Best place you've been to

Post by GEOSGroup1 » Thu Nov 18, 2004 2:08 am

1) What is the best country/city/place you've ever been to? Describe the place and your experience.

2) In the future, what place would you want to visit? Why? What have you heard about that place?

Is that an activity for your students? ImageImageImage

I haven't traveled much, but here are my answers:

1) Italy. Especially Rome and Florence. I was 17 and it was a school trip. The best vacation ever!!!!!!!!!!!! I would repeat it right away... I loved every place we visited in Italy, but Rome and Florence were the ones I enjoyed most. First we went to Rome. I have always been attracted to ancient culture, so I loved the monuments, the Roman forum, the amphitheatre and so on. Maybe that's why I love Tarragona so much, because of its ancient Roman monuments... Anyway, I loved Florence because , in spite of my youth, I kept thinking that was the craddle of Renaissence. Michael Angelo, Da Vinci, Boticelli, Raphael... That was a paradise. :roll:

2) England, Scotland and Ireland. Why? Because I've got a degree on English Philology and yet I have never been there!! :( :( The only English-speaking country I've ever been to were the US. It's time to visit the UK and Ireland now...

1) the place I love most is Wien, a quiet town, with its Imperial atmosphere, friendly people and a deep cultural background, but I also like Ireland a lot and I would like to go back soon there (Dixie, we could organize a trip together!)

2) the list of the places I would like to visit is very long; just to quote some: Spain (in particular Andalusia), Northern Europe, Prague, Egypt, Australia..... the reason is that I like traveling and knowing different cultures.

i have been in italy, and the monuments are very beautiful, but there was a lot of pollution. and i wouldn't live there.

i have been in Chile. i liked much, in santiago the people work and there are money, but for example in valparaiso, tere are much poverty. but the beach is very beautiful.

i have been in Las Vegas. to me was very exiting. but when i come back i was very tired, because i was walk all day of shoppins.

I'm so happy that my students finally responded to this question. My incentive really worked. I 'm just waiting for Steven's reply. He replied in another forum. For those of you who are not my students, I also appreciate your response. Anyway, here's my answer to my questions;

The best place I've ever been to in the U.S. is Washington D.C. There are so many things to see and do for FREE! There are tons of museums, memorials, historical buildings, and more. So, if you like art, history, and culture, Washington D.C. is the place to see. As for the best place I've ever been to outside the U.S., I think the Philippines is the best so far. I went island hopping. I went to Boracay and Palawan (islands) and the beaches and rainforest were sooo beautiful. Plus, the people were so friendly and hospitable.

As for the places that I want to visit, I have so many on my list: Amsterdam, Brugge, Madrid, Barcelona, San Sebastian, Interlaken, Paris, Rome, Cinque Terre, Florence, Sienna, Corfu, Ios, Athens, Mykonos, Santorini, Innsbruck, Salzburg, Fussen, Munich, Prague, etc. I've never been to Europe. This summer, I'm planning to backpack across Europe with my friend. I'm gonna work hard to save money, so that I can afford to purchase a plane ticket and a Eurail pass.

1) New Zealand. I went there when I was 3rd years old of junior high school and I had a homestay. It was a great time for me. I satyed only ten days but this was vivid memory in my mind.

2) United Kingdom. I want to go there bcause I am very interested in British culture.

So far, it's Thailand. Vietnam is a great destination too but it does not compare to the hospitality of the Thais.

Yes, that's why I'd choose a transgender over a Chinese!

I guess transgender is bisexual, right? since a transgender person is a man as well as a woman, then she/he can love a man as well as a woman.

So terrific!

1) My best place is Singapore. Because Singapore is very modern & green. People live in Singpapore are very friendly & kindly. I hope I'll have other chance to visit there again.

2) I wish I can travel to Japan. I heard that Japan is very beautiful & Fuji mountain is the most.But travel to Japan is very difficult and very expensive , I don't know when my dream will come true?!? :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:
Never Say Never !!!
