India, Sumatra, Japan, DRC, Tanzania and the south of the US are my main places.
Funnily enough I don't like south USA, but that's why I want to go. I'm just curious so see all the weirdness up close, and see one of those churches. Also I really do like American food and I want to travel around visiting the restaurants I've seen featured on those food network programmes.

I've been there three times to visit my friend (Tennesse mostly, but also Georgia and North Carolina) and then one Florida trip with my family. It is not weird at all. It is a beautiful area with extremely friendly people for the most part. I love it down there!

I blame the media for colouring my views.
But but but...

that accent.

LA... I've read a few of your posts, and I have a ... more jaded view of Los Angeles. You should come by and see for yourself.

Rhode Island. There's a lot to like about Providence, it's a very chill town, and the eats are *fabulous*.

There are ... at least two sides to the Republic of Ireland. There's hanging out in Dublin, which is where I live. Fairly fantastic town. It's a little short on things to do; it's no Vancouver and it's not like skiing facilities (or snow) are nearby. All the usual modern bits are there; it's the capital of a modern nation.

Then... There's the rest of Ireland. A vehicle and about an hour's travel away from Dublin (ideally without any idea where you're going) will likely put you in a square kilometer of land with maybe 30 other humans in that square kilometer. That changes a number of things, mostly for the better.

When visiting Ireland for more than a few days, do try to obtain transport and just drive somewhere.

I've never been to Scandinavia and I'd like to go some day. A fjord cruise is appealing, as is a wander around the barren Icelandic landscape. Norway's just a hop, skip and jump away, but it's very expensive.

Iceland - People seem cool.

Isle of Man - Saw a movie that was shot on there. Beautiful landscape.

Both of these places fascinate me too (I mentioned Iceland in my post). My Dad used to go to the Isle of Man, for his holidays, with his pals, before he met my Mum. He swears he saw a pair of fairies, having a conversation, although he knew it was just a shadow. He says the place is like that and you can easily think there are little people around.

I want to go there all the more! It looks like a very mystical, romantic place to me.
