Maybe someone already did this, but where is your dream vacation spot and why?
I really really really want to go to Australia. One because I love to snorkel and its been a life long dream to snorkel/dive the Great Barrier Reef. Two..in college I studied a very interesting bird called a Bower Bird and I really want to see them in the wild. Three the wildlife in general seems interesting..I want to see kangaroos in their natural habitat! And it seems like the landscape is really beautiful something I appreciate. I also like visiting new and different places and people and after having the good fortune to get to know some Aussie's in the last couple of years, and seeing how truly different and interesting (and really nice people IMO) they are from Americans I really want to go!
Where's yours? :hi:

1. Hawaii. Cause of the waves. I'm not a surfer so much as a body surfer.
Some day.....

3. with the right person, location is essentially irrelevant
with the exception of most of Africa, Iraq, Afghanistan, Turkey, Egypt, Libya, Iran, Yemen, etc etc


Thanks, Bush!

14. Actually my Uncle went to Egypt recently
and loved it. Places like Cairo apparantly are very tourist friendly.

15. hmmm
I'd heard travel to Egypt wasn't a great idea for 'Murkans recently, but perhaps that's what I get for listening to the State Department.


Always wanted to see the Pyramids and Sphinx.

Like you - Australia

Get there ... it is SO worth it. Spend at least 2 weeks but aim for a month. And you are right, Aussies are nice.

8. Aussies are great;
know a great Aussie writer, radio personality.

I'd like to go there to. Right now, I'm thinking of old trip to Bermuda; LOVE lolling in the waves, and lovely coves.
