If You Could Go Anywhere in the World...

...where would you go?
I asked myself that question four years ago and the answer was India. I had always wanted to see the Taj Mahal and I did! It was a great trip, though not without one gigantic hiccup. I signed up for a tour and was assured that there were three other travelers who would be with me. When I arrived in Delhi, after flying endless hours, I found out I was traveling alone. I was distraught for the first day and then realized I had to deal with it. It was a little lonely, but I fell into the rhythm, was blessed with a gracious and considerate driver and enjoyed the sights immensely.
I love to travel and love to plan trips almost as much as I love to go on them. I've been a "have passport, will travel" kind of girl and have some frequent flyer miles burning a hole in my desk. I've got some ideas, but not ready to make a decision. I'm thinking somewhere in Asia, but know my dear blog friends will have great ideas.
If you could go anywhere in the world -- not thinking about cost or difficulty of getting there -- where would you like to go? Would you return to favorite places or see a long desired place?
Looking forward to your ideas!

I would go to tour Thailand. Bangkok, Chaing Mai, Phuket, all of it. That's where I would go. Alexa just toured Japan and LOVED it.

My DH spent a very, very long time in India 6 weeks there & then 6 weeks home etc, picturesque, poverty is depressing ... IF I were travel outside the USA again, Holland continues to beckon. It is one beautiful, warm, lovely country that is so full of history, architecture & art ... the people are fantastic. BUT we travelled in Europe so much we are focusing on our USA regions now.

Well if I could go anywhere...after all your postcards from New York, I think that is on the list--but that won't use your miles up.

Greece, Israel, Ireland, UK, Italy...those are all on my "someday" list.

You sure were brave to travel alone in India like that! I'm glad you had a nice driver, I'm sure that helped immensely!

I don't know where I'd go traveling now. Perhaps down to Uruguay.

I want to live in Greece for one summer. On the ocean in a villa. With full breeze.
