Just got back from Vancouver. Loved it there.

Was there in May. Amazing city! Can't wait to go back!

@Mystical right!! I think I want to try other places first but going back to that awesome scenery is very tempting.

@antman What were some of your favorite sites? If I didn't get to them when I went l can add them to my list for next time.

Edited

@Mystical deep cove and grouse mountain. There’s an app I found: Moovit. Told me how to get there on the buses. Just buy a $10 day pass and off you go.
Deep cove was so beautiful. Felt so at peace there.

@antman I just looked them both up. Absolutely stunning. That view! I did the tourist stuff (Stanley Park, Granville Island etc.)this last time as I rented a house in Kitsilano and had a car. But these are fantastic suggestions I will love to see. Thanks!

@Mystical I biked around Stanley Park. That was great. Didn’t do Granville Island. The Chinese garden was crap.

I've just come back from Iceland and would recommend it to anyone who loves dramatic landscapes and fresh seafood. It is expensive though, especially if you like a drink.

NZ has great scenery, food and wine, so does Tasmania.

Sri Lanka is next on my hit list.

I'll second that I went to Iceland in May it was stunning. Going back for a longer trip next year.

Do you have pictures of Iceland that you wouldn't mind sharing?

@Donotbelieve very few as my phone basically died as we got there. About 25 mins battery while taking pics then that was it til i could charge it back at the hotel! But give me 20 mins and ill dig out what there is

@Salo ooo! I'll be eagerly awaiting them. smile001.gif

@Donotbelieve Here are a couple from a walk I did at Skaftafell

@Donotbelieve A couple more

@Strabo Thank you! These are lovely shots.

@Strabo, @Salo Thank you!

@Donotbelieve Just a tiny sample as I was there for ten days. It is hard to take bad photos in such beautiful places.

Sorry about the poor photos! I had one chance at most of them before the battery went!

@Strabo I would imagine so. ((sigh))

I'm living vicariously, for now.

@Strabo, @Salo Don't apologize. I appreciate your sharing.

@Donotbelieve Dont go without some decent spending money its a bit steep! But the best exchange rate is using a card. Everywhere takes them, maybe get 10 dollars worth from an ATM for the Reykjavik buses you won't need cash otherwise.

@Salo Handy to know. Thanks

Australia. No-nonsense people, cool shite, good beer. Try Tasmania.

Depends on what you are into. New Orleans is always one of my favorite destinations because there is literally something for everyone. Vampire events, haunted locations, museums, an incredible food and music experience as well as art, festivals, nature parks, etc.

I'm visiting the US later in the year. Hoping to fit in a few distinct locations and not necessarily the obvious ones. I'd decided on Boulder CO for the hills and Bellingham WA for more hills and their peace vigil on the International Day of Peace. But I've been persuaded to add a Big City as well and think I'm probably settled on New Orleans. Not sure about the vampires though, I bleed too easy.

@Salo Vampirism isn't necessarily drinking blood lol. If you enjoy elegance, sensuality, and the macabre or strange then you might enjoy it. Or any burlesque event.

@Akfishlady great thanks! Any hints for nice food and/or live music venues would be great I love the music scene there

It is definitely on my list of places to go.

I hear there is a lovely cave in Thailand.

I love that so many people are suggesting iceland. Me too me too

The only downside is we all should've gone 20 years ago, the tourism boom is in full swing there now! It doesnt ruin anything but it's weird to visit a small coastal village with 500 inhabitants and a large coach parking area right next to the cafe/gift shop. So far they've handled all that with more thought than many other places though.

Okay, here's a trip few take that will amaze you and you'll be able to impress the living kapok out of your friends with the recordings of your tour. The New York Underground.

Edinburgh. The Royal Edinburgh military tattoo happens in August and looks like so much fun.

Iceland, the sun doesn't set this time of year and it is home to some of the most attractive people on the planet, hot springs, nature, glaciers and wild parties.

Scandinavia! It's where my family originated and I have never been.

Donotbelieve Level 8 July 10, 2018

Beautiful. I did Sweden a good few times as a kid and once a round trip across to Finland then north by train into the Arctic Circle then West to the Norwegian coast

Where in scandanavia?

@Bigwavedave Where would I like to visit or where are my relatives?

@Donotbelieve where were your relatives from? Scandanavia is Sweden, Norway, Finland and denmark.

@Bigwavedave Sweden and Norway, but I would like to visit all of them, if possible. Including Iceland.

@Donotbelieve I have spent a lot of time in sweden . Amazing

@Bigwavedave Where you just sightseeing or doing photography? What was the draw?

@Donotbelieve I worked for a swedish company with operations in the us. My family became best friends with a swedish family. We vacation every year together since 2000. We have stayed at their house , visited extensively and sailed on the archipelago. Wonderful in the summer.

Cuenca, Ecuador. It is close to the equator, four seasons in one day. Big expat community. At one time I thought I might need that.

One of my bucket list items is to travel to the southern hemisphere to see the southern sky at night. Do you have any bucket list items that would work for your travels?

My dream has always been to just get in a reliable car that has a way to play all my favorite music and drive the back roads with no destination in mind. An old flame used to indulge me in this as best he could (we were constrained by work demands) and he swore he loved it more than any 'exotic' trip he'd ever taken. We stopped at small town diners for delicious meals, we ran across a 'barbeque trailer' in the middle of nowhere and ate the best ribs ever at a rickety picnic table in a field. We had coffee and donuts at shops across the street from the grain elevators and we'd stop for every 'tourist attraction' such as the Biggest Ball Of Twine On Earth. We still joke about a foursome having breakfast in a booth behind ours. They were discussing how a doctor had asked a friend about organ donation, regarding her dying husband. This was when the concept was still relatively new. Best Overheard Conversation, Ever!

A two year European tour, again, see what's changed and what hasn't. Berlin most definitely and Eastern Europe (since I couldn't go there before). Museums, river cruises, overnight in castles, the christmas markets, rosenmontag in Frankfurt (my favorite place to spend the weekend), the highland games, the Med coast.
Too many memories to count, too much fun to forget.

Angel City, Philippines 🇵🇭
It’s the best vacation spot for single man to taste all kinds of sin

I work with a guy who spent a month in the Philippines and had three girlfriends during that period.

@minhmeister

The Philippines is definitely on my bucket list, but I still have a soft spot in my heart for Thailand when it comes to meeting women.

Perhaps I'll make the Philippines my next trip since the woman I was seeing when I was in Thailand ran off and married some dude from Sweden.

@webbew1 The old running off with a Swedish guy trick

Edited

@minhmeister

Ya.... some dude named Kevin. Seems like an ok guy, but kinda butt ugly. Even uglier than me. I think??

Oh, well. She seems happy and it looks like he treats her good, so that's what's important.

Iceland or Norway. Totally under appreciated.

My first thoughts would go to New Zealand, Ireland, Japan, or just out of the country in general, but the more I think on it, the more I'd want to explore my own country. Each state has amazing things to see and explore.

I'm a Lovecraft fan, so there are some select places in Massachusetts and Rhode Island I'd like to visit. Also a couple of places in Hungary and Romania, tied to the Bathory and Tepes mythologies. After seeing a TEDtalk a few years ago there are some kind of anomalous archaeological features in southern Africa I'd like to see, as well as some of the standing stone clusters around the world.

Or you could buy rail traveller tickets which allow you to go anywhere in Europe for a limited period.
