I would like to explore the cities of Europe more, especially Prague, Budapest, Warsaw, St. Petersburg, Stockholm, Berlin and the like. The architecture there is stunning. Also all of Spain, Portugal and more of Italy, Belgium and France, Europe wise. I go to Scotland fairly often as I live fairly near, and I can assure you that if cold is your thing, then it is the place to go :p.

Further afield I'd love to visit NZ, Cuba and Costa Rica especially. But I am pretty sure I am never going to get round to those, maybe just one if I am lucky. Galapagos too. Attenborough convinced me.


Oi! :p

Sorry, I love Scotland though. Just a shock in August getting there with a crazy cold wind from the north sea :p

Here on the Fife Riviera we call that a late/light summer breeze :D If you want cold, come in January with a nice Northerly blasting down from goodness knows where :sad:

If I had to pick one place I've been to visit one last time it would be the Greek Island of Samothraki. It's in the Northern Agean sea and I've spent 4 weeks there in the past. It's far from your typical Greek Island, in fact it's completely different as it is a place that has all year round flowing rivers. It's a strange place with a clouded history and dark past. I've cycled around it as much as is possible and explored it's interior. A place where people live freely by the rivers for summer, it's very unique. I can't recommend it enough a very special part of the world, only shame I don't know how to upload my photos of it.

I like this place! Share us, please, where we can find it?

And I've planned my Christmas vacation already. I'm going to see a real winter in Russia! A lot of snow and Mulled wine. I'm a bit scared to flighting there so I've booked the tickets in Lufthansa in iflyfirstclass.com, I suppose that is the airlines with the higher safety.
But I didn't book the hotel and didn't choose the city. Does anyone know is it safe in Russia now? And what I should choose Moscow or Saint-Petersburg?

I'd say Saint Petersburg, from what friends have told me. Moscow is very different, it depends on what you want to see really.

And Russia is very safe
