(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:

More Spain
More France
Southwest England (Cornwall, etc.)
The U.S. (I've only been in WA and the states surrounding it. I should probably get to know my own country better.)

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. :)

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 ;)
