Surprised I'm the first Aussie to jump in at this one... 2000KM??? You might find yourself a little south of Brisband. Double it and then add a bit more and you'd be in the right vicinity!!!

PS - my best place? that's a tough one - a tie (can I have one pls?) between Vanuatu and the Philippines.

Kotor, in Montenegro... the most beautiful lovely town I could ever imagine seeing.

Everything about it is a dream.

Or Sarajevo or Mostar. Too powerful for words.

Jeezus, Ive been to 35 countries, and Korea totally is the bottom. Oh well, the job is good.

Fairy Meadow- Gilgit, Pakistan. Walking to the basecamp of Nanga Parbat was unforgetable.

Kuta Lombok- Some of the best barrels in my life. Excellent fish and mushies.

Angkor Wat, Preah Khan and Ta Phrom- what can I say?

Varanasi, India- everyday I was there I saw something that I've never seen before in my life.

New South Wales mid north coast- there's no place like home. Smile

Korea is okay. Only been here for a month though, so....

yeah the Great Wall is the most incredible site I've seen though I'm trying to get to Angkor this summer, that is something I am truly looking forward to.

Now has anybody done it overland from Bangkok recently?

Get from BKK by minibus or public bus to Aranya Prathet. From there you pass through Cambo customs at Poi Pet (a depressing armpit of a place and then get another bus/minivan to Siem Reap.

You can organize Visa and minibus from any one of a number of joints on Khao San Road, but ask plenty of questions about transport once you cross the border. Me and some friends ended up riding for 5 1/2 hours in the back of a pickup on the most bumpy godforsken road I've ever seen.

Angkor has to be one of the most spectacular sights in the world, hands down. Enjoy.

And where else in Korea can you get served by Tom Cruise? (but the Hess rocks for Miss Kim's mum's popcorn - unparallelled yum!)

Interesting... so many places, I have to write some of tehse down and do a little vacation research.

1. Bermuda; I want to retire there. Its expensive to live there but I had such an impression of the relaxed lifestyle that I went back and stayed longer.

2. Maine...Stop laughing. Twisted Evil I have great memories of travelling thru Maine and New England. Route 9 along the coast, Camden...back inland to Wisscasset(sp) ....
Good times.

3. Korea. I live here; good pay for what I do.

Very true - did you see any of the Swami's eating body parts from floating cremations of the dead washed up on the river banks? I saw one with an arm he seemed to be coveting and not about to share it with other Swami's. Did a double take and side-stepped the crazy old man.

To add one - Kathmandu - Nepal - a rickshaw powered by an old lawn mower contraption, tied to the rickshaw with bits of old rope - the thing rocketed along though, overtaking everything in sight, leaving a trail of thick black smoke in its wake.

Squaffy,
I saw these fresh water dolphins eating body parts in the Ganges but I also saw Sadhu's who were naked except for being covered in human ashes and carrying tridents; ******* different mate! India is something else!!!! Can't wait to have another look.

Naked Sadhu's - check out the ashram in Puna / Poona (Marharastre spp?), about an hr. by bus from Bombay) - one of Osho's relics - mad place Laughing

Dolphins - were they the funny looking things with extra long snouts on them - like a cross between a dolphin and a crocodile? Narials I think they are called. Weird story, read it in a book - one was tagged in Tibet then spotted in India - like, underground river systems under the Himalaya. Freaky.

Back On Topic: Borneo - taking a motorcycle tour through the interior, saw an Orangutan throwing rocks at any human in sight - like BIG rocks - think she had a baby nearby and was protecting it.

Is is just me, or is "the best place you've been to" more a state of mind than a location? Some of the places I've enjoyed the most aren't neccessarily ones that I'd recommend to others...
