Best Vacation Spots by TheSpamerifficCathy on 5 October 2002 6:18am
I don't get much of a chance to travel, but I have been to two places that I absolutely love. My favorite would have to be Gatlinburg, Tennessee. If you haven't been there, you should. It's smack-dab in the middle of the Great Smoky Mountains and one of the most romantic places I've ever been to. I went in the fall, and it was absolutely gorgeous there.
My second favorite vacation spot is Washington D.C. I loved all of the historic sites and museums that were totally free!

Washington, D.C. is great, but can't compare that to Mexico, Peru, Egypt, Jordan or China. No way. Top spots for me:
1. Machu Picchu (Peru)
2. Petra (Jordan)
3. Uxmal (Mexico)
4. Terracotta Army - Xi'an (China)
5. Luxor (Egypt)

I'm English by the way.

Yeah I agree with the last message in general. For me....

1. Egypt (Luxor, Cairo, AbuSimbel)
2. Canadian Rockies (Canada of course)
3. Paris (France)
4. Milford Sound (New Zealand)
5. Everest (well base camp anyway!)

That list is just off the top of my head, might change if you ask me tomorrow, but I'm sure 1 or 2 will always be there is the list.

I've visited the top three, the next one will be in a years time, no. 5 will have to wait!

Thought I'd add a few more just for fun, not in any order.

1. Highlands and Islands of Scotland
2. Lake District, England
3. Slovenia, quiet part of the Alps
4. Some parts of Greece and its islands
5. I also thought the CN Tower in Toronto was pretty impressive.

i would like to offer two lists firstly my top list that ive visited and then my top five of places i dream of visiting.
1. Rome 1. Manhattan
2. Paris 2. Las Vegas
3. Amsterdam 3. Hong Kong
4. Pompeii 4. Japan
5. Venice 5. Egypt
There are so mamy wonderful places that we dont even know about so I appreciate im leaving out loads of beautiful and interesting places but we all have our favourites for various reasons the opera at verona the grand prix at monte carlo the list could be limitless its only from tv programmes like michaels and word of mouth that we can find out about the places we dont yet know.

I havent been to many places, but here are my contributions anyway.

Fav places: (in no particular order)
4.Nrth Carolina USA
5.Norfolk Broads UK (strange I know)

My Wish list:
1.Hong Kong

As I said I have not visited many 'exotic' places, but I am still a strong believer that travel broadens the mind. If you cant travel, why not read about travel. Which is really the origin of my 'wish list' and why we are all on this Palin message board!
