1. Hawaii (partially thanks to Dan) [beauty, relaxation]
2. Kruger National Park (and South Africa) [more of same]
3. Paris [get some European attitude]
4. Poland [heritage, roots tour]
5. Somewhere in South America [seems cool, experience]
6. Alaska [gorgeous]
7. Iraq [or somewhere similar, study old culture - ways of doing things]
8. Switzerland [didn't see enough the first time around]
9. Sri Lanka [visit my goyta's fam]
10. EY - after living here 8 of the last 12 years, still on my list - so much still to experience/see/do]
11. I forgot to mention my plan/desire to RV across the great United States

9. Sri Lanka [visit my goyta's fam]

Are you serious?
1) Is it not dangerous for a Jew to be in Sri Lanka, 2) Just to visit 'goyta's family?

Either way, nice list.

Why would it be dangerous?

the goyta's family part was a joke, for all readers not so avid. She does talk about how nice the country is, i have a hookup there to get me around, there's really cheap Banana republic clothes to be had (they make a lot of it there, and sell it locally for pennies), interesting culture, cool food (even if not all kosher)... now if they would only stop fighting amongst themselves it might be safe enough to visit

Anyone here ever been to Plitvichka Jezara National Park in Croatia?   I've gotta add that one to my list.

Top 10 is very hard as there's so many places I'd like to go to and for very different reasons...

But right about now wouldnt mind being in,
Mauritius
Boracay Island
Hawaiian Islands
Greek Islands
French Polynesia
Phi Phi Island
Nosy Iranja
Whitsundays
Seychelles
Maldives
Which islands in Hawaii? Mauritius is amazing and there is kosher food as an option on Sugar Beach Resort. I would suggest doing Seychelles and Mauritius around the same time since you are coming to the region. Is Maldives still as good as they say as I heard from a friend who went there recently it is turning out to be a lot more similar to Zanzibar(beautify place that is heading downward).

Do the Ayrabs/Muslims give you peace of mind?  Safe over there?

Probably worth seeing all of the Hawaiian Islands, no?

Was thinking about Seychelles and Mauritius together but gonna do them separately. Perhaps one with Africa/South Africa/Madagascar.
