Long time removed from the US for personal and career reasons but I love to travel. So with that said what are some of your favorite vacations spots and where have you been?

I personally have travelled to 5 continents (North America, South America, Europe, Asia, & Africa). I personally have made it a goal to visit the following destinations in the next 2-3 years.

1. South Africa - I want to travel into the bush and go on a genuine safari before too long. SA is the best country for me with 2 huge game reserves.
2. Australia - Apart from Antartica which I doubt I will visit it is the only continent I have not hit yet.

All in all I have been to 15-20 countries on those 5 continents I mentioned.

I am personally doing the Caribbean because my wife loves it and I kinda do too.

My wife and I visited Mexico and Ireland (and have traveled quite a bit in Canada, but that's not really another country unless you get into the French Canadian areas). I really like Ireland and had a blast when we were there staying in peoples' homes as part of a B&B voucher system we found. I think I would really like to take a Scottish highland tour one of these years.

Most of our traveling ranges from Tennessee to Maine in the states. We really love the Smokey Mountains in TN, The White Mountains in NH, and the Adirondacks in NY. Scenery, hiking and good food are prerequisites for me for a good vacation.

Europe is incredible to visit because of the sheer amount of culture and diversity you have. For example where I live in southern Spain it is a 4.5 hours drive to Portugal, 1.5 hours to Gibratar, or 2 hours to get to Algeciras which then takes you on an hour ferry to Morroco. The food in Europe is quite diverse as well. So much to do and see.

When I visit the US in Nov-Dec I am going to try and travel back to Niagara Falls to take my elderly mom. She has been under the weather lately and loved NF tbe last time I took her 12 years ago. I might drive around that region for an exgra day or 2 if anyone is from there and has any tips?

I'm from the UK & have lived in or visited many parts of Europe & Australia as well as Hong Kong but my favourite destination is the US.

I have been around 11-12 times mostly to the usual holiday places like Orlando & California but Vegas is my all time favourite, i have been 8 times so far....

I really want to visit NY/Boston & Chicago in the near future. Hopefully i will get there in the next couple of years.

It is a brutal flight for sure. Both times i went i went in Economy (coach) & it is nasty! The first time i went i went for four weeks (Sydney, Melbourne & Adelaide) & the second time for three weeks (Adelaide & Brisbane). Two weeks is an absolute minimum but, like you, i would have to somehow try & find the funds to fly business if i were to ever do it again.

Good luck!

Well, I was able to have a very successful career and have retired young (54) and have been to Germany and the Caribbean already this year. Actually headed back to the Carribean on the 29th for 10 nights and then back to the US on 7 Nov to see Mum. That yearly trip is mandatory.
