ABD wishlist

So I'm lying in bed, bored, wondering what everybody's wish lists are? Tell me your top 3 itineraries that you would like/still like to take (of the ones being offered), if money, length of trip, dates of trip, were of no issue.

Well, for me, part of the issue is also the length of the flight. I haven't worked myself up to the length of flight required for China & Australia.

China
Australia
Peru

With Peru, the issue is the altitude. I just don't know if I'm up to it.

There are other trips on my wish list (like Scotland & Ireland & Alpine Magic) that I just haven't gotten to yet! Which should be my biggest problem in life!

How long is your flight to Greece?
When we went to Peru, neither of us had any problems from the altitude. But, I purposely planned our trip to work from the lowest altitude, and up.

I say, go for it!! You will not be disappointed.

My top 3, in no specific order:
Galapagos (9 day)
Alpine Magic
Egypt

The Cambodia trip interests me, just wish it included Thailand.

So far, Peru is my longest flight (9 hours), so I understand your point on the flights.

The long leg of the flight to Greece (Philly to Athens) is 10 hours. The flight back is 11.25 hours. Not sure if that's fighting air currents or something that adds the extra hour & 15 minutes.

I just already have health issues I'm always dealing with when I travel, so I hate to add altitude sickness to the whole mess. I'll do it one of these days!

Peru interests me as well, but the altitude is a concern.

I'm with Tobi about the length of flight to get to the orient or Austrailia/NZ. Close to home, I'd love a trans-Canada trip. Perhaps by rail?

Moscow to St Petersburg would be nice!! Idk if I would, personally, have an interest in going to Brazil with ABD. My fingers are still crossed we will make it there next year.

I've looked at those Canadian train trips more than once. I'd love to do one of those, and doing it as an ABD would be great!

DH and DDalmost20 would love to go to St. Petersburg and Moscow. I'm not sure about that, but I guess I would consider it , ONLY with ABD.

I am another one that would love to do ABD Australia, but not sure I would survive the flight. Of course, that's what I thought about London/Paris and I did just fine. (DD was SO proud. - It's obvious she didn't get her wanderlust from ME. )

I REALLY wanted to do Amalfi Coast this year, but we are heading to Germany on the "Once Upon a Fairytale" ABD instead...

Unfortunately Via rail has stopped the coast to coast rail in Canada. You can pick up a train in Toronto I was told to get you into Vancouver. We have tried to stay in the older hotels that were built by the Canadian Pacific railroad throughout Canada. They are really monuments to a gone bye era. A friend had taken the Rocky Mountain train west out of Calgary and he said it was wonderful. Yes I would also love a trip like that after doing the ABD Montana/Banff trip.

I wonder how long it used to take to go coast to coast? That would have been quite a trip! I had briefly looked into taking one of those rail trips before my Montana/Banff trip got cancelled. Some day!
