When this pandemic is over, where is the first place you want to travel to and why?

Everywhere....because I finally can lol

but in reality....a friend in Mexico and family on the big island of Hawaii.

My Delta miles and my Alaska Airline miles keep building up with use of my Credit Cards but I can never use them.

We had planned on a Greece and Southern Balkans trip for this year so I would like to actually take that trip But it is probably more likely that the first places that will be open to us for international travel will be New Zealand and/or some Pacific Islands so I am thinking that will be our first overseas trip otherwise our first travels will be domestic around Australia. Last year when the lockdowns lifted we did an outback NSW road trip and if the state borders stay open we would like to do a QLD road trip this year and we are looking into maybe visiting Norfolk Island;).

Mongolia in June....but they closed their borders - so no idea where next. I want to visit a new country (or 2 or 3) as time permits.

Booked an August cruise to eastern Greenland and Jan Mayen. Also booked a November cruise from Athens to Dubai via Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Oman and Abu Dhabi. One of the goals of that voyage is to pass through the Suez Canal and the Strait of Hormuz. If India reopens, I plan to visit Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Mizoram and Nagaland before finishing in Bangladesh. If it weren't for the pandemic, today I would have been at sea heading to Macquarie Island, landing at Anare Station on Feb. 17 and Sandy Bay the following day. Macquarie, a part of Australia, is the only place where Earth's mantle is above water.

Hi Bob. Do you take a lot of cruises? Those all sound wonderful. I was in India just almost a year ago. We were there just as COVID was hitting and the shutdowns were starting. We almost didn't make it back home! (Not that that would have been a bad thing haha).

A job I once had almost sent me to Australia and New Zealand. I was so excited but they changed my contract last minute. Someday I'd like to go. Since you're from there, what are the top things not to miss?

I don't do a lot of cruises. My first was in 1973, when I went from New York to Naples. My second was in 2016, when I went from Valparaiso to Buenos Aires, following part of Magellan's route. It also was a chance to see the Chilean fjords, Cape Horn and the Falklands. After arriving in Buenos Aires, I flew to El Calafate to hike in Patagonia (both in Argentina and Chile), then flew home via Punta Arenas and Santiago. I also use cruises to take me to places where it's convenient, such as the Caribbean and Pacific islands, the Panama Canal and the Antarctic. In August I hope to be on a ship to eastern Greenland and Jan Mayen. Next March I plan to be back in the Falklands, then to South Georgia and the Tristan da Cunha archipelago before reaching Cape Town.

Mostly I fly and travel by road, track or train. You see more by land.

Early last year I spent a month in the Kutch region of India near the border with Pakistan. India is one of my favorite countries. I especially like the regions near the Himalayas, such as the Suru, Nubra and Zanskar valleys and villages such as Turtuk. I also like India's high-altitude lakes such as Chandra Tal and Tso Moriri. Getting there is thrilling. Equally as challenging are some of the roads or tracks in Nepal, such as those in Mustang all the way to the border with China. India's tribal regions also are worth visiting, such as those in Chhattisgarh and Odisha.
