Which places are in your must do list?
For me it would be Australia. With me being a teacher and OH on a rota- it's almost impossible to get a time long enough to go. I have visiTed several far flung destinations for a week or less but Australia really needs a good amount of time.
China- would love to take a tour.
Cuba- just haven't managed a visit yet.
India- huge destination with so many choices!
Other than that, Barbados, that can be arranged just not keen on long haul for same reason as above really. Would like to do America too but not the theme parks perhaps off the beaten tracks a little, this however would not be something I would like to do alone though.
I would like to visit Namibia, have tried to persuade OH to visit the country for our Golden Wedding celebration next year without any luck.
I agree it's a long way to fly in cramped economy seats, luckily we had flown business which as you know from experience makes a big difference to the journey.
I ticked off Australia and New Zealand the other year when we had a month touring.
Loved it. Great adventure and I loved the thousands of miles of driving I did
The Whitsunday Islands are the most beautiful place on earth.
Next on the bucket list is Vietnam/Cambodia which we are currently in the planning stage of but nothing is decided..it is looking favourite though.
We usually have a few ideas of where we would like to go, put them all in a hat and draw one out..that was how we ended up in Oz/NZ.
We are off back to Bali later this year as we only had 3 days there on the way home from NZ and decided we wanted more.
If I had bottomless pockets and didn't work, I would travel the world.
Vietnam and Cambodia- we twinned with Thailand so only stayed at one place. For Cambodia we stayed in Siem Reap. Obviously it is the place to be for Angkor Wat- which is impossible to describe and do it justice. But loved the night life there- great little places to eat in. Vietnam- have stayed in Saigon and Hanoi. Saigon has more to do around it and I loved it- including thinking we were lost in the middle of a jungle!. Hanoi- the old town is a place you can happily spend days in- wondering around the maze of little streets. My tip- don't go for the big hotels- they are not in best positions for exploring. Stay in the old town.
Cambodia and Vietnam is looking favourite and I have some ideas of where we want to go and what we want to do on a 3 week trip. Cambodia - I want to take in Phnom Pen as well as Siem Rip and in Vietnam, I want Saigon and Hanoi as well as a little tour round Halong Bay.
They can tailor make it to whatever we want it to be which suits me fine so it feels less like a package holiday!
I have a big list of places I'd love to go for weekend breaks but not many for a relaxing holiday. Other than 10 days in Croatia one year we've spent several summers back at the same hotel in Gozo. Im sure it's a sign of getting old that we like familiarity now. Decided to try somewhere new this year & went to Corsica which we absolutely loved. Definitely will be returning there. I'd also love to try Sicily & Sardinia & explore more of Germany & Northern Spain (well I think it's north) - Catalonia
Oh Sorrento/Amalfi we also ticked off this year. Arrived on an Italian bank holiday weekend. Utter bonkers for 3 out of 5 of our days. Must have been the only fools to hire a car. It was quite spectacular though, even with the Italians.
I will check out the gallery & maybe upload some photos

Amalfi looks stunning 👍
We will get to Boston one day but it will take a fair bit of planning. Might be easier to get some brochures, look at the places the tour companies visit/stay & work our own plan from there.
Are you just doing Boston Fi or will you move on elsewhere ?
