    If you could travel anywhere in the world for one  week, all expenses paid for, where would you go?

    Paris. Where else. Or Florence. Paris is first choice.

    Italy the food is good, lifestyle is smoothing and exploring the sites

      Traffic's murder, though, but it's almost worth getting run over for when you see what's on offer on the menu..

    I would like to visit the United States of America because I have never been there. I would like to go where the Grand Canyon is.

      If you've a head for heights why not Niagara and the ESB in the Big Apple,or any one of these skyscrapers. For my money I'd follow the route they used for the film 'Deliverance' - and take your banjo.

      Keep the penguins company, eh? Lots of Orca in the sea as well. There's a valley in the middle of the continent where there's no snow, but you'd need a chopper to get there.

    An Alaskan cruise or Hawaii. :0)...if the all-expense-paid part includes my husband and daughter, too.

      Which way round? Alaska first to get chilled out and then Hawaii to get warmed up again? - Lots of nubile young women, but watch out for their boyfriends or dads!

    Are you only asking about the present - or is it possible that the past and future included?

    The Galapagos Islands - here the wildlife is unique but also unafraid of humans, so one can get really close to take photographs. Therefore, it is one of the best places in the world for nature photography, (two of my interests), and somewhere one can 'do' in a week. But - it's also very expensive, so the 'all expenses paid' tag makes it Number One for me!

      Why not ? - Charles Darwin's favourite haunt off Ecuador. Boobies and ocean-going Iguanas - also featured in 'Master and Commander'

    Starting off with the ferry crossing from Hull or Felixstowe to Esbjerg, look around from north to south in Jylland (Jutland), maybe down as far as Flensburg, (which was Danish territory until the Prussians marched into the    area in 1865) and have a look at what's left of Hedeby.
    From Jylland to Fyn (Funen) to look around Odense before going on to Sjaelland (Sealand/Zealand), to Roskilde for a look at the ancient capitals Lejre and Hroarskilde (the original Roskilde, see Saga of Hrolf Kraki).
    If funds allow, cross to Bornholm (orig. Borgundarholm, where the Burgundians came from), and on to SW Sweden to look around Skaane, Halland and Gotaland, originally part of the Kingdom of Denmark until the later middle ages.
    A look at southern Norway before going on to the Faeroerne/Foeroyar (Faeroes). They still live in homes their great ancestors built with stone walls and turf rooves as they did on Orkney, Sjetland (Shetland) and Ljodhus (Lewis) before returning via Katanes (Caithness) and Sudrland (Sutherland).
    Cork, Dublin, Limerick, Waterford and Wexford were founded by the Danes in the 10th Century, and the trip finishes at Jorvik (York) with a visit to the Jorvik Viking Centre and the Jorvik Viking Festival in mid-February.

      It would probably take more like ten days to a fortnight.

    Well I will love to go to Europe, don't know which country of Europe I would love to visit the most, probably instead I would love to travel throughout Europe and see all of the friends I have made and cannot see due to living in another continent.

    I would love to stay in a castle and explore the weird side of London, go to some ghost tours, go to stone hedge and then finish it off with a concert of my favorite band Placebo and then go shopping and bring back European clothing.

      There is a ghost tour in York, where you're supposed to be able to see Roman soldiers marching; there's a Jack The Ripper Tour in Whitechapel, just east of the City of London; nobody's grown a stone hedge yet, but there's a Stonehenge in Wiltshire

    England. One day I plan to go there and see all of the historical sites as well as go on a literary tour.

      We've got enough historical sites in one county, Yorkshire, to keep you busy for the whole of your hols. It'd take a lifetime to get round all of them in England, let alone the rest of the UK. Take a year off!

    I would go to Laos as I have never been. The flight is expensive and it would be great to have a week there all expenses paid. I have been too Thailand but never did get a chance to go.
