    If you do get to Ljubljana, try the Human Fish beer. It's their idea of a bitter. It's, interesting. Failing that, there is a nice lager there called Lasko (pronounced Lashko). You can get that anywhere. There is an Irish pub (isnt there one everywhere?) which has a good selection of UK beers.

    The zoo is also rather lovely. It's less like a zoo, and more like a walk in the park with added giraffes.

    They also occasionally run a steam train from Jesenice, near Bled, to Gorica, which is well worth doing. They have entertainment at some of the stations, and you get to meet Archduke Franz Ferdinand (who seems remarkably healthy, all things considered). The scenery is stunning. We did a variation on this which included a coach trip. That also included a lovely village called Smartno, a visit to a vineyard, and a fantastic meal. The whole trip takes a day, but is worth doing.

    One very important thing about Ljubljana - never hail a cab! They charge an insane rate for that. If you want a cab, book it by phone. Even call your hotel and get them to do it. The price difference is roughly threefold, and they will not listen if you end up with a bill you cannot pay.

    We've not done the Croatian coast, but we've driven through the country a few times. Zagreb seems a nice place, but we've never really had the chance to have a proper look at it.

    Hey FGP, that's my pick too! In fact, I was down there last week. We had lunch on the Isle Of Capri the first day, at a place called Island Gypsy Cafe. We went to the Sunset Grille twice, as it is our favorite spot. We also went to Goodland and had dinner at The Little Bar, another favorite haunt.

    We have family in Jackson Hole, so I usually get to the Tetons and Yellowstone every other year. And I live an hour away from Rocky Mountain National Park, so that's always on the agenda when visitors come.

    I want to get back to Hawaii and want to see Ireland.

    I like Maine the coastal towns and some the lakes are really beautiful and it’s a real laid back place. I just wish I didn’t have to drive through NYC to get there. The picture is a friends place on an 11 mile long lake. It’s one the most relaxing places I’ve ever been.

    The Carolina beaches are nice too. There are a lot of islands that are just rental homes, no boardwalks and giant hotels like an hour from me here in MD. The pelicans always fly in formation. This is Sunset Beach about 2 miles from South Carolina. [​IMG]

    My Dad was sent to a lot of places in his USAF career.
    He liked Northern Italy, and the Italians he met best.
    He was stationed near Garda Lake near the Swiss border.

    We did the Memphis thing last summer and it was a musician's dream with all the museums. I enjoyed the Stax museum the most, but there's Sun Records, Rock n Roll Museum and the Gibson Factory also. I'm glad I went to Graceland just to see it but it was a total zoo of people and a money making machine. I actually liked visiting his birthplace in Tupelo, MS more but that's just me.

    Like most Australians- Bali.
    Have been to many countries and a friend of mine
    who had travelled the world for 41/2 years decided to stop in there as his last place before returning home to Oz.
    He said it was the best place he'd seen in all his worldwide travels.
    (Some parts, Kuta, are ruined- I saw it in 1978 as a coastal
    village with great surf).
    The people are beautiful, gentle and kind. I have a friend there
    who has taken me to places few white people ever see.
    Over the years I have seen most of Asia to India.
    If you want to see real Asia, Bali and south Vietnam are full
    of beautiful people.
    Am off there with all my extended family for my twin and my 60th.
    in 16 days!! Yeah, warm weather and walks on the beaches- good food too.
