So anyway, looks like a POTN migration safari from London, through the cultural highlights of Europe, down into Asia and then across to Aussie/NZ is on the cards. Still no interest in the US. Antartica seems to be on an upwards trajectory and now head and head with Africa.

South America fo' sho'.

I'm surprised it hasn't gotten more votes considering it has the Amazon, Patagonia, Andes, and Brazilian women.

Still relatively inexpensive too.

I'm surprised by all the Europe choices, it's certainly nice, but...well, I can't quite but it into words, I'm just surprised. Eloquent, no?

Mainly US folks ... just like the forum itself. Easy to fly to, similar enough cultures these days, often only get short holidays, English is commonly spoken, etc. Interesting the Europeans aren't lookin' at going the opposite way.

Yeah, it's definitely an "easy" destination and I understand that many Americans(myself included) trace their roots back that way, but I guess for me your quote I highlited cuts both ways. I've been living in France for a few months and am a bit depressed by all the McDonalds and such over here.

I just thought that people would choose something a little more exotic for that special trip, but I guess "exotic" is relative. I do love me some Europe though!!!

I agree ... when travelling I have mainly met Aussies/NZ's, Far Easterner's and Europeans. Rare you meet Americans in the more exotic places. We did meet a US couple in Chobe, Botswana and there are definate exceptions to the 'rule' that says US folks don't leave their own country.

Yeah, that was probably wot I meant but I was being a good boy :-) I would like to go visit the US. It has some good spots. Am thinking of heading to NYC again for a short break soon and pick up some gears there. It just doesn't excite me much compared to other places. Also home of some very leading edge nutters and psycho's and a bit dangerous! Puts me off.

Sure ... pullin' yer plonkers innit ;-)a Please realise that making fun of the French, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, Germans, Italians and American's is a deeply English tradition based on our delusion of superiority.

Why do the American's deserve an apostrophe and the Germans and Italians don't?:D

Because condyk holds us in such low esteem, he won't even punctuate us properly.

I'm not feeling the love.
