    Favorite place of all time?

    What is everyone's favorite place they've ever been to, whether it be US or abroad and why do you like that place so much?? Is it because of the people, culture, scenery (both people and environment), experiences with another person, etc.? I'm a person that loves to travel and would take personal experiences over materials any day. I like to learn about other cultures, as it seems to give me an appreciation for what I have back home. Traveling is definitely an addiction.

    It's a tough decision, but I'd have to go with Scotland for the scenery/people. The highlands were pretty cool and hiking around Edinburgh gave me an appreciation for their country. My friends that went all had a blast and it'd be a country we'd probably go back to.

    My least favorite would have been South Dakota to the black hills as a kid. I ended up getting sick outside of Perkins and threw up everywhere.

    Can't say I've been a ton of places, but Key West in February was just awesome. In the middle of a crappy winter, sunny and 80, low of 70 every day we were there.

    For a learning experience, it has to be Pompeii and Herculaneum. It's a trip back to 79 AD. These old cities are stunningly fascinating, and you will learn many truths about mankind, things you never, ever realized before. While you're there, you must also visit the museum where many "finds" from the digs are displayed in Naples. Extraordinary.

    That sounds awesome and would be high on my list of places to see.

    So they still have "your mom" jokes in middle school? They must let anyone sign up for CF.

    Re: Favorite place of all time?

    Favorite place overall- Railay Bay, Thailand, amazing scenery, friendly locals, great food

    Other great places I've been:
    Krakow, Poland- great food, good partying, beautiful architecture, lots of hot chicks.
    Hong Kong- it's like a cleaner, nicer, cheaper and more scenic NYC
    Amsterdam- hookers, weed, booze. It's a carnival of sin, like what Vegas thinks it is.
    Rome, Paris, Budapest- all have excellent history, architecture, food, scenery
    Cusco, Peru- amazing scenery and history, friendly people, good food and booze.
    New Orleans- awesome food, great party city
    San Francisco- great city and great jumping off point for Yosemite, Redwoods, desert, ocean, Napa.

    Worst places:
    Nebraska as a whole, I did like the SAC air museum though
    Columbus, OH- it's a soulless generic borefest full of chain restaurants, lame OSU tards and nothing of interest to do.
    Houston, TX- it's a smelly dump and the locals are mostly garbage too which explains the smell

    I loved Ireland in general and Galway in particular. However I also love my family farm down here in South-central Iowa too.

    Re: Favorite place of all time?

    Bavarian alps in Germany. Stumbled into a hostel and spent the night in Füssen drinking at biergartens and riding bikes around the area. Rode up to the Neuschwanstein castle the next day. Swam in the spring fed lake near the castles.

    Just beautiful around there.
