I am not well-traveled, but I have a few places on my list:

New Zealand (not Australia, where the wildlife basically all have lethal intentions, even the platypii)
Ireland & England & Wales
France (particularly the area around the Lascaux caves)

I would also love to return to Italy and Scotland.

Mainly because it was very dirty and the people there (particularly in Marrakesh) tended to be very aggressive in trying to get you to depart from your money especially in the souks/markets. Even if I was just walking thru I would constantly get pressured to buy something from people on the street (not to mention that nearly every taxi driver was trying to rip me off) and it just became a case of sensory overload.

That being said I will say that the town of Essaouira is pretty nice.

I have a weird fascination with colder places. I like beach vacations too, but I feel myself turning into a blob sometimes, just laying there, sizzling. Even though I'm not a world traveler, I would love to see more northerly Canada, Norway/Sweden/Finland, Iceland, New Zealand's South Island, Australia's Tasmania, southern Chile and Argentina, and of course, Antarctica. For family historical purposes, I would also like to visit Wales and Germany.

Sicily to track down original roots also Italy ala the Coliseum and ancient places like that where death was common place in those days. (don't take me wrong there)

Poland and the concentration camps that are a staple of history...

Egypt and the rich history there..

Many places, but if i see a couple in my lifetime I'll be good with that. Sicily being number one..

And mexico and the Mayan ruins..

I live here - the USA. We have two completely different oceans with their unique coastlines as well as hundreds of bays, rivers, lakes, streams and ponds to satisfy those seeking water. We have tropics, deserts, mountains, polar cap, Hawaii is the USA and there ain't much else as everyone else comes here. We have any scenery you want and some you may never think of. If you ever get bored in this country you haven't really tried hard enough.

Have been to:
Canada (but only ON - want to see a LOT more of it)
USA (AR AZ CA [only Needles] CO FL GA IA ID [only Victor] IL IN KS KY LA MD [only that teeny west part] MI [home] MN MO MS MT NE NC ND NM NY [no further East than Rochester] OH [childhood home] OK PA SC SD TN TX UT VA WI WV and WY).

Really want to go to:
(especially either of these two - as I was active in Astronomy until I got sick of the same old northern sky. Visiting a Southern Hemisphere country would give me a new sky to look at).

After all those, given the time and money...
New Zealand
Czech Republic

One thing for sure. If I suddenly came into money, I would be flying around for years.

I've been to most of the countries I really wanted to visit save one trip I have planned in my head I have yet to get to. I'd like to tour Prague, Budapest, and Vienna, taking trains between the cities. Some of my family came from that part of the world and the closest I've ever come to it was Germany.
