You can travel to the furthest reaches on earth, but won't find anywhere as perfect as Cornwall.

My friends visited Foz do Iguaçu last year, the city where is located the brazilian part of Iguacu Falls and Itaipu hydroelectric plant, a travel I really regret I missed and one day I wish I have a new opportunity to go.

Desperately want to go to New York some point in the near future. Also Prague and Reykjavik.

Oh and Margate.

I wouldn't particularly rate Reykjavik or Iceland as a whole. Yeh, it's an amazing country in terms of scenery can't really stay there longer than 2 days as you've seen everything already. Reykjavik is a nice city and all but there are many nicer cities to go to beforehand in my view.

Russia and Japan. Will probably visit Korea if I'm in the area too but Tokyo looks crazy.

The small Oceania countries, they look simply stunning...googled thanks to Sporcle. Some way off yet though, imagine they'll be very expensive.

Also got a curiosity for the 'stan' former soviet countries. Not sure why, just have.

No particular sites I'm massively desperate to see, more bothered about the actual countries and different cultures themselves. Got one of those scratch maps and am trying to do at least one new country every year...hope to do them all before I die but not sure how possible that is :lol:

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.
Did a lot of places we wanted to do before we had our daughter. Next on the list for a city break was Reykjavik for the Northern Lights and then Tokyo for the next longer haul, probably stopping in Cairo en route.

Would love to do Vegas, and another plan of ours was to drive across the states doing some of those mad attractions like the world's largest ball of string etc.

Will probably do Singapore next year because we've got family there.

Hope to go to County Sligo in Ireland this Easter, fancy visiting the Scottish islands with a mate given the chance too. Then visit my brother in Leipzig and a pal who's moved to Brighton.

I want to complete europe now. Done 55% of it, closest two countries left are Portugal (easy enough) and Norway (mate was talking about doing it last night). Then the next closest, I think, is somewhere like Belarus/Iceland...

Going to Thailand and Cambodia in May which ticks off a big one in the list.

Still loads of Europe I want to see before I do much venturing outside the continent; Scandinavia, Iceland, Estonia, Romania, Croatia, Russia...

New York looks like a cool city but i've got pretty much zero interest in visiting the US, same goes for Australia.

I planned an escape to Cambodia a year or so back. Was just going to pack a bag and leave. Liver there for as long as possible. The only stumbling block was that I needed a passport and mine had expired. Still plan to go, just for a 2 week holiday rather than becoming a vagabond.

We're just going for 15-16 days, I say we're going to Thailand but we're literally just flying to and from Bangkok and spending a couple of nights there either side of Cambodia. Going to Phnom Penh, Kampot, Sihanoukville and Siem Reap (Ankgor Wat), bit of rush job, spending a couple of days in each place but i'd like to see as much of it as possible.

Still yet to book the Bangkok - Phnom Penh & Sihanoukville - Siem Reap flights but they're only about £110 combined.

A friend of mine did that. Left the UK and went to live in Cambodia. He has been there a few years now.

Bought his TV off him when he left for £100. Result.

Considering there are 196 countries in the world, and probably more to come in future, I'd say you need to up the pace a little.

That's like playing Pokemon to catch all 151 and saying that Caterpie doesn't matter because it's just filler!
