GRcade Travel Topic

Whilst watching Michael Palin's Pole to Pole yesterday I thought of a topic to discuss travel, what with the recent trips planned on grcade. Another reason for creating this topic is to post places you want to visit in your life.

Guess I'll post my list first:

North/South Pole

Japan
All Prefectures
Been to Tokyo/Kyoto

China
Bejing
Shanghai

Hong Kong

Singapore

South Korea
Icheon
Seoul
South/North Korea Boarder

Taiwan

Denmark
Copenhagen

Norway
Oslo

Austria

Germany
Berlin

Italy
Rome

Russia
Moscow

Sweden

The Netherlands

Canada

Mexico

USA

Australia

Fiji

New Zealand

Tahiti

One of the things that makes me laugh, is when people say to me "How come you go to places live Japan etc". My reply is always "Because you only live once, enjoy it! Put some money aside every month and visit places you want to go!"

So fellow grcade members, what places do you want to visit/have visited

Top of everest would be nice & the bottom of the marianas trench.

Then Tokyo maybe.


Not bothered by many other places.

Nah srsly I'd like to do some kind of tour of the Pacific Islands. Starting from Sumatra, then Borneo, New Guinea, New Caledonia, Fiji, and then all the little islands who's names escape me, Micronesia, up to Hawaii, then across to Easter Island and finally the Galapagos.
Not a very realistic plan, but still more likely to happen than getting to Johansson's underpants...

I've only been to a few places out of the UK, France, Spain, Cyprus, Jersey and of course, Japan.

Planning San Francisco and Hong Kong for next year, was going to go back to Japan but don't think that's such a good idea. If I do go ahead with San Francisco it's going to be another crazy adventure, basically, I know someone out there who really likes me and wants me to visit her, undecided on going at the moment.

I have enough money for it and I was interested you goon, but now I'll have to wait a bit longer to see if I can actually use this money for that or if I'll have to use it for something else.
