In my career I've been lucky enough to see 48 of the 50 states - North Dakota and Alaska being the exceptions.
I love Hawaii, Maui in particular and Bermuda is high on the list.
My backyard is also a favorite.
It was a long time ago when I lived in England but used to go to Portugal (the Algarve) and the Greek Islands.
How about you?

    HaHa. At 65 I'd better speed up the trip. Love NO and KW (in small doses).
    Did SD on my Harley en route to Sturgis - I guess ND is similar but cooler!

    Did San Jose Cabo and the French Quarter in NOLA this year.  Both were great.  Maui is coming up, but we also do Palm Springs every year.  If I had to pick one spot, it'd be hard to choose between Fiji and Antigua.  But mostly, I hang in the back yard with the fish, dogs, and my smoker.

    Have a cottage in the Ottawa Valley, just finished 2 years of reno and it is my sanity.  No TV, no phone and a crank radio, my cell phone doesn't work there.  The sunsets are spectacular, the mornings are soo calm.
