Never traveled outside the USA, but I've long wanted to visit Ukraine. We've had many visitors from there, be nice to see what we're missing.

I like to travel, besides I have a lot of business trips. Every year I visit approximately 10 new countries. So, traveling is a big part of my life.

Yes, business and leisure.

I have no favorite country; I like tropical islands a lot (like in the Caribbean, South Pacific etc.)

I love visiting different places. The actual traveling, especially flying, can be a horrid experience (at least in the US)

My wife and I recently spent a long weekend in Colorado, to celebrate my birth-mom's 80th birthday. We gathered at my sister's place in Gunnison. Mom came up from Santa Fe (another place I love to visit) and my brother came down from Seattle. It's gorgeous up there in the mountains. The flying to/from Denver was rubbish. The 4+ hour drive between Denver and Gunnison wasn't too bad considering the views. It was a fantastic weekend.

I've been out of the country only once. We did our 25th anniversary in a small eco-tourist casita up on the side of a mountain on the Pacific coast of Mexico. The town it was in had no roads to it, so you had to reach the place via an open boat ride along the coast from PV south to the little town. It was a big spend for us, but it was a wonderful, quiet, relaxing week.

My wife traveled Europe with a choir group back in college, and I'm quietly jealous of her for that. There are too many countries I'd love to visit, to choose just one. Just throw a dart at a map, and you'll probably hit one.

I always ask this when New Mexico comes up.

Is it really the land of enchantment?

I love road trips in the US. There is so much to see, so many great cities, national parks, landscapes.

Even though I travel internationally a lot, and enjoy other countries, you can keep yourself busy for a long time just traveling within the continental US.
The only thing you won’t get is very different cultures, languages and food.

Yeah, I suppose it is, in a way.

I like New Mexico quite a lot. It’s beautiful in a rough sort of way, especially the high desert. I’ve never seen a more gorgeous sunset than what I see in NM (ymmv, of course) It’s a hell of a lot more enchanting than Indiana, anyway.

I’ve never been, but so far, everyone has answered “yes”.

Travel is great. If it just didn't take time and money. Which everyone I know is short of.

I've traveled to places I never expected to go, and not been to places I always wanted to go. It is not a zero sum experience.

I think everyone in relatively wealthy countries should visit very poor countries for more than just a few hours. Visiting such places makes one appreciate the plenty one has.

Yes. I can’t even believe there are non-poor first-world adults who haven’t been out of their own country—wowzers. The US is certainly great to visit—much variety. My personal fav spots outside of North America have been Italy, Spain, Iceland, Azores, Bali and St Vincent & the Grenadines.

I think in europe it is easier to visit other countries for cheap. In US, for same distance as France to Spain you just are travelling state to state. I've driven across the country a few times. 38 states? I've been to Canada many times since it doesn't require a flight. Never been to Mexico. I've been to England, France, Germany, Switzerland (a tour), Bermuda, Caymans, and New Zealand.

For our honeymoon we went to Hawaii and Fiji. That was amazing.

I love traveling. In fact, I'm outside right now "traveling." Like everything except the delays and flights (paranoid will crash). Favorite place is Hong Kong. Great food.
