    Hm, top places, for me it's mostly nature I want to see, not really interested in cities:
    Sweden from south to north
    Finland, the same
    Norway, the fjords, but I think it's all too expensive to ever go there..
    Scotland and Ireland.
    Further I'm not so interested in Europe anymore.

    Japan, I want to live this culture for a while, the whole country has something amazing to me.
    Australia, driving through the outback,
    New Zealand, some kind of tour on the northern and southern island. Taupo.
    Tasmania, because Abel Tasman was from my native homeground. My municipality.
    Canada, especially the Rockies in BC.
    USA, Yellowstone park and maybe NY or LA, just to find out what's so awesome about them.
    Hmm, I'm not so sure about South America, Maybe the beaches in Brazil.
    I want to visit the Netherlands Antilles, to be in the farthest piece away that's still the Netherlands.
    Africa seems intriguing but also dangerous.

    Oh, and Easter Island.

    The Moon, Mars and a trip around the solar system :)

    In terms of places on earth then old civilizations would be awesome like Machu Pichu.

    i would like to do a trip around Europe by car, passing by france, England, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, etc. I would also like to do a coast to coast trip on USA, but for doing those trips i need a lot of money, so i will have to wait until i've spared that money

    That guy wants to record all Dutch motorways and has also done many others..
    One of the vids:
    Dutch Afsluitdijk. http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afsluitdijk


    This way you can drive through Europe digitally and for free.

    Mike Sterckx I've been in that picture you posted last :) Banff, one of the places I would go migrate to in Canada if it werent for having family here in the Netherlands.

    Furthermore I have a long childhood dream that I just have to do one in my life. Start in Amsterdam by car and drive all the way east until I hit the far east shores of Vladivostok. Check out this awesome route as its only 11:500 km :)

    Secondly I want to see all of Europes contries and heritage so there is a long list left of places to visit on this continent. Norway, Finland, Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Macedonia, Albania, Portual and Greece. The latter I will boycot though as I don't want to pay anymore to them than I've already done in the last two years. They should invite all of the Dutch people to spend a holiday there for free seeing all the billions we've send there for nothing.:redface:

    Last but not least: The Pitcairn Islands just because of the awesome story behind it and the extremely remote location in the world.

    Anyone remember those '3D Viewers' that you stuck a disc into containing 8 double miniature slides that you could rotate?
    Ive got a selection of these that my Grandfather took while serving with the RAF just after
    WW2 of him & some mates in nearly this exact location!
    He used to send these slide-disc things back to my Dad & Grandmother- I wish I knew of someway to share them here...
    Unfortunately, his plane went missing somewhere over the Bering Strait (long story) but Ive always wanted to visit Canada just to see where he'd been.
    If he'd survived his service term he'd planned to move his family over there & fly for BOAC....
    Ive also always wanted to visit the Isle of Man & then do a road trip similar to what Bram mentioned making my way back to Canada with a Ferriswheel's tour on Royal Enfields (http://www.ferriswheels.com.au/) from India to China & check out the Pyramids in the Xao (I think it was) province....
    Having spare money AND free time AT the same time has always been the downfall of that plan though! lol

    I've been to Banff quite a few times when i used to work with United Van Lines, very nice there and so is Jasper. Close to Banff is Lake Louise, another nice place. The Rocky Mountains is pretty much the last beautiful sight you will see venturing east. After that it is just flat prairie land, very boring and nothing much nice to see until you reach Ontario.
