I think the challenge should be who can come up with your Top10 list, Dan ;) Bonus points for whoever gets the order right.

BOB, PPT, MLE etc. etc.

+10, but why BOB?

EDIT: I mistook BOB for Bob Hope (in CA). Never mind me.

My top 5 would be:

BOB/PPT
MLE
Phuket
Banff
Sydney

BOB, PPT, MLE etc. etc

Just so I'm clear, those places aren't my list, here's my list, in no specific order.

The land of Israel - Eilat to the Golan (or vice versa)
New Zealand
Morocco (with a hop to Gibraltar, if that doesn't count as another one)
Hungary
Kruger National Park - South Africa
Kathmandu, Nepal
Fiji
Scandinavia (I hope that counts as one place, considering it's four countries)


I'll reserve two spots, so I can choose them later :D

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]

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?
