2) Shanghai/Taipei - 2006

3) Bangkok/Phuket or Pattaya - 2007

4) Paris/London - 2008 but only if the dollar recovers and is strong against the Euro and the French get an attitiude adjustment. (frontal labotomy?)

Jerusalem really should be on everybody else's list, IMHO.

The first two are booked:
1) Buenos Aires*, with day trip to Colonia, Uruguay
2) Thailand (Bangkok & Chiang Mai) and stops in Siem Reap, Seoul, Kyoto*, and Tokyo*.

The next three are very close in ranking (you could call them 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 and then Australia would be 4) and I have done a significant amount of research on this year:
3) Moscow & St Petersburg and a stop in Copenhagen
4) India (golden triangle) with stop in Vienna
5) South Africa with side-trip to Victoria Falls

The following have about equal weighting:
6) Australia
7) Italy
8) Ireland
9) Toronto
10) Grand Canyon

*=been there before, never been to the other places.
