Lake Tahoe
Sonoma Wine Country
Florence
London
Wilmington, NC - only one night there but surprised with how much we loved the place. Definitely worth an entire long weekend, more with beach time.

Of course, Paris. Also Florence, Venice and Sicily. They are the same places I want to return to again and again.

fisches: Arizona? Are you sure?

Did you know it rained here today for the first time in 143 days?

(But it is true that you never have to shovel it.)

Hungary for sure!! Every year I go there, it's harder for me to return home. 9 weeks and two days, I'll return there!! This time with my wonderful husband, for our 10th Wedding Anniversary. He'll leave for home after 2 weeks and I'll stay on for another 4 weeks. This will be his first time there, and he'll get to meet my family and friends finally. Alizka

Paris, because I was alone and could go anywhere and have not seen enough.
My husband prefers the other France.
But I do too but want my fill of Paris.

I'd definitely have to say Rome because even though I did all the basic things in six days, there was so much more to do. I would have loved to have stayed longer and savored the city more.

Also, I was like AnnW about Venice. At first I didn't get it. We arrived in the afternoon, it was difficult trying to roll all our luggage through the city, and everything looked deserted and a little scary. Boy, did things look different by the next morning!

Also, did I miss something? I was very aware when I was in Venice of being disappointed a lot by being in certain places and finding everything closed for the afternoon. I never seem to find that in Rome. Are more places in Rome open in the afternoon than in Venice?

Resurrecting an old thread here...

I'll never get my fill of Paris, I guess. But the places that really stand out for me are the "natural splendor" sites...such as the Berner Oberland and the Isle of Skye.

Tuscany too.

I have to 2nd Mr Go's vote for the Isle of Skye. Absolutely breath-taking in natural beauty.

Nice. I stopped there to "chill" for a few days after finishing a year in school in Florence. Ended up making trips back there to explore museums.

Pretty much anywhere in Italy, which is exactly why I continue to go back there!

I have the misfortune of feeling that way about most places I go! Of course, I like most movies I see, too, as I'm just so happy not to be worrying about work, having a messy house, completing my gardening, etc.

The most recent place that caused me to feel that way was Rome. Three days definitely are not enough, but I am glad I had at least those 3 days. I can't wait to go back, but there are just too many other places I want to see, so who knows when I will make it back!

I'm just back this week, so I need to say Lake Como -- Varenna specifically. Also, the Cotswolds, Venice and the French countryside.

My body is at work, but my heart is still in Italy.

I would say Paris since I didn't get a chance to stay more than a couple of days.

I would definately go back to Paris for a couple of days just to walk around and get some much better photos!
