    1. Iceland - English is easy there. Scenery is breathtaking and sometimes outer worldly. Con - very expensive

    2. New Zealand - I could expatriate here. Most overall beautiful country I have visited. My favorite places there so far are Wellington and Queenstown. Kiwis are the best!

    3. Australia- always had a thing for OZ. Love the animals there, well the ones that won't kill you. Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane are all awesome cities in their own right. Highlight of one trip was climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge and I'm pretty much afraid of heights.

    Rochdale college

    Opened in 1968, Rochdale College was an experiment in student-run alternative education and co-operative living in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It provided space for 840 residents in a co-operative living space. It was also a free university where students and teachers would live together and share knowledge. The project ultimately failed when it could not cover its financing and neighbours complained that it had become a haven for drugs and crime. It was closed in 1975.

    -Hiroshima, Japan. Very beautiful city, recovered well after the atomic bomb was dropped. One structure from the attack remains standing today, and it's The Atomic Dome.

    Sendai, Japan. Another beautiful city, but the most intriguing thing I ever saw was this enormous statue "Daikannon."
    It stands 100 meters tall, but I swear it seems taller than that. I was intimidated at the sight of this statue, even from a great distance. Look at these pictures and see for yourself.

  12. Jamaica, cuba, and Mexico. Also been to dominican republic, and the US.

    Enjoyed Jamaica the most, good food, good people. Quite sketchy in some arias, but same can said for a lot of places. Intend to go back.

    I've driven down to the US a couple times, Washington, origan, Montana, northern cali. Flew in to Vegas once, blew a whole $20 at a casino..big spender here lol.

    I've just had a 6 weeks straight of -20 to -30 degree weather......-40 to -50 with windchills.
    Ive developed some serious wander lust for more tropical locations . Shall see where the cheapest air fairs take this time.

    Langtry Texas. Home of the Hangin Judge, Judge Roy Bean. Excellent museum and displays. Not a lot of traffic as it resides just west of the Pecos River along the Rio Grande.

    The Black Hills, South Dakota. A must visit to the area during the motorcycle rally centered in Sturgis. Custer State Park, Rushmore, Devils Tower, Wind Cave NP, Jewel Cave. and the Crazy Horse Memorial. Just to the east are The Badlands NP.

    Palomar Mountain Ca. Giant telescope / observatory with many displays on how it was built and it's operation. Palomar State Park where you can get lost for days.

    St Helen's Volcano, Washington. 5 years after the eruption thousands of trees were left laid down like toothpicks as far as the eye could see. Near the base the landscape was as desolate as the moon.

    Butchart Gardens, Vancouver Island BC Canada - Never have I seen such beautiful flower gardens in all of this world.

    Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico

    Sitting there in the amphitheater in the evening watching hundreds of thousands of bats take flight out of the cave entrance is a sight to behold

    Coolest place I've been to has to be Siberia - was -35 oC during the day and -47 oC at night. Add to that the 'wind chill' and we were walking around in equivalent temperatures of -60 oC +
