    So if we end up in the UK, in the post-apocalypse, you'll be my protection?

    Jolly Olde Englund would be a bad place for me post apocalypse. I cannot readily identify what is "food", and stealable ammo is in short supply. Plus, the Yardies also know my rep, and they don't like it. If there are more than eight or so of them, I probably won't be able to take them all.

    I might be able to pick off the weak ones for you. Might.

    I would like to add to my list any "all inclusive resort". I shudder when I think of the people those horrible things attract.

    I would want to go to Vegas, just to see the tackiness of the strip, and take in a few good meals. More than once though seems unnecessary.

    Add this to my list. My gf is obsessed with these and cruises. It completely baffles me. We could just spend the same money and get "pampered" in the town we live. Why do it on a big boat? I would much rather take the money and explore something new (new to me), or something out of the ordinary. I know this might cost a bit more, but I feel we would get a better experience than waiting in a buffet line with a bunch of fatties.

    I used to think Atlanta would be nice, but apart from that Lee 144406 guy most posters from Atlanta seem to have some sort of limited brain function.

    Saudi and the UAE are both places I have no desire to visit.

    Also Branson (surprised it hasn't been mentioned already) unless Yakov Smirnoff is performing.

    I think I have some sort of mental block against going to Germany, but I can't articulate why.

    Atlanta is not nice. I used to live there and I escaped.

    Croatia? Northern Ireland? Portugal? I can't really speak for the others on your list, but I'll bet you'd be safer in any of these countries than you would be walking down your own street. Unless of course you live in a Disney gated community, which I admit may be the case.

    I think this is only interesting if you list the "shockers" of sorts. Not interest in going to...

    Germany
    Eastern Europe
    East Africa
    Australia (been, it's kinda boring)

    Funny that Croatia has been mentioned; that's like top 3 on the list of places I haven't been where I really want to go.

    I can maybe understand half of the list, but seriously you must not know very much about a lot of these places a la Burkina Faso is a single place for example.

    WTF is wrong with Belize, among others?! I've actually spent some time there and aside from Belize City it is a pretty damn nice place to travel in. There's some amazing geography (dove the Blue Hole [​IMG] ) in addition to some pretty impressive Mayan ruins. The locals were all very friendly whether I was in or out of the tourist areas as well. Hell I was sitting in a restaurant eating and a family invited me to sit with them and even gave me a ride out to a ruin I was planning on visiting, they absolutely refused to let me give them any money for gas/inconvenience!
