I love to travel and have seen many places in the US, but would love someday to do some foreign travel. The first place I would like to see would be Rome, Italy. I would love to eventually visit each country and its cities and country side. And since we're talking "world" travel, I might love to venture into outer space to see the moon and the planets!How about you? If you could travel the world, where would you want to go first?Karen

To travel only by boats would be wonderful. We have an island off the Lake Michigan shore where all the travel is done by bike, horse, or horse and buggy. I went on honeymoon there years ago, and have been back one other time. They have a the Grand Hotel, world famous fudge, and the only way to get there is by ferry or small plane. Amazing, like going back in time. I hope you get to take your travels : )) Karen

This is a tricky topic Karen; I love travelling and it's just too hard to choose from among the many beautiful nooks and crannies in this big beautiful world. Hmmm I visited Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. The pagodas and Buddhist temples in Thailand are awesome. I have been to Japan twice in two different seasons, autumn and summer. Each visit is a different experience each time. Japan is a beautiful country, just like the Philippines. Like you, I too would like to explore Italy - all the cities there: Venice, Florence, Rome, etc. My other dream places are Prague, France, China, Spain, Germany, and other "old world" countries with rich cultural and architectural heritage. Oh, why not outer space too, if it is economically possible. It would be an amazing "out of this world" experience, right?

Oh, you have seen some wonderful places! I am happy that you got to do that, and hope you get to travel much more. And yes, why not outer space while we're at it?

Yes I have Karen, thanks. But my "itchy feet" and adventurous spirit still wants to explore more places. Oh, outer space travelling would be truly amazing. In the future, perhaps?
• United States

I have a feeling that in the future, it will be common enough. I think one of the reasons it is explored is to find "resources" in case earth ever runs out.

I would have said Australia but not anymore as they are filled with racist persons and recent attack on Indian student is one example of such and their govt doing nothing. So now my first choice is South Africa. yes now that , this country is no racist and it is a very beautiful country. I have seen lots of this country on television and i find the natural beauty of this country marvelous.
• United States

Africa, yes...that is a place I would love to explore, too. So many things I have not yet seen in this big beautiful world. It is sad that so much misery dwells within so much beauty. Thank you for commenting. Karen

If I were to tour around the world, the first place that I would want to go to is Paris. It has been known to be the city of romance and a fashionable world. I would want to see the latest fashion and the best place to go to is Paris. I would also want to see the Museums in Paris. Next, I would love to visit Rome, Italy and Switzerland.
• United States
14 Jun 09
Like you, I wish to see these marvelous places. The architecture and museums must be vast and wonderful. We in the US are a young country compared to most. We have our own beautiful things by the hundreds, but I would love to visit places with a long and large spot in history. : ) Karen

Wow! Thats a nice question. If I could travel the entire world I have some plans for my lifetime to visit. The sequence of my favorite liking spots are 1. Niagara Falls, 2. Grand Canyon, 3. The Great Amazon River, 4. Wild Life of Africa, 5. Switzerland, 6. Rome & Italy, 7. Pyramid, 8. Andaman & Nicobar Islands, 9. Lakshadwip & 10. Kailash & Manas Sarovar. These all are my first 10 preferences, but besides these I have so many choices. Mostly I like to visit the nature created by God. But God has not given me so much money to travel places like these. If anytime God will bless me, I must try to visit these favorite spots.
• United States
14 Jun 09
Oh yes, Africa is most definitely on my wish list of places to visit. Niagra Falls and The Grand Canyon are amazing sights, which I have been blessed to visit. Keep saving as much as can toward travel, and your wishes can be made to come true :) Karen

aha~ I have think of the question before,Maybe when I'm getting old and have enough money.... er,no,You can go wherever you like if you don't have enough money,right? Just to have some faith. In my widest imagination,I should go to the Africa ,sleeping with the lions and elephants. I hope my dream can be true one day! But at the present time,I'd like to enjoy my country's beautiful scenery,I found that in mylot,lots of people know the Great Wall,there is a old saying goes in China:"He Who had never been to the Great Wall is not a true man."I think it is the same with women,right? haha,welcome to China,my friends.
• United States
14 Jun 09
I have read so much about China, and yes, in America we have heard a great deal about the Great Wall : ) I do think travel expenses vary a lot, so someday soon I will research that. And faith helps with all dreams : ) Karen

That is what I have done. It is amazing how right within one's own country, there are so many different places and people that take us into another world from our local area. A good plan, one I hope you soon get to pursue : ) Karen

I have known Irish people here in America. They tell of the beauty of their homeland. And in pictures and movies, I can see by the vividness of the scenery why it is called the Emerald Isle! I hope you do get to go someday : ) Karen

I really love traveling and have been to 52 different countries so far in my lifetime. I really wish that I could visit South America because there is lots there that I would like to see. I would want to go to Machu Picchu, Cartagena de Indies and Rio de Janeiro. I would be able to try to speak some Spanish in Peru and Colombia. Next I would fly across to Asia to do some island hopping and snorkeling. There would be so many different places to enjoy visiting.

Fifty-two countries! Now that is indeed wonderful and amazing. For sure, I imagine one day you will be able to see South America. In pictures and movies, the terrain is fantastic. It would also be lovely to meet the people and soak up the culture there. : ) Karen

Hi, i am from Malaysia. Yes, i like travelling too, but i do not travel very often because it needs quite an amount of money. Usually i go for trips with my gang of close friends, and so far we have only went for places in our country or our neighbour country such as Singapore. I always wish that i will have the chance to travel further, to foreign countries. If i could travel the entire world, wow, that will be awesome! The first place i will go is Taiwan, a place that i've long for. I do not have any special reason why i choose it, basically it's just because i want to go there to see the beautiful places of interest there, and also try the nice food there. The other places i would like to travel to are Hong Kong, China, France, Germany, New Zealand,...haha so many of them. Anyway, this is only an 'if',haha. Have a nice day!
• United States

Oh yes, it does take money to travel. I hope we both someday have enough to travel to our heart's contentment! Such a wonderful way to learn personally about our big beautiful world and her people.

Paris in the springtime? I, too, have heard it is beautiful and romantic. I've only seen it in the movies and in pictures. How wonderful it would be to actually be there in person for a while. :D
