If you go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
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!
If you haven't yet done Supai Village,AZ, I highly recommend it, 10 mile hike in and out, only use what you can carry. It's a native reservation and a series of verdant oases nestled between the walls of the Grand Canyon. Highly recommend an April/May reservation.
Some folks in the office were talking about Angkor Wat temples. where Indian Jones scenes were filmed. saw a travel site that had 4 day tours for 250 USD today and my jaw hit the floor. I believe these are in/around Ho Chi Min city. assumably plane tix will be a bastard.
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.
Iceland is high on my list, esp in winter.
Also would like to go to South Africa, amazing wines.
Nova Scotia is great, is you want to stay safe... Newfoundland and Labrador would be interesting I am sure.
The US has lost it's allies but Canadians are still so nice.
