You can take a bus all the way to the Panama Canal.

Much of that is accessible by train / sleeper / vista car. You can get $5/day rental cars from Priceline for your layovers for more 'venturous' field excursions.

You can do lots of the Colorado River w/o getting your hair wet (or even your feet for that matter). While out west, take the Rogue River and Lake Chelan Mail boats for scenic rides that are more conducive to a land-lubber. My last Snake River canoe trip through the Tetons was not too wet... But thepeaceful quiet and pastoral setting was a bit entrancing.

I only hope I can live for about 10 more yrs (without healthcare) AND they still offer Golden Eagle / NP pass. I could count the number of annual NP passes I have bought for $50 - $100 / but it is WAY over 30...

All things being equal and safe travel is a reality--

1. Israel
2. Egypt
3. Africa
4. Austrialia
5. China

But still have to do North American continent first.

I've been internationally a lot recently, although I have many places still on my list I would perhaps like to focus on domestic travel which I have neglected...so many incredible places right in my backyard that I haven't been to:

- Mt. Rushmore
- Wash. DC and Philadelphia
- Yellowstone!!! I cannot believe I haven't been yet! shame on me
- Would like to go to the Florida keys again, last time I went there was a tropical storm..even so it was great
- More of NYC, been only once and loved it..perhaps spend some time in the Adirondack which I have heard so much about
- New Orleans again: been over a decade ago once but would like to see it now
- Bryce and Zion National parks
- Crater lake, Oregon and around Astoria
- Glacier national park in Montana
- More hiking around the Cascades - Mt. Rainer and Mt. St. Helens... I've been here and felt it was among the most beautiful places I have seen in the world without a doubt, I will have to return to this place.

One thing is that airfares are rising quite fast and it's generally becoming much more expensive to travel

I have family members who have been to all those places except Norway and they loved them all!

On your list, I'd probably go with Italy - the Italian Alps or Tuscany
