I'll join you, Dee. I yearn to sail the canals and I want an old tub like the boys bought!

I have been to England several times but last summer I finally got north to Hadrains Wall.  It was my favorite part of the trip-  I loved how it seemed to go on forever.

 I am also a fan of the Burren in the southwest of Ireland-  so stunningly windswept with all the unexpected  prehistoric monuments.

I'd also like to visit the Broads after reading the Sealark.  My dream trip would be to New Zealand though, followed closely by Australia.  Then I'll head to Italy with my mom, because that's her dream trip...and I'm willing to travel just about anywhere Smile

I've experienced quite a bit of the Western World already and most places were awesome for different reasons: the mystique and sense of prehistory of Stonehenge and Old Sarum, the Britishness of Victoria until you realise you're also looking at a totempole (!), the history and culture of London, Rome and Paris, the fairy tale like atmosphere in Hoh Rain Forest in Washington State, the tranquility of a weekend on an old fashioned sailingboat in the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the gorgeous, but - to somebody from one of the most densely populated countries in the world - scarily unpopulated and empty deserts of Utah, to name just a few.

I am now really looking forward to experiencing a different kind of culture than that I am used to. My best friend and I are planning on visiting Istanbul in the near future. Middle Eastern architecture and mosaics,


markets (Paul would love this),


hamams,


 and Turkish food



I can't wait.

Maybe you can post a few pictures for us?  And if those were stuffed grape leaves I saw in that one picture, taste one for me!  I would love to make some, some day!

Way late, I know, but my sister just sent me these fantastic photos of the Northern Lights that she took on her recent trip to Norway. I’d like to see it for myself, but I don’t know if I could survive 19 degrees below zero!

Pick the most exciting or wonderful place you've ever been to - or a place that's on your bucket list, even if only in your dreams? 

Pictures, links to videos, descriptions and anecdotes, information - whatever you'd like to share. Tell us about that place!

If it is allowed to be the next place I go that I haven't been, then mine will be Costa Rica, but I leave in less than a week for San Jose, so it won't be an unvisited place for long.  New places are always exciting, and it was a toss up between there and Hawaii (I want some sunshine!), but I was in Honolulu two years ago, so off to Central America I am.  (I still want to go to Volcano National Park on the Big Island, so another trip to Hawaii is actually somewhere down the pike.)

Good one - we were in Hawaii last year and saw volcanic lava flowing into the sea - amazing!
