    Where have you been?

    I've noticed that almost anytime someone mentions visiting some specific place there is usually someone else who will post about also being there at some point in the past. Thought it might be interesting to see if you can name someplace that you have been that no one else on the board has. Post where you have been that may fit the criteria and also if you have been to the place someone else has listed. By "place" generally I mean a city or town or possibly a small or uncommonly visited foreign city, not something like "my basement" or "my cousins house in Bogota, Columbia".

    I have three possibilities and I doubt any of them will make it.

    Haifia, Isreal
    Rhodes, Greece
    Trinidad and Tobbago

    Also, Mexico City - I'm sure others have been to this hell-hole though

    Germany- Moln. That was before the wall came down; we had car trouble and the East German Police charged us something like $500 to get us to a town near the border. That was Moln. Then a tow truck from the west side came and got us.

    I once stayed in Taxco, Mexico; a cool, little silver-mining town between Mexico City and Acapulco... All told, I have been to Mexico three times.

    In the Carribean, I spent a week in St. Thomas/St. John's Virgin Islands...Also been to the Bahamas for a week.

    Most of my travels have been U.S. based. In May, I am working in Toronto for a few days (and will spend 7 days in Montreal in November). May will represent my first trip to Canada.

    In June, I am working 10 days in London and Geneva. That will represent my first trip to Europe.

    I would love to go back to the Azores, but unfortunately Uncle Sam's airlines haven't went that direction for me since 2003. There was an outstanding seafood restaraunt there that had some of the best swordfish steak I've ever tasted.

    I've been to Haifa as well, so you don't get that one. I was all over Israel in '93. Anyone else been to a little town called Cambridge, New York? It's in the Catskills, kind of an out of the way little town that looks like something out of a Norman Rockwell painting.

    I've traveled quite a bit. Some of the more exotic places:

    Rotorua, New Zealand
    Tahiti
    Paricutin Volcano, Mexico
    Iguazu Falls, Argentina
    Angel Falls, Venezuela (landed in a chopper on top of it)
    Pompeii Ruins, Italy
    Budapest, Hungary

    Still LOTS of places I would like to see...including in the US.

    Redhook: Been to Morelia (and Patzcuaro, too)
    NH30: Guatemala...yep, been there.

    Re: Where have you been?

    Scarborough, Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay in England are about as exotic as it gets for me.

    I'll throw Blowing Rock, NC out there too, for the sake of the thread.
