only 3, not fair  ;D ;D

1. Orbit the earth
2. Submersilble like James Cameron to the ocean depths, but not as claustrophobically small  :P
3. One Way Trip to Mars ? Ok, Amazon Rain Forest

If this list were longer.... I'd add the poles, trip over Alaska by plane (remote regions), Orcas in Alaska, Great White in South Africa, Northern Lights (anywhere!), Brazil, Spitsbergen (polar bears), S. Argentina, Bolivian Salt Flats, Yellowstone, Yosemite and Tetons in Winter, Galapagos, Peru, Japan in winter, Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, India (tigers), Bhutan, Tibet, Lapland, Ice Hotel, Husky Driving to remote Scandanavia, Ngorogoro crater, Borneo, New Zealand (N&S Islands), Pakistan, Bangladesh, Great Barrier Reef, Myanmar, Iceland (summer & winter), Lotofen Islands (winter), Northern Norway (winter), Norwegian Fjords, Australian outback, Petra/Jordan, Holy Land/Israel, Poland, Moscow/Russia, Lithuania, Siberia, temples in Iran/Iraq, Eastern Turkey, Southern Italy, Dolomites, Tallin/Estonia, Budapest, Silk Road, East Java, Malaysia, S.Ireland, Hebrides, Costa Rica, Kgalagadi Park S.Africa, Botswana (okavanga delta), Egypt (pyramids), Rwanda (Gorillas), Chimps in Tanzania, Sardine Run in S. Africa, Venice, Vienna, St Petersburg, Mongolia, Iguazu Falls, Madagascar, South Korea, Lisbon, Sri Lanka.

If life is all about what you do in the time that you have, then photography is about the pictures you take not the kit that took it. Still it's fun to talk about the kit, present or future :)

For me it´s quite simple, I only travels to Australia, there are still so many things I haven´t seen, even through i´ve been down under 4 times so far.

Many other places including many in the United States. Also, I love the idea of going into space. I could be the first economist in space!
It's far more likely that there will be lawyers in space long before economists..... a lot of people would like to see a bunch of lawyers on top of a 300 foot tube filled with high explosives and launched into somewhere where there is no air to breathe :)

I'm in the Dominican Republic next week but the guys here at CRF told me to leave my camera at home and drink beer.

Fook them, I'm taking the 5D3, Sigma 35 and Lensbaby Sweet 35. It'll be a sharp vs. artsy blurred semi wide Caribbean lovefest.

Yeah I've ran the numbers, out of 14k images 35mm comes in 2nd place to 200mm.

1) Tonga to swim with Humpbacks (trying to make this happen next August)
2) Galapagos for the underwater

Those stand out, after that its:

Australia
Yellowstone/Grand Tetons/Glaciers for fall colors (doing this next September if Tonga doesn't pan out)
Iceland
Tahiti
Antarctica
Kauai Na Pali coast kayak tour (doing this next summer for 6 days)
Denali NP (spending 12 days here next month)

I'm lucky to live in Maui which probably makes some lists, and I spend 30+ hours a week out on the water during whale season photographing the Humpbacks.

Aloha!

LOL! I'm sure a lot of folks feel the same way about economists too.  :)

*sigh* I would love to go to...
  • The Galápagos Islands - the birds there. Especially Blue-footed Booby.
  • The parks in Kyoto in spring (Sakura while blooming), and in autumn (the leaves of Japanese Maple).
  • Can't decide, but there's probably plenty of places where I would be able to see beauty, if I only bring the right mind-set with me...
Yesterday I tried to toss an egg on someone against the wind. Today the yolk's on me.

I currently live in the Netherlands. Since I got serious about photography I've been to:

Japan
Turkey
India
Schotland
Cyprus
Oman & UAE
Costa Rica
Angola
Vietnam
Namibia
Cornwall
Malaysia

Pictures here: http://www.mrsfotografie.nl/reizen

Next up is Malaysia again, hopefully. A truly fabulous destination (I've lived there 12 yrs). I think I can get better photo's too because last time I was there I was very new to photography.

Other destinations?

Maybe Canada, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Cambodia, Chile, something exotic... we'll see.
