My sisters between them have visited ten of these but not really my cup of tea.

After 30 years of almost constant travelling, I have grown tired of ultra-long journeys, my dear. The Spanish destination looks appealing though.

I've done two - North Vietnam (as some of you may have realised ) and Angkor Wat.

I was thinking of trying to do the Angkor Wat half marathon some time. It's supposed to be a great lark.

In different economic times, Miss Millhouse (as she was known at the time) and I went to Butlins at Bognor Regis. That was a once in a life time trip for sure.

I may have been to the one in Spain - went all over Europe as a kid with the folks but don't really remember too much of it.

edit - the only one I'd actually be interested in is mount picchu. Bit disappointed that Christ the Redeemer at Rio isn't there. I'd like to see that too.

Yay, I've done one! The Camino de Santiago - at least some of it. Stopped off to see the Bull running in Pamplona too.

If you're referring to your wife, either she had the same maiden name as your surname, or you married your sister. I think we should be told.

Neither. She is just a chronic Simpsons fan. Personally, I think she should grow up.

really you've had enough travelling? Have you seen everything you want to see? I can't imagine ever having enough- is there nowhere left you would like to visit?
