Ireland, for me.
Just can't see it happening.
It's the "know" that does it. I'm young, anything could happen...
I think it's pretty unlikely.
It could be awesome there and I just assume otherwise.
and I joked 'are these broadstairs?' and my dad just looked at me angrily.
We left the next day.
I was only 12.
so ahm oot.
that angry sex is the best.
Camber San...hang on.
Doesn't appeal to me.
whilst haggling the best price for a belly-dancer.
WHAT ARE THESE STRANGE AND MAGICKLE THINGS OF WHICH YOU SPEAK
(I hear they sometimes have FIGS and DATES also)!
(although, I would quite like to properly see the Sahara), but I'd go anywhere sub-Saharan.
and am literally dreading having to go to the nigerian delta and southern sudan (which is about to erupt into civil war again0 next year. you are brave.
but then that's largely our fault anyway. That said, this was a "never" go on holiday thread - I probably can't see myself holidaying in Somalia or DRC in the next few years (though I would like to go to the latter).
although i saw an advert in the paper for one of those coach holidays - this one was a Christmas break. The destination? "The Heart Of England". The hotel location? Solihull.
that's a culturally specific reference that none of you will get.
just ignore me.
Having lived there I can say the NT is well worth a visit.
if I may put it so bluntly
Ooooooopraaaaaaaaaah loooooooooooved it.
Crocodiles, locals pissed at 7am, beautiful beaches but don't go swimming (too many stingers), what's not to love.
There was a thread on advrider.com with loads of amazing photos, but the guy who posted them has taken them all down.
Oh, just found them posted somewhere else:
The shoes they lend you in the bowling alley are all 80s Nike ripoffs, it's like being in Back to the Future.
Shame about the oppression really.
There’s a reason the hippies all moved there.
too hot and too far away.
i'm probably going to see england against india in july at nottingham. thats good enough for me.
Having said that, probably the two best test-playing nations at the moment. Might even be playing for the top spot on the ICC rankings. India though - lions at home, lambs away.
doesn't make us best in the world. We can mix it with the best, sure, but we need to beat India, Sri Lanka & the Saffas in their respective homes before we get any big ideas about being the best. This Australian team just isn't a challenge. Fun though ;p
Let's face it only three teams have consistently won away from home - the invincibles (Australia in 40s), West Indies in 1980s and Australia in late 90s/early noughties. You might even leapfrog the lankans after this series, the bokkies too if you can win another test, but Strauss and Flower will most likely shut up shop and be happy with retaining the ashes.
You'll be pressing on the Indians once you beat them at home, but yeah the gap is probably too big to take top spot.
I'd love to go, but they're so far away and cost a fortune to get too and from.
That said, I'm currently dreaming of going on the next Lions tour in 2013 is Aus. Would probably only be able to afford the Tests though
Laugh at the barmy army currently slumming it in dorm rooms because the $A is so high presently. And here's me stuck with two small kids and can't go anywhere to take advantage. Oh well, at least a gigantic TV is cheap.
seems unlikey...as does Iraq and Afghanistan. But who knows in 30 years? WHO KNOWS?
we'll all be going to moon once a year by then anyway.
I can't see myself ever being arsed to go to the Falkland Islands.
and then one year she suggests going there for a couple of weeks at Christmas to see her family? YOU JUST DON'T KNOW.
WHAT THEN, HUH?
I'm too racist to be interested in Americans.
to celebrate her victory there? THEN FUCKING WHAT FOR FUCKS SAKE?
it's a biznizz trip.
she suggests going there to visit family, so you do, and you fall in love with the wild scenery and return on holiday a couple of years later without seeing any of the family cos they're dead.
so i wont go. Im also one of those people who would think its a good idea to marry a stranger out there.
what happens in Vegas...
I dunno. I just ':D' at most things.
I must look like a right pelvis now.
You could get a job on the strip.
I think it'd be alright just for a day but no way would I ever go there for an actual holiday. My brother got married there, it would have been a nice excuse to go then sod off somewhere else but I was in school so had no money of my own to get there.
I don't think i'd just like to go to there. I've always wanted to go to other places in america more like New Orleans or Chicago or boston or miami but I don't have a major urge to see american. I will be going to Paris next year. Its the only place that I reallly really want to go. I will go on my own if I have to but ideally, i'd like to go with a man.
It would be cool to get married in Vegas...by Elvis or something? but I think my parents would kill me.
so I've go this house as a starting point to do some bits of exploring but it's all so spread out that I think going as a holiday is a bit of a waste, it needs to be a long time.
He wasn't married by Elvis, sadly. It was a proper organised wedding, it was to a lunatic though. He then went on to have tow kids with her, leave her to marry someone even more insane, have a kid with her as well then moved to America with none of them :(
I'm going next year slightly less poor.
I still have every intention of hating it. But I'm gonna at least get to see Penn and Teller this time.
All I've ever seen of Vegas looks thoroughly depressing.
It's a spectacle unlike anywhere else, no doubt. But it is a bit boring.
although I'm glad I've been, plus it's a good base for going to see the grand canyon and some of the shopping was pretty good. I also saw sheen easton and gladys knight, and somebody whose name I can't rememnber boxing at the mgm, and also the man who got eaten by a tiger. On the whole however I couldn't wait to get home.
Then it'll be ace.
SOMEWHERE WHERE DiS WORKS AMIRITE?
Just can't think of that much that's there.
Then there's that massive funny eyed bloke wot murdered that English tourist: He looked like something you'd fight at the end of a beat em up.
Wouldn't want to meet him.
Has anyone else here discounted the whole of Australia on a kneejerk, probably entirely false conception, coupled with an irrational fear of meeting someone who's probably locked away anyway?
i've discounted many places in my own personal belief that they are "dusty":
the middle east
Morocco has TRINKETS and REALLYBUSYBITS and that weird "wyeeeeeeee wyeererrrreeeeeeee" flute noise happening everywhere.
Looks significantly groovy to me.
Everyone I know who has gone raves about it, but it hasn't ever appealed to me, even when i had an Aussie boyfriend. I have no idea why.
And the US is about 160th on that list. Nevertheless, nice billabong.
Whatever you think of the people/culture/whatever, much of the scenery is staggeringly beautiful.
But there are many countries in the world with staggeringly beautiful scenery as well as interesting culture etc. I'd certainly be more than happy to go (to the States OR Aus) if someone else was paying, just if it's my money I've got other places I want to visit first.
(as a function of overall beauty and quantity). The photos linked to above are a pretty strong argument (http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4274382#r5760250).
Oprah says so
Fear of being kidnapped and forced to live in the jungle for years.
I've never fancied it, really. But still!
Although THE EX is no longer going to Singapore, so he's totally ruined my holiday. The cheek.
in which case, MERCURY WINNERS CANCEL FAR EAST TOUR.
If you and him got back together, would he be THE EX EX?
BELGIAN PROG ROCK VETERANS CANCEL FAR EAST TOUR.
Casablanca is a big smelly port and Marrakech was just full of people who HATED us. Mainly because it was the week after September 11 and Dubya was on the television all the time basically saying that he was going to bomb all ferrners.
That's probably about it. Although I very much doubt I'll ever go to Australia.
theres a lot of people try to sell you rugs iirc
would consider anywhere else.
the Baltic states
most of the Middle East
you know, I kinda fancy going to Dubai at some place, but not for thirty years or so, it'll be like a desert cyberpunk wonderland by then
