(I just wrote this in response to Banshee's post.)

So far I've been to:

- Canada (Victoria and Vancouver, I have several friends up there, so I've spent a lot of time there. I know Victoria very well especially.)

- Belgium (Antwerp. My parents lived there for a year and half, so I lived with them for 3 months. My first European experience, and it was fantastic. Antwerp still feels like a home away from home. Our apartment was right downtown, overlooking one of the main busy market roads. Excellent people watching!)

- England (London, Southampton, Portsmouth, Brighton, Bournemouth, Bath, Salisbury, Boston, Stonehenge, and various other places that we drove through. My boyfriend lives in London so I lived there for a year, and still travel there frequently. I also lived in Southampton for several months. Bath was one of my favorite places.)

- France (La Rochelle, St. Malo, St. Juire, Laval, lots of Northern countryside and small villages. My bf's mother is French, so we spent a good deal of time there with her family. I haven't made it to Paris yet, but intend to soon!)

- Spain (Bilbao. We took a cruise there as a present from family. (They were having a good deal for the month of November. ;) Huge boat, enormous waves in the Bay of Biscay. I didn't know waves could crash over the bow of a boat that large and still spray windows on the 8th story. That was an adventure. Great city, the Guggenheim museum is a must see.)

That's it so far. These are the places I'm planning to experience at some point in my life:

Japan
Prague
Italy
Ireland
Scotland
India
Australia
More Spain
More France
Southwest England (Cornwall, etc.)
Belize
Morocco
Thailand
Greece
The U.S. (I've only been in WA and the states surrounding it. I should probably get to know my own country better.)
Turkey
Mongolia

okay, nearly everywhere..

I keep telling Max to take me to Paris someday..

We were about a 4 hour drive from Paris, which is nothing by American standards, but for Europeans it's a "long trip". bah. :)

pffft

it is a long way from St Juire. That's 4 hours by the autoroute and then more back to the ferry. Lot of driving when we're only in France 5 or so days at a time ;)

Anyway, I'd prefer to go to Paris rather than a flying visit. It's a city that doesn't lend itself to the odd day here and there. If we're going, we're going correctly :)

It's odd, the more places I go to that I didn't really feel the urge to go, the more places I actually want to go.

SE Asia wasn't a high priority other than Japan and since my 2 weeks in Malaysia I'm all keen to go back to Malaysia and to Laos and Thailand at least.

Ditto North Africa, but actually Morocco is the only place I want to go (back) to. Course I might add Tunisia to that soon.

Um... and I'm taking you (Naomi) to Belize as soon as we can. I love that place and assuming it's not been spoiled by tourism you will too.

Hmm... then there's Tibet and Nepal. And Petra (not too worried about the rest of Jordan).

I like travelling pretty much anywhere to be honest, there doesn't seem to be many places I'm going to dislike. Of course having parents like mine helps, I get a decent heads up on a lot of countries ;)
