Dream Adventure

What is your dream adventure? if there is one place you would love to visit and explore, where is it and why?


mine is Anartica. i have been many places but i desire to see the penguins there. not to mention i plan on being the first person to discover the Evil Santa's base of operations.

Never heard of "Anartica" but visiting Antarctica would be cool in more ways than one. (Raven member, Laird, was there very recently.)

A few things on my life's "to do" list have already been crossed off but there are still some MAJOR items left:

1) My MAIN, dream-adventure vacation is visiting the battlefields of the 1879 Anglo-Zulu War in present-day South Africa. (I hesitate on this because the TOP tour guide, David Rattray, was tragically murdered by bandits and he was the one who I wanted as a guide.)

2) Traverse the Khyber pass between present-day Pakistan and Afghanistan. (Which became a pipe-dream after Sept. 11th, 2001.)

3) Machu Picchu. 'Nuff said.

4) The Cisterns of Istanbul! This is within my grasp because I have a friend who lives in Istanbul part-time. She keeps inviting me to come but there are always conflicts in our schedules!

After doing those 4 things, I could die a happy man...

Space travel. Travel throughout the galaxy to other galaxies.

Or I could just start with Mars.

runnerup: The depths of the oceans.

Thanks, JRJENNINGS. As for the spelling, I'm just giving you a hard time because that's what I do. Antarctica would be great (as well as Iceland since I like volcanoes). Hope you make it to the South Pole!

I would like to visit Ireland.

Because it doesn't always have to be snakes.
