One of my passions in life is travelling, have visited loads of places around the world and have done 6 continents, one to go and will fulfill that ambition next February. Share your experiences or tell us where is your dream location.

Anything has to be better than stressing over the Take Over

I don't have grand plans, I like the simple life and nothing would be better for me than a house or apartment that over looks the beach at Filey:



There are some beautiful places in this world and gods own county is definitely one of them

I love travelling too NW. Been to 5 continents so far. Just Africa and Antarctica to go. Spent 3 months travelling around N. America when I was 23. Daunting going on my own but one of the best things I ever did. Most expensive trip was to Jamaica where I met my wife and am still paying for it now.    We bought some land out there and have plans to build a house. Last holiday was to Bolivia which was very nice.

I've not thought about the continents I've visited before, but I've been to Europe obviously, S America (Bolivia, Peru and Chile - for a day ) and North America a few times. Suppose my 'biggest' trip was to Bolivia which I really enjoyed, and Macchu Piccu and a few other place names in Peru which I've forgotten.

Would fancy Argentina, Cuba and Canada if I could, plus India, but my girlfriend needs comfort and preferably good warm weather. to be fair, my days of roughing it, even camping at festivals, are long gone and I'm only 47

Have done Africa a few times Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland, Gambia,Kenya, Ethiopia and Zululand. Antarctica is my next big trip, my retirement present to myself, taking early retirement by the way   

Favourite places are Nepal, Tobago and Australia, are looking at our money to see if we can afford a big trip down there.

Cuba is fantastic, not the resorts like Cayo Coco but Havana, once Castro dies not sure what will happen but my favourite city, so vibrant. Done Argentina, Buenos Aries (sp) is a decent city, I remember have the best steaks on the planet there.

India is fine, not exactly roughing it but not 1st class accommodation, but the food is to die for. Try and do Kerala in the south as they love the English there and the scenery is spectacular.

Its a cruise starting off in Buenos Aries (sp) and down to the tip of South America and stopping at Ushuaia, then down to The Falklands, a day on Port Stanley. The next 10 days are touring around Antarctica finishing off in Montevideo in Uruguay. Not a cheap holiday but I deserve it

On our local news recently, it was saying that on it's tourist info' website, in an effort to attract more visitors, Skegvegas had been posting pictures of it's rival resorts, which were showing the shall we say, less favourable sides and sights of said rivals!
Rather than expounding it's own virtues!

Abroad I've been to parts of the stop over counties of Asia from Australia (Malaysia, Thailand, etc), also been to Florida, and in Europe I've been to Rome down to Sicily.

In Australia, I was rightfully shown the door at age 17 and I've lived in Melbourne, Sydney, Port Macquarie, the Gold Coast (I still own a house there near the beach), Toowoomba, St Lawrence, Middlemount, Dysart, Emerald, Mackay and now Townsville. In terms of travel, that's about 3,500kms (2200 miles) via the coastal route. That's almost the same distance from Leeds to Luhans'ka (the back of the Ukraine).

Didn't live in Tasmania but stayed a month for our honeymoon. The place is amazing. Also, continue to camp in the Daintree Forest north of Townsville as well as camping sites along the Whitsunday and have holidayed at most of the Whitsunday resorts (kid friendly ones only) east of Townsville. Next big trip is Crocodile Resort in the Middle of Australia for the wife's 40th

Am planning to visit Cork City in September, my first visit. My two daughters are going with me and we intend to do a bit of genealogy research. Not that we will be able to do much as it is only for a long week-end.

Regards

Just 38 days left to my big trip. Only potential problem is the Argentine government are stopping cruise ships disembarking on The Falklands, this will be a real shame if this part of the holiday is lost.
