    i also though an amazing place to visit would be some of the natural wonders like the greta barrier reif and the grand canyon.

    B Boy i would like to visit mount everest but they have a problem with tourists there, so the problem will probably get worse :p

    Just ahead- there in the moonlight.
    This topic reminded me of something I learned a little while ago. The maternity ward where I was born is now a palliative care unit. This means that if I return to my home town to die- I could die in the very same room in which I was born. I feel a bit depressed now.
