Back to southern France, sit in the shade in the garden, drink cool rose from the local cave, eat the best bread, olives and cheese in the world, and read good books...

Was this really limited to just one place? I guess I love to travel... So far out side the US I have just done a few places in Canada, Europe, and the Philippines. However, if the sky was the limit I would like:

1) New Zealand 2) Australia & New Guinea 3) South America: Argentina, Chile, Peru, Bolivia, Brazil 5) Africa South Africa Madagascar Egypt Sudan Ethiopia Tanzinia Kenya Morocco 6) Asia Great Wall of China India 7) Middle east & Ottoman empire areas Israel Syria Turkey Afganistan All the other *istan countries Armenia Iran 8) Europe -- everywhere including Iceland 9) North America -- Alaska & British Columbia. 10) Antarctica

I'd love to see Cuba and the Middle East (obviously not at this time). I'm going to Ireland next weekend so I have that to look forward to and I'd love to go back to Greece and Turkey

Hawaii is on my list of places to go. I've visited the other 49 states, I'd like to complete the set.

Irish, the Surprise might be all the intestinal ailments you would most likely suffer...besides scurvy. Bad flour with mealy bugs, rotten salted pork, really bad rum....Oh yes, what a time to be alive.

I guess the Orient Express doesn't run anymore, does it? That would be one of my choices. And, even though I live in southeast Utah where many people come to see the extraordinary scenery, I still get homesick for Kansas andhope sometime to take an extended trip to see parts of it that I haven't seen before--mostly the southcentral and southeastern part of the state.

I see there is a severe thunderstorm watch for the Lawrence area today, I wish I were there--I miss those and the way the sky gets all yellow-green and the air becomes absolutely still before the storm. (I also miss the sassy bluejays and the cardinals--I guess a person can't have everything!)

To spend time on a sailing ship like the Surprise, one that is built strictly according to specs from that time (1793-1815) and everyone would dress and eat like that time.

Paris, France to meet the daughter I gave up at birth. And her daughters,(my grandaughters).

I'm already here.

A bowl of fresh made salsa for breakfast, wet green grass, silenced automatic firearms... who could ask for more?

Since not everyone listens to both types of music, Country AND Western, here is a favorite song of mine about where I would go.

"Toes" by the Zac Brown Band.

Ft. Lauderdale. My favorite place in the world.

Well, either there or Tonganoxie.

I finally made a trip to Scotland, which was tops on my list--though my time there was brief and I want to go back, and also to go to Wales--but I think Italy would be my first choice at this point. I also would like to see Greece and I understand Turkey is really beautiful. There are lots of places in this country I still want to visit as well, and I would like to take that train trip across Canada from Toronto to Vancouver.

No trip to Greensburg is complete until you see the patch of land that is designated "Bob's Childhood Home Used to be Here."

autie, the world's largest hand dug well is a heck of a thing. No trip to Greensburg is complete until you've seen the well.

Where the biggest ball of twine is, I have never seen that. Cawker City or something like that? Then on to the world's largest hand dug well, that should be a sight to behold.

Nevada (the town, not the state) is lovely this time of year.

Obviously a 'trick' question planted in the Journal World by Mrs Roe. I decline answering, as I might end up duct taped to the roof of the car and traveling against my will.
