Two categories:

Places I haven't been: South Africa (is it blasphemous to say such a thing on the Europe forum?). I have been fascinated by the politics, history music and culture of this country for so long, and would love to go there -- on safari through Kruger National Park, go to Cape Town, etc. etc.

Places I have been: Israel. What a wonderful place to wonder about time and history and our place in it. Fabulous sites, great hiking, incredible stories.

I took a trip to the Alaska Inside Passage, and Glacier Bay. It was some of the most spectacular scenery I ever saw.

I remember having seen (costly) travels to antarctica. The idea was that you went there on the boat who supplied the scientific stations. I suppose it still exists. In was on a french boat, but I suspect they weren't the only ones who had this idea...

i have travelled many places, but last year i went to Beijing. Amazing history, architecture, food and wonderful people. Not to mention climbing the Great Wall. I'd love to go back and explore it more.

It would have to be Mount Rushmore in South Dakota. I hear the people are so friendly, and the landscape breathtakingly beauitiful.

Paris. It is nearly a cliche for Americans to be enamored of Paris but for me it is my favorite destination. I admire the concentration of great art and design as well as the people who appreciate those disciplines. I think it's great to find a city with activity on the streets; with people discussing books, politics, movies and all of the ephemera that is the woven fiber of our world. It may be an overly romanticized version of life in Paris, fueled by its contrast with my own rust-belt existence in the American midwest, but that has always been my experience while in French capital
