I've been to Spain, Menorca, Brussels, Cyprus, New York, Mautitius
I haven't left the US! I have been to all but 7 states and I have been to other parks such as: Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO; Hershey Park in Hershey, PA; Worlds of Fun in Kansas City, MO; Six Flags St. Louis in St. Louis, MO; Disneyland in Anaheim, CA; and Walt Disney World in the obvious location in Lake Buena Vista, FL.
I wish I could travel the world, but that is expensive and I think I'd rather go the EPCOT and travel the world pavillions than pay so much to go to the actual locations.
Florida 4 times, Ibiza 2 times, Spain, ST Lucia, majorca and Tenerife.
Ooooh, let's see....off the top of my head....
Majorca and a lot of the rest of Spain, France (tons of places), Switzerland (a lot), Austria, Germany, Portugal, Goa in India, Morocco, Kenya, Maldives, Canada, Ireland, Bahamas, St Lucia, and in USA, San Fran, LA, Napa, New Orleans, New Jersey, New York, Minneapolis, and of course, WDW!!! :D
Due to my USAF days, Fairbanks, AK, several cities in CA, which led to several visits to Tijuana. But, my favorite and most memorable destination was nearly 3 months in the UK to teach a new computer system to the maintenance staff. Spent the time at RAF Alconbury. It was wonderful driving on the wrong side of the road - driving a 5-speed diesel shifting with your left hand :-)
The instructor I paired up with an I got up each morning and picked a different village to visit each day. As soon as we parked, we asked a local where the best fish-n-chips was located. We'd have lunch and a pint then explore the city before heading back to base for evening instruction.
It was so nice to visit a country and NOT be a tourist. You tend to blend in better and get treated better too! Good times...
That is so very true.Originally Posted by JStrickPhoto, post: 245212
I recall visiting the Pyramids at Giza on one of my numerous trips to Egypt and I was escorted by a guy I knew from the factory where we were doing some work.
While all other foreigners were being hassled left right and centre by locals offering their services as guides or selling cheap touristy items, we passed along totally unhindered which made for a much more pleasant experience. [I was also allowed into some adjacent tombs which had locked gates to prevent access by the public at large thanks to my companion knowing one of the guards.]
Did a few European coach tours when I was at college so have visited Brussels, Luxembourg (loved it!), Lake Lucerne and Lake Lugano in Switzerland (would go back to Switzerland in a heartbeat), Venice x2, Lake Garda, Paris lots of times, Normandy lots of times as I have a good friend who lived there. Gran Canaria, Athens, Poros, The Bahamas, New York, Philadelphia and of course Florida!
