinerary this time, Sea of Cortez, Topolobampo and LaPaz, haven't been there before. I'd live on a ship if I could, just love that mode of travel now.
I've been to Europe many times, most recently I've traveled to Slovania and Croatia. Venice and Switzerland are by far my most favorite places, Alaska is right up there too.
Have been to Yosemite three times in recent years, what a magnificent park in my own state.
My monthly trip is a visit to Reno, nice to receive comps, enjoy being pampered in a resort atmosphere and lucky to be able to fly there in less than an hour from SFO.
I was a tour coordinator for four years and organized trips for groups now I just do it for me... still looking for that right someone to join me.

OP - here's where I've been:
Galapagos Islands (2008); Barbados (2008)
New Mexico Ballon Fest (2007)
Africa - Botswana (2006) - this was a photo safari for my 50th birthday!
England (2004)

I have at least 80-90 more places I want to check out, they've been added on my Bucket List. The grand finale will be when I retire in Belize or somewhere in the Caribbean!

Hello everyone!

I have been lucky enough to have traveled the continental U.S. In addition to that, I have visited the following countries twice: Germany, Italy, Poland, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Holland, Czech Republic and most of Mexico as well. My next trip will be to England since I've heard its more expensive I am forced to hold on until I can have more money saved before I can actually travel there. There are so many places I would like to travel that there is no end to the list.

Just a few great travel experiences:

- Being at Ta Prohm temple in Angkor at sunset
- Sunset, then sunrise on the Annapurna Range in Nepal
- Having a few beers outside an old mansion on a canal-laced island in the in the Mekong Delta while the tidewaters almost come up to the mansion
- Riding down the World's Most Dangerous Road in Bolivia, descending into the clouds and noting you can't see the bottom of the sheer drop on one side of the road
- Getting to Trannsylvania on the train at night and finding it as gothic and creepy as it is portrayed in the movies
- Buying an antique schimtar in a casbah out in the desert in Morocco
- A technicolor sunset like you've never seen on Mount Kinabalu, Borneo while fighting altitude sickness
- On the top of Huayna Picchu in Peru, watching Macchu Picchu disappear and reappear in the clouds

A couple more I'd like to experience:

- A tall ship
- Hiking in the Karakorum Range in Pakistan, if it ever settles down there
- Spice Islands in Indonesia

Wow some real world travelers here. I am American and have seen much of the U.S. growing up ,my father loved to just take us all over but I always wanted to go to London . I finally got my wish and now every year for the last 4 I go back .I have traveled to Italy - Rome & Florence , Amsterdam , Mexico - Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Cancun, Jamaica , Haiti, Grand Cayman. I have booked my next trip back to London for November and am planning the details for my vacation to Santorini Greece in June 2010. I have friends that ask why all the traveling ? It they ever went they'd never ask again . The things and places and people and food have all been so incredibly interesting and delicious . As long as I can walk and afford it I will keep traveling . As far as England ,you could travel every year and still not see everything there's to see. Beautiful country .

I have visited every continent, and perhaps 40-50 countries, so it is apparent that I did not get it right the first time around so I need to do it all again!

Most memorable spots, for sheer granduer, way aheadof anything in second place, the best spot for sheer first on the list is the Antarctic, favorite cruising spots include Thailand/Malaysia and Indonesia, Chagos Archipelago in the Indian Ocean and Madagascar, most interesting mix of cultures and diversity of population, Suriname.

But everyplace has its own uniqueness,

Regards to all my fellow vagabonds!

I just came back from Germany. I lived in Dresden for 2 years- beautiful city by the way. I was a "Teacher-Tourist" there and took every chance I could to visit other places. In two years I visited Paris, Lyon, Nice- Bruxxells, then Vienna, Zurich, Rome, Berlin, Prague & Stockholm. When you live in Europe you can take little mini vacations- Sometimes we even went just for a weekend. Last summer I visited Croatia and walked the city wall in Dubrovnik at sunset. Two of my favorite trips were to Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic- and El Quseir in Egypt. I am addicted to travel now. I just joined Housecarers.com. I'm thinking about house sitting in France or Germany.
