If money, health, or safety were not factors, where would you like to travel?
Excluding the country in which you live, which country, island nation, or island dependency would be your first choice ... and why?
I'd visit Estonia. From what I've read and seen on the Internet, it's a fascinating and beautiful small country steeped in a very turbulant history. It's also one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world. People can vote via their computers and generally take care of their taxes in minutes. If anyone-- including any government agency-- accesses their private information, they are notified of every occurrence. It is the only country in the world where electric cars are in range of fast-charging energy kiosks. But I'd really like to meet the people, see the country and explore their history first-hand.
Since health factors are an issue regarding travel for me, my travel these days is often the 'virtual' type, and I thoroughly enjoy the plethora of travel-based documentaries and video travelogues. I'm especially drawn to those countries from which I derive my ancestry: Britain, Ireland, Scotland and Austria. (Quite a mix, isn't it? It's not unusual, however, as most of us have similar migrant heritage.)
If, as you suggest, I could physically visit anywhere on the planet and--especially if I could walk a lot while there--I'd still choose those four destinations. In addition, I'd add Italy and France for an extended holiday abroad I could remember for the rest of my life.
Thanks for asking this question as I enjoyed this little exercise in imaginary travel!
In Africa jungles and many places of the world like mountains of India, China.
The untouched rivers having no one there with no crowd or people.
That is a tough question. I suppose I'd be drawn to the 'mother' country. I'd want to see Britain while I can still walk from England into Wales. I'd want to go on a dig too while I was there. Maybe help unearth a Viking or Medieval village...or a Celtic fort. Being the first to see something that had been buried for centuries would be exciting. I'd also like to go to Cornwall to visit the place where Doc Martin was filmed. Not far away you also have your smuggler's caves...fascinating. I'd love to have a beer in a genuine Irish pub in Ireland on Saint Patrick's day and maybe listen to some Joyce being read. I'd like to visit Scotland during the highland games. Definitely Britain in the spring with the spring festivals. I'd love to be seated at The Globe during a performance, say, of Shakespeare's Macbeth. Maybe see what Oxford is really like...
My other destination would be Egypt for a dig hopefully and a look around. Northern Italy for similar reasons. Maybe southern Spain for its exotic architecture. Man! If I had millions would I travel. Australian here! We're born with itchy feet. Travel is in our blood.
So true ! I was born in Wales, Grew up in NZ, Lived years in Aussie, In Spain at moment ! All of UK is awesome to explore ! We loved Ireland, Orkney Islands ++++++ !
i have been to Bali and the USA but that's it. I haven't had the money to travel for some time now. I hear there are some impressive caves worth exploring in Wales.
I would love to go to visit Israel. I would love to see the ancient history of the place. I would love to study their customs and talk with them about their hope for the future as a nation. Of course the food would be another incentive for me to visit this country. If only I had the money and it were a safer time to visit.
I think I would like to hike the Camino de Santiago across the northern trail of Spain. (From Pamplona to Santiago de Compostela) That is the one part of Spain I have not seen, so it would be a new experience for me. I have been to Santiago de Compostela and seen St. James' bones (or what they say are St. James' bones). But, I would love to hike this route and meet the different Spanish/Basque people and make my pilgrimage to St. James. I think it would be a very spiritual experience for me.
I would definitely visit Israel. I know many Christians who've gone there to see all of the locations related to Jesus' life and think it would be an awesome thing to do.
I would travel to Basque country in Spain. Few people know about it. It has a rich, yet mysterious history. They have their own unique language and ethnicity. Their country is stunningly beautiful. They are nestled in northern Spain region bordering the Atlantic ocean and france, isolated in the western foothills of the Pyrenees mountains. The beauty is quite remarkable. They are also well known for their fine and unique cuisine. They the oldest ethnic group on the European continent. I would give anything to go. I have friends who went this past summer and they were overwhelmed with it's beauty and uniqueness.
I would love to visit Australia and drive down the Great Ocean Road, visit Sydney Harbor, visit the countryside in Perth and many many more things to do ...
Austria. I had traveled to this country before, but I simply could not have enough of its beautiful sights, structures, culture, and arts.
Finland, Japan, Egypt, the U.S. desert southwest, Brazil...you know, I'd like to be able to just go anywhere, really. Pennsylvania is the antithesis of interesting.
I have always wanted to visit Egypt.
The history of Egypt fascinates me. I would like to take part in a dig in the hope of unearthing some unfound mummy or artefact.
I got a chance to visit Europe once with my husband for one week. We stayed in Brussels and saw Bruge and Luxembourg for short day trips. I would love to see some other places in Europe and visit some of the friends I have made online.
I also would love to see Australia. My parents visited there and loved it. Of course I have met people there as well.
We have visited quite a few countries in Europe, Loved Ireland, UK. America ,Alaska Canada.
I would love to visit Iceland, Croatia and more of Eastern Europe as well as go on a safari to Africa. Egypt, We are enjoying Spain right now ! There are so many amazing places to explore ~ I am hoping to do a cruise to Norway next April...
Bhutan. That is where I want to go. I had a chance once but I just couldn't do it. I like to imagine myself on top of those mountains.
I'd like to go back to Thailand. This time, I'd like to bring my husband with me. Then, I could show him the places I have been to when I was working there.

In exactly a month, I'm heading to Europe for a few weeks. We'll be going to Madrid (with a day trip to Toledo), Berlin (where I've lived briefly), Geneva, and Paris.Do any of you well-traveled hubbers have suggestions for cool places to check out in any of these cities? Obviously I'll...

You can have dinner with 3 famous people (living or dead). Who are your choices and why?
