What town or city would you most like to visit if money was not an object and why?

Asked by chyna (34252 points ) September 20th, 2009

As a teenager, I wanted to live in New York and that was my plan for my life, but it never happened due to family issues. Where did you always want to go to live, but never got a chance to do so?

i can’t pick just one: i’d like to go to Moscow, Tokyo, Oslo, Rio, etc. They all have good points.

Too, I always wanted to do a tour of museums of the world: The Hermitage, The Lourve, Smithsonian, etc.

short answer: too many to give one. :)

I second @eponymoushipster I want to see all the really cool museums. One place I’d love to visit is Norco, CA. Just because one of my best friends in life lives there. Alas, it’s over 2,000 miles away and I just can’t afford it.

Unadventurous, I know.. but my priorities are what they are lol

Barcelona comes to mind first.

Dublin. The pubs/ Guinness, the culture, that accent and to see a castle or two.

chyna's avatar

@eponymoushipster So, any plans to go to any of those places?

eponymoushipster's avatar

@chyna nope, not yet. i thought the museum thing would be a cool honeymoon. but, first, i need to get a honey….

chyna's avatar

@eponymoushipster Wait, I thought you were engaged?

Cairo. I love Egypt. I’d be a bit scared, but so excited. I want to see the Pyramids so bad.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@eponymoushipster Just a matter of time then.

There are many places I’d like to visit.

I visited London a few years back and adored it. I’d love to go and stay for a month, doing all the touristy things, visiting Ireland and Scotland and Wales, museum-hopping, taking afternoon tea, etc.

Also, a small village in Switzerland (Champery) was a wonderful place to visit. I would love to have a summer home there.

I hope to travel to Japan next summer…there’s an immersive language + homestay + culture program that my uni offers.

Paris.
If money was no problem, maybe Bombay. I would take everyone to McDonalds.

If money was no object? I’d go back to SF and buy all of my friends there drinks.

Or I’d move to Dublin and work as a writer.

I’ve always wanted to go to NYC. I have a deep desire to see the Statue of Liberty. I also have always wanted to go to London.

Edit: I would be happier if I could take my girl along with me to either place :)

I would love to go to Paris. Tried to once, but all the high schools were banned from working Rockies, and Broncos games.

Tahoe City, California, or any city around the shore really. I’d buy a nice house on the lake with a private dock where I can sit and read. Since money is no object, I’d have vacation homes in Athens, Greece and Dubai, UAE. Both of those places are absolutely incredible.

Venice.

Why not?

evegrimm's avatar

@XOIIO, just don’t go in the summer. It’s sticky and hot. (But great scenery and shops…tons of mask stores, glass factories, that church on the square…)

XOIIO's avatar

@evegrimm I would have loved to grow up in Venice! Instead of getting your first bike, you’d get your first paddleboat!

Japan. I have always wanted to go there, but I also want to go to the Patagonia region of Argentina. Mabey, I will come across some penguins while there. That would be so cool :)

I would choose Upplands, a small town outside Stockholm. That is where my oldest son lives, and I have not seen him for 18 years. I would love a chance to meet my 9 year old granddaughter.

perplexism's avatar

London, Tokyo, Egypt, Italy, Cape Town, South Africa – so many to choose from.

Bluefreedom's avatar

Probably Sydney, Australia. I’ve been all over Europe and lived in Asia and the Middle East so I’d like to finally see what really goes on ‘down under’. After that, there are about 3 dozen other cities and places I’d like to see. First things first though.

Olympus Mons

Patagonia

It’s so beautiful and untouched by the fugly.

shego's avatar

@jonsblond that picture is awesome I have always wanted to go there. I saw a special on it when I was little.

evegrimm's avatar

I had a thought, and would like to answer again.

I would love to live on a tall ship or similar schooner-type sailing vessel for a long time, visiting, well, anywhere, actually. (It could be going from Alaska down to Mexico, or from Cali to Hawaii, or up and down the European coast, or sailing in the Mediterranean…)

I wouldn’t mind living on a houseboat.

deni's avatar

@mattbrowne OLYMPUS MONS. Oh heavens, yes!!!!!!!!!!

Athens would be great too I absolutely LOVE greek history. I so wish I would have lived then. Daily life in a toga.

chyna's avatar

@jonsblond Thanks for sharing the picture. Such a beautiful place.
