  1. London England. I never tire of it. And as Samuel Johnson said:“Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.”

      1. I’ve been visiting London since I was 4 years old and I lived there in my 20’s and now our son lives there so we go over twice a year. Even now I still find parts of the city I have not explored and things I have not seen. I love your questions and reading the various answers! Thanks for posting them.

    1. Far too expensive, far too unfriendly and isolating, far too overcrowded these days, dangerous in many parts. eating out very bad to mediocre unless one has bags of money to afford the best restaurants. Many homeless people sleeping rough. Mind you it wasn’t like this when I came to London several decades ago, it was a nice place then. Not now anymore and it’s getting worse by the day. Many people are sick and tired of it so when you are tired of London you are tired of life doesn’t apply anymore at least not for many.

      1. Honestly, it is so gorgeous, I would just like to see a sunset there. But you can also eat authentic Greek food, head to the beach, go to a winery, ride a donkey, go hiking, snorkel…the list goes on and on!

      1. It is also possible that we are living during a period of time when this would have happened at any rate and humans are contributing a small part to it. I believe nature will end up selecting out humans regardless

  2. Ocracoke is my happy place, but I think I’d want to visit Glacier National Park again, before there are no more glaciers there to see. Of course, Ocracoke is in peril from the melting of North Atlantic glaciers and ice caps too, being only 2-4 feet above sea level.
    Oh wait! The Trumpster Fire and other ostrich…I mean politicians keep telling us global warming isn’t real. Whew! I was worried for a sec. 😏

      1. The Carolinas are where o spent a large portion of my youth, and still frequent as much as possible, from Pisgah to Ocracoke. My wife is from Elkin, my dad moved to Charleston when I was 7 and to Spartanburg when I was about 11. Spent lots of time in Saluda, Lake Lure, Brevard, Black Mountain. I’m a Kentuckian by birth, and a Carolinian at heart.

      2. Charlotte is great. We used to go to Charlotte a lot from Spartanburg. Back in those days, Spartanburg was a fraction of the size it is now, so Charlotte or Atlanta were the “big cities” nearest. Now, we stop for the night in Charlotte for a night during every trip Down East.

      3. Got that right. Even more so from the 70’s and 80’s. It and Greenville are nearly one now. BMW moving in there changed the whole region it seems. All the time I spent there made a Clemson fan when I was young too. But now that we’re conference mates, and have gotten Clemsoned x3 since, I can’t stand them. While I love the Carolinas, I’ll always be a Cardinal.

      1. Definitely! You got me thinking maybe I should start saving and return even if it’s just for a visit. Keep questions coming lol 👌 ❤

  3. All I need is a few squares metres in a quiet place where I can do what I want to do and where I’m now it’s fine. I’m not keen on travelling. I think that many people travel in order to escape the reality. Everyone that I know that comes back from a vacation seems always depressed to me. Or they get the travelling bug that is a very expensive syndrome to maintain.

  4. Having just come back from a wonderful four days in Key West, I would almost say Key West. I would, however, like to take my youngest daughter to Europe (especially Italy) to learn about her heritage.
