    I actually had a short visit to the Azores years ago during service in the Air Force--very unique. Going back as a civilian with my wife(my perfect travel companion)would be an adventure.

    My wife has been longing to get out and about in The Hawaiian Islands-- I've only seen Oahu. Great suggestion.

    I’m still kind of a tdpri noob, but threads like this are some of my favorite on the site. Such a wide variety of knowledge in this group. We could create a helluva podcast, hosted by a revolving group of regulars.

    Myself included, of course.

    You’ll like it, the other islands have less people and more diverse scenery:)

    We would love to take a long , ala Charles Kuralt-style, road trip in our van to look for America in all its many forms. You guys are inspiring me.

    I almost included a “driving through the South music tour” in my suggestions. Just from the folks here, we could put together an itinerary that would keep ya busy for a couple of months:lol:

    I had a really great time in Albania two years ago. Off the beaten track, but great beaches, landscape, food and people.

    Already went on a musical pilgrimage to Memphis a few years back. Would love to go on a Muscle Shoals, AL and Mississippi blues tour.

    Yeah, it's got a bit busy up there now hasn't it? Nine people died this week. I heard a professional climber on the radio today criticising the inexperienced guys that try for the summit. "They can't get a helicopter up there to bring you back down"

    You can spend a couple of days in Macon doing ABB things. The Big House museum, eat at Mama Louse’s place, visit Rosewood Cemetary....

    Just saw the death toll climbing in Nepal is 18. Eight on Everest. More deaths on Everest in Tibet as well. And yeah, that photo is nuts.

    Cheers,

    I wonder if any in that queue on Everest would tackle K2 or another remote peak without the traffic...:rolleyes:

    As a former mountain climber, this photo severely creeps me out on many levels.....

    You might consider Sintra, near the West coast of Portugal. It'd combine very well with a trip to the Azores.
