Well river, knowing they are endangered, we're sure you aren't looking to kill those sheep just to put a trophy on your wall. Just why are you hoping to go hunt for some sheep out in the wilderness where no one might see you? I don't think they play poker, doubt they fish either. :)

Mongolia, one of the last best places. Hunt Altai Argali, see the country, meet the people. I wish...

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: but it's a fake.

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 )

i'm w/ oliver the 7th grader... i'd love to visit australia. or new zealand. preferably both.

Hawaii. It's so nice there. The weather is beautiful, and the snorkeling and scuba diving is great!

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.

Give me a 50 yr old brain, 24 yr old body, multi millionaire bank account and just turn me loose. Too many to pick just one! Start me out on a "Gay and Away Tour' like on 'Under the Tuscan Sun". It would help if the terrorists had not caused the changes in the travel that they have, nor Britain become so dangerous. My best friend's parents backed out on our trip through Europe right after I got out of high school. She was one year older. Bummer. She ended up in the travel business.OMG. I just realized that. She stayed single, never giving them grand kids. Passive aggressive payback? How funny! They could be reading this. I hope they're laughing. :)

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 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.

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

Didn't autie have one of those last year?


Mary Darst 4 years, 9 months ago

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..


jonas_opines 4 years, 9 months ago

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.


Kathy Getto 4 years, 9 months ago

Grand Duchy of Luxembourg to visit family.


OeraLinda 4 years, 9 months ago

I lived in Italy for 4 months, it is a beautiful country. I you only visit one country in Europe, visit Italy.


Music_Girl 4 years, 9 months ago

I'm with shula too...Italy is definitely the top of my list with Ireland a close 2nd.


autie 4 years, 9 months ago

Oklahoma. We can buy smokes from the indigenous people and not pay federal excise tax. It's like the duty free shop.


RoeDapple 4 years, 9 months ago

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.................


denak 4 years, 9 months ago

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)


jaywalker 4 years, 9 months ago

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.


grammaddy 4 years, 9 months ago

France, I have a daughter who lives in Paris.


schula 4 years, 9 months ago

Italy - to see the great artwork by Michaelangelo
