Always wanted to live on a tropical island, but I'm still here in Margaritaville. It's my own damn fault.

New Zealand... although I would hate to have to give up my guns.

North Korea! But just long enough to claim a piece of their flag for the $1,000,000 bounty.

And yes, I know there's not really a bounty...but it's fun to imagine!

Seriously, Jamaica, for both the beach and the mountains and the Blue Mountains and the White River and the music and the Red Stripe beer and the dancing.

Yes, I know, I heard that when I went there, my daughter heard that when she went there, my granddaughter heard that when she went there. Still, its not all bad being poor there. I backpacked around the country, slept on the beach and hitched a ride up into the mountains. I remember good food, good talk and better ganja. The Rastas were basically good people though they didn't let women join the club back then. Now they do. Wonderful people.

And the coffee. Don't forget the excellent coffee they grow in those Blue Mountains.

Scotland. For the land. Also the shotguns, single malt and the ladies -all of the finest Scottish manufacture.

frankie8 sez '...and the Red Stripe beer..."

Smokin' all the ganja is the only way they can stomach the stuff. You gotta be blasted to drink that swill.

Tahiti is pretty cool. I definitely agree. Watching the Taitian girls dancing you realize that those English guys on the Bounty didn't have a chance.....

I think that Mr. Norwood is a bit clueless. Switzerland is one of the more strictly regulated societies around where even when you wash your clothes and take a shower is regulated.
