I’d either head to the middle east and see Egypt, the far east and hit Thailand, or my final choice would be South Africa for a safari!
I enjoyed Australia in my 20’s but after the China virus, I don’t think travel would be as enjoyable. I’d rather have the cash now.
Depends on what you want to see/do/experience. People? Food? Quiet? Museums?
Europe is a great place to start. Before, as my uncle would say, “the broad” took over and ruined it, I’d have said New Zealand.
Perhaps you’re looking to get away from it all! As a certified “Bluenose” I can say for certain that the most peaceful place on the planet, is here, the North Pole. Sunshine, sea, awesome sunsets, picnics, maybe a little fishing…
Don’t consider the South Pole, too many scientists!
Don’t try this at home, that’s a heart attack waiting to happen.
Water temperature a balmy 28 degrees!
People would laugh but a Week in Poland would be very cool. The Poles are one of the few people in Europe that love Americans. A USAF pilot i know went there for training and he said that the people were nice and the women were stunning.
I think I would go to the greek islands, Rhodes(only one I can name lol). I like warm weather, the sea and good food. Not much on olives though.
Crime is bad in Brazil, Argentina and with the Venezuela problems right now it would be a pass for me.
I was thinking more along the lines of Costa Rica or Chile.
There are dangerous places everywhere. Doesn’t mean we should all hide in our bunkers. My wife and I even somehow survived a month in Guatemala and Belize. Granted things are a little sketchier there now than when we went 8 or so years ago.
As with going places in the US, follow the rules of stupid:
Don’t go stupid places
With stupid ppl
Doing stupid things
At stupid times
I would apply that to traveling as well.
Dangers in travel remind me of when I went to South Korea for work – 3 miles from the DeMilitarized Zone (DMZ). My employer provided a safety rating and warnings for everywhere I would be on the trip. Ironically, the safest rating went to South Korea, and the most dangerous to Detroit!
Thank you, I sincerely appreciate the inputs. You guys have hit on several destinations I had in mind, as well as now have me internet exploring some I had not thought to consider. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it) don’t intend to lock in for another 6 to 12 months because I do not feel 100% recovered from the open heart surgery I needed 6 months ago.
Seychelles or the Maldives.
The only disadvantage… you will need another week to recover from hangover.
Oh yeah. I hear they drink like Russians there. They can really sock it away.
