    • Equatorial Guinea - It sounds like an awful country, but they speak Spanish, so I think it would be interesting to visit
    • Trinidad - such a fascinating mix of cultures there, plus I could have a chance to find a book of "Sweetbread" comic strips that I used to read online
    • Banaue Rice Terraces in Philippines - looks like a beautiful area...I'll take in a few basketball games while I'm there
    • Greater Zimbabwe historic ruins - just to see the history there
    • Lake Titicaca - looks absolutely beautiful and so much to see
    • Jerusalem - so much history
    • Grand Canyon, USA - just a beautiful place to see

    TBP, I'm not going to watch the games at Banaue. I'll go to Manila or Quezon or someplace else for a game. You clown.

    2. Munich, Germany


    3. London, England


    Then some far away places:

    5. Amazonia, Brazil


    And little promotion of nearby places that I visit often:

    Wow...Split, Croatia looks beautiful. I may have to add an eighth choice!

    BTW: Croatia is noted for having very beautiful women, so that alone would be worth the trip.

    Hagia Sophia was built as a christian cathedral (holy wisdom). Upon Turkish conquest it was renamed to Ayasofya and became a mosque. Now it is a museum. So it should either be called the Hagia Sophia Cathedral or the Ayasofya Mosque or most correct of all Hagia Sophia Museum. And it defo is not in Jerusalem...
