    My wife will always be my travel companion. She shares the same love of traveling that I do and she love to travel non-traditionally like I do as well.

    If it's right now, India. India looks captivating and enchanting. The food, the animals, the people, the architecture, I would love to experience it all. And ride an elephant.

    If we get to choose the time of year, Iceland is my #1 choice. If I can only go once, I would like to go a bit earlier in the year, just so there is as much color and landscape diversity as possible.Iceland

    I know you mentioned it on the podcast (which I like by the way) but I would take my Sister and fly to Sydney and take a cruise around New Zealand. She has been an elementary school teacher for 33 years but she is also a quadriplegic and has still built a life. This is her dream vacation/cruise. It would give me no greater joy to see her face when she learned she was going. *hugs*

    Brazilimage from etftrends.comI'd like to visit South America so would fly in to Brazil for its famed beaches and to see Cristo Redentorand then explore further south, visiting more countries in that area gradually by road. Perhaps heading to the border to be wowed by the Iguazú Falls
    Iguazú Fallsthen on to Argentina to soak in the culture, enjoy lots of delicious Malbec, learn how to Tango,

    Argentinaimage from en.wikipedia.organd move further to Patagonia Patagonia (Argentina) Chilewould be next, to explore the Desierto de Atacama and stay at a ranch. After that we can cross the border over to Bolivia. Uyuni Salt FlatGetting to see the Uyuni Salt Flat would be a dream, and after exploring more of Bolivia, we would head to Peru and hike the Inca trail to Machu Picchu
    Aguas CalientesI'd be more than delighted to see more of Peru and going on a ceviche eating marathon!!

    We would drive around so we will be seeing much more on the way, making memories and finding little moments in unexpected places.

    Seems like a pretty long trip, but I will be traveling with my husband who is my best friend, so the time wouldn't matter because we have so much fun together. I mean, it's who you have by your side that matters and by my side is an awesome man!

    So, how will you be sending those tickets? ;)

    That most important trait in a travel companion is truly compatibility! It's what most attracted me to my husband. We like to do the same things, see the same things, be adventurous with our dining, enjoy our time, and most importantly-we like to mix things up. Our trips don't always have to be the same-like beach-time, or museum focused.

    As of right now (12:59 PM, MDT), I would probably say I want to jet off to Chiang Mai/Chiang Rai area of Thailand. That might have something to do with the fact that I was just doing a bit of research on it in the hopes that it might be our next trip! I would stay at the Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort-to be the close to these magnificent creatures and be in this breathtaking setting would be an epic experience to say the least. And I would love to see the Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep-it looks amazing!

    I would fly into Vienna go visit Dubrovnik, Budapest Prague and Bratislava. I have been to Vienna before and absolutely loved it, so I want to take my partner in crime, Jess, with me. I think a good travel companion for me needs to share my energy level, sense of adventure, love of trying new food, and love of the arts. I know we would soak in some symphonies, eat some kuchen, visit some castles, and fall more in love with the world and each other (If that's even possible).

    I would get two tickets to Easter Island and bring along a good friend of mine who has the same quirky sense of humor as me.

    I find that traveling with a person who you share the same sense of humor with is a really good thing as I often get in to weird situations when I travel.

    I would go with my youngest son, because he is very curious, open to new experiences always has a solution for the worst case scenarios and is never tired to walk another 10 minutes. Would go to Bhutan the happiest country in Asia, where their king prefers his people happy over the measure of the country GDP. Sounds like a place we could learn a lot about the human-being and the world we live in.


    I Hope this helped a little bit, if you need to plan any other aspect of your trip, don´t hesitate to send me a e-mail.

    I would take my husband, Adam (by choice! he's my favorite companion), and we'd fly off to Japan - to hit up Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Nagoya, Matsumoto - basically anywhere we can go and EAT and eat well. We both love food and adore having the chance to try new things. Japan is on the top of our wish list both for the cultural and the culinary experience. I also wouldn't pass up the chance to experience the Tsukiji Fish Market.Tsukiji Fish Marketimage from honestcooking.com

    I'd take my wife to Tanzania to visit the Ol Doinyo Lengai volcano, and any other cool volcanoes in the area. We love seeing the world at work, and there is nothing like seeing a volcano to remind you that the world is still alive and changing.

    If you travel with me, you'd better be able to move a long way on your own two feet ... and eat anything that someone puts in front of you.

    I have to agree with Jacey, if you are married you for sure have to take your spouse. That being said I would pick my husband. I have two place, one I have been to before, one new. For the previously visited place I would have to say Munich. Love the culture, not touristy feel, Oktoberfest, and the not hot weather. For somewhere new I would want to go to Tokyo. Just looks so fascinating and like you could never be bored there.

    Those two tickets are for me and my best friend/husband. We've been to 40 countries and we're addicted to travel. For us, it's all about the food (especially cheese and wine) so we'll fly open-jaw to Athens then begin a road trip to explore the Balkan wine scene. Every glass we have had thus far has been amazing.

    First stop: Ktima Gerovassiliou's privately owned vineyard in Thessaloniki, then off to Melnik because Melnik wine was Winston Churchill's favorite and their Shopska salad looks fab. Macedonia next door, has been making wines for millenia, so they are worthy of trying too. Afterward we'll see what Albania makes; they have a lot of indigenous grape varieties.

    Montenegro

    Not stopping there, though: we really liked the wines we've had from Montenegro, and since they are at about the same latitude Kosovo and Bosnia and Herzegovina can't be ignored. Croatia will definitely round out the itinerary so we'll fly back from Zagreb.

    My husband is Irish and has always dreamed of visiting the beautiful country of Ireland. It is, of course, on our bucket list. His ancestry dates back to Londonderry and the closing of the gates to save the city inLondonderry1688! Every year, they have a parade to celebrate, and it's his dream to take part in it one day. If I could make this trip a reality, it would be a dream come true for him, and for me to see the look on his face as he traces his ancestry roots. He's my soul mate & best friend of 24 years this October.

    "Held each year on the first Saturday in December, the Shutting of the Gates celebrations commemorate the actions of the 13 apprentices who closed the City’s gates in 1688 and set in place the events which led to the Great Siege. The day concludes with the traditional burning of an effigy of Colonel Lundy."

    One day soon ... we hope.

    South Island, New Zealand, with my partner. A cool place (all puns intended) safe, wonderful attitude towards conservation, friendly people - a bit shaken up at times, but that juts makes it interesting!

    Second choice: always Portugal - for the food, wine, port and beautiful scenery!
