Hmm, I can answer this two ways...

For work, I have twice been away from home (other than monthly or so trips home to Toronto) for 14 months. The first one was 9 months in Denver, Colorado and then 5 months in San Antonio, Texas. I saw some great stuff when I was there - the rocky mountains in Colorado, the gulf coast and hill country of Texas. The second trip was 14 months in Atlanta. Unfortunately, not much to report on for Atlanta - I didn't get away as much as previous work trips. I did, however, see Ashley Simpson play at the Midtown Music Festival. As far as I could tell, she was not lipsyncing.

As a tourist, I spent 8 weeks down in South America. I saw Chile, Argentina and Bolivia. Awesome trip - the geography of Patagonia is amazing, especially from the deck of the Navimag ferry. Buenos Aires is inexpensive and very chic. Bolivia, in keeping with it's nature, went through a citizen uprising when I was there.

Also done 7 months in the med going to places like Barcelona, Istanbul, Tel Aviv and a few other places dotted around.
