He did say "and elsewhere if you wish". In that light,
1. Italy
2. France
3. Turkey
4. Malaysia/Indonesia
5. Bits of Australia I haven't paid due attention to.
6. Pacific NW USA and Canada, but not before the Americans stop fingerprinting their allies.
7, 8, 9, 10 - plenty of ideas but short of the readies.

Subject to the usual order changes forced on us all (finance usually).

1. Thailand
2. Vietnam
3. Sri Lanka
4. Costa Rica
5. Australia
6. Cambodia
7. Morocco
8. Peru
9. Goa
10. Botswana
11. China
12. Malaysia
13. China
14. Borneo
15. Eire
16. Cuba
17. Czech Republic
18. Holland
19. New Zealand
20. Brazil
21. Venezuala (SP.)
22. Canada
23. France
24. I could continue.

Somewhere high on the list would be New England, California, New York, New Orleans etc etc. Because of the difficultie with changes to immigration regulations I have chosen not to visit. The security checks at Heathrow are fantasstic yet I am still checked for weapons on entering the USA. Absolutely ridiculous. Are we part of the coalition or not ?

It's up to you, SidB. Probably better that you stay away.

mrwunrfl, that's a good example of the attitude I'm talking about. In my travels I try to be as courteous as I reasonably can. I expect the same in return. Sadly, this was not the case the last time I visited the US. In UK travel forums I have heard this said many times.

I can't believe that only two people listed Brazil. It's an incredible paradise...especially the Salvador area in the region of Bahia and that whole Bahia area...blue...blue...water and amazing beauty...a true paradise. Happy Travels!

2. Myanmar
3. Luang Prabang
4. Angkor Wat
5. Tokyo (would be higher except for $)
6. Paris
7. Italy-Amalfi Coast
8. India
9. Australia
10.New Zealand

Yes, Bob it is time for a tally - and don't forget those all important votes for New England, Needham and Hartford. Didn't see any votes for Cambridge though - must be the political climate

Have the provisional votes been counted? How about the long lines to vote? Cambridge is a state of mind and soul. Mere physical visits cannot transport anyone to that higher plane. That's why Bob and I have dinner in Brookline. There's a border that he cannot/will not cross. I do note for the record that a tally of places without weighting them by where they are mentioned in posters' wish lists is unrepresentative of how much each location is desired. For instance two number 10 mentions should not get higher ranking than a single entry at the top of someone's list. Typical Republican polling data.

let me "flip flop" a bit and add in the moon...one vote...

it should be noted that the ve5ry best travel book store in the northeast is located in cambridge, ma and thus one has to travel to communist enclaves on occasion....
