Your dream trip

If you could go anywhere for leisure and fun, where would you go?

My dream trip is Ankor Wat & Vietnam to visit Cham ruins. That would be so cool.

For some reason I have this crazy hankering for Argentina. I'd love to cycle through that country, based on nothing else than a gut feeling.

I've been extraordinarily (like really unbelievably) lucky in that I've already been to a lot of the places I would consider dream destinations. A few that I haven't been to yet:

- Russia. I studied the place for 5 years in university but haven't ever been.
- Egypt. An Egyptian friend of mine said I haven't really been to the Middle East until I've been to Egypt. The idea of having a somewhat local guide to show me not just the touristy stuff makes this one particularly intriguing
- India. I'm a sucker for subcontinental literature and food. My dad and sister have been and had fantastic experiences... I'd really like to give it a shot, too.

I realise that India and Russia are fairly large... I'm too tired to go into specifics right now

A friend did that not this past but the previous winter, ran into Mick Jagger in Laos while he was out there. It's cheap once you get there.

For my ownself, I am more flighty, don't have long-standing dream trips, so when I take one it's whatever the last one was that hit me when I have credit card availability. Currently thinking Brazil would be good next time.

My top three choices have always been England, Egypt and Ireland, but for some reason I've been obsessed with Bora Bora lately. The ocean's calling my name again, and it's coming from there...

I was supposed to go to Hungary this summer, but that didn't work out. I still want to and I want to go to Iceland.

I'd tour from New York to Alaska, via Seattle and Chicago. Next, hop a boat to cross the Bering strait, somehow hook up with the Trans-Siberian Railway. (I know, the railway doesn't get even close to there.) Bike to Paris and see cool stuff in Europe, hop the channel to London, then take a ship home.

My dream trip would start out real slow, almost imperceptible there would be this slowing down of the world around me, bright lights would take on marvelous multi colored halos and sounds would cause color fluctuation's. People would have no eyes and rats would be big enough to saddle. There would be flowing fountains of music on every street corner....

Oh, you mean where would I like to go?

I want to be in Monterey, CA this week.

Wow, those must be some good meds they're giving you. Monterey would be kinda boring after that, methinks.

Oh, I have a good one. Hook up a trailer and toss my guitar and a mini-PA in there, and do a travelling musician tour. Ride to a town, work some gigs to get money to move on. Kinda like being homeless but with groupies.

Yeah, it's the 60's inside my head...

+1 Riding in a Grandafondo(sp?), L'Eroica and Paris - Brest - Paris. Aside from that - I'd ride around and see the countryside while the wife is off sightseeing and taking naps. Meet up for dinner and whatnot at the end of most days (when not in PBP).

I want to spend 6 months on a nude beach in St. Maarten with guavaberry piņacoladas, beer, a guitar, a couple harmonicas, and my camera.

EDIT: The camera isn't for the nude beach, it's for the pretty area surrounding it. I may be a lecher, but I'm not one who violates people's dignity or privacy.

From my home near San Francisco to the place I grew up in upstate New York by bicycle, in the fall so when my wife meets me there I can show her the Fall colors.

For a budget fantasy I'd like to do Lands End to John o'Groats around June.
