    Countries you've always wanted to visit...but never have

    I've always wanted to go to Iceland for some reason - kind of a boyish fantasy about the place since I was, well a boy.

    Never managed it .....flew over the place once on the way to the U.S and it was a great sight from the window - I could even see the runway of Reykyavik. Anyone been?

    I even got as far as booking a ticket on-line at one point but there was a problem with the website and in the end I went elsewhere.


    Anyway, what are your elusive destinations?

    Yeah, Iceland too.

    Prague, China, Japan & Argentina come to mind.

    I spent 3 months Tefling in Buenos Aires, Argentina 18 months ago.

    Not a bad place - stunning women , cheap steaks and nice old colonial Spanish buildings.

    I also went to the north - the border area with Brazil to see the 'Iguazu Falls' - kind of like the Niagara Falls in the jungle - it was awesome!

    (I even have a photo on-line lurking around somewhere)


    Not been to the other countries you mention although I reckon Czech Republic is on the cards at some point.

    The rugby team is off to Buenos Aries in September, but I won't be going.

    I think it's between 52,000 & 58,000 depending upon numbers. I think that's cheap as one of our members is the local boss of Swissair.

    ^ yes, I guess it's each to his own when it comes to the beauty of women.

    Hot Bolivian women are fairly rare though!

    The Phillipines. Dunno why really. Just somewhere that I have always wanted to go. But, unfortunately, whenever I am looking at the price of tickets there is a coup, or something close to somewhere I want to visit blows up.

    I heard that was Cartagena in Colombia, but I'll never go there.

    I have always wanted to visit Arkansas.

    Seriously, I would like to visit England. I was there once but a Heathrow Airport layover doesn't really count.

    That's another place I've been to.

    Went there in the 80's for 6 months - a pretty wacky place back then.

    there even was a coup when I was there and I just had to stay indoors for a couple of days - all I saw of it was a helicopter in the distance.
    I think it was one of the bloodless ones though.

    I've heard that about the women as well - have you seen the film 'Maria full of grace' - she's a Colombian beauty!

    There are many places I've been before, but would like to revisit, especially with the wife - Egypt comes to mind - what an incredible history. Places I haven't seen that I would like to - Australia. (I know that doesn't set well with many on the Forum, but it's the truth.) I also would like to see Alaska and Maine in the USA, since they're the only two States of the fifty I've not spent any time in.

    The Marshall Islands.

    I applied for a job there a few months ago but I don't think I will get it.

    I thought Siam Reap was really boring. But it is good for those of you that enjoy walking round temples in the boiling heat for hours on end.

    I think Angkor Wat is completley overated in my opinion.
