    You are living a good life Jeff. As I get older my biggest passion becomes traveling to new countries and taste their food and drinks.

    Travel has always been number 2 on my list of favorite activities (I have to say that watching sports is number 1). COVID caused me to miss out on trips to Bilbao (Spain), New Mexico, Hawaii, and Trieste (Italy) over the past couple of years, which definitely pissed me off.

    Definitely enjoy experiencing food and drink in new places, but I also enjoy seeing things I've never seen before. The three biggest holes in my list are Australia/New Zealand, Asia (my layover time in China doesn't really count, and no time in India or southeast Asia), and Israel/Egypt. Unfortunately political upheaval has complicated that, along with distance to Australasia.

    Yep. I still do South America and Australia. And maybe one of Kenya/South Africa to taste real Africa. To me Egypt doesn't count. Want to see Melbourne and Sydney before I die.

    Lastly, want to do the Antarctica cruise from south of Argentina. :)

    Impressive lists here, wish I would have visited more countries. Hopefully in the near future I'm able to start adding to my list.. I'm changing my profession at the moment, got fed up with my earlier job and started studying to be an airline pilot, hopefully it pays off in the future and those countries starts to pile up :D

    Here's my list:
    Sweden
    Portugal
    Spain
    Croatia
    Czech Republic
    Hungary
    Cyprus
    Egypt
    Bulgaria
    England
    USA
    Favorite places, New York absolute number one, Lisbon in Portugal, Giza pyramids. They let us in the pyramid, all the way to the tomb chamber, that was awesome.

    Damn. There’s some pretty impressive lists here.


    I have to say, at my age I find I don’t really have a huge appetite for “exotic” destinations anymore. Unless I have a solid month to learn about a place or know a local who can hook me up, I’m just not that up for investing the time and resources anymore. I’d love to see Paris and a zillion other places, but not for a week.

    At this point I’d rather spend a week with my grandkids. And I’m fine with that. Grateful, in fact.

    I love how Brits enjoy being in Europe. Within 2 hour flying distance they have 25 countries they can get to. Us poor Americans have to fly long times to see a country outside North America. :)

    Satan,

    What part of Australia are you? I am hoping to visit Australia one of these days thanks to United Airlines having direct flights to Australia now.

    I will try to invite @Jesus to travel with me.
