Say you win the opportunity to see 3 places in the world, what would they be?

as for me, I long thought about it. I would say,

Canada,
New Zealand
and Japan..

But here I m a little bit undecided because I really want to see Iceland as well..But i guess that if i was given a free ride I would pick the most expensive of the two..Island, I would go another time..No problem

More than three, but... May 27, 2007

...here are three:

Scotland (some of my ancestors are from there)
China (I like Chinese culture)
Ghana (actually, anywhere in Africa would do, but I used to study a kind of drumming that comes from Ghana)

TOPIC STARTER
... May 27, 2007

Could not find a title to this one:

Hey, Tati thanks! I m happy that my posts have such a good response! I ejoy finding new nice topics, just to chill from a hard day (spent with the almost mother in law....insisting to make your parner, his baby, cut his hair, already short enough, and then filling you up with food, to then say you should lose some weight...eh...).

As for the group buy to the Moon, we might ask

Francesca--don't let the "suocera" get to you! Take it from someone who's been there.

As for my three choices:

China
Brazil
Fiji

(And if the group buy to the moon goes through, I'll chip in!)

And mine: May 27, 2007

1. Andalusia (Cordoba, Sevilla, Granada)
2. Tibet
3. Iran (maybe sometime in the future, when a chador is not a requirement)

I should also mention: in my own country (Egypt) the Siwa Oasis, plus Morocco, China, former Soviet Central Asian republics, Turkey, Finland... and so much more.

subthread, if I may... May 27, 2007

Although I prefer not to visit cities more than once, there are a couple of places I would like to revist.

Bath
Prague (so far and by far, the most beautiful city I have visited )
Cartagena (Colombia)


@ Gianfranco: I did snorkelling and scuba in Cartagena. You should go!
