Default Going somewhere?

If you could go anyplace in the world, and money was not a problem (all expenses paid), where would you go and why? This could be visiting friends or relatives, seeing a place you've always wanted or revisiting a place you loved. Just name one place at a time so we can keep this going for a while.

I'll begin. I'd like to take my husband to see the Grand Canyon. He's never been to any of our national parks and I'd start him with that one. I'm afraid I'm a coward and there would be no river rafting or donkey ride to the bottom of the canyon included.

Where would you go?

I'd love to go to New Zealand and/or Australia. Hubby would love to do the hiking thing in New Zealand but not me. We'd also both like to do a cruise in Alaska. Hubby would love to take the same track that Schakleford took when he went to the South Pole. Not something for me as I hate the cold and I'm not much of a walker.

I'd like to take Kibby and Hubby to San Diego so I could show them where I grew up. They would also love the zoo and Sea World.

For all NZ and Aus are so close, we are very different, when it comes to read about the touristy trips that can be made. But I'd like to start my Australian trip in Tasmania which is probably the nearest to NZ in climate, but so full of history. And the TV programmes you can see are a help

Priscilla - how many ways are there of getting to the bottom of the Grand Canyon?

Well, I suppose you COULD jump (probably the fastest, but not recommended! ). Let me think. You can hike down, take a donkey ride or I think there are small helicopters that take people to the bottom. I am seriously afraid of heights. If we do go someday I will be the one 20 feet back from the edge (even with fencing) and Jeff will be right up to the edge exclaiming about the view!

If you go to the Grand Canyon you will have to go out on the glass walk that goes out over the canyon. Supposable you can look down and see the bottom under your feet

Eeeeeeek! Jeff can do that. I like my feet on solid ground as much as possible. I don't even like glass elevators in hotels.

Just remember, we can take multiple trips because money is no object. So, once you've gone on one journey, choose another.

I think my next trip would be back to England to say hello to Anneli again. I'm going to make my journeys alternate - one in the US and one in another country. We have a few other friends in England I'd like to visit as well. Maybe I'd even drag Jeff to Arundel to the campus of New England college (closed now) where I spent 3 of my 4 years in college. Fun times!

We're actually sort of doing this. We now live in a fifth wheel trailer. We're only traveling in the USA right now, anyway. Dh isn't as interested in other countries as I am. We spent the spring in St Marys, GA, and the summer in Ohio. Also went to Indiana. Spent a month in Summersville, WV, workamping in a Corp of Engineers park. Spent November in NC and are now in Crystal River, FL. We'll spend the winter here, and then head north again. If anyone is interested, I have a blog, which I need to update. http://wemustaway.wordpress.com/

I, too, would enjoy visiting the Grand Canyon, but so far, haven't been able to interest dh in it.

England,I've been twice and both times could not see/do what I wanted.

And the other parts as well.Scotland Ireland and Wales (which I stuck a toe in but again not where/what I wanted to see)

The husband has a fascination with Hawaii,me got zippo desire but he's not going alone.

Australia and New Zealand. Those are the real tops.

Now because money is no object I'm sure I'd do others.

Hubby and I did the Grand Canyon when I moved out to CA to live with him more then 20 years ago. That was long before the glass walkway. I don't think either of us would have done that!! We did take a plane trip over the Canyon though. That was lovely!!

The glass walk way is expensive, if money no object then I would do it.

Next I would go to New Zealand and or Australia. Hubby would not go with me. When ever I talk about traveling there he says why does he want to, he has not lost anything there. He does not have a traveler's since of adventure.

Yellowstone Park for me next. I went there several times as a kid with my parents and brother. I'd like to see it again through grown up eyes.

Although we traveled extensively there are more than enough destinations still on our list. South-Africa was our goal for this year but due to circumstance that trip was canceled three times in a row. We decided to go another time and visit Madeira insteda.

If money was no option, as you said, destination would be Australia and New Zealand. Those are, for us, the most expensive destinations.

My wife does not want to but I'd also like a 3 month world cruise... please, pretty please.

A world tour would be good.

not sure I want to go on a cruise ship. Everyone keeps telling you don't feel the ship's motion, but not sure my stomach wouldn't.

If someone offer to send me on a cruise I would go. I would take a large suit case full of Dramamine

That sounds like a wonderful place, Hans. I look forward to pictures.

I would not want to go on a cruise. I would like to fly or drive to lots of places. I would not want to be stuck on a boat, especially when you can't be sure when the weather will be bad or there could be illness on board. I like little boats for sailing or kayaking near shore!

If I had the money, I'd go to Paris.

I spent may years learning the language in school. I've been to Quebec City and Montreal, but there's not really that big of a novelty to it when you live close enough to the border you can still make the trip by car.

If money was no object, I'd like to visit New Zealand. I fell in love with the place thanks to LotR and The Hobbit. Trouble is, I'd have to go first class because I have long legs (a doctor once told me that if the rest of my bones matched my femurs I would be over 182 cm / 6 ft tall) and always feel cramped in tourist class, which I can deal with on short flights but not long ones.

Granath, have you seen the Air New Zealand videos, and a picture of the aeroplane they painted up like Smaug ? They're most impressive and great fun.

And of course, you must travel first class or business class, tall people swear by them as being a lot more comfortable.

Is that where you work, Delia? Lucky you! I live in CT, so DisneyWorld is cheaper to fly to. We've been going every other year since our kids were in high school. They are now 27 and 30. For some strange reason they still don't mind going with their silly parents (now including daughter's boyfriend and son's girlfriend). We do help pay for some of it but it never, ever gets "old" to any of us.

I did go to Disneyland for one day when I was 9 years old. That is more than 50 years ago. I imagine it has changed a great deal and what I saw with my child's eyes would probably seem different now even if still there.

What exactly do you do there?
