I live in england and london terrifies me… it worlds apart from the majority of the rest of the UK

 

there is so much cultural diversity though, we are a kingdom made up of multiple countries undecided and have thousands upon thousands of years of trade with almost every country and depending on where you go we even have different languages – our strong history includes the viking, the romans, the celts, the pagans and many more

 

and if you come in summer it can be plesent weather wise – its 17c today and I live at one of the highest, coldest points of england

ethereal594 :  I like the cultural diversity personally but when I’m in London I can’t wait to get back out to the countryside. Live in East Sussex and it’s not normally cold and miserable.

Hmm, this is a tough one. I’d say anywhere where there’s a lot of political unrest/war I want to avoid. 

Since I’m biased, I think the US has tons to offer in the way of geography, culture, experiences, etc. The land mass itself lends basically every climate and attraction… beach, desert, mountains, plains, lakes, oceans, etc. There’s some breathtaking scenery in North America, and much more to the states than just New York and LA. The National Parks are phenomenal, and a good place to start.

Pretty much just the US and Australia. I’ve lived and travelled in the states before but I’ve no desire to return (food tends to disagree with me,  and just generally be too sweet), and I’ve just never been too interested in the crazy flight time to Australia.

Hmm tough question because I like to keep an open mind and know that people/places do change over time but as of right this moment:

-Puerto Rico (been there, not a fan, sorry)

-North Korea (for obvious reasons)

-India (I travel there for work, never would go for fun)

-Parts of the Middle East where women’s rights aren’t equal

EllyAnne :  I’m in Leicestershire, in the countryside too. I can only go to London for a couple of days max to see a show or something. Nope, I mean I guess it does rain but nowhere near the amount people assume. Here it is a sunny 22C today ☺️

I’m surprised by all the people who said North Korea, as if it’s an option.

 

I recently had a friend ask if I wanted to go to Brazil with her, and just didn’t feel excited about it. And not because of the Zika virus, but I’m just not interested. Anywhere in South Africa has never appealed, and same with Japan and Russia.

I think places I wouldn’t be interested in going to would be random small towns in Western Europe/USA as there would be nothing exciting or interesting about it like “oh wow don’t they just lead such a different way of life here…ah, no they don’t…it’s just a small town…”.

We avoid conflict zones but that’s not say I don’t want to go to those places for the culture & scenery some day when it’s safer.

Typical charter destinations aren’t on the top of our list either.

Darling Husband doesn’t like a difficult holiday so experiencing nature for a week on horseback or going on a half day hike limits places I’d visit with him because unless we can helicopter in he’s more reluctant (and then we’re understandably reluctant on the cost!). 

We haven’t taken holidays apart since we met (apart from him going on one pre-planned boating week with the guys in the Greek islands the year we met, their little boat got spectacularly ransacked and robbed day 2 while they were out at dinner, passports & clothes and the lot all gone, traumatised he had to abandon ship quite literally, checked in to a 5 star in Rome until his emergency passport was issued and then joined me in an Eco spa resort in the tranquil part of Ibiza island). That reminds me that apparently WE WILL NEVER GO TO GREECE EVER. But I still think we’ll go to Rome together because even through his ordeal  he could tell I would enjoy sightseeing Rome. 🤗
