    What do you love about the state? What did you do or  where did you go for entertainment?

      I recently moved from Kansas to New York. We drove through, so there were lot of stops along the way. When we got to New York, our first stop was the Niagara Falls. It was freezing, as it was only the beginning of February. But, I cannot even properly describe how beautiful it was. Even half frozen and my fingers being numb, it was wonderful. smile

    2 years ago I went to Indianapolis for GenCon 2011, and that was the most fun I've had in almost a decade (Otakon 2003 and 2004 in Baltimore). And then last year, I went to Emerald Isle in North Carolina for about a week. And then in 2005 and 2006, I went to New York City three times (twice for Drama class, once for the Senior Trip) and saw Phantom of the Opera once and Wicked twice.

    And that's it. I don't leave PA much, but I do occasionally make it out.

      I lived 10 minutes from Emerald Isle until last year. Small world. smile

    I drove from NC to ND twice last year.
    I grew up in ND, and I love the solitude and the fishing. I caught a lot of walleye last year. smile

    When I hear the word state, my first thought is assume the reference is to a  "Member State" of the European Union.

    In that context, I've been to Italy, Ireland and Spain reasonably recently.

    My travel to Italy consisted of several trips I had to make to Rome. I hate Rome with a passion and only went because it was my duty to go. I would be happy never to see Rome again. On the other hand, I would leap at the chance to go back to Sienna or Florence, as well as to explore Tuscany and Sicily.

    Ireland was another obligatory visit I had to make, this time to Dublin, but I like the city as well, so had a good time. This time round, I visited the National Library to see the display of Yeats' Golden Dawn ritual tools, plus I was shown round a beautiful period house, which is not normally open to the public. Unfortunately, I developed a lurgy towards the end of my stay, which meant a planned evening of going round pubs featuring live traditional music did not take place.

    My visit to Spain was actually to Tenerife, where I met hubber Green Bard/Tenerife Islander, who showed me some of the delights of the island, including the dragon tree http://tenerifeislander.hubpages.com/hu … aena-draco

    I was in Croatia, it's neighbouring countrey, for some holiday last year (Korcula Island) and for business this year (Transited Adriatic coast).
    Serbia is also a neighbour so it's close to check what's happening there. I was there on a small ceremony (business) and it was very pleasant stay.
    In Germany I was on my regular business trip.

    Hej, Baja2013, bok!

    Dobrodošli! Vidim da ste iz Bosne.

    I lived in Zagreb 1979-1984. One year, we took a trip into Bosnia, going to Mostar and all around. Somewhere, I had some crna halva, which was soooo good! I've never found it again anywhere. Unfortunately, our car broke down and we had to get towed back to Zagreb, which meant I never got to see Sarajevo sad

    Listening to the radio in Zagreb, I fell in love with Bosnian music. If I have to choose favourites, it would have to be Himzo Polovina singing Hasin Aga sevdah (Što te nema) and Emina.

    In the last three years I've visited Sri Lanka and Kefalonia. Loved Sri Lanka, my daughter and I saw a great deal of the country. We went on Safari, sampled some fantastic food, chilled out on some lovely beaches and visited some really remote places, we learnt so much about Sri-Lankan culture too.

    I found a cheap break to Kefalonia, and really wasn't expecting too much, just a nice break. But actually, it was lovely. My daughter, son and I stayed in a really pretty, remote little village. The locals were still using donkeys as their main means of transportation! It was pretty much how I'd expect a Greek Ireland would have been decades ago. But, it was too hot. There was only so much walking and exploring you could do without feeling exhausted.

    In the past year I've been to Colorado -- Durango in the southwest corner and Boulder twice.
    I liked Durango a lot. Quaint. Lots of one-of-a-kind shops. No malls.
    Boulder underwhelmed me. Probably because everyone told me "Oh, you'll LOVE Boulder."

    I went to Connecticut by way of Long Island. Danbury area. Very close to Newtown.
    CT to me is gorgeous during any season, especially fall foliage.
    BTW, Hurricane Sandy hit the region 3 weeks later!

    And I just got back from Hawaii. The Big Island. Loved the slower pace and super friendly people.

    Otherwise, I don't go out of California much. It's like 6 states in one!
