where is your fave travel destination?

I recently got back from a trip to the Uk and Italy and had a ball.
Ive been to the UK, Ireland and Hawaii before also.
I think I basically want to spend my life as a traveller, nice dream anyway..
Favourite places Ive seen so far are definitely Ireland, this little fishing village in Co. Cork called Kinsale. Just like something out of a fairy tale.The mist on the water, and the lil coloured rows of houses on the hill...

On Hawaii, you cant get much better than the strip along Kaanapali in Maui. Gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous shores...

Italy I fell in love with on my last trip. Venice is like a dream
Florence...ahhh what a beautiful city
but theres nothing like driving through the Tuscan countryside, with all the poplars lining the hillsides and the gorgeous olive trees in rows. Everything is in perfect rows in Italy.
All those images you have in your head actually come to life in Italy. its quite an amazing place.

So come on, tell me about the favourite places you've travelled to...

Honduras, just like something out of a fairy tale that takes place in Honduras and is about Honduras rather than fairies. And nothing in Honduras is in a perfect row.

Seriously, Honduras is my favorite travel destination. Some of the best people in the world, and it's cheap, cheap, cheap!

Maui would be the most beautiful place I've been to, and probably have to give Vegas the vote for the most fun destination.

I agree manda-Kinsale is beautiful. In Ireland-well, I love the WHOLE country-but especially County Kerry-and Galway.

Unfortunately, I haven't traveled much-would so love to go to Hawaii-and Italy too.

My fave travel places in US-Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Savannah, Georgia

Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket-MA

Coastal Maine

Manda, like you, i would love nothing more than to spend my life traveling.
It's hard to pick a favorite place, because we go to different places for different things. Aruba is my favorite beach destination. I have never seen water like that. And the people are so incredibly nice.
For culture, I pick London. I have always had a fascination with that place and it was exactly as I pictured it.
Places I have been so far (aside from the continental US) - Maui, Hawaii; London, England; Dubin, Ireland; Aruba...i think that's it. Oh and Martha's Vineyard (yes I know it's in the continental US but it merits a mention since it is truly one of my favorite places on earth...Edgartown in September after all the crowds have left..lovely!)
Places I want to go next: back to London, Paris, Italy, Prague, Dublin again...

I love Finland (Turku, specifically) because I've spent more time there than anywhere except home, and my grandmother lived there till she died, and sometimes I miss her and Finland so much I can't even think about it. It hurts too much.

Last year I traveled into the middle of Switzerland, the Interlaken area, maybe the most beautiful area I've seen. The mountains are beyond words.

I went to Mexico last year, south of Cancun and the beaches are so beautiful there. I'm supposed to go again in a few weeks but the airline we were supposed to fly went bust. We're currently uncertain as to whether the travel agent will arrange something different.

London is probably my favourite city that I've visited though I only spent a week there. I think it is the greatest city on earth.

Venice, where I went when I was seven going on eight, is the most beautiful city I have ever seen or will ever see, probably. On that same trip, Paris was amazing.

And I only spent a few days in Dublin but next year I may move there. Maybe next year I actually will instead of just talking about it.

Places I've been to: Venice/Italy, Strasbourg/France, Vienna/Austria, Split/former Yugoslavia, Dublin/Ireland, Santa Eulalia/Ibiza, the southwest of the US.

If I could only visit one of this places again it would definitely be USA. I have to see Yosemite Valley just one more time and San Francisco and Monument Valley and Grand Canyon and and and *sighs & dreams*

I havnt done that much travelling, I have seen a lot of Australia and have been to the west coast of America and to Hawaii which were both pretty nice, anyway I will give you my wish list of places I really want to visit....

Ireland- now I wonder why????

Scandanavia- to see some auroras up close and personal

Ghana- west African music at its best

Morocco- too rock the Casbah

Cuba- more great music and to see a running communist country

The Amazon- would love to trek into the deepest depths of that magnificent rainforest

For me, it'd have to be a toss-up between Dublin and Amsterdam...both were absolutely amazing!

Spain (all of it, whether a major city like Madrid or the small towns throughout the mainland or the coastal regions)

Austria (though the people aren't as friendly as other places, the scenery alone is stunning)

Budapest, Hungary (with the Danube separating the city into an "old world" and "modern," the people are great and everything is affordable)

Zagreb, Croatia (many students and young people, very out-going, friendly and fun-loving, great sense of history in a place that survived a war, and the city's vibrant attitude reflects that)

New York, USA (can't wait till I get there again next month, I haven't been in over a year, I'm sure it will be very emotional to go back now especially at Christmas)

Chicago, USA (it's been called "the NY of the middle America, probably why I like it so much)

Amsterdam, Netherlands (dreary weather and the architecture is very uniform, but I think everyone must experience a night in Amsterdam at some point in their life)

Belgium (only visited Brouge for a day, but one it's just one of those places that you have to see to believe)

Paris, France (loved it except the part about it being too expensive to really do anything except walk around and see everything, so many places that are just over-priced tourist traps)

oh, and Florida is nice, haven't been to California, shockingly enough

Oh mandababe, you know I have to answer this question.

I've spent most of my life travelling (my parents worked overseas) and I just got back from a 2-month Europe trip. Of all the places I have been to...I don't know if I could pick just one best.

1. Sulawesi. Yeah, that should be obvious right? But even if I hadn't grown up there...it's still one of the most beautiful places on earth. Lush green jungles, mountains, blue oceans cascading over coral reefs, tropical fish, amazing food, beautiful people. It will always be the place my heart calls home.


Lake Geneva area in Switzerland. The Alps, the water, the chocolate, the peaceful hills and valleys with the cows and their bells. What's not to like?

Venice. It is very much like a dream. It seems as if you could walk right back in time. Cream and pastel coloured houses all running together...tiny winding cobblestoned streets...finding a solitary bridge crossing a lonely canal...these are some of the mental postcards I'll keep from Venice.

Cinque Terre, Italy. Five Italian villages on the coast. Winding terraced vineyards on the steep hills, furious waves pounding the rocky coast, amazing wine and great locals.

Scotland. The Western Highlands were wild and beautiful...rugged and yet (dare I say it) homey. Glasgow had a great feel to it. Less touristy than Edinburgh and I found it to be very friendly.

Dublin. All the U2 stuff is a fan's dream. But other than that it's still a fantastic city. Upbeat, friendly, great beer, cool accents...and actually it was more cosmopolitan than I had expected. The streets make no sense. Just head towards the River Liffey.

Iceland. Cold and wild and beautiful. Endless expanses of white snow broken by mountains, black lava rock everywhere, geysirs, volcanoes, hot springs, waterfalls.

I could go on, but I think I'm gushing, so I'll quit for now. Our world is a beautiful place. We should take great pains to see it as much as possible.

There's no way I could pick just one place...

Dublin (for the people), London, Seagrove Beach Florida (see Bama we agree ), the volcanos in Maui, New York City.

I love to travel.

San Francisco
Boston/Martha's Vineyard
(I found Bar Harbor to be waaay overhyped)

I also spent 2 weeks in Burkina Faso on a mission trip a few years ago. An *extremely* poor country, but the beauty of that place was seeing people who had absolutely no "riches" in the world, yet didn't even seem to realize it and were somewhat content with what they had. All they needed was love, medical assistance, and attention.

Yes, but if I recall, you prefere Bud & Alley's; we prefer The Red Bar. Although the Roof Bar at Bud & Alley's is cool when Brad Vroon/Salty Dog are playing.
