There are many places in this world that I would love to visit. I hear such amazing things about Paris and Italy and I have seen such beautiful Pictures. Sadly I have not been to these places. Have you ever been to a place you have been longing to go?

Hi Joseph! I have been longing to go to Japan ever since I was in my teenage years (ever since I became an anime fan ). Unfortunately, the chance have not yet to come. I would love to visit the many shrines and temples in Japan and experience the many rich traditions there. I would love to join festivals and parade. I have seen in pictures and videos how fun it would be to be part of those parades. I really wish I will be able to go there soon before I cannot travel anymore.

I too want to visit Japan. I love the architecture of their temples and shrines and I love the harmony with nature in some places. The trees blend in with the buildings. I hope one day you will get there my friend .

I live in Austin, Texas but right now, I am in Los Angeles for the AARP Convention. Los Angeles was not one of my preferred places to go to but I m having a great time. Next year, the convention is is New Orleans and I am really looking forward to that. There are so many places that I wast to see. I try to enjoy everywhere that I am at but I really want to go on a cruise. I am shooting for 2013.

I just returned from visiting a couple whom I have not seen in many year. They have traveled all over the world. I saw pictures of where they have been. They are going to Hawaii in November and have a cruise booked for October 2012. What a life.. They have gone on many cruises. I try to enjoy everywhere I go to its fullest.

Yes, I have always wanted to go to Egypt since I was a little girl. The pyramids and the mystery on how it was built always fascinated me. I would like to see the mummys and enter into the pyramids.

I have been to almost all those places which i longed to see within the country.I have a desire to travel to several places out of India like Europe and America but I have been unable to do so.I feel there is a possibility of fulfilling these desires in the near future.I will then be fulfilling my desire to see the places of my choice.

I go where I want to go, no matter how long I have to save with that and I also don't care about a low budget travel. The most important thing for me is to be at the place I want to be. I don't care about a hotel or restaurants etc. I wonder what these amazing things are you heard about Paris and Italy. I think every country has it's beauty and history you just need to open up your eyes and not think that the grass at your neighbours is always greener. If you keep focussed on that you will never see the beauty and amazing things surrounding you. Ps if you really want you will find a way to get there.

No. I have only been to one place that I wanted to see and that was the ocean in Panama City Beach, Florida. I really want to go to the Caribbean though.

Yes, there are many places of interest around the world I would like to visit. One place which I wanted to visit was Mount Fuji (Fujiyama) in Japan. And, I made it. While on a visit to Tokyo, I took the time to go on to Mount Fuji. It was such a breath-taking site, so beautiful from a distance and as one gets closer. This is indeed one of the unique places in the world.

I was not yet able to go to the place where I really want to go. I actually had a dream of going to Singapore. Many have mentioned that the place is so clean and order was really implemented. How I wish I could really go there.

I have been to about half of the places I really have wanted to go to like Australia especially Sydney, Auckland especially Northland, Samoa, French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, Fiji, Cape Town and the Garden Route, Vancouver in Canada, Cartagena De Indias in Colombia, the Seychelles and the Maldives. My best trip was to Mexico, Belize and Guatemala. I still have places on my travel wish list that I haven't yet been to like Machu Picchu in Peru, Rio in Brazil, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Madagascar, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, China and Japan. I have a plan for the next 5 years to see as many as I can. So we will see how I get on. Good luck for lots more traveling.

Actually there are many places on the world I would like to visit but I have been never there, e.g. London, Jerusalem, Egypt, Buenos Aires and more. But I've been in Paris, Rome, Berlin, Venice. So I've nothing to complain. The world has really wonderful places.

I've been in this two places. I went to Italy to work and I visit Paris while I waited for my flight back. I didn't have time to see much in Italy, because of my job and I stayed just 10 hours in Paris, so I visited just a few places, but I hope you can go there. Both are beautiful. I want to back there to visit. But I really want to go to London. I've never been there, but I think it will be a interesting trip. Other place that I want to go is Prague. And I want to do a car trip here in Brazil, like go out and just drive to a lot of places, but without a defined destiny. Happy mylotting.
