My top 10:
3. AKL/SYD/MEL
Unless you have an entire month I'd separate Australia from NZ.

I can't decide on an order so here are a top 10 list likely to change any time.

1. Bolivia


2. New Zealand/Glow worm cave







3. Bora Bora



4. Fiji





5. South Africa (Kruger/Cape town/Victoria Falls)







6. The Amazon Rainforest/Iguazu  Falls





7. Scandinavia/Northern Lights.





8. Antarctica



9. Australia

Haven't done enough research to decide on where exactly...



10. Nepal/The Himalayas/Climb Mount Everest.







There are so many other amazing places in the world it is very hard to decide on 10 places, but I'll be very happy if I do these 10. Sorry if I got carried away with the pictures, just one pic won't do certain places justice...

Also if your from the US I highly recommend NZ south Island first before going to australia, it is way more exotic then Australia.

True about climbing Everest (it was a childhood dream after I saw the Imax). And I know they are, I plan on doing them all in good time. Maybe an around the world ticket one of these days.

I just love that picture and I can probably add it to the Amazon/igazu falls trip...

Walking on water can be done on the Kinneret according to at least one religion
