You better make a trip to India now. You will have so much to see. I have covered many countries but now after my accident I do not think I will take the risk of traveling although my doctor says I am fine.
The cruise that we took was to the Bahamas I liked it. It was a 14 decked ship with different themes. We had enough of entertainment and although there were people we did not see them at one place except for that Captain's dinner
that is why you brought up India, your from India, could not figure that out. Was trying to read above to see if anyone else brought up that area, but could not find it.
Hope you can do some traveling somewhere, some how.

I travel around my country much but have not been anywhere far. I would love to go to iceland, all that ice! My ideal holiday destination is the carribean though, so I can have a taste of the beaches there.

My next year plans are to do North Scotland, some of Ireland. England never did draw me, I am not a city person, and congestion would get on my nerves after a while.


There are lots of parts of England that don't have towns or cities and no congestions.

This month we were walking in the Lake District and whilst out walking we rarely saw more than a dozen people all day. In the evenings we were able to go into small villages or towns for a meal. These are some of the views.

Early on in the year we went to Capadoccia in Eastern Turkey. A fascinating place with an interesting history.

Later this year we're going to Istanbul and early next year we are going to travel through Northern India and Bhutan. We shall start in Delhi then on to Darjeeling, Gangtok, Phuntsholing, Thimphu, Paro and ending up in Calcutta.

How many of those names do you know? :D

The English country side does look nice, will consider. The other places you mentioned are some I would personally cheer away from thinking that there are issues there.

There really aren't any problems in those places. As with everything else, it's only the bad things that hit the headlines.

I know a lot of English people that won't go to the U.S. because they think the place is overrun with race battles and gang warfare! That's about all we get from the media. :eek:

Interesting what the media says about the U.S. guess that is why people are tearing down the walls to get in.

I know there are a lot of places in the world I have not seen, but a lot I have.

When we are in Key West, we meet up with a few of our friends. two of which were on the TV show "strange inheritance" here is a link of a clip of it. Perhaps if some of you in the USA who get "on demand" can find the complete show. It was wonderful.

We've just returned from a cultural tour of Turkey, starting in Istanbul and then touring through the country to a lot of ancient sites. The architecture and scenery were spectacular, food great and people very friendly.

This amphitheatre was built 1,850 years ago, seats 15,000 people and is still in use. My old legs had a struggle climbing all those steps. :)

This magnificent building, Hagia Sophia, has been a Greek Orthodox church, a Roman catholic Cathedral and a Mosque. Since 1931 it ha been a museum.

I haven only been in Thailand once and I was way too young to have a camera but I remembered it was a very beautiful place. I also have been in Cabo Saint Lucas for one short day from the cruise ship. I would love to go back to Thailand now that I am older and have a camera :)

I have traveled a little bit. My grandparents live in Greece so I have traveled to visit them and I was in England last year because I am for whatever reason infatuated with the country (my tv is on BBC America constantly). Other than that though I have no desire or need to leave America. There are more places here that are interesting and exciting than I could ever hope to enjoy. I've never been to the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone National Park, Mount Rushmore, Carlsbad Caverns...I could go on and on with all the amazing places I have yet to discover. Plus, I'd rather spend my money in my own country...

I enjoy visiting other countries to see the culture, way of life and history of other peoples. (y)

Which part of India will cover your trip?

This time we shall be starting in Delhi and having another look round for a few days before flying on to Bagdora. Then driving on to Darjeeling. From there we take the long drive to Gangtok (Sikkim).

After touring around there we shall make an even longer drive over the border to Phuntsholing in Bhutan. We shall drive through Bhutan to Thimphu, then Paro. From Paro we shall take a short flight back into India to Calcutta.

I've always had a wanderer's soul. I'm still quite young but I've travelled to almost all the countries in my region of Asia. I've been to Hong Kong (my first), Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore. I'm planning to finish my Asian trip before I travel to Europe and the Americas not only because it's cheaper but I also want to start closer to home. One day I know I'll be able to reach Alaska, it seems like a winter wonderland from the pictures.

I've unfortunately never gotten the chance to travel to bigger, beautiful nature places. I've been to a few cities, but otherwise, never quite had the money or time for it. At least not yet, but it is definitely a dream! I feel like even if you don't think you have the confidence for it, you should go for it anyway if you have the means! Don't make yourself regret it!

Make sure you keep that passion, otherwise life becomes dull.

I have always wanted to visit Alaska. I've only heard things about it, that it is cold and barren and dark most of the time, however, I am curious to learn more about it. I have always wanted to visit the 50 states, and Alaska would be the perfect destination to begin my travels. My aunt traveled to Alaska when she was about my age, and she said it was beautiful beyond measure. I want to see a moose up close, and I want to travel the frozen mountains of this mysterious land.

I love to travel, and we've had the opportunity to do quite a bit of it. Living in Japan right now is neat -- I loved New Zealand too, there's so much natural beauty there. I also love the USA (my husband's home country - so much to see and do!) and Australia is my home country which I miss quite a bit.
