If you could visit any country tomorrow, what country would it be?

Wed Jan 29, 2020 8:08 pm

Everyone has one country they would visit tomorrow if given the chance. I'd love to hear where everyone would go if given a free RT tomorrow.

My first choices in general would be either Ireland or Scotland, but I doubt that either could be best appreciated in the dead of winter as it is now. On the other hand right now is the middle of summer in Australia, so today Australia it is.

But as TSS said, I'd defer my ticket for a few months.

Probably India, or Tahiti/Maldives, or anywhere warm in Asia to get me out of this dark and cold

Places I couldn't physically reach by tomorrow :)

Definitely Canada. I’ve got this thing about Canada lately. I can’t say exactly why that specific country, but maybe it’s the Australian heat and all the rest. Canada has wildfires too, but they get a proper winter with lots of snow. Other than that maybe it’s popular culture or Netflix, or the perception of being far away.

My second choice is New Zealand.

On a calm winter day with blue skies the coastlines and mountains of Ireland and Scotland look amazing ..though granted such days don't appear very often.

I don't doubt you on either count for a second, but I don't think I'm quite ready for "Taps Aff!" any time the temperature goes above freezing while the sun is out.

The Argentinian Spanish accent doesn't sound like any other Spanish accent I've ever heard, and boy is it sexy! You'll find yourself having conversations with the locals in which you have less than no interest just so you can listen to them talk.

Japan.

Actually, I WILL visit Japan tomorrow. I got a free* RT and will go. Will depart today and arrive tomorrow :D

*my company paid for it, but screwed up the schedule, therefore I have more days off than work days there for the next two weeks.

There's a reason it's 30% cheaper in winter. It's a totally different and great experience, but it's really, really cold.

Now that's a reason I can get behind :bigthumbsup:

For me, I'll have to join the crowd in saying French Polynesia - have long dreamed of staying in one of those bungalows over the lagoon that has a glass panel in the floor so you can watch the fish swimming below. Now, if only I can win the lottery or find me a sugar mama

Sure will, but is it safe to travel there. That's the problem. I will not be assured if something does happen. The Dutch foreign office has put Solamia at: do not travel there. So that is the problem. So we'll have to figure out what to do and how to handle it and to mitigate the risk. We want to, but can we in a responsible way is the question.
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

Free RT, leaving tomorrow, all other responsibilities magically disappearing? Mauritius or Seychelles, most likely.

Chile is another possibility, with a short side trip to revisit Ushuaia.

Got back from Saalbach 2 days ago, and would happily return to Austria just as soon as the laundry is done. Would like to try out St. Anton or Kitzbühl next time, and might very well do so next season. Or a return to Maria Alm or Ischgl. Would also love a jaunt to Bad Gastein, just to try something new. So many options, but it'll always be going "home" to Austria :)
