Sagres Portugal - the most beautiful beaches and cliffs I've ever seen. You do have to be part mountain goat to get to some of the beaches but its worth the effort!

I never tire of North California ( well from Big Sur upwards and i adore SF area) and New England , or Brittany and the South-West of France either.


The only place I can think of I really have no desire to go back to is Amsterdam ( worst holiday I had, in fact only bad holiday I ever had in 42 years... ).
WOW! Mooseketeer, your travel record is awesome!!! We're relative newbies to traveling but some of your destinations really make my luggage itch. I'm sorry you had a bad experience in Amsterdam. We were there briefly last year and really enjoyed it (discounting the crazy bicycle mobs). My strategy evolved to using the water taxis for getting around and it solved the problem by skipping the crowded street scene. It helped a lot that we were on a river boat and didn't have to deal with the notorious Amsterdam hotel problems. Overall, it was an interesting visit and one we will likely repeat.
Happy travels!

Japan-we got to see a lot of the middle, but I still want to visit Okinawa beaches and the mountains of the North. We didn't have time to visit the natural baths either, or many areas of Tokyo. And I love the food!

I want to go back to Scotland and see more of the Highlands and this time actually stay on the Isle of Skye instead of taking the ferry (in the pouring rain), zipping around the coast road and coming off at the bridge.

Actually, I would like to go back to New York City and finish where I left off. I was there for 10 days in '08, but arrived there right on time for the Nor'east storm, which inhibited my itinerary. And all those rains made the subways a literal sauna ~ I panicked (couldn't breathe) and had the police officer let me back out. Didn't do but a fraction of what I hoped to. But I thoroughly enjoyed the city and would like to give it another try, although I don't envision it happening too soon.

I would like to drive the Alaskan Highway again. Only this time I would not have everything I own crammed in the car and would have all of the gears in the transmission working. Last time I drove it I did not have second gear. Was quite the adventure.

Bluesmama - if you go to NYC again you might like riding the City Bus instead of the subway. That's what we have done when we visited both in 09 and 10. You can see so much that way and they are the same price as the subway. They have cross town and south north routes. We rode one up to the Natural History Museum. Then the next day we took one across 42nd street to the Pier 64 (I think it was) where the Circle line tours board for trips on the Hudson and the East Rivers. We are both Seniors so it is half price for us. The bus that is.

Key West. I loved everything about it, even the heat and humidity (It was August). It's got to be the best place on earth.
