    Where would you travel?

    If you had an unlimited budget and you got the chance to pick just ONE country to spend a week in, where would you want to go and why?

    Doesn't Europe count as one country?  I mean, all of the countries are so small that they kind of look more like states... but anyway, I would probably choose France.  Half the week in Paris, and the rest of it touring the countryside.  Couldn't get much better!

      Very interesting, collegatariat! My best friend went to Paris last summer and she told me when she came back - it really IS as gorgeous as everyone says!

    India will be the best option to choose if you have more time to spend, about at least 2 to 3 months. However if you are interested in nature entirely you can simply visit places like Srilanka. In case you are fond of Architecture and man made structure Greece, France, Italy  can also be good options. If you are interested to have fun with all your money Las Vegas or Hongkong, Singapore and Thailand Trip would be good. If you want to Rest with all the amenities and about 7 servants around you, Burj-Al-Arab is The Best. Now its upto you what are you looking for; Fun, Peace, Nature or Man-Made Structures.

      Wow - you gave me lots of good ideas! I'd love to visit India or Greece, although right now my #1 desired place to travel to is Istanbul, Turkey!

    I would go to Burma (Myanmar).  I have read so many interesting things about the different ethnic groups in this country.  I would like to experience first hand the colorful people and sights in such places as the Shan State and Kachin State.

      Burma looks so stunningly gorgeous! I'd love to visit there. My great aunt went there a few months ago and said it's so peaceful and beautiful, and not a lot of tourists choose to go there!

      I am dying to see the UK! My mother studied abroad there in college and always whips out little bragging stories - "Oh, when I was at Westminster Abbey..." wink

    I think Antarctica has go to be up there, it's one of the last untouched places on earth and although expensive would certainly be an amazing adventure!

      Ooh, Antarctica... I never even thought about that as a travel destination. I think it would be too cold for me, but I'm sure it is absolutely stunning! (Plus - you wouldn't have to deal with a bunch of tourists! Ha!)

    I would like to go to Australia, although time is an issue. Other smaller countries I would like to visit are Monaco, Croatia, Russia, Poland, China, Japan. Maybe a week is better for a small country.

      Ooh, Monaco would be amazing... I'd love to go just about anywhere in the world for a week, if money was no issue! smile

    Jamaica is our pic!  We have been there twice and are planning a third visit in September.  The weather is great and the people are so friendly and happy to help you!  We stay at adult only(no children) all inclusive resorts and love traveling that way as well.

      I love Jamaica! I was there just for a day when we went on a cruise a few summers ago (granted - we were limited to the tourist areas close to the harbor...) but we climbed Dunn's River Falls!

      Yes, we climbed the falls as well!  We went with another couple and had a blast!  We are planning on doing the Martha Brae rafting when we return!

    Disneyland.

    That is what my wife always wanted in her life. She had been there for 12 times and yet she still wants to go.

    It is seeing those actors, actress and the fun that we can get from the place makes it the most wonderful place to visit.

      I know absolutely nothing about Croatia, so I'll definitely need to do some googling on that one! Ah, Turkey! That's my number one!! smile

    Egypt as I've always felt an affinity with the Ancient Egyptians. To visit Giza, Karnak, Luxor, Abu-Simbel and the Valley of the Kings would be awesome.

      I don't know all that much about Egypt. I know my grandmother went there and LOVED it!
