Morning family, its early here so im guessing for most of you it is still friday. im going away for the weekend and just wanted to get this in before i left.
If money and AP were not an issue, where in the world would you travel/holiday?
I would love to spend some time living in Scotland, but check out the whole UK as well. Maybe some time in the Swiss Alps- Then in the US, id like to visit Seattle (the birthplace of grunge) and Boston. If money was no issue i would spend a year living in a loft apartment in manhatten and support myself by writing.
But I'd still call Australia home. actually, there is heaps of Australia id like to explore.
How bout you?

If money were not object nor AP, oh man I would love to see first Australia and then Alaska and then Hawaii (warm, cold, warm).  I'd also like to spend some time in Ireland.  But, first would be Australia (Australia Zoo would be first as I was, and still am, a HUGE Steve Irwin fan).  But, Australia in general has always been my biggest dream.  Oh to dream.  What a nice thread.  Just to be able to stop ourselves for a few minutes and dream of far off places to go.  Thanks Maz for taking me away from everyday life for a few minutes.  I hope you have/had a great weekend.

oh, i would love to go all over europe. england, ireland, scotland, france, italy, belgium-the works! i would stay in glorious old castles in the uk and cute country cottages in france and old villas in italy and eat my weight in chocolates in belgium! i think that would be heavenly!

and i almost forgot-india! i have a friend who took a long trip through india and his stories and photos are fantastic. i've wanted to go myself ever since.
love and hugs

this being human is a guest house.
every morning a new arrival-a joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awarenewss comes as an unexpected visitor.
welcome and entertain them all!
even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture,still, treat each guest honorably
he may be clearing you out for some new delight.

Seems like Alaska is a popular spot for us AP sufferers! :-)

If money and AP were not in the way, I would take my girlfriend all the places she still wants to visit. :-) She's a historian and would love to see Spain and Scotland. I would also take her to Colorado and Florida as there are two of the 'most haunted locations in North America' in those states. She's very into ghost stories.

I personally would like to be able to visit Massachusetts again and see the beaches I visited with my family when I was younger, as well as going to Alaska and visiting a place called Twin Lakes. There was a man by the name of Richard Proenneke who built his own cabin on the upper end of Twin Lakes back in the 60s and lived in retirement there largely by himself for 30 years. He's been an inspiration to me and has partly fueled my desire to be completely independent, even from AP!

If money were not a problem ( because I would not let my anxiety hold me back) I would like to travel to places I have never been, Australia, UK, Alaska.....................

But I would always make my home in the USA.

I'm a huge disney fanatic, and would love to see Disney world someday. Expense and anxiety stops me (fear of flying). So I stick with Disneyland for now. ;)

I can highly recommend Scotland being Scottish myself. The highlands of Scotland are amazing and rival any mountain range in the world and we have much nicer scenery than England.

Australia and Alaska for me too. I love seeing landscape and animals that aren't common here in the eastern US.
