    I've heard the same thing about Croatia. Where do y'all like to go...and can you get by being monolingual English?

    I visited Turkey last R&R -- fantastic place! Istanbul, Antalya, Cappodoccia. I want to actually relax next time so I'm thinking Phuket, Thailand. Any recommendations?

    oh my goodness. check my profile page for the list of the 40+ countries i've been to. working in international development and humanitarian assistance has brought me to interesting places!

    but i have lived in: Toronto (current), Johannesburg (hey, its beautiful AND dangerous!), New York (at the turn of the millennium pre-Sept11), Nairobi (in the early 2000s), Harare (in the mid-90s when it was the jewel of Africa), Hong Kong and Singapore (as a child of an academic we travelled around a lot).

    I love Joburg for all its crazyness and I miss it, as a contemporary African city. Cape Town was never my residence, but I knew it very well, and miss it and its natural beauty of mountains, and 2 oceans. Nairobi is dusty and old, but its colonial history is still visible and the nature is phenomenal. I highly recommend it as a travel destination.

    My bucket list includes the old cities of Europe - Vienna, Prague, Budapest, and St Petersburg. I want to see the architecture, enjoy a boat ride on the Danube, and hear a Mozart symphony in a hall where he performed the piece.

    Go to Paris first, Sydney Australia doesn't feel like a foreign country since people speak English there. I've been to Paris for 2 weeks back in 2006, I think you will love it. icon_biggrin.gif They have music, lights, men, culture, architecture....Le Marais is a pretty gay district, I stayed in MonMartre north side, pretty cool too.

    I am a little envious of you, you live in England, must be cheap to book flights around Europe to visit so many great cities over there. It costs so much for a ticket here on the West Coast Cali. So I ended up going to Vegas a lot to get that Euro feel at the Casinos, not the same thing hehe. icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gif

    Lived in and around Harare, Zimbabwe, the Mozambique coast on and off, and in Andalusia, Spain. Moving to the UK in September.

    kingmoHarare (in the mid-90s when it was the jewel of Africa)


    Harare (and Zimbabwe as a whole) is still a great place to live and visit believe it or not.

    Travelled all over Southern Africa. JHB, Cape Town, enjoyed every minute of it!
    Madrid, Barcelona and Granada were stunning cities too.

    Would really like to travel around the rest of Europe when I get to the UK. North America, China and Australia are up on my list too!

    London UK,
    Maspalomas (Canary Islands),
    Rome, Milan, Assisi (Italy),
    Windhoek (Namibia),
    Nairobi (Kenya),
    Maputo (Mozambique),
    Kinshasa (DR Congo, when it was still called Zaire),
    Abidjan (Ivory Coast)
    Swaziland
    All over Israel.


    Places I still want to visit:
    Israel (again - going in July)
    Croatia
    Brazil
    Argentina
    Zanzibar (Tanzania)
