For family historical purposes, I would also like to visit Wales and Germany.
I've always wanted to go to Antarctica, but then a friend told me about her family members experience during the crossing! Scary.

There are videos on YouTube. The boat is lurching every which way and that was a good day.

I'll have to really think about it.

I also want to go to Dubai. I was able to traipse around Kuwait City while deployed and it was fascinating, so I want to see other places like that.

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 got to live in Sicily for a year and a half. Remote Air Force assignment! What an assignment. Beautiful. You will love it.

Actually we don't. We don't have real tropical rainforests. Even far Southern Florida aren't truly tropical (more subtropical) and they're not rainforests. There are several other examples as well.
