    If you could go anywhere on vacation...

    If you could go anywhere on vacation (within reason), where would you go?

    I have been looking at cruises (too much of that Samantha Brown on Travel channel - makes cruises look like a pretty sound choice though) and also thinking about Mexico, as they are used to and tolerant of Americans and the dollar still has some power there. I wouldn't mind just going to one place and getting to know it and experience it, rather that island hopping on a cruise ship either.

    But haven't made up my mind yet. I do know that I want get away from it all for up to 2 weeks with my girl though - and sometime soon.

    Any idears?

    Have you read any news on Mexico lately?..
    Kidnapping violence might turn into the next Somalia any day.

    I used to go to Mexico every other winter but not now.. Same with all the people I know that used to go there, they all come back saying it is geet worse every week.

    If I could go anywhere it would be tropical Pacific islands, Costa Rica or maybe the Philippines.
    I would probably go to the Philippines because I have not been there yet.

    ^I actually know some people who have been effected by the kidnappings. However I was thinking of a cruise that maybe started in Mexico, not staying in Mexico City for any length of time...

    But you mentioned some other places - that is what I am after - other suggestions. Cost of course is a consideration too, so the more accessible to NYC the better, but somewhere warm would be nice too !

    Gonna see Ryan Adams & The Cardinals (if he decides he still wants to play - wah, wah, wah) in Jersey shortly !

    That, IKEA (though we have one in Redhook now) and seeing Yo La Tengo at Maxwell's are the only reason I ever set foot there. Though that pocket in the northwest corner, near the Delaware Water Gap is really pretty, if remote.

    Poor Jersey - if only it didn't have so many Superfund sites, it might not get such a bad rap .

    Number one on my list is North Korea. Second would probably be Belarus. I'd like to go to the US again sometime too, especially the Midwest.

    A trip from Ushuaia in Argentina through the Antarctic islands and down to the peninsula would be a pretty great cruise to go on, although I would be concerned about how responsible the operators are. Would have to check that out first.

    Apart from that, I quite like hot places too. Other places I'd like to go to:

    • Zanzibar and the other spice islands
    • The northwest coast of Australia
    • Kyrgyzstan - great for hiking, mountains and so on
    • Yemen and Socotra
    • A coast to coast trip across the US
    • Namibia
    • The Gal&#225;pagos
    • Cuba
    • Panama (beautiful beaches and forest)
    • Andaman and Nicobar islands



    I also have a minor obsession with the Chagos Archipelago, Diego Garcia in particular. I think I have a mild case of islomania actually.

    I'd go anywhere really, bar a few places like Uzbekistan and Baku (Azerbaijan). I wouldn't mind going to Somalia if it wasn't so dangerous. From the photos I've seen, its coastline looks spectacular.

    ^Very interesting Raffles - not that I would expect anything less from you !

    I have similar hankering for a "Motorcycle Diaries" style adventure in the rest of the Americas. Though as I get older I worry about my durability when far from home and as a result am a little more conservative with my traveling than I would ideally like to be - oh well!

    I would go to Cancun. They have all-inclusive resorts for amazingly cheap. It includes hotel, food, and drinks. Not to mention the beaches are spectacular.

    Mars. I hear it has nice beaches, you woudn't have to worry about getting sun burned but it's hard to keep the dust out of your sandwhiches.

    The bars are great though....
