Where to next?

I love travelling – the chance to experience different cultures and meet different nationalities and to see the world in a more informed and enlightened way. I’ve been very fortunate and so far managed to visit 52 countries all around the world. You can read about some of my travels here.
But I always have lots of other places in my mind for future visits. This weekend, my wife and I tentatively planned our travelling for the next three years:
Easter 2009 – return trip to Prague to see our ‘second family’
Autumn 2009 – holiday in Iran in the year of the 30th anniversary of the Islamic revolution
Easter 2010 – return trip to China with our ‘Chinese family’ in Oxford
Autumn 2010 – holiday in Kiev, Ukraine
Sometime in 2011 – the BIG ONE: a trip to Australia and New Zealand to mark our 30 years together
Let’s see how much of this actually happens ….

    Blimey Roger! How many “families” do you have?
    Plus, all this going away, didn’t you know the latest thing is the Staycation, where you stay in your home nation? Don’t forget we have England, Scotland and Wales – plus Ireland if you feel like a hop on the ferry 😉 So much choice of places in which to have your staycation…!

    I’ve recently been contacted by an Iranian who has been visiting my site – so, if we go to Iran, I hope that I can visit him and learn more about the country.

    they say travel broadens the mind what do you think and why?

  • Roger Darlington

    I agree, teepee. I think that one learns a lot about other places and other cultures and one looks at one’s own place and culture differently.
