If you are still interested in places to visit, Dominica in the West Indies is absolutely stunning. Hot sulphur springs, views of the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean, great local cuisine & beautiful rainforests with great hiking trails throughout the island...
I have just published a Hub on Dominica..It would be great if you could stop by and let me know what you think...its gorgeous!!! (the article is written from an insiders perspective as I live here with my husband).
Hmm.. let's see, I love traveling, so here we go: England - I live there now France - 5 years Australia - 2 months, but I want to go live there eventually. Italy - one of my favorite places in the world! Scotland - such beauty... Belgium Holland Switzerland Spain US - New york, L.A. New jersey Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore Pakistan, India Dubai, Sharjah
I guess I am the shut in. I have only been to , Spain , Italy,and Jamaica. I don.t count Mexico , I can go there daily. Although back in the day there were many good times at Papas and Beer and Hussongs. Now I am old , sigh.
England (I'm English - does that count?) Wales Scotland Ireland Holland France Barbados USA (Detroit, Springfield mass, New York, Boston) Canada (London) Spain Canary Islands Malta Kenya Uganda Tanzania Philippines UAE Saudi Arabia
USA - NY, NV, IL, FL Canada Scotland England (obviously) Wales Ireland Spain (about 20 times) France Holland Belgium Gran Canaria Lanzarote Tenerife Minorca (Ok so the last four are technically still Spain!) Turkey
The place that I would most like to visit is Japan, and back to Vegas! This thread has made me feel drastically under travelled, although most of you have quite a few years on me!
Sorry I missed this question posed to me 3 months ago, Ryan! I know you're out now with your surgery so you may not see my reply for 3 months! LOL
In all fairness, my English husband primarily took me around England. I saw only small parts of Wales and a tiny bit of Scotland. I really haven't seen enough of them to tell you which I'd like better, but based on my two visits, I can tell you that all of the UK is beautiful and I felt right at home there. My in-laws still live there and I would love to come back for a visit.
I've been to the US and Mexico on a family holiday...and on more family holidays and trips to Western Canada... Eastern Canada... back to Western Canada...oops, that wasn't actually EAST-Eastern Canada... just "out East" as they say (from the Prairies). I suppose Ontario's actually CENTRAL Canada?
Man, I gotta get on a plane soon or something, eh?
all over Canada - have to see where I live (north, south, east and west) all over US - just have 3 more states to travel around France - several places (love the art & culture - need to go back and see the art again) Mexico - only 2 spots (and not the usual tourist destinations) Netherlands - several places (loved seeing the works of the dutch masters - need to go back and see the art again)
and am trying to figure out how I can afford to travel through a few other countries but by motorcycle and with the right travelling companions.
I LOVE traveling as well ... but we're in a financial pinch now, so haven't really gone anywhere recently But here goes:
1. Thailand (I'm from there) 2. Malaysia 3. Singapore 4. Nepal (one of my favorite countries!) 5. S. Korea (twice) 6. Taiwan 7. Hong Kong 8. Japan (I live here, been here for 12 years) 9. USA (My dad's American and I went to High School and University there) - Visited some 20 states or so (?), plus Hawaii and Guam 10. England (one of my favorite countries. Did my Master's there) 11. Scotland 12. Holland (twice) 13. France 14. Belgium 15. Switzerland (twice) 16. Germany 17. Lichtenstein 18. Spain (another one of my favorites) 19. Portugal (yet another )
Hmm .. that's it! I've also crossed the border into Laos from Thailand and to Canada and Mexico from the States, but I'm not counting that!
Russia Latvia Estonia Belorus Ukraine Uzbekistan Kazakhstan Kyrgyzstan Lithuania France Germany England Italy Hungary Turkey Egypt Thailand Dominican Republic Trinidad and Tobago Barbados USA Armenia Georgia Azerbaijan Izrael
But, I have been all over the midwest, mainly in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, And Wisconcin. I have also visited Niagra Falls, and Key West Florida. I didn't like Key West, I wish I would have stayed two weeks in Orlando rather than go there. There really wasn't that much to do.
I have thought about going to Denmark, as you can get there really easily and quite cheaply on a ferry from close to where I live. Is there much to do for children, ages 10 and 2? (especially the ten year old as he will moan otherwise!)
Hi, I was born in Wales , travelled to NZ by ship via South Africa, lived in NZ , North & south . Moved to Australia then Wales for few years. Visited England Scotland Ireland Belgum France Germany Italy Switzerland America overnight in Japan. Now back in Australia
Hello EH I've not ignored my own country in the pursuit of overseas travels. I've been to most places in New Zealand - cities, towns, small country areas, beaches, mountains, fjords and forests. It's a fascinating country and I'm a proud kiwi.
But....I still like to travel.
Your country is fascinating too and I have visited several places there. When I lived in Australia I also did a course in Aborigine studies which afforded a great insight into Australian history.
