…money and disability not being a barrier, where would you go and why?

I would go to Japan because I love their culture and their ethics. I am also a big fan of their food, especially sushi. It also looks like a beautiful and diverse country with stunning countryside and impressive cities.

    What a good question @66Mustang

    I think I would go to Australia/New Zeeland as it's so different to the UK, and the culture there is as well. I don't think I'd enjoy some of the more dangerous wildlife mind!  :D

    What a great question. Thanks for starting this thread @66Mustang

    I would go to Disney Florida because Disney is my happy place. I have always dreamed of going there.

    Have you been to Japan yet? It sounds like loving their culture and ethics makes Japan a particularly great place for you. In addition to their food and sights of course. 

    I am looking forward to hearing about other people's dream places  :)

    You`ll probably get fed up of me saying "I spent 20 years in the Royal Navy".........
    During which time I went to many places; in `86 we did a 9 month world deployment that took me to all major continents except India (we were due to go, but HMS Beaver took our slot and we took theirs, going to Australia instead).
    I love Asian food (Asian for all the different varieties of food from the Indian continent), I love their values and their work ethics so, needless to say, I would love to go to India.

    Mines an odd one, I spent a lot of time in the 80's and early 90's working on the Isle of Man and have never got round to going back, so that would be my number 1 choice.

     I spent my childhood holidays on the Isle of Man as I had an aunt and uncle that lived there, in Onchan. I'm the same @woodbine I would love to go back someday.

    How did you find the Isle of Man @SueHeath? I am assuming you enjoyed it as you would like to go back if you could  :)

    We went to Russia about 4 years ago @SueHeath, would love to go back but obviously that’s not going to happen in the near future.
    Here’s a photo I took at Peterhof Palace.
