37 Where Next Wednesday: Week One

Yep, that's right....after being stateside for only two months we have the travel itch again. It's much akin to Dexter's dark passenger, but obviously much less violent. We recently had begun thinking about where we want to travel next when we got a crazy idea...why don't we let our blog readers decide? They love to travel too, they're from all over the world....who better to make the decision than them?

So here is how this is going to work. We are going to open the floor to suggestions for four weeks with a post every Wednesday. Just post your suggestion(s) in the comments...all we are looking for is a basic description like Beijing, Machu Picchu, Athens, etc. Feel free to second or third someone else's suggestion and make as many suggestions as you like. We will keep a running tally in the posts and after four weeks, the five places with the most suggestions will move on to the next stage.

At that point each Wednesday we will do a feature on one of the top five places. This is where you can make your case for or against each place and offer suggestions for what to do while we are there.

After the fifth feature we will open up a poll and let you, our readers, decide where we are traveling to next!! It's that simple. Once the destination is selected we will keep you updated on our trip planning and offer up some more polls to help us decide what to do while we are there.

So start the suggestions flowing....we are excited to throw caution into the wind with no idea where we will end up next!

  16. Moscow...! Go to Moscow and take the train to St. Petersburg. And then go to the Hermitage Museum.

    Oh ... if only.

    What a wonderful life you have. And what a fun blog!

  19. Greece- Athens, Santorini and Mykonos..love the beauty, culture, history and the people.
    Lucerne Switzerland-- thats beautifule too!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I can't do without suggesting you to visit Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia, and all Bolivia, of course.

    ReplyDelete
  21. So Aron and I discussed this over lunch yesterday and came up with China. The visa process was too much to handle during the round-the-world trip... maybe better done on its own? I also noticed that you have a few more places in Italy to see--Rome and Venice, notably. But my vote is China!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Peru: Lima, Lake Titicaca-Puno.

    ReplyDelete
  23. My personal goal is to see all 7 continents, see all 4 oceans before I die... In that vein- I vote for Antarctica -take a cruise there from S America.
    Otherwise, I'd vote Croatia. It's one of the most beautiful if not THE most beautiful place I've been.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Antarctica - fabulous; add the Falklands and S Georgia and you'll have a one of a kind voyage, but you need to go on a ship that offers landings ... could be a budget buster, but oh so worth it :-)

    ReplyDelete
  25. The Venice Italy is a perfect place to go for a destination this year. The List of visitors is increasing this year in Venice. It has classic beauty of Rome and extremely amazing city to visit.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've always wanted to go to Switzerland...I would go there..you've never been!

    ReplyDelete
  27. - Ticino (southern Switzerland)
    - Auvergne (France)
    - Armenia

    ReplyDelete
  28. The Transiberian railway!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Definitely some good suggestions - Peru's always good - as is Bolivia. If I may suggest - the no. 1 experience I've personally had on my travels would have to be the Gorillas in Rwanda so that's my main recomendation (throw in Uganda and you've got a great little trip).

    ReplyDelete
  30. Guatemala: Tikal, Chichicastenango, Lake Atitlan...

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ye olde worlde Yemen (I have just returned and it is like stepping back in time - fabulous), failing that Mauritania.

    Both are wonderful places with warm and kind people.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Papua New Guinea

    ReplyDelete
  33. Belize. Reef to jungle to Mayan ruins can be experienced in less than a week.
