France, I have a daughter who lives in Paris.

Peru and New Zealand are next on my list.

Schula, Do whatever it takes and get there, you'll never wanna leave! You can see David at the Academia in Florence, but whatever museums you go to make sure you buy tickets in advance on-line. Saves you hours waiting in line.

I'm with Shula. I want to go to Italy so badly. When I was coming back from Saudi Arabia, after Desert Storm, we stopped in Italy but we were not able to leave the airport because we were in uniform and armed. Man, here I was in the one country I wanted to visit the most, and was not able to leave. I just stood at the window the whole time. I didn't see anything except houses but at least they were Italian houses. :0)

Mrs Roe has been to Europe three times. I stayed home, told her if I want to see dilapidated old buildings I would go to West Bottoms in Kansas City............

Ouch! Still paying for that one.................

Italy was wonderful, of course.

Been to most of the top of the list already, with the notable exception of The top of the list, which is Japan.

France...Where my fathers family came from. Autie would know exactly where that is .I believe it to be in north east part of the country. Paris would be cool. And while I'm there it's just a hop to Italy. It would be wonder overload. By the way, Autie is a year older tomorrow..

Didn't autie have one of those last year?

You mean: "To which foreign country would you like to travel?" Seriously, have some pride in your work.

Italy is so incredibly overrated, I think, having been there a few times. I must say that, if I had to choose one country in Europe to go to, it would not be Italy...it would probably be Croatia.

However, of all the countries I have not been to (er, most of course), I would say...hmmm...probably something like Andorra - it intrigues me. I'd also like to go to Mongolia.

All of Europe. Most parts of Latin America. Much of Asia, and definitely Australia, and the safer parts of Africa. Actually, just about any place where there isn't a war happening. My girlfriend is of the same mind, but she said she couldn't go to any strict Muslim countries. She says it would be to difficult to cover her head and act submissive.

I've always wanted to view the world from the Sea of Tranquility or the slopes of Olympus Mons.

( D Rings, not out of the question )

The south and west of Ireland. Lots of rain, lots of green and lots of dolmens. If not there I'll go back to Washington/Oregon. Still get the lots of rain and lots of green. But no dolmens :( Well unless you count this: http://www.legendsofamerica.com/WA-Stonehenge.html but it's a fake.
