I'd still really like to visit North Korea (before North Korea visits me)
Boston is a fantastic city. Check out the Sam Adams brewery (free). They also do a city pass which includes the main attractions. The Natural History museum at Harvard is excellent (a proper, old fashioned museum, not an animatronic or push button in sight). Public transport is also very good (like most American cities) but it is also an easy city to walk. Take the freedom trail.
Would love to do Iceland, Norway, Sweeden..Sounds rather expensive though..
We did Niagara 10 years ago. It was late March and the American falls were still frozen. The icebergs in the river meant the boats were not running, in fact the place was deserted.
We did Amiens a few years back, spectacular. Metz is also pretty amazing.
Have you considered a cruise? You get a taster of all the places plus first class accommodation and food.
Yes. Partner not too keen on a cruise - so.am trying to persuade. I think.its the cheapest option.
Not really a holiday, but we'll be going to France for the Women's World Cup as the Scotland team qualified. Booked accommodation already.
I would very much like to go to Spain at some other point in 2019 as I've been learning the language for about a year now and have zero Spanish speakers to practice on/with in my small town. The motivation flags eventually if there seems no point in learning.
I still consider the Scotland V Peru game at the 1974 World Cup one of the finest games of football I have ever giggled through.
What were you smoking?
I don't do holidays, but I do travel a fair bit in the line of work.
Looking forward (so far) to Berlin three times, Brussels, Rhine Valley during the next six months. Possibly Moscow and St Petersburg in October.
Been watching Mrs Brown?
2 trips to Majorca planned.
Hoping to do Antigua next December, but might hold back until Jan 2020to see if prices better.
Want to discover more of UK....particularly East Anglia.
Never seen it.
If you go to Boston go on a whale watching trip. Book for an afternoon as the morning boats will have identified the best areas to look that day. Even hormonal teenage daughter was blown away by the sight of humpback whales.
Feb and march in the philippines. july and august in normandy, plus a couple of stray weeks. A week seeing friends in New York and another ditto in catalonia.
Yes, we're retired. The philippines actually saves us money, as do the trips to france. In catalonia wa stay with our friend, so only new york costs us.
And I consider us very lucky.
Last year we travelled the furthest we've ever been and visited family in Kuala Lumpur - we stayed in Singapore, Taman Negara rainforest and then a week in a hut on a tropical beach! A very different holiday for us and it was great.
This summer we will go (with friends) to France for two weeks although in Feb I'm off to Jerusalem with a group of women from my church which I'm really looking forward to.
@install, we've had some great holidays in Norway and Denmark, both in the winter and summer. However, I'm not too keen on the cuisine and it is very expensive but in my opinion, that part of the world is truly captivating.
I want to go down the Yangtse - but it might have to wait until we retire.
