One of mine has to be Jim Corbett's national park in India. Watching wildlife on the foothills of the himalayas is a unbelievable experience. Seeing tigers, leopard's, snakes, and many more animals, while your on a elephant is spine tingling.

New Zealand.

Driving around both islands, seeing some of the most spectacular scenery and fascinating wildlife was utterly amazing. Going to the tip of the North Island and gazing into the vast expanse of sea and sky on a beautiful sunny day was a moment I'll never forget.

Visiting Wellington where my dad was born nearly ninety years ago.

And it was my honeymoon.

Fabulous food as well.

Other great travelling experience was driving all the way to Sofia in Bulgaria back in 2009.

Have to say going back to south Africa is amazing for me. There is just so much there to see. Quite literally something for everyone.
But that shouldn't count as im clearly biased.

My favourite holiday so far was spent in the Greek islands. We went from Corfu to Naxos to santorini to Syros and back. Each beautiful in a different way. Not a cloud in sight for 2 weeks.

I've not been too many places that exotic but I'd have to say Segovia, Spain is definitely up there.

I used to live in So Cal as well which was really nice, though you don't appreciate it when you wake up to it every morning.

Zainy I would love to go to Namibia. One thing I want to see is lions in the wild.

Seeing the Taj Mahal and the Golden Temple in India was also unbelievable.

kalahari desert, Kruger Park, Trinidad, Picos de Europa, lake District, Gambia, Snowdonia, Magnetic island, Cyprus amongst many.

Loved all of them for walking,food, drink, wildlife etc



Arsenal is a top 16 European club that will remain a top 16 European club and the Emirates is tape-loop that will win trophy after trophy

Nothing will change to stop Arsenal's domination except the ticket prices which must go up so that Wenger can make even more marquee signings.

Kroenke, Gazidis & Wenger are made for each other a glorious triumvirate heading for immortality.

Arsenal’s not a football club it is the one true religion Milton Palmer

I've been to Portugal. Drove from the south to the north.

Lisbon is a great busy brash city that is more South American than European. Fascinating place.

Porto is great too.

Portuguese women, great if you like your girls dark which I do.

Terrible drivers though. Only the Russians are worse.

I've been to Ladakh. I went to a town called Dras. It's the 2nd coldest inhabited place on earth. I won't go back there in a hurry.

Ladakh has 9 months of winter n 3 months of summer, best times to visit is June to Sept...after Oct due to snow the roads r closed

best is to go on a road trip from Delhi, which most bikers do.... especially Royal Enfield owner groups

Indiangooner watch out for the altitude sickness mate. It's better to travel there by plane. Going by road was the one of the scariest experience's I've had- you know what Indian drivers are like.

I've not been there but I've heard that Segovia has got stunning architecture. Definitely on my shortlist of places to go one day.

Seville and Granada are two interesting cities but India has got to be the my favourite place I've visited by a distance. Went there about 25 years ago and it was the first time I'd been outside Europe. Travelled around by train and I've never experienced so many different feelings in such a short period. Hideous poverty and incredible wealth right next to each other and probably the worlds most frustrating bureaucracies.

Jon, what parts of India did you visit?

 
Re: Favourite places you've visited?

GS

I flew into Delhi and then over about 3 weeks travelled by train to Bombay. Stopped over for a few days at Agra, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur and Ahmedabad I’m not one for the set piece tourist sites but you’re spot on about the Taj. I’m more of a people watcher (not in a weird way) so India was the perfect place to visit. Everywhere you went something new and unusual to see. I particularly remember a wedding procession in the suburbs of Delhi. The groom was sitting on a white horse and the guests were dancing along behind. A number of the guests had rudimentary lighting systems on their heads with someone behind each one of them carrying a portable generator. Great memories are flooding back as I write this.

Jon, the last time I went India the amount of weddings I saw was ridiculous. I was on a rickshaw in Delhi, and in the space of about 15 minutes I must have gone past about 8 weddings.

That's the thing about India, always expect the unexpected. In India you can never get bored. There's, History, Religion, deserts, beaches, Wildlife, himalayas, you name it India's got it.

You're right about the poverty it is very upsetting. The first time I went India I was moaning because this hotel didn't have a certain channel which ment I couldn't watch Arsenal. This old guy come up to me and taught me a lesson I'll never forget. He told me an Indian proverb- I had no shoes and complained, until I meet a man who had no feet.

Just got back from the Florida Keys and I have to say, best 5 days of my life.

I didn't absorb any cultures, see any castles, taste any new cuisine... but damn. Nothing like chillin on a boat, drinking beers and doing some snorkeling before showering up and hitting the bars that night.

Don't look so bad - of course I judge a good tan by how much I'm peeling.


If you go back to Morocco would you mind dropping off a package for me? It's about 6ft2, couldn't get it through customs last time because the spikes on one end were considered weapons. Didn't pay anything for it so I'd rather not have to lay out for shipping but at this point I wouldn't mind...

Your baseball cap is on the wrong way round. Rotate by 180 degrees and you wont get sun burn on your bonce.

It's not a baseball cap, it's my sister's cap. My head at this point was red raw.
