I'd love to go back to Italy! Just hire a car and take my time going from town to town...enjoying "local" life, food, festivities, music, churches, wine and the scenery...

South India. During July- August time usually it rains there and it is beautiful.

I am currently at one of my preferred Victorian locations - Ballarat - this being about night 500 for myself or family / friends since 2009 out at Sebastapol. I live not far from Phillip Island so that is effectively a stroll to visit but my other two locations are Lakes Entrance and Mount Hotham, not that I get to either very often.

Interstate I aim for Tasmania using either Hobart or Launceston as a day or overnight trip base.

Internationally I prefer New Zealand. Close by in flight duration but lots of variety to do and see on the two islands. Will go again when airfares settle down to within budgettry restraints like they were pre-covid.

We along with everyone else craved to travel again after Covid travelling restrictions were lifted. We were told about a great deal by a friend last year. We thought what the heck it sounds great and is a fantastic deal- we’ll take the chance and book it - along with my friend and hubby. It was back in October 2021 when we booked and things were still uncertain with Covid - as new outbreaks and strains were testing us all! We thought “what the heck, let’s take a chance”! We booked a 7 night all inclusive trip to Fiji for July 2022.
Well it did go ahead and we had the best time ever. It was great spending time with my long time friend- who has lived 6 hours away from me for a long time now. So that was lovely. Fijians are the most happy, welcoming and caring people, I would definitely recommend a trip there and I would definitely return. It’s such a beautiful place and so back to basics- it’s enlightening. We plan to travel around Australia and have travelled most states- but still so much more to see. We will be doing a lot more of Australia in the coming years but I still want to see as much of other places as I can also. We have a trip to Vietnam booked for next July! Can’t wait! Go for it- is my motto.

Europe for sure. Love the history the beauty and food. I love Australia and would never live anywhere else however travel is so amazing and I love it from the time of packing to the excitement of airports and plane travel and new experiences and people. So much fun. I would love to be paid to do it haha

My favourite holiday destination would have to be New York City - there is just no place quite like it! I love the hustle and bustle of the city and that there is always something to do. There are so many incredible restaurants and attractions to visit any time of the year but the city is most special to me during the Christmas season. I am planning on moving to Toronto next year and will be regularly venturing down to NYC every chance I get!

These days I prefer to take my holidays in Australia. There is so much I have yet to visit that I see no reason to travel overseas.

UK and the rest of Europe.
I want to do a 10 day Tudor tour.
I haven't been yet but keen to do an Aftican safari.
As to when, you'll have to ask my horses. Currently paying off my 2nd $1000 vet bill since July.
At this stage when William becomes King maybe

I do not have an absolute favourite but for me anywhere near a beach , somwhere I can hear the ocean, swim in the salt water and walk in the sand, there is nothing better to help you relax.

Love taking cruise around the pacific Islands. At this stage I have not short term plans to go back ... maybe in a couple years (flying anywhere is stressful and not ships leave locally).

Every year I go to Townsville to visit family. Then head to. Magnetic island and tablecloths of pics so when I head home I have. Plenty of images to paint. But my favourite place to visit is Victor Harbour south Australia it has so many great memories of my childhood. It a place i am drawn to. Regularly. Last time I visited. Was before the pandemic and I intend to. Head back next year. With my art materials. To paint. And catch-up with some old school friends. Looking forward to it. Just hope. That by then the issues. With. The airlines are over.

Mexico, I visited Mexico for a beautiful wedding but didn’t have enough time to tour around as much as I liked. Hoping to go back.

My favourite place in the world is Canada, followed closely by the US, then Spain. And no, I will never be going back - unless by some miracle a virus-sterilising vaccine is created that actually stops covid and prevents infection. As one of the vulnerable 47% of the population who is immunocompromised or disabled in some way (and now with covid-induced heart damage), I can no longer leave my home, let alone actually travel anywhere.

Vietnam! Before covid I had been three years in a row and would be happy to continue going there annually. Unfortunately I don’t have any travel plans in the near future but hopefully I can book something in for the near future :)

India and Bali. I just love the diversity of India as although it is huge it easy to travel around as the trains are very good although I do reccomend first class travel. The flights are good too but the trains are very sociable.

Bali is different but equally nice. The scenery is splendid and the people are very welcoming. Bali does have lots of religious festivals and there is plenty to do.

Personally I love Cairns as my favourite holiday spot. Most times the climate is one to enjoy. Once you go in to Queensland you feel as if you are already on holidays. Darwin is also a favourite destination mainly because of the friendly people and the life style if great. i must mention Tasmania as one of my picks. The highway between Hobart and Launceston is an eye opener with small villages etc. I have been on 2 cruisers but my over all choice is to stay in Australia. I love the place for its overall beauty.

I have always been fond of Scotland. Such a land of contrasts.

My favourite holiday destination is England. The reason for this is that my extended family live there and I want to get there because a few of my older relatives have cancer and I would love to see them before they die. I went in 1992 with my 3 young children, 7, 4 and 18 months. I didn't realise how expensive it was back then and had to stay with relatives on my dad's side and I was lucky that I got to see some of the south of England. Unfortunately I did not get to see my mum's relatives except for Nanny and Grampy. So that is why I want to go back but I am not sure when this will be. I will probably have to win xlotto.

Love the Gold Coast & Sunshine Coast, was there in May but unfortunately was very wet. Off to Bali in November & Turkey/Egypt/Jordan next year all holidays that were postponed from 2020.

My husband and I love caravanning in South Australia. So many lovely spots to enjoy that are not too far away from Adelaide. Yorke Peninsula and Eyre Peninsula have many great coastal holiday spots for swimming and fishing. Then there is the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Riverland and Langhorne's Creek for wineries. So we hope to ramble around SA on and off during Spring, Summer and Autumn starting in September 2022.

Japan - The people are lovely, the food is delicious and the fashion is unique. My parents took me here back in 2018 and I would love to go back once they have opened up to tourists freely again!

Tasmania – Launceston cataract Gorge is absolutely stunning, it has the longest single span chairlift ride in the world, peacocks and wildlife such as Poteroos & Wallabies and is just an incredibly breathtaking and serene place.

K'gari - Fraser Island is my new favourite holiday destination. stayed 5 days earlier this year and absolutely loved it. Stayed at Kingfisher Bay resort in a comfortable, modern villa with family. The full-day 4 wheel drive bus tour and half day cruise were a stand-out. Loads of free activities too with daily guided tours and talks by the rangers. Finish the day with a cocktail at Sunset bar or dine in the main restaurant. Hope to repeat in near future.

Vietnam is my favourite!
There are three parts to visit all with their own character. I have only made my way to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh (north and south) so I will be returning to visit Hoi An (the middle) when I can afford it next year.
Ho Chi Minh is separated again into districts, many are quite distinct from each other so if you go, you should make sure to stay in a number of different ones.
Once you are over there it is great value of money, rich in culture and I love eating their classics - Pho and Banh Mi.
