Where would you most like to go; money no object, time of no consequence, photographically idealic or not?

I, like im sure most of you, have several, but if I had to pick one it would probably be Inner Mongolia and the Gobi Desert...I'm sure I could do it for a reasonable price but the logistics of it are such a p.i.t.a. I've always chalked it up a a dream destination instead of a realistic one.

I'm curious about everyone else because it's always fun to dream, and maybe steal someone else's ;)

I always wanted to go to Africa. To see the birthplace of man would be something to remember.

I've always wanted to take a two or three-week (minimum) trip to Egypt. Stay at the Mena House in Cairo, then weave down the Nile on a boat stopping at all of the major sites before heading back up and finishing at Mena House again.

Trips like this are set up, but they're expensive. You're talking $5-6k for a 2-3 week trip! And that was several years ago. Of course, one could just buy a plane ticket, head over there and do it all on-the-fly...

Then there's Namibia and South Africa. Tibet. China and Japan. Scandinavia. Alaska.

Did I mention that I live to travel? Except this stupid "work" thing is always getting in the way. :D

I’m extremely fortunate. I go there every year. The Mozambiquan shore of Lago Nyassa (aka Lake Malawi). As far from hustle and bustle as one can get :D

Jaap I've been to Niassa reserve (before photography became a hobby :(), but unfortunately missed a chance to go over to the Lake. Looks beautiful.

I would like to take my wife to Taormina, Sicily. I've been there a few times while in the service and found it would make a very wonderful romantic setting to take my wife. Just the two of us. I vision sitting at one of the outdoor cafes enjoying the view of Mt Etna in the distance with a nice espresso and a dish of Crème brûlée.

That's a good man, the potential happiness of your wife makes it a dream vacation. I think my current girlfriend and every other in the past would absolutely hate going to the Gobi and Inner Mongolia, but that's still where I want to go! :D

That would be a great trip, Duane! The Almafi coast is also very nice, as is the Lake Como area. So many gorgeous areas in Italy.

Plus as I play Andrea Bocelli in the background it won't seem so out of place as he does here in the mountains of NC.
