Hi family- our sickness often limits us in many areas of our lives. I, for one am agoraphobic as a result of panic, so todays question is:
If you had the money and time and were well, where in the world would you most like to travel- and why?
I would love to visit Scotland- there is something about it that calls to me. Same as England, Ireland & Wales, but Scotland the most. The moors, castles, views, the history!
Would love to live and teach in a remote coastal Scottish village. Sadly- the furthest I have travelled in reality is back and forth between Australia & New Zealand.
Now: how bout you?

Gosh Good question Maz,

Well for me its Ireland. As my family history is made up of mainly Irish. I would love to visit my "home" country. My dad side is Indian so I've seen some of our family history already. Mom's side non except for where she was raised.

Australia is the next place. And England.

I've only traveled a few of our own states. Cali, Tenn, Nevada, But those where on business trips. I did live in Ohio for a month and that was all I could handle. To much dang humidity. Colo, Tex, Az, Chicago. And that about covers the basis of my travel.

Texas because I'm only 40 miles away. Oh been to Mexico. But that was many years ago and I will NEVER go back.

Maybe when the kids move out and I make a few on my little business I can see a few more places!

I absolutely LOVE going to Guadalajara, Mexico. My husbands family is down there, and the city is so wonderful, I just love it. In fact, we plan on retiring there. But to travel further from home, I would be much like Maz, as my heritage is Irish, Scottish and Welsh, so I would like to see where my ancestors came from.

Good Morning All,
I love to travel and there is so much in the USA I have not seen that I could stay very busy.  of course Alaska and The Hawaiian Islands are part of the USA so those are absolutes on my list.  devil
I guess I could become a hobo and ride the rails.
Good question Maz.

I took my big trip last year for my honeymoon to Tuscany, I had always wanted to go and just hang out amid the olives so I did it! It was wonderful, I was definitely nervous but the trip was pretty relaxed and peaceful (minus driving in Pisa!).
My next big one if I had the $ and wasn't afraid I'd lose it on the plane would be New Zealand. It just looks so gorgeous there!
I think our next trip will likely be somewhere in the US. My husband and I both want to go to Alaska and Montana, and I'd love to see the grand canyon. His son lives on the west coast so every couple of years we have to head out there.

It's difficult to name just one place. But I would say Italy. My 16 year old keeps talking about it and wants to go badly. Now she's got me wanting to go.

hi, i would love to travel the states, see the cities and all the mountains and sports it has to offer.
Whistler in canada, the rockies(wherever they are, i'm geographically challenged) and Vegas, to see all those lights.
I'ii trade it for all the rain in ireland as that's what you'll get if you come here. It's supposedly summer now, but that just means the rain gets warmer.
take care boo

Newbie Here!  I'm looking forward to meeting some people who have BTDT and offering my experiences with anxiety and PPD.
My name is Holly, and I am a working mom in Oklahoma.
The question:
If you had the money and time and were well, where in the world would you most like to travel- and why?
My answer:
Playa del Carmen, Mexico.  My husband and I just got back 2 weeks ago.  We went (NO KIDS) for our 10th anniversary.  It was heaven.... after it took me 2 days to unwind, unclench my jaw, and stop being an anxious, nervous wreck (I have big time travel anxiety when my children are not with me).
I think I left my brain in PdC. I wish I could go back right now to pick it up.  I know that it would take me at least a week to find it.

I would love to visit...Spain, Italy, Greek Islands, Hawaii....any place with a white sandy beach and a calm sea.
Just to get up early in the morning, walk barefoot on a warm white sandy beach, with my beloved dog by my side.

Mazfire, I am also agoraphobic and it really limits what I and my family do, it is such a shame, I miss out on so much these days, I didn't used to be like this, so I'm hoping I'll get back to "normal" one of these days.

Maz just about anywhere is better than where I live . I would go to California because my sister lives there and I always wanted to know what its like where she lives, I would also visit Hawaii.
This too shall pass...
