    I haven’t really been anywhere overseas on holiday… BUT I did move from South Africa to New Zealand when I was 11, and we had a stop over in Sydney for a few hours.. don’t think that counts though Tongue Out

    I’d love to travel the world!!! Fiance and I plan on doing an OE when we finish studying Smile I’d love to go to England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Greece, Netherlands, Maldives, Samoa, Tonga, France, Italy, Japan, Thailand, Australia and America. I’m also wanting to volunteer in either Nigeria or Romania oneday, either in an orphanage, clinic or school Smile

    I’ll always live in New Zealand though. I’m definitely a New Zealander at heart. What did you bee’s who have been to NZ think of it? Tongue Out

    I’m 31 years old, from the U.S. and I’ve been to 27 countries.  My original goal was 30 by 30, but I’ve fallen just a bit shy of that if you don’t count repeat trips (which I don’t!). I’ve also been to 23 states (not including PR), and I’d like to get to all 50:

    1.Russia x4: 

    2. Ireland x2:

    3. Northern Ireland:

    4. England:

    5. France:

    6. Spain x2:

    7. Germany:

    8. Italy x2:

    9. Puerto Rico x 2 (not counted for country count)

    10. Costa Rica:

    11. Nicaragua:

    12. Australia:

    13. Greece:

    14. Croatia:

    15. Turkey:

    16. Bulgaria:

    17. Egypt:

    18. Morocco:

    19. St. Thomas:

    20. Antigua:

    21. Dominica :

    22. Canada:

    23. Vatican City:

    24.  Finland:

    25.  Estonia:

    26. Antigua:

    27. Dominican Republic:

    28. Switzerland:


    I want to travel everywhere.  Next year I think I’m going to Bermuda & I’d like to add Mexico soon since I’ve never been there. It’s a neighboring country so it seems like it should be next. Peru has always been my dream trip, so I think that’s going to be my present to myself in 2014 when I finish my PhD.

    @MissMfutureMrsB:  I’ve been to New Zealand, although it was nearly 11 years ago now. I love it!

    I’m still trying to drag DH over and have seriously considered relocating there permanently (as he’s on the list of priority professions). Scotland and New Zealand have a lot of similarities (some cultural aspects, landscape, general political leanings, sheep) and there’s a long history of Scots settling well there.

    Plus I have some very good friends there and one just had a baby who I’m longing to visit.

    I love to travel, and Fiance and I have always made it the top priority in our lives. The vast majority of our disposable income goes on travelling, and we want to see as much of the world as we can before having kids (we’ll still travel with children, but most likely wouldn’t be able to afford long distance flights etc very often at all with them). Because of this, I’ve been to 43 countries so far! And all 7 continents – I ticked off my final continent, Antarctica, last year.

    For me, travel is everything. But I know it’s not the same for others though – friends of mine can’t believe all the things we forego in order to travel frequently – it wouldn’t be their choice! I completely respect that too.

    I’d also love to see more of the UK too – there’s so much just around the corner!

    I have only been to two other countries before. One is Canada and the other Belize. I want to go more places, but I keep being drawn back to Belize. Camping in a tent on an island that is part of an atoll is amazing. I can’t wait to go back and snorkle in that reef again.

    @SpecialSundae:  It’s awesome ae? I just love the laid back attitude here, and I love seeing children playing in the streets on their bikes and skateboards,playing in the park and hanging out with friend’s at the mall etc, being safe and having some independancy. It’s something I didn’t have in South Africa. You couldn’t go anywhere without your mum and dad being with you. I’d love to travel to Scotland oneday. The scenery looks amazing, and I LOVE Scottish accents Smile I’d also love a Scottish winter holiday all snuggled up in blankets by a fire.
