Been all over the US for work (NYC, Philly, Charlotte, Raleigh, Atlanta, Chicago, LA, San Francisco, Honolulu, KC, St Louis, Tulsa, Birmingham, Miami, Montana, New Orleans, Denver, Nashville). Outside the US, been to Denmark, Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, the UK, Morocco, Thailand, and BVIs.

Was supposed to do the Newport (RI) to Bermuda Race this year but it was cancelled due to COVID. Next stop Tulum, Mexico in Oct and the Maldives in January for vacation. Want to do more exploring in the Asian Pacific; Japan would be awesome.

Not many people have that one on their list. Any interesting stories to tell?

It was hella cold... Like -40* F cold. The moisture from my nose was freezing on my face and mask lol. It also took forever to get there underwater hahaha.

Never been out of the U.S. (flying over Canada doesn't count). I did live in Alaska for 7 years...that was sort of like another country. :p

Hope that in half a year I will also be able to share my pics here from the trip to Barcelona. Due to different restrictions it was the 3rd time I had cancelled my trip and that is disappointing :(
P.S. The pictures from your trips are really great! :cool:
Barcelona is a great, very walkable city. La Rambla is a great street / boulevard. Start at the waterfront, and walk away from the water until the prices in the open air restaurants decline to a reasonable level. The further you walk, the prices go down and the quality goes up!

Great thread.

I have seen a good portion of the eastern seaboard by car. We have done Ireland and the Netherlands. Both incredible trips. Belgium is next on the list and we want to do about 10 days in Germany. I would love to do Prague and Japan one day as well. I wish I had traveled more when I was younger.

Prague is nice, but I prefer Budapest and Krakow (cities with a similar vibe). Go to Vienna to see the neat-freak Austrians. Japan is on my bucket list, maybe Egypt in 2023.
