Default Where would you like to travel to?

So where would you like to travel to?

I think we should split the question into two parts:

A) Where would you like to travel to that you could realistically afford?

B) Where would you like to travel to if you had lots of time and money to spare?

I have never gotten a chance to go to Europe. I have always wanted to go but never had a good opportunity. Now I'm afraid I probably won't got at least until my children are much older.

A) Pretty much no where outside the US...but I'll be going Colorado for Thanksgiving and Chicago for Christmas.

B) This list could go on forever....I like going anywhere I would make a point to visit every country in the world if I money and time were not an issue.

This is one of my all-time favorite fantasy vacation plans too.

Default Re: Where would you like to travel to?

Too many years of airplanes, sailboats, restaurants and hotels has left me with little to no desire for long-range travel. I've been to a lot of places on all the continents (never made it to Mainland China or Russia), all the US states except Alaska and Iraq and my idea of travel at this point in time is our annual sojourn to Santa Barbara for pampering purposes. Fortunately my wife has also been to most of Europe, spent time there and we generally agree there aren't too many places we'd care to repeat. The newness and adventure of a first-time visit to other countries/cities is difficult to regenerate on a repeat visit.

If a long trip did happen to necessitate itself, I'd hock the family silver to ensure it was first class, a difficult habit to break. Considering USD PPP, many regular US travelers we know have sharply reduced their regular pleasure travel.

A) Medellin, Colombia, and other parts of Latin America. I've hit a lot of them, but I might try to do a quick trip when I graduate too. I would like to end up living and working in Latin America too.

B) Everywhere ever, but mostly the Middle East and North Africa and Eastern Europe.

I'd like to do that Orient Express train trip from Paris to Istanbul. Probably cost a bundle to do it first class, but I'd love to do it.

I'd also like to go to Greece just to see the geography and soak up some of the history.

Cross Australia and cross South America (the latter diagonally) is on my extended list.

On the more casual list is Italy, which for some strange reason always escapes my plans as I usually end up in Spain, France or Greece instead (when it comes to the Mediterranian, that is).

A). I'd like to travel through the northern and northwest US to visit places like the Badlands in South Dakota, Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone, and various parks and reserves in Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. I've never been to any of those places.

B). If money and time were no option, I'd take a year or two off and tour as much of the world as possible. I've been to Europe many times, so I'd probably focus on Asia, Oceania, Africa, and South America. Except for brief jaunt into Sault St. Marie when I was a kid, I've never really travelled in Canada either, so that would also be on the list.
