Aplogises If a thread like this has been made, I couldn't find one.

So many places that I've been exceptionally lucky to visit. I've visited all 7 continents on my travels & seen some spectacular places on my travels. When I think back my parents never left the UK so I know how lucky I've been. I've got to go out but will post more later.

I've been to Australia twice for 4 weeks and 5 weeks, to Perth and Brisbane and thought both places were fantastic. So much so, we paid for a residency visa to go live there, got jobs, was ready to move, but my wife got cold feet, so we didn't go. One of the biggest regrets of my life TBH, Australia is just so fantastic, the housing, the beaches, the outdoor lifestyle because of the incredible weather. Ah well, I have a great life here in the UK, I'm part time, I have a week off work every month and only work four days per week and can retire at 60 on a good pension, so it's not all bad. Going to Mexico next month to the fourth best rated hotel in Cancun the Sun Palace and I can't wait, it looks fantastic and you can't beat some winter sun.

I've driven across America twice and spent about a two years of my life in southern Africa (Zimbabwe and RSA) over the last two decades since my sister married a Zimbo farmer.
Apart from that, I've also spent a fair amount of time in France (had a French gf for ten years), been to Spain four or five times, Germany three times, Italy twice, Scotland and Ireland a couple of times, Wales more times than I'd like and Greece once.

For the future, I'm going to Portugal for a few days in a fortnight - with Bugsy and Tommy Lamph from the leedsunitedfanclub site. We're hoping to see Sporting v Benfica as we'll be in Lisbon for that weekend - a massive derby !! - but may well end up seeing either Vitoria Setubal or Estoril if we can't get tickets for what should be a sell-out.

I went to Berlin with them both a year or so ago as well as regularly meeting up either down south or for Leeds matches, and funnily enough we had a conversation about a year ago about where we'd like to go if we could choose anywhere. Tommy Lamph's real name is Terry and he travels four or five times a year, mostly to bonkers non-mainstream places like Belize, Israel, Peru and - jealous! - Cuba.
To a man, we all said "Japan!" so that's our next trip. We're gonna discuss it on this break and see how we feel about it - how long we'll go for, when, etc - but I can't wait to go there. I love technology, gaming and anime plus really like how they're nuts for rock-n-roll and karaoke in general and I think some of the women are the most beautiful on the planet :D

I think I'll stop there ! :o

I've been to Devon and Cornwall a few times to nick some daffodils, it was an absolute riot.

You couldn't pay me to set foot in Turkey.
I just couldn't do it ... scum. What a mediaeval country that place is ... let alone the obvious history, their treatment of women is appalling.
