    When ı compare my travels ,ı can say the most memorable place for me is to visit Poland for studying.Thanks to Erasmus programme, ı had a chance to see many places . That's why ı spent most of my time there and integrating with the cultures and friends.After having great time, ı remembered how ı had cried in my returning owing to leaving from my friends. The development of railway system, protecting their history alive at museums , the athmosphere of the environment and in Krakow ,historical buildings with architectural sides were another factors to have an impact on my.However, it is easy to see historical places and visiting some places in every country, But for me when somebody goes to abroad ıf they feel themselves like their home and the living condition with people and spending every seconds with happiness. ıt ıs worth to remember as the concept of "memorable place" for me.

      The Erasmus Programme has enabled many people to travel to some wonderful places as part of their studies, I agree that anywhere that feels like a second home is indeed special. many thanks for your answer.

    So many memories - One memory is of watching a man wait for a water taxi in Venice knowing he couldn't just start walking if it didn't turn up ! Or the first time we sailed from Dover to France ....
    More recently flying into the Horizontal Falls in a seaplane was an amazing experience !

    I am a life long Elvis Presley fan-addict. Graceland was an experience of a life time and I finally made it there in May of 2012. The old saying, "Better late than never," certainly holds true. Here's a hub I wrote about it. http://diana-lee.hubpages.com/hub/My-Gr … -Elvis-Fan

      Tanks Diana, i am a big fan of Elvis too, but have never had the honour of going to Graceland, i can imagine it would have been a truly memorable experience though.

      Oh yes, Graceland is a wonderful experience. I am fortunate to live about an hour and a half away, so I plan to go back there very soon.

      We have been to Graceland and sang Paul Simon's song of title in the parking lot before going it - fun!  A memory my kids talk about often.

    Scotland I will say at the moment. I have a few places to visit on my list, and one among them is Scotland, which I did last year. I was spell bound by its amazing beauty. There are still a lot of places in Scotland itself that I would love to visit sometimes! This visit is memorable for Scotland's beauty itself and the time I spent there with a friend.

      Scotland is an amazing coutry, so rugged. My favourite time of year is Autumn when the leaves turn to orange and brown, the scenery is spectacular.

    I love Paris - this is the place I would like to live in. Here is more about it: http://mrcoleman.hubpages.com/hub/Flats … nts-offers
    But there is another country that made a huge impression on me. That was Syria. I've been there for a month. Very exciting experience because of some cultural differences. I'll write about it soon.

    Iceland is the most memorable place I have ever traveled because of its friendly, informative people, its marvelous landscapes including Europes largest glacier, Vatnajokull.

      dommcgposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Iceland is top of my list too, i've always fancied relaxing in the Blue Lagoon for a ffew hours and catching the Northern Lights.

    For me I would have to say it was a seven mile stretch of beach on the Cayman Islands called "HELL"  not sure why they gave it that name, but from my recollection of the beach area resort, from some ten years ago, that it was far from anything associated with hell itself!  Purely spectacular.

    1. Kerdon profile image84
      Kerdonposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      There is a nearby town called Hell - named thus because when the first 'western' explorers visited the area, they were struck by the jagged rock formations and remarked "This mist be what Hell is like!"
      Postcards from here are stampled "Hell"

      Kerdon:

      Thank you for providing the feedback in reference to my previous travel post about that place called Hell on Cayman Islands.  Very interesting about those first western explorers and there encounters with the jagged rock formations.

    The most memorable place I have visited is the Jenolan Caves in Australia. There's something just so surreal about being way down in the earth and being privileged to witness such a beautiful sight. Very humbling experience, indeed.

    Have a happy day smile

      Thanks Kerry, when travelling Mexico i visited many Ceynotes, these are entrances to an underground river system that travels for thoudands of miles around the Mexican coast, swimming in these was one of the most amazing things i have ever done.

    Two places (I can't decide which is more memorable!)
    (1) Masai Mara in Kenya - we did a baloon flight over the plains at dawn and it was majestic and fabulous. So serene.
    (2) Enonteikio in northern Finland - we took the kids to lapland just before Christmas a few years back and I can vivdly remember standing in the forest in the snow around a roaring campfire at 11am (in the dark!) drinking hot chololate and everyone softly singing Silent Night. Beautiful!

      Just thought of a third place! - The Geiranger Fjord in Norway - wow, talk about spectacular!

      dommcgposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      I have often considered a cruise of the Norweigen Fjords as the photos i have seen have been stunning, but reckon they would be better in summer. Does it get too chilly for a cruise in the winter months?

      dommcg, we were there in July 2012 and it was about 15 to 16 degrees Celsius. I'd say the Winters are very cold!

    The Parthenon in Greece.  The history standing in front of you is overwhelming in addition to trying to take in all the influences the Greeks have had on the modern world from their ancient years.

    I am fortunate to be quite well traveled and each country that I visited has its own memorable places.  However, if I have to single out one memorable place it has to be the splendour of the Vic Falls in Zimbabwe.  This waterfall is magnificent and even though I have also visited here several times, I am always in awe about this natural wonder.

      I would love to visit the Victoria Falls, unfortunately I didn't have the time to visit when i was in Africa. many thanks for your answer.

    I have traveled to more than 30 countries, island nations, and island dependencies.

    The most memorable place I have ever visited is 150 miles north of the Arctic Circle, the location where Sweden, Finland, and Norway meet in Lake Goldajärvi (Lake Koltajauri).

    The location is known by the following names:

    * Three-Country Cairn (English)
    * Treriksröset (Swedish)
    * Kolmen valtakunnan rajapyykki (Finnish)
    * Treriksrøysa (Norwegian)

    I wrote an article about traveling from Stockholm, Sweden to this location...

    Vancouver, BC. I love the forest within the city and the whale in an aquarium. Met some countrymen and some interesting girls too.

    For me its the Crystal Cave in Baguio City.  There is an underground spring and a tall tale that if you can walk from start to finish without slipping your wish will come true.  I wish 3 different things and I slip 3 times coincidence ? smile

    The most memorable place I have been is Sperlonga, Italy.  It is a very small town about halfway between Rome and Naples.  I went in October, so there was no one in the town.  Everything shuts down for the winter.  All of the beach umbrellas are pulled in, the shops close down, and the amusement rides side like idle skeletons. 

    My best friend and I wove our way up the small hillside of homes and found a church that was carved into the hill.  It had two little pews in it, and was only big enough for about 4 people.  Then we headed down to the beach, where we were the only souls, except for an older couple who we chatted with. 

    The Mediterranean was so beautiful.  It was clear, with soft waves, and beautiful foothills all around.  There were no other people as far as the eye could see.  I didn't feel like a tourist, I felt like an explorer.  It's a place I wouldn't mind settling down in.
