I have to agree with you. I have never been in the northern hemisphere. I am planning a trip to Ireland and Scotland in the near future.

Believe it or not, I really want to visit the United States. We are so inundated with TV, movies etc, I want to find out if it is really like that. I'm sure the soapies are not the best introduction to the way people really live. Of course, I do know it's big and very varied. I've read a lot of history and would love to visit some of the sites of the Civil War etc. Also I want to go into a supermarket and look at the shelves! And visit a coffee shop - I hear you have 100 or more kinds of coffee you can order? I've visited London's West End, but what's Broadway like? I want to visit the Air and Space Museum. Disney World would be nice, but I doubt I could take the queues. Do Americans really eat Danish pastries for breakfast? What are Americans like in their own country? I've met American tourists here and overseas and they tend to be unmistakable. I'm told American chocolate is awful. My one taste was, but that was an Easter bunny. Guess the best chocolate isn't used for that! So many questions!

There are so many places I'd like to visit that I simply can not label just one as my "dream trip". I would like to visit South Africa, Philippines, Ireland and way too many places to name. I guess I'd enjoy the company of a friend, some good food and adventure. I've always wanted to go fishing so that would definitely have to be something I do. I'm also fond of camping.

I would love to spend a month at a beach house. I know nothing about geography so any beach house would do. I would love to be able to just watch the ocean, go for boat rides and swim. I have never been able to see the ocean wildlife up close so I would love that too of course.

I'd like to visit a place where the Borealis could be seen and enjoyed. It always fascinates me. Also, i'd like to go to South Korea and its Jeju Island. Kdrama wave is so intense here in the Philippines.

I have so many, but the trip I've been thinking about most recently is going with my husband to Ireland. I would love to spend a couple of weeks driving the entirety of Ireland. I would prefer to overlook the more touristy spots and focus on the hidden gems that only the locals know. Spend time relaxing in a pub and immersing myself in the culture and language. I would definitely spend a little extra time in County Antrim, as that is where my family derives from.

I would love to be able to travel by land across Europe, making stops at key cities and feasting my eyes on old castles, churches and ruins. I would also be nice to experience some of the country life along the way.

Ahhh a dream trip! Quite honestly, I kind of just went on mine the first week of October. Take away majority of the people and the bigger city feels and it was HEAVEN. My boyfriend and I drove to Boston to check out the Boston Public Library and all the many quaint, independent bookstores (eeeek!) I loved it! We spent the days in and out of these many charming stores filled with books and our evenings eating seafood and reading. We're both introverts so it was perfect :)

My Dream Trip is to Visit Malaysia one more time. I've been there three times. But the next trip is I want to do it with my Ten (10) entrepreneurial students because I want to show them how inspiring the heights and the design of good looking PETRONAS Building with two (2) beautiful towers connected with bridge. Every time I saw the two towers it reminds me of my Dreams to be achieved.

My dream trip is to Iceland, where I will camp under the night sky and witness the amazing aurora lights.
