Where should we go next – VOTE

I am trying out using a poll, we are back from Alaska, but still posting our pictures, but where do you think we should go next? Taking ideas. I do not have Peru in the mix, but it is for sure on our short list as well.

      1. I’m not sure where all you’ve been. My top choice to visit has always been Ireland.

      2. Ireland does sound wonderful, do you think Spring would be a good time?

      4. Shanghai is well worth seeing, but I wouldn’t go there at the moment – too much unrest and especially if you’re Canadian they just might arrest you. We were there in 2004 and back-packed (not a tour). The people were good to us and we did have a friend who lived in Beijing. She was one of my husband’s students. It is a large country and so much to see. We were there a month and spent a few days in Tibet as well.
        My vote would be for Peru. I don’t think there’s much unrest there at the moment and there’s definitely a lot to see. We haven’t been there yet, but it’s on our list.

      5. We are American, I had no idea there were issues over there right now??? we will check that out

      6. They have already arrested several Canadians in main land China because of the arrest of Meng Wanzhou, the CFO of Chinese tech giant Huawei. She is being held in Canada for extradition to US. Also Main land China is very jumpy over what’s going on in Hong Kong. I know when we were there they were probably checking up on us all the time since we weren’t on a tour where movement is controlled.

  7. How about the states? Northern California, the Rockies, Dakota’s, Montana, and Canada, including Nova Scotia. Staying local.

    1. Aha, we are going to do the states, all of the ones we already missed – We plan for our older years to rent a trailer or buy a used one and just travel across the states – and hit as much as we want for as long as we want. Our current goal is to hit the places that would be too hard to do when we are too old and move less efficiently.

      1. We are also going to do that. I have relatives in this area of the country as does my husband. I understand. My husband and I went to some interesting and some rougher areas, more likely him in the Army, and me as an ESL instructor. I loved Israel!

      2. ESL instructor? What is that? Israel, for sure is on the list.

      3. Teaching of English as a second language or more commonly known overseas as a teacher of English as a foreign language. I never intended to visit Israel but ended up working on a kibbutz in my early 20’s. Long story!Dave’s ESL is a way to find jobs teaching English overseas if you are able to travel.

      6. Hmmm, maybe then. Great and very helpful advice, we are just still trying to figure out the best way to retire. So this is an option for sure.

  8. If you are up for adventure, go somewhere that slightly scares you. If you are looking for a peaceful trip, go somewhere that makes you think of a place where you could retire. Or maybe you’re looking for an intellectually stimulating destination, like a culture steeped in history. Or a place with incredible food!!! Or maybe a country that speaks to your own heritage.
    Campbell and I have always wanted to go to New Zealand after seeing LOTR for the first time all those years ago, but I also want to go to India because I’ve had a deep love for the country since I was pen pals with a missionary there at the ages of 10-12, and Campbell loves Scotland and we want to go backpacking there one day, Lord-willing. So I suppose it’s the reasons! “I want to see mountains, Gandalf, mountains! And find somewhere quiet where I can finish my book.” ~Bilbo from “The Fellowship of the Ring” 😀

    1. Ok, so we agree, solid reasoning. We are thinking just like you. We will his all the cool hard places to go now, then when were in our 60 and 70s, we will stick closer to home and make things simplier, then hopefully have our 80 and 90s to do little and dare we say 100s if we are blessed to just sit and hold hands.
