Just felt like creating this so people here on MAL can share various places they've travelled, maybe their favourites or places they would recommend and so on.

I myself live in Australia and the various places I've been to are: USA (also Hawaii), Fiji, Bali, Guam, Hong Kong and of course places around Australia.

It's hard to decide a favourite because they all had positives and negatives. Though it would probably be the US, it has the most sentimental value as it was my first overseas trip and it's also my longest holiday to date (7 weeks).

My most recent trip was Guam & Hong Kong over the Christmas/New Years period. Guam was really nice and relaxing, and I just really enjoyed Hong Kong, It's probably my favourite city.

So guys, have fun and share and discuss your travels. ^u^

I traveled to New Brunswick, New Jersey and people said I represented hatred.
"If you died, would anyone care? Would they really care? Maybe, they'd cry for a day. But, let's be honest no one would give a shit. They wouldn't. The few people that would feel obligated to go to your funeral would probably be annoyed and leave as early as possible. That's who you are. That's what you are. You are nothing to anyone. To everyone."

Taiwan, Japan, Thailand. Of course, this was just the airport, but you could still get a feel of what was going on, spending like 5 hours waiting for my next flight.

I've been to South Korea a couple times as a child and have pleasant memories of my time there. It was a more rural setting with very friendly people, a few stray dogs and large insects from what I immediately recall.

I'll be heading across the US to live in Los Angeles for some time within this week. It's an experience I greatly anticipate as it's completely different from my current environment.

Yeah fair enough, it is a long way, although Australia is a long way from pretty much everything so that's a bit of a shame for travelling and plane trips are always long and painful.

I would like to visit Turkey one day, maybe for ANZAC Day and to go to Gallipoli would be nice. And then also on the trip travelling across Turkey doing various things.

yeah i heard that anzac day is really awesome and emotional. i visited the place its pretty nice but i think it would be really different on anzac day. you would see great hospitality. turkey has really interesting places to visit. specially capadoccia. i cant recomend that enough.
yeah australia is pretty far away from everything. thats a little hard for you. i like turkey in that sense its close to both europe and asia. you should just take a month break and visit multiple countries. thats what i wanna do when i visit south america oneday

I'm too poor and young to travel at the moment. Next year, I do plan to travel a bit for a month or two with my friends though.

I just walk around my town and Melbourne in Australia. It's actually quite interesting to find all the nooks and crannies of the cities and meet new people.

I've been to more than 30 countries though I visited only touristy spots. So I want to visit more local areas where I can experience its culture if I could visit some of them.

My favorite is Hungary,Budapest. It is peaceful and comfortable to enjoy because there are fewer tourists comparing major cities like NY,London,Paris,Beijin.

I haven't visited Africa area, South America area, middle east area and want to visit some of them in the future.

Good thing to travel abroad is you can see your country from diffferent point of view.
As I'm Japanese, I want to recommend you to come to Japan, Tokyo. I'm not sure that you would enjoy or not but you could find many thing that your country doesnt have.

Woah! So are you actually Japanese or did you move there because if you are I've never met any Japanese people on MAL before?

Canada, the UK, and the Netherlands. All were great, but they were a while ago and I haven't visited any other countries since.

However, I have been to 48 states, minus Oregon and Alaska.

I love traveling! My parents are big on it as well, so I go on at least one trip each year. I've been to the US, Mexico, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, the UK, France, Germany, Austria, Spain, Italy, China, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, and Malaysia.

My favourite countries I've traveled to are Italy and Japan.

Rome and Florence are both fantastic. They both have so much history and it's good that the government and people are making an effort to preserve it (the same can't be said about my country of origin, China). Rome is especially interesting because you can see architecture from all the different eras the city has been through - Ancient Rome, the Renaissance, Baroque, and the Modern era - in close proximity. Venice was a bit too crowded and touristy for my liking, but it's a worthwhile visit regardless because of how unique it is.

As for Japan, I'm going to have to say I enjoy Kyoto more than Tokyo. I tend to love big cities, but Tokyo just had so much going on that it was almost overwhelming. Every corner of Kyoto is rich with history - and as a bonus, the city escaped largely unscathed from WWII because of its cultural significance, so everything you see is basically original (assuming it didn't get burned down by a fire, which tends to happen a lot in Japan because wooden buildings). I'm heading back this summer again (for the third time), but this time for much longer than before. Can't wait to go to a hot spring. :3

Next on my list are South Korea, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. Gotta go before I finish school and start working...

Me, I've went to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE (All of the choices behind I've went multiple times), Turkey, Egypt and Malaysia. That's probably it, I like Turkey the most though. Good food, cold climate (Finally!) I also saw my first snow which was the best experience ever.

"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. He will put some things behind, will pass an invisible boundary; In proportion as he simplifies his life, the laws of the universe will appear less complex, and solitude will not be solitude, nor poverty poverty, nor weakness weakness." - Henry David Thoreau

I went to Vienna last winter break, I would recommend you to go check MuseumsQuartier, its an amazing place if you are into art.

Also if you want to taste famous Vienna schnitzel, Figlmueller is the best. But be carefull because before going to Figlmueller, you may want to reserve a table or you'll wait like 2 hours to eat.

Is it common for European people to visit other euro countries as school trip?

Hope you will enjoy Japan trip. Which part of Japan and how long are you going to visit ?

Most schools do a end-of-high-school trip around europe: for instance we end to germany, holland and belgium. Many people study french in school as well so those people also go to france sometime in their high school lives, though I've never really studied france and have been there with family alone (and the other places I've mentioned). Of course, now in uni we have Erasmus, which is an exchange program where you study at another european city. For instance, a friend of mine is going to italy so I'll be visiting here there. I'll be studying abroad next year, though I still don't know where.

I'm going to japan for two weeks end of july/beginning of august. I'll be staying in Tokyo for a week, mainly because you can do a lot of daytrips (like Nikko, Mt Fuji). And of course, Akihabara is a must! Then Kyoto for 4 nights (I'm especially fascinated by Kyoto), Hiroshima for a night, especially to see Miyajima, and Takayama for two nights, where I'll be staying at a ryokan and be able to enjoy an onsen and the sleep in futons! There are still so many things I want to see though, that I'm having trouble making a proper itinerary, hehe.

I live in the US, but I've been to several states so I'm not sure if they necessarily count? But, they include: New York, Texas, Georgia, Maryland, Washington, D.C, Chicago, Delaware, New Jersey, Florida, Wyoming, and Massachusetts.

Outside of the country, I've only been to Puerto Rico (*?), Cuba, Peru and the Philippines (<---it was awesome).

Also Suzhou and Hangzhou were not bad
Oh and nanlin national park
And shanghai, changchun
OK I might as well say the whole of China lol

Apart from that I think it's possible to find beautiful locations near where you are wherever you are in the world, you don't really need to travel that far
