Q1 via toniwonitravels: If money was no object, where would your ‘once in a lifetime’ trip take you?

  • toffeebugs: Middle East. now travellers have been on that region even in Iran

  • freakoutoftown: For my age group, Prague. It used to sound so exotic. Now people go there like its the Jersey Shore

Q4 via mobilelawyer: If you could only travel to one continent from here to the end of (your) time, which one would you choose & why? 

  • kelaussie29: Asia – after 15 years exploring it from Iran and Pakistan, to India and SE Asia, it never fails to impress or amaze
  • elatlboy: Europe. So many countries, cultures So much history. Great food
  • Lozula: Africa, without a doubt. History, wildlife, landscapes, it’s got everything
  • BudgetTraveller: South America appeals to me ever since I saw Motorcycle Diaries

  • latinAbroad: Asia – I haven’t seen any of it yet. Plus, it includes the Indian subcontinent. DOUBLE WIN
  • HomeExchangecom: Haven’t been to enough places to answer this! But if I had to pick it’d be Australia because you have New Zealand too
