You can only take ONE more trip for the rest of your life. Where do you go?

This is it. This is your last trip, so you have to really make it count. Where would that last trip be to? And what would you do? Think common trip length, like a couple weeks, and not like 6 months i.e. not an RTW trip over the course of 6 months to 100 countries.

I would go home to Australia. I would fly into Ayers Rock (Uluru) to watch the sunset over the rock, then head up to Kimberley, during the wet season and take a helicopter ride across the Bungle Bungle National Park. I would end my trip on Whitehaven Beach in the Whitsundays, eating the freshest seafood on the planet.

If I can't have a month, then I'd do three weeks also. I'd head out to Egypt to cruise the Nile, visit Luxor and then back to Cairo to stand in the shadow of the Great Sphinx of Giza.

Ten days later, I'd hit Paris to rinse the dust off. I'd stand under the Eiffel Tower in the night sky, enjoy the lights and then a train up to Florence

Ah, what a wonderful question!!

Spain...always and forever. the people, the food, just the vibe of the country. Most people don't understand and have a preference for Italy, or Southeast Asia. But Spain has my heart. I would have to go back to Andalucía and spend some time in Barcelona. And I would have Duende as it would be my last trip to Spain.

A toss up over culture or the natural landscape.  I think it would need to be culture.  I'd head to Scandinavian countries like Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden, and Iceland. The people there are healthy happy and friendly. And they have beautiful views.

I'd say New York City.

If the reason I'm having a last trip is because I'm dying, I'll blow all my money there too and live like a millionaire for the last few days of my life. 

That city makes you feel so alive !

If I had to choose one place to travel and then be back in "real life' in one spot for the rest of my life, I think I'd choose somewhere with natural, breathtaking geography, rather than somewhere that is interesting because of the culture and people.

Of course there are amazing benefits to learning a culture and people, but I think I would want to choose a more solitary place that would inspire reflection and redirection in life. The fjords of NorwayAntarctica as someone stated already, Iceland or Greenland, perhaps Tibet. Somewhere where unlike anything I've seen thus far so I can experience the grandeur of this world and refocus on what is important.

The thought of not returning to South Korea saddens me - but in a few weeks, I'd: 

- Explore the thousands of islands in Dadohae National Marine Park 

- Eat, eat, & eat some more all through Jeolla-do 

- One of Korea's other important & beautiful islands - Dodong-ri, Ulleung-eup

- Food tourism to the home of ddakgalbi, Chuncheon

- And generally try to get to all four corners of Korea again.

While it would be very tempting to return to South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands and Antarctica I would really need to cover more territory in Mother Africa. As my normal trip is a month to six weeks I figure for this "last trip" I could take in Morocco and get out into the Sahara Desert then head to Ethiopia to visit the Omo River and finally get to Tanzania for the great migration.

Tiffany from Corvallis

There are a million places that I haven't seen that I'd love to go like Shanghai, Bolivia, and the Galapagos... but, if I'm totally honest and this is my very last trip, I'd have to spend it seeing the people that have made my past travels special.

I'd fly to Aachen for a couple days to see a "tante" that I adopted while living there, then to Valencia to see my Spanish friends and family, to walk the streets of that city, stop in my favorite shops, and visit Pastelería C. Aixa and the sweet family who run it. After a week in Spain, I'd fly to Trapani to see the new bakery my friend has opened and eat ice cream in brioche on the beaches there.

Then, if time allowed, I'd head to San Francisco to wrap up my time with family and go to my favorite beach near Pescadero.

Travel has fed me in a million different ways, but beyond the sights, sounds, and flavors of each place, it's always the people themselves, from the friendly waiter to the lasting friendships, that touch my heart and make those places "home" instead of just another place. A last trip would have to be a trip for that - for hugs, smiles, shared space, and a visit that is more than virtual.
