Can't talk to BOB because I haven't been, but MLE was incredible. Now that I've been, can't imagine going through life without having gone.

If a person doesn't care about premium products (or to a lesser extent diving), and can stay at either in OWB at FS, SR, or IHG T, then I'd pick BOB > MLE.

Making some changes based on recent research and trip reports.

#6 - Scenery and activities is more important to me than better snorkeling. If I travel to the other end of the world for snorkeling, I may as well go to the very best (see #9), and do BOB over MLE for now.

Did we finally get an answer?!

What about if diving is an added variable?

I'd be lying if I said I was currently working on it...

In middle of AKL and BOB/MEL now.

2. Go to Mecca by the Hajj
3. Sky dive in Dubai
4. Hang glide in Rio
5. Go on a tour to North Korea
6. Go on an expedition to Antarctica
7. Cross Siberia in the dead of winter
8. Go to space
9. Boat down the Amazon
10. Fly out of TLV on an international flight with absolutely no luggage.

1) Kenya/Tanzania (wildebeast migration)
2) Azores
3) BOB
4) NZ (RV across)
5) Bali
6) Philippines (Amanpulo)
7) Galapagos/Easter island
8) Hawaii
9) Alaska
10) The Amazon

The list is significantly longer but i picked the 10 that are most realistic that I see happening in the next 3-4 years. At least 3 are already planned.
