Ireland and New Zealand are the two that I would most like to go to!
Ireland because one of my troups that worked for me on the F4-E simulator in Germany took took 30 days leave and went to Ireland and toured the Irish country side on a bicycle, and the pictures he brought back with him and his descriptons well I have always wanted to see it. And of course if I could catch a glimspe of a Leprechaun that would really be cool too!! ( )
New Zealand, because we all had to pick a country and do a detailed study on it and then give a speech about that country to the class, as a speech project when I was attending the NCO Academy at Elemendorf AFB in Alaska, back in the eighties, every since then I have wanted to go there, and then they made the Lord of the Rings Movie there and they have the Shire there, and that really makes me want to go and see the place. Who knows may I will spot a Hobbit or two that would really be neat!
Chutzie You would love Alaska, I have spent two tours up there, 2 years in Anchorage in the mid seventies and four years just 30 miles out side of Fairbanks in the mid eights! But go in the summer, and bring plenty of cutter with you! They have more bugs and bees, and Moosesquitoes (huge giant blood sucking mosquitoes) than any where I have ever been including down in the everglades in Florida!! All that tundra and frozen bog is nothing but swamp in the summer!. Think about driving up one way on the Alcan Highway and driving only part way back to Haines Alaska and then take the Alaskan Marine Highway the rest of the way back to Price Rupert, or further down to Vancouver British Columbia, you can reserve a room or cabin and put your car and camper underneath in the parking deck, and they make all the stops along the way, as in an example to Sitka, Katchacan, and Juneau, Wrangle, and all those places, and they usually are there long enough for passengers to take the tour of the towns, a really neat experience, but you have to book passage well in advance, and if you don't want a cabin or state room you can alway rough it and just camp out on deck. allot of people do that to. or at least they use too back in my day!
