Travel Destinations?

Where are some good travel destinations you would recommend to go see? Where are some places you have yet to be and not gone?

I definitely want to go to Rome, Italy. I've always been interested in Ancient Roman culture and Italian boys.

I would recommend visiting Croatia, its a beautiful country and has great beaches!

So where would you guys want to go or recommend?

Re: Travel Destinations?

Rome is great if you have a couple weeks, at least. One week or two days does not do it justice (it is like Paris in that respect). Unfortunately, you could get sick of the hustle and bustle of Rome after a week; best to rent a place in the countryside and make day trips to the city and various towns in Italy.

Yosemite is also wonderful, but you have to go very early or very late to avoid the onslaught of tourists. That's the sad part of it.

Re: Travel Destinations?

I would love to go to Rome and the Vatican. The buildings look magnificent. I have heard that some parts of West Africa like Ivory Coast and Ghana are also beautiful in their own way and a great experience.

Places I enjoyed visiting:
Washington DC, the monuments and museums!
London, England, the museums, people and buildings!
Salt Lake City,Utah, might sound like an odd choice but give it a chance, it is spectacular and there is lots to do!

Places I would not recommend:
Las Vegas, Nevada, surprisingly boring if your idea of fun doesn't involve cheesy musical acts, gambling or drinking
Vancouver, BC, can be very sketchy in parts, the people are not the friendliest

Re: Travel Destinations?

Visit Dublin, its amazing Thats all you need to know

I loved.

Rome - Beautiful city, full of history, culture, good food and hot guys. (Just don't fly Ryanair to get there, awful staff on that route (from Dublin anyway) and taxi drivers will dramatically overcharge at that airport.)

Havana - Very interesting place from a political perspective, quite beautiful too, also more hot guys

Washington D.C - Good city in terms of museums and stuff, also good stuff to see in neighboring states.

Wouldn't recommend

Barcelona - Pickpocketing rife and overrated imho. But visit other areas of Catalonia in France and Spain much nicer people outside Barcelona.

Toronto - Rather boring, some interesting stuff to see but a weekend would probably be enough time to see anything important.

Re: Travel Destinations?

Budapest is the most beautiful city I've ever been to.

Not to imply that I've been to a lot of cities or anything.

Re: Travel Destinations?

Recommend:
Rhodes, Greece . My favorite place in the world, and I'm not even from there
Melbourne, Florida, USA Really great. Great beaches and great weather and very friendly people. Bad nightlife though

NOT Recommend:
Orlando, Florida, USA overrated
Chios, Greece One of the most boring islands in Greece. The nightlife is good but the beaches are average

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

this is soo true. i will never understand people who drool over barcelona. it's a nice city and everything, but plenty of people say it's the greatest city in the world and there are so many pickpockets it ain't funny. there are plenty of places in spain that are more interesting. andalusia is great overall. madrid is also quite cool especially since there are several very interesting places close to it which are all worth a day trip. i also love canary islands, especialy la palma and tenerife.

also, what i don't like about italy in general is that it is so touristy and expensive. i like some places there, though.

there are plenty of destinations in europe that i enjoyed visiting, but it all depends on what you're looking for.
