    Let's start a thread talking about places on our bucket list that we want to move to or just would like to visit. Say where you are from and where you would like to visit or your dream location would be.

    For me, I am from California. I've thought about doing a road trip through the United States, visiting certain states like Texas, Washington D.C., Kentucky, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin, Montana, Tennessee, etc.

    Dunno where else for right now. How about you?

    Planning to visit the Canaries next year. This will be the first time ill travel alone so it kinda makes me nervous haha. Going to check Fuerteventura first, I heard offers its a lovely warm sanctuary away from the harsh winters of Europe then last of my list is Playa de Gran Tarajal in the southeast.

    I was about to create a thread about travels but I found this one, so its not necessary.

    Places that I would like to go:

    - Easter island (Chile);
    - Galapagos (Equador);
    - Alaska (USA)
    - Glacial Perito Moreno (Argentina)
    - Barcelona (Spain)
    - Beaches of Greece, Italy and Croatia.
    - Southeast Asia (Vietnan, Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, Indonesia)

    Places that I already visited and recommend:

    - Cusco/Aguas Calientes (Peru) - Impressives archeological sites as Machu Picchu, Coricancha, Sacsayhuaman, Tambomachay, etc...

    - Mendoza (Argentina) - Land of wine, good place to visit hundred of wineries. Also this city is just aside the Cordilheira dos Andes, the most impressive chains of mountains of all Americas. The hightest peak in the Americas is called Aconcagua. You can visit also.

    - Iguazu falls (Argentina/Brazil) - The impressives waterfalls shared by Argentina and Brazil. Such a beautiful place to visit.

    - Archeological sites of Mexico - The most impressive country that I visited for the ones who search for history and archeological sites. My favorites: Teotihuacan (beautiful pyramids built 100 AC.). Palenque (impressive maya`s constructions). Calakmul (7 bigs buildings made by the Mayans in the deep jungle. Rival mayan city at the time was Tikal/Yavin IV). Tulum (most impressive landscape in mexico: Mayan ruins and the beautiful sea). Chichen Itza (the most famous mayan site, impressive btw).

    - Beaches of Mexico - Cozumel (impressive site to scuba diving or snorkeling). Akumal (beautiful beach where you can swin with the sea turtles, they are thousand of them). Tulum (as I said before, impressive landscape). In the Maya Riviera don't forget to visit the Cenotes, I recommend Cenote Azul, the most beautiful blue water I ever saw).

    - National Parks of USA - Yellowstone (the oldest and the most impressive in my opinion, wildlife in every corner. We saw bears, wolves, deers, mooses...). Arches of Moab (this is pod racing!). Gran Canyon (impressive, most impressive). Bryce Canyon (love this park, especially when its snowing). Antelope Canyon (the water sculping the stones, spectacular). Monumment Valley (jaw droping).

    - Archeological sites of Egypt - Other country with a incredible history. Favorite sites: Abu Simbel (Two big temples constructed by Ramses II). Hatshepsut temple (Luxor). Luxor temple (Luxor). Karnak Temple (Luxor). Isis Temple in a island (Luxor). Valley of the Kings, Tut`s tomb and Ramses VI tomb(Luxor). Colosses of Menom (Luxor). Temple of Medinet Habu (Luxor). As you can see the best place for monuments and history are located in Luxor.
    Plateau of Giza (The pyramids and the sphinx). Next to Giza you can also visit others pyramids like the famous Saqqara, red and bent pyramid.

    - Dahab (Egypt) - Excelent beach to stay, good restaurants, Excelente sea to scuba diving or snorkeling.
    - The White Desert (Egypt) - It looks like another planet. everything is white. We spent the night there.

    As you can see most of the place that I choosed were natural landscapes, beaches and archeological sites. I left a lot of great big city with a lot of cool things to do out of my list. Some cities that I loved: Buenos Aires, City of Mexico, NYC, Seattle, San Francisco, Cairo, Paris, etc...

    Wich places you already visited that you enjoyed most and recommend?

    Traveling is my passion, so I like to go to overseas. Few months ago I went to Prague where I visited massage parlor. I think massage is a perfect way to fight with stress and fatigue. I think massage parlors in Prague better than in Bali, where I was last week.