It's fun trying to remember. I was lucky enough to work in BBC Outside Broadcasts for a few years when still in Scotland, so we travelled all over the country, including some of the Western Isles: Skye, Mull, Islay, Jura, Arran, Colonsay, Oronsay. Some very beautiful places (and some very fine whiskies too)
I've only traveled to one country and that is the U. S. Traveling to other countries is kind of expensive what with our exchange rate and all.
But I've traveled here in my country especially in Luzon (our northern island) and Mindanao - our southern island and where I am right now. I've been to a lot of places here that some people are afraid to go to because of what they read in the newspapers.
I love traveling, I went to Malta, England, Germany, Brussels, Netherlands, Spain, France, Australia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, HongKong, Japan and most of all the place where I was born Philippines
I've been meaning to try to remember for a long time. I've probably missed a few, but so far:
Scotland, England, N. Ireland, Eire, Wales, France, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Poland, Austria, Croatia, Turkey, Greece, Albania, Andorra, Norway, Denmark, Switzerland, USA, Canada, India, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Sudan, South Africa, Malaysia, UAE (Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Fujeira, Al Ain)
Some day I'd like to see New York. All my US trips have been to the west, Oregon, California, Nevada.
I love reading all the comments. There are a lot of well travelled people out there. Most of my time I was raising my five kids and travelled a lot for their local activities. Leaving a big gap of my life too busy to travel alone. I,ve never been "across" the blue, but travelled my country, South Africa, quite a lot. Then I've been living for a long time in Mozambique. I,ve been to Zwaziland and Transkai. Have been in Botswana for a short visit in-and-out, but not travelled it. Never been to Zimbabwe, will go one day. Every year we go to Namibia in the hunting season. Nice place to visit, a lot to explore and see and beautiful people.
When I was younger my parents used to take us on cruises, so there are loads of places that I've spent like one day at. or that we went back to several times on different cruises. Some of them I have had a proper holiday at.
England (I'm from England) Scotland Wales (going back there in 2 weeks) France Spain Italy (and Vatican City) Greece Madeira (technically Portugal I guess) Canary Islands Andorra Monaco Germany (for a day when staying in France) Holland Belgium Denmark Norway Sweden Finland (only one day) Russia (only St Petersburg) Croatia (only one day) Switzerland (drove into Switzerland just so I could say I'd been to Switzerland) Malta Cyprus Israel Morroco Tunisia America (NY, FL, Vermont for a day) Canada (went to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls just so I could say I'd been there) Venezuela and various Islands in the Mediterranean that don't really count as countries (Majorca, Minorca, Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily)
Selrach you must be quite a big fan of football. You have been in a lot of places, just for that. Just wondering if you have joined us here in SA for the world Fifa cup. If so, I give you a sunny welcome. if not, it's never too late. The kids just say, if you come, remember your earplugs, when you've had enough of the noise of the Vuvuzela's. We are having a great time here.
I have also been to several US States (either lived there or visited): Maine Vermont New Hampshire Massachusetts Maryland West Virginia Pennsylvania New York Ohio Indiana Michigan Kentucky Missouri Illinois Minnesota (airport) California
Nickg480- great question. I think we should also start the list by identifying where we are from. So, I'm from the U.S. and my list includes several states here in the U.S., which I am not listing, (since they ARE states, LOL and not countries). My favorite thus far is Italy-I agree, great place & want to return someday. 1. Canada 2. Mexico 3. Jamaica 4. England 5. France 6. Switzerland 7. Monte Carlo 8. Italy
Meager compared to some, but treasured each country and the experiences they brought.
My students often ask me where I have been in the world. Chinese students have limited travel experiences, so when I tell them I have been to New Zealand, Fiji, Noumea, Los Angeles (USA), London, Dublin, Singapore, Malaysia and I've lived in China for nearly two years, and South Korea for three months, they are in awe.
Far too few mentions of South Africa in these lists! I live here and am passionate about the place - the people, the natural beauty, the history, the culture, just about everything! Born and bred here and have travelled it quite extensively, from north to south, from east to west, though there are still places I want to get to. And many I want to get back to! In addition I have been to: Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Botswana, Lesotho, Germany, Sweden, England, Holland, France, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Canada. I still want to get to: Brazil, Greece, Japan, Austria, Scotland Ireland (not necessarily in that order!).
SA is there on my tick-box, though it was only Jo'burg, with no time to travel beyond. Sandton & the Lion Park, and the CodFather Restaurants..
Tonight I noticed Linda. He contrived to feign amusement when an overfed disaster made a joke about his name, impressing no-one. Lindewe, in spite of all her training, aimed a quiet glare less at the humorist from outer space than at her husband's laugh of servitude. Later, I crouched in shadows hoping for a glimpse of the cicada whose top "C" (fortissimo) had mesmerised my path from restaurant to suite. An hour is long to wait upon an insect, yet the time seemed better spent upon this creeping thing than squandered among slugs from Saville Row.
