EDIT: yes, i agree. there are some wonderful cityscapes of hong kong. i used to have one taken from one of the apartment blocks in a hi-rise bulding, and you could see the river and the other apartment blocks on the other side, together with the hills in the background.

honk kong and rio have to be the two cities i most want to visit. my wife said, if i ever went to rio, she'd send a bunch of bodyguards with me to protect me from the trouble i had every intention of getting in.

sugarloaf mountain in rio gives the city a lot of uniqueness. if you went to the wrong area of the city, you would need bodyguards anyway :p

actually, this gives me an idea. a new thread entitled "Places you've always wanted to visit".
there are just so many places that i've love to visit. i've always wanted to go to Thailand. i think there is a mysterious charm about the place with its buddhist temples and vast history.

yup, i'd need bodyguards in thailand, too.

Great Britain (likely to hit at least Ireland by the year's end), Germany (oh, SO much I want to do there, waiting 'til I've learned a lot more German, though), Finland (during the warmest part of the year, I'm afraid), Japan (Tokyo and then the country side), Australia (need to stash an XB Falcon in my luggage somehow), Egypt (I'm an ancient Egypt geek), and so much more.

There just isn't enough money or time in one solitary life, it seems. Ah, well.

New Zealand, Japan and also one of those tropical islands where all the chicks are topless.

Scuba diving in The Blue Hole (Belize) http://away.com/ideas/central_america/belize_lighthouse_reef.html

"The Lost City" of Machu Picchu (Peru)

Lots of other places but those two are top of the list.

germany, norway, tibet, japan, usa, every single mountain in the world (just dreaming...)

March 26th, 2007, 06:44 AM
The Netherlands, India and a second to Tibet. Alexandra David-Néel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexandra_David-Neel) is my all time hero.

nepal would be cool. hanging out on a mountain, having archery contests and singing beatles songs.

Italy, Russia, Japan for me. Go east!

March 26th, 2007, 08:45 AM
I'd like to visit Europe some day, especially the UK and France. I'd also like to see some of the Far East, maybe Tokyo or Hong Kong. And honestly... I'd like to see Antarctica, too.

March 26th, 2007, 09:25 AM
The Antarctic. There are penguins there ;).

March 26th, 2007, 09:26 AM
Akihabara, Japan! It's like the mecca for otakus. :p

And some day, Europe. Just backpacking for a few months, looking at stuff. That would be fun. :)

March 26th, 2007, 09:34 AM
I'd like to visit Japan, Russia, Indonesia, Malaysia.

March 26th, 2007, 11:57 AM
The UK

A retired couple I know have been going on bicycle tours of various European countries one per year the past many years. Sounds like a great, fun way to see things! :)

Katchatka in northern Siberia and Alaska. I'll have to reaquire my hunting license before I go there, though.

March 26th, 2007, 02:51 PM
England. That's it. That's my goal. Once I go to England, I'm done. I'm saving up for it now, and I'll get enough money in, oh, 10 years.

Can I stay with one of you english folks? We can have an ubuntu party! Make fun of ATI! :)

Mainly Germany for me. I've only been in 2 countries my entire life... actually 3: my native land Colombia, the US, and the Bahamas islands.

March 26th, 2007, 04:21 PM
In the US: Maine.
Don't know why, I've always wanted to see it.

The world:
Italy--Venice and Rome. Australia and New Zeland.

Then I wanna go back to England and tour the rest of the country. And also France. I loved both places when I was there 15 years ago.

March 26th, 2007, 04:23 PM
I would love to go to Sydney, London and Japan.

March 26th, 2007, 04:31 PM
our next trip will be washington d.c. (never been). i guess spring would be the best time to go (maybe next spring break we'll go). i'd like to spend a whole week in the smithsonian.

March 26th, 2007, 06:51 PM
Norway (hopefully this summer), New-Zealand and North Sweden (been on south).

March 26th, 2007, 07:01 PM
Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico (again)

March 26th, 2007, 07:21 PM
Las Vegas , Silicon Valley ,Redmond Washington and Amstedam.

Places that you've always wanted to visit

The toilet.

Seriously, the kitchen for some food.

March 26th, 2007, 09:35 PM
More of Europe in general. I've been to a few places outside the US though...Ireland, Hungary, Portugal, and Japan.
