Where would you go if you could?

Where would you go if you could?
Friendly travel question. I think everyone knows if you could have asked me 30 or 40 years ago, if I would have ever visited Australia, I would have called you crazy. The one part of this planet I always wanted to visit was the southern Hemisphere, and finally did. 

But which I doubt I ever will, even today, I would love to visit Pompeii and the volcano Mt Vesuvius. Not for the weather, but for the volcano and ruins. 

I hate cold weather, I love tropical settings. And I wish I had been 20 or so years old, when I finally visited Keppel Island in Australia that I finally did a few years ago. It was clear waters and pristine beach, and bars with tropical drinks. The type of place for a late teen, early college student. But no, when I finally visited it, I was in my early 50s. 

I don't think it is just me. I think there are parts of the world everyone looks at, as the grass being greener, cold climate or warm, but we all think, "What if I could live/visit here"?

I love Tokyo, mainly because they have writing which looks like art AND IS ART, and I love their accent, and that they are neat and clean in everything they do. And they talk in such polite tones. If you have never visited "Thunder Gate", in Tokyo, you are missing something.

I love Europe, meaning France, and Luxemburg and Switzerland for different reasons. I basically got to hear different languages and ate different food as a kid. 

Where would you go today, if you had the time and money?

Another planet.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

In the past travel was fun but today everything is just full of people or trash or pollution

I mean, how fun is it to go to the National Parks these days?

Back in time, break up ABBA before they ever exist. Then grab a bagel.

Ireland, Egypt, Italy, Scotland, Jordan, Mexico, Peru, and England (again, though this time as a tourist).

Other than Egypt, I've not spent much time in Africa. There's a lot there than sounds interesting.

As may be obvious, my choices are for touring archaeological sites.

I fancy myself to be reasonably well travelled, but I'm always more interested in people than ruins. My missus says I'm on a lifelong search to find more  people who can stand me.
