The Falkland Islands. Beautiful, clean and peaceful. Everyone should visit. I lived there at one point and I miss it.

Also, I have to mention Carisbrook Stadium in Dunedin... Alas, I've never been inside it, but I've looked proudly at it from nearby... :? :lol:

Mmm, yeh! Work might take me to Antarctica one day, and I'd love to visit on the way by!

The Anapurna mountain ranges springs instantly to mind for the share beauty of the place!
Loads of other places throughout Asia also spring to mind for the incredible cultures and histories.
Several places in Australia spring to mind like the Cape Tribulation rainforrest or the Great Barrier reef.
The countless numbers of picture perfect lakes and rocky coastlines of Sweden or the grand old cities in various places around Europe are definitly amazing places to be.

......but......
Home is where my heart is and I would have to say that Kapiti Island just off the mainland where I grew up is my favorite place in the world! It's a glimpse at what New Zealand could look like if my ancestors hadn't F'd the whole lot up!
It's a nature reserve with only NZ native flora and fauna! Beautiful! More birds than you could shake a stick at!
Not to mention the most glorious sunsets I've ever seen!.......

Dublin Ireland. And my father-in-law's house in the middle of nowhere.

Another vote for Nepal from me. Amazing people and scenery.

The Isle of Skye is breathtaking too though.

My favourite place isn't in the world, it's in the dream world.
Going shopping? Take a carrier bag to re-use.

Noooo you're not! I like really rough and barren looking places. I once made a 3 day trip through the Rajasthan desert which I really enjoyed. Unfortunately, not being very clued up in those days, it was on camel back. :oops: Obviously wouldn't use that "mode of transport" anymore now. Some stretches of Cappadocia look really desert like too, that's what I liked about it. Oh, and I did spend some time in the Sinai desert, which was absolutely beautiful too! 8) :D Gosh, this thread brings up some memories (back in the days.... now imagine Billy in a rocking chair with knitting work, hi hi!).
