+1 Munich is a great place to visit. If you ever get a chance to go, skip the Hofbrau house and head to the Andechs restaurant. Better beer, and no tourists. It's really close to the Marienplatz. Best glass of beer I have ever had. Ever.

La Maddalena, Italy. Lived there for 3 years, it's a tiny archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea just off the northern tip of Sardinia (Sardegna). Clear emerald water, lots of night life within 5 minutes walk and about 45 minutes from Porto Cervo on the Costa Smeralda. Also 5 minutes from Club Med on a nearby island and a wildlife preserve. Topless beaches full of smoking hot vacationing Italian girls... It's a good spot.

Reykjavik, Iceland. Lived there also for 3 years. (Go Navy, lol) The economy is in shambles right now, but it's a beautiful place to visit during the summer. Snowmobile rides across the glacier, bathing in hotsprings during the winter and tons of nightlife. Something like 75% of the Iceland's population lives in Reykjavik.

Rome, Italy. Obvious choice but hard to argue with. Best to go during late Spring before everyone goes on vacation and it gets unbearably hot. Countless things to do...
Going to Iceland in September. Can't wait!

I've never been, but I have plenty of friends who have. I hear it's fun for a day or two, but in general pretty dirty and overrated. Still, I'd go just to hit a coffee shop or two. :cool-smil

Agreed. I could live in Sevilla.

My favorite place, though, is Tibet, especially the Reting area. I could live there too.

I also like:
Jaipur and Haridwar, India
Kyoto, Japan
Pokhara, Nepal
Hua Hin, Thailand

Yeah I'm thinking it would be a fun place to visit for a day or two, on your way to or back from some place else.

Have to add D.C. to my list too, for obvious reasons, plus you can't beat it for the museums and memorials

I've been...it's a nice city. Lots of places to see include the red light district. Food there is meh. They speak English and are happy to speak to you. The chicks there are hot but not as hot as the Czech chicks. And of course, you can purchase 5 inch blunts for cheap...be sure to pace yourself otherwise you will lost 2 days of your life if you overdo it.

+1, lived there 9 months, but it was great. I definitely enjoy that city.

Austrian and Swiss Alps,
Berchtesgaden, Hitler's hideaway. Fascinating with the history, and scenery
Vancouver, only got to spend a day, but was beautiful.

Nearly every drive across the US is an also ran. I love driving across the United States and seeing the country flow by. Nowadays alot looks the same, but is still awesome. One Christmas I was driving out from Md to Colorado Christmas eve, and in a span of 36 hours, I had driven through, MD, PA, WV, OH, Indiana,Illinois, Missouri, Kansas (Ugh) and Colo, AND Stopped at a WalMart in each state picking up Christmas presents along the way LOL.

September is a good time to visit. The cold and hardcore wind won't be in full swing yet. I assume you're going to Reykjavik... how long are you staying for?

Re: Favorite Places You Have Visited

I would say Thailand was my favorite place to visit. Lots to see, very inexpensive, and lots of underground kick boxing going on. Great food, lovely ladies, and the beaches are gorgeous. Close second would be Singapore. Not so much because it's a party town, but everything is so damn clean and neat there. So obviously when you get hammered there, you feel like you're getting away with something.

The US...hmmm, I would say New York has to be funnest (is that a word) city behind Vegas. But I'll take NY over Vegas simply because it's fun in a normal kind a way. Vegas is fun on steroids. Oh, New Orleans is in a class by itself really. Just good old fun 24/7.

Key West by far. It's kind of like a super laid-back Vegas.

I'm actually only going for a weekend, next time I'll go longer. I'm really hoping I see the Aurora Borealis. Always been a wish of mine to see that, and if I get to share that moment with my wife...I might just cry double rainbow style
