I'd love to go into space one day. I know it sounds a bit sci-fi, but perhaps at some point in my life it will become affordable for the average person to go into space, even if just for a short flight.

Another place I very much want to go to is into the desert. Ten years ago I went on holiday to The Gambia and flew over the Saharan coast. The view was awe inspiring - to see the sea stretching off to the horizon in one direction, and sand dunes stretching to the other horizon was an incredible sight. Its kind of hard to explain why it struck a chord though, it was something to do with the incredible calmness of the desert - the immensity and blankness of it seemed such a stark contrast to the view when flying over cultivated and urbanised Europe earlier in the flight. It seemed to be nature at its most basic.

From that point onwards I was determined to one day go out into the desert, even if just for a short trip. Fortunately this is likely to happen a bit sooner then my space trip as I'm going to Dubai in a couple of months and hope to go on a desert trip while there. Different desert I know, but hopefully as impressive.

It used to be that I would go somewhere to get away from everyone. The Carribbean Islands, remote parts of Mexico, mountains of New Zealand, Barrier Reef off the east coast of Australia, etc. However, these days one can just go somewhere on the web, see the sights, and still be away from the crowds.

I now prefer to go somewhere where English is not the primary language, and see how well I can manage.

That place used to be Torres del Paine National Park in Chile. But now I have been there -- twice -- and the list has mushroomed to dozens of places like that.

Himalayas used to be top of my list - but I think thats so commonly done these days that I'd quite possibly get annoyed by crowds of idiot backpackers (ironic really - when thats EXACTLY what I'd be!)

I've done all sorts of cool and interesting things...

Galloped around the Pyramids on horseback..
Sailed down the Nile on a Felucca..
Dived with Sharks and Manta Rays on Australias Barrier Reef..
Walked Inca trail to Macchu Pichu
Caught a death defying night time taxi ride accoss the Sinai desert
Canoed past Hippos, Crocs and Elephants on the mighty Zambezi
Watched lions feeding in the Ngorogoro crater.
Watched a real live crucifiction in Philippines...

but now I think in terms of travel I'd like to spend more time back in the English lake district where my fondest memories are of times spend wandering amongst the hills - often in torrential rain, just soaking up the isolation before returning to a warm cosy pub with a pint of quality real ale!

Try Ladakh, especially the lakes... still retains the charm and untouched feel .... is not so crowded with tourists, maybe coz getting there is still a big hassle.

Lake at 15000 Feet.....

I have been there once and I guess it beats anything I have seen till now, Will I go back for more....

You can make the route up as you go - the Tour takes a different route every year.

And to a certain extent you would have to, since the Tour from time to time goes along motorways that have been closed for the event, and likewise the wrong way down one-way streets. Or if you don't have two or three months available to replicate the entire three-week event (assuming your fitness level is not as high as those professional cyclists) you could try l'�tape du Tour which every year replicates one stage of the Tour for amateurs.

If I had to guts I would be crossing Sahara with the salt caravans, Siberia, Himalayas etc - as Dave explained very well there - basic but pure nature. Oh, I am also hoping to get some diving training!

You might want to try Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. They are better than many western cities in my opinion
