Anyone feel like talking travel? If you had to pick one country per continent to visit (whether it be a new place for you or already visited), which would you choose? Hit the link if you want to see the list of countries. You also get to pick an island...

Africa:
Asia (includes middle east):
North America (includes central America):
South America:
Europe:
Australia (which is its own continent, so let''s include New Zealand in the choice options):
Plus one island:

AND, do you have any desire to ever make the trek to see Antarctica?

That is a great question! I love traveling. Here''s my list:

Africa: Kenya for a luxury safari
Asia: China or India, I can''t decide!
North America: Costa Rica!
South America: Argentina
Europe: Greece
Australia: Definitely Australia... Melbourne, Sydney, and Tazmania. Its hard to forego NZ though! So I will pick NZ as my island
Plus one island: unless you make me pick another -- I would pick The Seychelles!

AND, do you have any desire to ever make the trek to see Antarctica? DEFINITELY. Most likely from the tip of Argentina though.

Ha, Hikerchick, now I get the meaning of the username. Looks like you''re not interested in going anywhere flat!

Here''s mine

Africa: Morocco
Asia: Vietnam
North America: Costa Rica
South America: Argentina or Chile
Europe: Croatia or Ireland (love both)...or Turkey (never been). Can''t decide!
Australia/New Zealand: NZ. Been to Australia several times
Island: Not sure...never really thought about islands. Maybe Tahiti...or as boring as this sounds, Maui. Never been there!

And I would love to go to Antartica too! How funny...I thought most people didn''t. But I guess if you responded to this thread, you love travel and will go anywhere!

I love to travel so here goes
Africa and Indian Ocean: Maldives
Asia: Singapore or Tokyo
North America: Anywhere in Canada (never been) Victoria sounds beautiful
South America: Rio de Janeiro
Europe: Ireland, Croatia, Switzerland ETA: Greece Islands!!!
Austrialian Great Barrier Reef (I want to swim with all the fish)!!!!!


I have a close friend who is a medical doctor who has gone to Antartica and lived there for 6 months and it sounds boring and interesting all at the same time. I would like to see what it looks like for a day.

Cool Thread!!
