    Default Unlimited travel budget, where do you go first?

    You've got the funds and the time/ability. So where do you visit first?

    The nearest planet with life on it that's not in our solar system

    But assuming we're talking places that we can realistically reach (aka on this planet), probably the amazon rainforest.

    While I am also interested in seeing places like the pyramids in Egypt, the great reef in Australia and the Grand Canyon, those I could always visit later, easier to get to.

    If I'm limited to Earth, then Japan, assuming that the unlimited time and money would let me tour the whole country.

    Right now, assuming my boss I happy for me to get the extra time off: Thailand, because it's in season.

    This year, assuming my boss is NOT happy for me to get the extra time off: Italy, because I intend to this year anyway.

    The place I want to go most, though? Japan. Hoping for 2019. Possibly Florida after that.

    I like how you intend to follow up these nations of such rich, vibrant cultural histories with... Florida. What's drawing you there?

    I'd like to hit all of the continents outside of North America, but for some reason South America has really been stuck in my mind lately. Probably Argentina. My wife's been there already and loved it, and I've heard it's absolutely stunning. Costa Rica would also be on the list in Central America.

    Europe is also a biggy for me. I'd love to hit a lot of countries in a single trip. England, France, and Germany would be some particular high points.

    Oh! And New Zealand, just because my wife also has been there, and the way she describes it makes it sound like it's amazing.

    Friends, climate, relative proximity meaning we can just do one week instead of two, maybe a bit of Disney World while we're at it.

    Neither Sarah nor myself care about Harry Potter so for that (we see loads of HP stuff in Edinburgh regardless because of it being HP's origin). But Universal might be cool. Will all depend on funds!

    I can at least say that JK Rowling seems like a fantastic person from what I've read from her, I just don't care about her characters, particularly the lead character.

    Why do we still let you exists UGhhhhhh


    I do wonder how well Florida markets itself to Ukers. Because you're not the only one form over there who's like "florida is a place i want to go!" They must have a wicked good marketing team there.

    I mean, it's on the coast closest to us and it has sunlight and beaches, and it has things to do. There are possibly other destinations I'd prefer to go if it weren't for the fact that it also has people there that both Sarah and I would love to meet.

    For now, the plan is this year: Australia (done), a UK road trip and some short visits to Italy and Greece. Next year, Japan and Florida and perhaps another weekend or two in Europe. 2020, back to Australia. That's the general idea, but these things will naturally always change over time.

    Yeah that's all legit. I think in the states we're all just super jaded on account of Florida Man and the fact that they have the nicest winters in the country.
