St. Petersburg, Russia - supposed to be one of the most expensive cities in world to visit. Why is that? Cost will keep me from going it seems
China
The UK
Marrakesh, Morocco
Prague, Czech Republic
Choosing just 5 was very hard

A radio station in my area used to run a contest that offered trips to almost anywhere in the world. It made me nuts when people won and picked places like Hawaii. I mean Hawaii is nice but if I got offered a free trip anywhere in the world I would pick a place it wasn't likely I was ever going to get to go!

Warning, I can't count ( apologies ).

First of all I should think about where I have been and why.

1. England
2. Scotland
3. Wales
4. France
5. Germany
6. Italy
7. Sicily --- yes, I know it's part of Italy, but it's special
8. Bahamas
9. Bermuda
10. Alaska --- yes, I know it's part of the USA but I love the North Slope ( Barrow )
11. Canada
12. USA --- almost every state, except maybe the Dakotas and Maine
13. Mexico --- Mexico City and Queretero
14. Hawai --- yes, I know it's part of the USA, not my favorite place, but been there
15. Japan
16. Hong Kong --- I still think of it as a country
17. Singapore
18. India --- Madras
19. Australia --- Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Darwin, Adelaide
20. Tasmania --- yes, I know it's part of Australia but it is also special
21. New Zealand
22. Tonga
23. Solomon Islands
24. Nauru
25. Papua New Guinea --- Port Moresby, Lae, Wewak, and Manus Island
26. South Africa --- Johannesburg and Cape Town

I've probably missed a few.

Now, where would I like to go? I'm allowed one for every country I've already been to ...

1. Nepal
2. Tibet --- I still think of it as a country
3. Ceylon ( Sri Lanka )
4. Russia --- Moscow, St.Petersburg
5. Greenland
6. New Zealand --- again, can't get enough of this one
7. South America --- all over !
8. South Africa --- again to Cape Town
9. Malta
10. Channel Islands --- the English kind, not the Californian kind
11. Isle of Man
12. Isles of Scilly
13. Ireland --- I just cannot believe I haven't been there
14. Ascension Island
15. St. Helena
16. Corsica
17. Sardinia
18. Falkland Islands
19. Siberia --- Tomsk ?
20. Puerto Rico
21. Maldives
22. Viet Nam
23. India --- again
24. Seychelles
25. Comoro Islands
26. Rhodesia --- remember this one ??

1. New Zealand/Australia (one or both)
2. Phillipines
3. Greece
4. W. Canada
5. US Midwest

Wow, I actually had to struggle to come up with five. There was a time when I would have loved to explore every corner of the world, but that changed after my trip to Tibet. Maybe travelling for days at high altitude in a jeep over rocky terrain (roads washed out by rain), seeing very few signs of civilization, had something to do with it. I asked myself, "What am I doing here?" and still don't have an answer. Now if I'm going to travel, I usually have my reason figured out beforehand!

My list:

2. Australia
3. Togo
4. China
5. Every country in the world!

Ok, I'll settle with Sri Lanka on number 5 then...
I can say England and have that on number 2, 3, 4 and 5, but since I've already been there several times, I don't think it counts really.

(I would really, really, really like to travel to Katrineholm in Sörmland, Sweden right now too... hm...)
