Realistically, I would love to visit NYC. I'd love to see a Broadway show and do the whole vegan-restaurant-tour.

I'm probably the only person who doesn't want to visit Australia or NZ - not because I wouldn't love to meet the PPKers there, but because I don't really like traveling for days to get to a destination. That's also why I'm not interested in Japan or India. But if someone invented transporters, I'd totally go.

That's a shame, I suppose we'll have to visit you then!

YES!!

I'm trying to resist a NYC trip this year and save money for a trip to Thailand & Laos with a friend.

Practically, I have a trip planned to Seattle in December, so far.

I have still never been to New Orleans and I've wanted to see it since I was a teenager.

Not been there yet but would like to:

Tokyo
Kyoto
Stockholm
Barcelona
Paris
Vienna
maybe Seoul
Chicago

Been and would go again:
Berlin
Munich
Kohln
Philadelphia
New York (would live there!)
Madison

How come nobody wants to come to glorious Exeter?! You can see the beautiful Devon countryside, inhale the freshest of airs, be at the seaside in ten minutes, be spoiled for culinary choice at the two vegetarian restaurants and revel in the backwards-ness of it all!

I'm actually amazed no-one has Stoke on their list.

If I could, I'd visit all cities.

Here are some of the cities I would specifically list and I really don't mean just these cities but surrounding areas as well:

Rome, It
Florence, It
Genova, Italy
Prague, CZ
Barcelona, ES
Madrid, ES
Dublin, IE (actually just want to do a driving tour of Ireland)
Reykjavik, Iceland
Norway (Fjords specifically - no particular city)
Machu Picchu, Peru
Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
Paro, Bhutan (and just an overall Bhutan trip)
Oamaru, New Zealand (and general south Island, possibly North Island new Zealand trip)
Marrakech, Morocco (and general Morocco trip)
San Jose, Costa Rica (and general Costa Rica trip)
Cairo, Egypt (and pyramids, possibly Nile cruise)
Istanbul, Turkey
Delphi, Greece (and other parts of Greece that I haven't been to)
Bangkok, Thailand
Buenos Aires, Argentina

In the US, places that I haven't been yet that I'd like to visit include New Orleans, Boston, Portland (Maine), Portland (Oregon), Seattle, Yellowstone, Charleston, wherever Vantine lives in FL, and almost anywhere really.

I'm a little sad though because I've decided to buckle down my traveling budget which probably means no international trips for a few years.

I was there maybe a year or two before the Czech Republic joined the EU, Prague was just emerging as a popular tourist destination, and all the locals still seemed really welcoming and excited to show off their town to visitors. But I knew that probably wouldn't last...


Well, I think most people are still quite welcoming to individual or small group travelers. The large tour groups cause what I call "tourist hate" because they don't realize that we live and work in the city center. We were just talking about this at school last week, the Charles University has buildings near the Old Town square and when I go to work from there I need to cross it and go through one of the narrow lanes leading out of it. There's usually a neverending crowd of people walking at the speed of 1 meter per minute. And politely asking the tourists to let me pass doesn't work. So I often hate tourists. All PPKers are of course excepted from this tourist hate. Come to Prague, it's fun!


Have you been to Greece (Athens and various islands)? How would you compare it to Greece? I mean, I loved Greece when I went before it joined the EU but it was very touristy and tourism was a big part of their industry, at least where I went. I hate touristy places but loved Greece so much. The people were so friendly and it was just awesome.

Yay for people who want to visit Edinburgh! If you do, you'll want to move here. Seriously.

I keep forgetting places - I also want to visit New Orleans and Amsterdam (apart from just being in the airport).


I was looking at trips and saw a trip that started in Edinburgh then did the Norway Fjords! That sounds so much fun. I may keep that trip on my list since Scotland sounds like fun and I really want to see the Fjords!

Done. If anyone comes to New Orleans, I'll crash your party plans and make myself a part of your vacation, but I'll also probably try to go back home with you.

My husband and I aren't really the party type, we are like the boring type. We would want to walk around, possibly go hiking, eat some food, walk around some more. And we'd take you back home with us. We stole Jilly and vegchic before and we have a spare room but you might be attacked by cats.
