Traveling the world doesnt mean going around the world, it means taking time off and seeing parts of the world that you have never explored before. I believe I was born to travel . . . my late father said that I had the personality to everywhere but sitting still . . how right he was. If you had the resources and the time Would you? and what would be a GRAND World travel to you? I said to my children - if they really wanted to spoil me, they can anytime buy me a MULTIPLE stop Flight ticket . . . . 25 or more stops so that I can visit all my friends everywhere!

I would love to see the world, but I would rather they brought it to me. I don't relish the idea of long flights and multiple stops on multiple planes to multiple places.

That is how my hubby thinks - he doesnt travel well - I love the planes, trains, stations and airports - docks and ships too - Long roadtrips - you name it - I love being on the move

I do like flying short trips... but for long haul flights... if I could be transported like they do in star trek (beam me up scotty) or stargate...then all the better....

You and I are both cruising girls - however I would fly all over and stop long enough to have a train journey with friends and cruise here and there . . . imagine that

I love to travel, there are many part of the world that I have never seen. Two countries that I would like to visit are New Zealand, where @valmnz lives, and South Africa, your country. I know that it's expensive but I would also love to visit Japan.

@LadyDuck money really complicates life, doesn't it! It would be so much easier if we could say have bag, will travel.

@valmnz If we could live without the problem of money life would be so much better. I am sure that the world would be better, no greediness, more peace no conflicts. It's only a dream.

Yes! Totally! One thing you can do is actually live for about 6 months in different places. Especially with English skills you can quickly find a teaching job in many countries!

Sadly for South Africans Visa are not available to us - just limited times in each country - even Australia - we can only stay 90 days. If we apply for jobs - then the company has to get us visa's - things are changing - but we cannot even get into UK - We dont need Visa's for Ireland as they are our sister country with New Zealand

@Inlemay Yes... visas suck... I agree... But there are different programs that may help you in getting a visa. They can provide certain documents.

When I was younger I loved to travel, but since 911 the reality of flying and all the palaver that surrounds it these days has made flying into a bit of a nightmare. Like Anja @Rollo1 I would happily visit if they brought the places to me lol...

That might be a bit difficult - imagine bringing you the BUSH and some elephants? Do you have room for them all?

How was Cape Town? - do you want better smoking restrictions or would you like to smoke more?

@Inlemay - Hey Lany! It's still "How is Cape Town" :) I don't mind not smoking on the plane, but there should be smoking booths at all the airports :)

@toflanigan are you still there? whats up? My friend that just flew 13 hours to Australia - then a train to Orange - said that 16 hours without a smoke nearly killed her. No smoking booths anywhere in train stations nor airports and BIG No smoking all over Australia

My wife and I are travelers but only Asia for now. The reason is the airline that sells discounted plane tickets have routes only in Asia. Last January we were in Beijing to taste the snow in the Great Wall. In April we were in Kuala Lumpur for a selfie with Petronas Tower. Next week, Sept 25, we will be in Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam. And there are trips to Hongkong and Singapore in the following months. But a trip to Europe is our dream.

That is clever - we also choose to travel in the discounted or off seasons, that makes it cheaper and we can do it more often.

I can't fly because of an ear problem (I have a eustacian tube issue that makes me dizzy when I change elevations), but I love to travel by car. I would love to win one of those gazillion-dollar lotteries and take off on a trip across North America in an RV.

That is a problem - the ears and teeth - it makes for difficult flying

The Game Reserves in Africa are remarkable and once y ou have so to say walked with lions, you keep coming back - Africa is a cheap destination, but everyone is afraid to visit.

If I had the money, I would travel the world. However, there are some places where I would prefer to visit first. For example, I would rather visit Hong Kong than Australia. So depending on how much money I actually had, I'd visit my most favorable places first.

I would go to Denmark and Sweden and maybe travel by train across Russia - I believe China is beautiful as well and Vietnam is very scenic. I dont like shops, nor malls, nor bright lights - I like history when I travel
