Scotland. I've got to see Culloden before I die. Also a pass-thru Speyside for a wee dram. See.

You should try Islay (or at least the Whisky Experience in Edinburgh). Nothing is better than a good Ardbeg.

I'd go to Japan and jump in one of them reactors so I'd become Radioactive Man.

Pitt_Mackeson 4 years, 1 month ago

The levels weren't high enough so I just became fallout boy. Lame. I'll leave some hot dogs in there for ya sr80. And some rancid spinach. I'd eat it but it gives me the runs.

Thailand was absolutely incredible. The food was wonderful, and the exchange rate is unbeatable. I never paid more than $3 for dinner and a beer. Also, New Zealand would be a gorgeous place to backpack for a few weeks.

Bill Lee 4 years, 1 month ago

I want to go back to Germany to see how it's changed since I lived there. I lived there for five years as an army brat. It'll be fifty years this fall since I moved back to the States.

France, to meet my granddaughters and bring back some of those little thin pancakes I hear so much about.

littlelawrencian 4 years, 1 month ago

grammaddy, i always wanted to go to Paris to see the Louvre, let's start packing! We would have a blast.

grammaddy 4 years, 1 month ago

Me,too! I have a daughter who lives there, within walking distance of the Louvre.

I just got back from a visit to Montreal...that's all the francophone hospitality I can handle for at least the next couple of decades.

Congrats on being the first person in the world to recognize Crete and Corfu as independent nations. May wanna alert the UN though...

CreatureComforts 4 years, 1 month ago

Malta = country. But Corfu and Crete...definitely Greek territory.

Malta is great though...I spent a week there and loved it.

Peru...with Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, the Amazon Rain Forest, glaciers, desert, mountains, surf beaches, more native dishes than any other country in the world, ancient ruins, affordable prices and a warm loving people---it is the perfect vacation spot.

R_I, the one with the Mid-America Air Museum.

I'll put another vote towards Peru.

Tortola or the Lesser Antilles, a tough choice. You can have Europe; it's certainly an improvement over the US but falls far short of island life in my experience. Ya mon !

tomatogrower 4 years, 1 month ago

Anywhere they aren't shooting at each other. If you haven't been to Costa Rica, you should start your travels their. Beautiful rain forests, great beaches, and inexpensive. But I do want to see the rest of the world before I am using a walker.

labmonkey 4 years, 1 month ago

New Zealand, Iceland, and Ireland are the three I would like to go to.

tomatogrower 4 years, 1 month ago

According to the birthers, Hawaii isn't a part of the US.

GSWtotheheart 4 years, 1 month ago

it is a part of the United States but as one of the last 2 states admitted to the wasn't yet a state when Obama was born there!

Larry Bauerle Jr. 4 years ago

Hawaii was admitted as a state in 1959. Obama was born in 1961.

England and NZ because I have very close friends that live there. Ireland is a bit of a given and I actually already have my route mapped out. In fact, now that my children are all adults, I wouldn't mind moving to Ireland, if I could afford it. I'd spend my days hanging out at the Library at Trinity College.

Sheryl Wiggins 4 years, 1 month ago

I'm with you Cait--England and NZ. I'd also add Iran, Iraq, Libya, Cyprus but probably won't be possible in my lifetime. I'd love to see Cuba too. Been to Ireland many times and could see myself living there too. I'd spend my days in Wicklow or Spanish Point and my nights in a pub in Newbridge. I'd love to go back to Greece.

nobody wants to go to patagonia...that's good for patagonia...

Cait McKnelly 4 years, 1 month ago

I want to go to Patagonia. I love penguins.

Sheryl Wiggins 4 years, 1 month ago

ever since I read that Paul Theroux book, the name escapes me at the moment, I've wanted to go to Patagonia. 'Riding the Iron Rooster' perhaps. Oh duh, it's called 'The Old Patagonia Express'. I forgot to mention Australia, Egypt and Chile. and Spain. I'd probably like to visit France as an adult. Hopefully I'd appreciate it a bit more than when I was 16. Then, as I recall, my main endeavour was to find a McDonald's.

beatrice 4 years, 1 month ago

Australia, so I could say "crikey" without people looking at me funny.

don't forget pokey = slot machines

"Sun City has a little bit more. However, realize that both will eventually be ghost towns." Sun City is a ghost town. The only half way viable business is Buster's and it's going belly up since the new owners took over. A few of the people that live in the town either work at the gyp mine or over in Medicine Lodge at the drywall plant. Other than that the town is full of radical right wing Christian crazies (including a Christian "girls school" where they actually arrange marriages).

I've been everywhere man, Breathed the mountain air man! Traveled my share man, I've been everywhere! Dodge City what a pity! Just kiddin!

Really, always wanted to go to Nepal and trek the Annapurna Circuit; 200 miles of awesome scenery! Or maybe Bhutan!

Boston_Corbett 4 years, 1 month ago

Don't forget nearby Saratoga. Both prairie dogs there are so excited about the Governor's re-population plan.

You're not missing anything R_I_. Weaver's is soooo over-rated.

LadyJ 4 years, 1 month ago

Valhalla, or how about Shangri-La, or maybe Themyscira. Otherwise, I have always wanted to to the Black Forest in Germany. If I'm lucky I might see a Heinzelmännchen.

jhawkinsf 4 years, 1 month ago

I'd like to go see the polar ice caps, before they're all gone. See some polar bears, before they're all gone. Maybe do some whale watching, before they're all gone. I'd like to do these things, before I'm gone.

Where ever you go ... there you are.

Kevin Enos 4 years, 1 month ago

I've travelled a lot already but one of the few areas I never got to was Eastern Europe. I'd like to see Poland, Czech Republic and Rumania.There is some amazing architecture and some pretty tasty beer to be had in some of those places. Otherwise, pretty much anywhere in Europe or the British Isles - England, Scotland & Ireland.

Being that it's not quite spring, I'd really like to do some snorkelling or diving in the Carribean or South Pacific. My favorite activity.

blindrabbit 4 years, 1 month ago

Give up US 54 and take US 160 20 miles further south and see the best part of Kansas. Medicine Lodge to Coldwater with side trips to Lake City and Sun City. Most Kansans don't know about Barber and Comanche Counties.

riverdrifter 4 years, 1 month ago

Think big. US 83 as Ian Frazier described it in his book Great Plains is the main street of the Great Plains. I've driven it several times from Brownsville, Texas to somewhere north of Westhope, North Dakota to the Canadian border. Just do it. It's empty and wide open. And great.

bolshavik_vw 4 years, 1 month ago

I would actually go to more than one, Germany,Spain,England and canada.

squarepusher 4 years, 1 month ago

I'd go have some fun in New Vegas first, then to the Capitol Wasteland for some r-n-r, then see some relatives in Raccoon City and stop by Silent Hill to meet the in-laws. Since these places aren't technically in the USA, I'd be visiting a different country. per-se.


TopJayhawk 4 years, 1 month ago

That place in France where the women wear no pants.

daddax98 4 years, 1 month ago

Is that question grammatically correct?

scopi_guy 4 years, 1 month ago

Australia. I'd get 2 of my friends to go with me, buy a big used bus, paint it lavendar and drive across the country. Oh wait, I think that's been done before...
