Well, in May, I am being posted to Moscow, Russia, so I guess that is the location.

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...

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.

Yep.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sun City. With the Gov. Brokesplash's new plan, I may move to Sun City. I could sell maps.

"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."

I just ate there in January and they keep adding friends on their Facebook page.

"And, yes, there are backroads from Belvidere to Greensburg." - T_O_B

I have been on those backroads inspite of the fact that in 28 years I have never been in Weavers department store..

"It is a scenic route, but there really isn't much there. It is actually labeled River Rd most of the way from Medicine Lodge to Lake City and then Sun City. I took pictures while I was there. Lake City is pretty much abandoned. I wish LJWorld allowed one to upload pictures. Sun City has a little bit more. However, realize that both will eventually be ghost towns. There is a house (maybe the train station) near the tracks in Sun City that I wish was fixed up. I have never taken the road to go all the way to Belvedere. I assume from there you can take more back roads and meander around to get to Greensburg. Normally after Sun City, I simply go south to get to US-160. The Gypsum Hills is a beautiful area. Because US-54 is such a traveled highway, much fewer people bother to take US-160. Though I grew up in SW Kansas, I never saw the Gypsum Hills until about 15 years ago." None

Where are you from? And, yes, there are backroads from Belvidere to Greensburg.

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.

I speak Russian very well when I'm drunk on bourbon. Do they have bourbon in Russia? I remember it was hard to find Bourbon in Europe. I don't think the Russian works on vodka is the issue.

And my answer is Hawaii. But apparently that is in THIS country. Who knew. But I am going in January. Do they have bourbon there?

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.

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 !

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.

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.

I'll make it three for Scotland. Spent a summer in England once and I regret that we never went north.

Would like to go back to England again, too. We have a lot of family there and don't see them often enough.

I've always wanted to go to Italy, too. And France.... Australia... Japan (so sad for them right now)... Brazil.... Morocco... Too many enchanting places.....too little money!
