Why I’d like to go?

To go scuba-diving off the Great Barrier Reef by day then ditch the wet suit for a dinner at Marque in Surry Hills, followed by a show of Bell Shakespeare or possibly the Australian Chamber Orchestra at the Sydney Opera house by night.

Why I’d like to go?

Swim in the real “Blue Lagoon” then have a glass of scotch from the Ice bar, which is the equivalent of drinking from a giant functional ice luge, and go horseback riding around an active volcano. 🙂

  1. All good choices. But those countries cover big areas and there is a lot to do in each. You might have to narrower the list (or make numerous trips back to each) to cover them all. Check out my blog for some ideas. I put a travel photo of the day. I have been to all but Egypt and Iceland.

  2. Hey Dan, Thanks for the comment. Yeah I will have to create some individual posts elaborating more on the specific areas. I like your daily pick of Tasmania…good stuff.

    Do you have a favorite from the list?

  3. Lance,
    From your list, Italy would be number 1. Rome is my favorite city. I love the history. My wife loves Vience. We have been all over Italy and Sicily and it is all very nice. Not on your list, but my favorite place in the world is New Zealand. You might need to add #8 to your list.

  4. I’ll be going to Italy in the May, super excited to check out Rome, Florence and Venice.
    I’ve been to Hawaii. It might be the best vacation I’ve had to date! Great beaches, holiday environment, but still very relaxing… and just fun all around
