    Always hoped to make a trip to see the pyramids before my stay in the pine box, guess it will have to be the Luxor in Las Vegas instead :'(


Good evening ladies and gentlemen. I had hoped to start a new topic from this quote asking where people would like to travel and why, or what their memorable travels have been and why. But alas, search as I tried to no avail, I could find no new topic button. Perhaps our gracious host would be so kind as to start such a topic?

With wanderlust am I stricken friends. Not unreasonably so, I would settle for the continents I have not yet been and just once more through those I have. Distant skyscapes and landscapes, smells, tastes and sounds. The sensory **** of new and unknown-the excitement! Some day, some day I shall sail away. Mountains, jungles, forests, plains, before they are all to progress onward march. Are the great plains all covered in corn?

Where to begin with what I want to see, feel, taste and touch. Damn it I want all of it. The Great Wall of China, Himalayan Mountains, Stonehenge, The Amazon, and some of the stops on Man versus Food. Best burgers in the world you say? I'll decide that!

Hi Walter, while you certainly list places I would love to visit, Stonehenge would be my first choice if forced to pick. Those stones have always fascinated me. Really don't know why, drawn to look at them for some strange reason.

Unfortunately my travelling companion, a younger relative looms large in the foreground. If you edit him out closing the left or right eye depending, using your imagination you get a glimpse of this iconic city.

Great pictures Walter. This one kicked off the day and made me laugh. An Industrious Panhandler, would be my title for it.  What a hot ticket.  :D

I was never much of a traveler, prefer local places I can reach by car. Never like flying, hate it actually, and now with the TSA, forget it.

Spent a lovely year of my life in Ulm Germany. A beautiful place when you learned to ignore the Nazi damage apparent. How I miss it. A postcard place with a beautiful cathedral which is the hallmark of the town. Their main claim to fame is it was the town where Albert Einstein was born.

Pictures are not mine. I took Kodachrome slides that have long been misplaced or faded. It is hard to believe it was almost fifty years ago.
