If you were to travel around the world in 80 days, which countries would you like to be on your list? And why?

Of course, not. :lol: It'd take you about three or four weeks in Europe, unless you just wanted to stop by and leave without sightseeing. And another three or four weeks in Asia. You won't have time for America continent as well.

Northpool, Southpool and back to home. Maybe I would like to dodge also to Japan to capture Godzilla.. but then it's not straight line anymore. Other countries that maybe stay in on my way, I would just pass them even without looking.. I have no interest of them.. They don't have beautiful girls not to me nor to feed to Godzilla.

Let's do some math here 8) ! 80 days is about 11 weeks, so I can spend approximately 2 weeks in every continent.

I have this thing for :arrow: Italy, so I think I would start with it and :arrow: then I would visit all the 7 wonders of the world. :arrow: After that, I'll fly to Latin America. :arrow: I'll finish my trip in Africa to visit my grandfather who lives there. A Safari would be a great way to end the adventure. :idea:

Flying? Oh no, cruising only, missy. Or you can do it by using other means of transportation such as taking a train, cab, camel, donkey, horse, or you can walk. Flying is way too easy. :wink:

Fine, we'd bring the world to you by taking you to Vegas. It's in the US (one country down) and there are Paris (2 down), Italy (3 down), Egypt (4 down), Mandalay Bay (5 down) and some more I can't remember right now. You on your own in Africa, though. :twisted:

I thought maybe there are some beautiful women.. since that's only place I can imagine where hot chicks could hiding from my night vision thing.. But that's also why I chose not to go there. I afraid that if also there aren't any, then it means that there actually aren't any.. I could lost the meaning of life.

You can meet the Eskimos. I've heard it's an honor if you ask to sleep with their wives. :lol:

After thinking about it and thank you Lennye for your sweet offer, I've made my decision: I would make a tour around Europe. Maybe I would even stop by Tartu in Estonia and cross Hardi's face :lol:

You remind me of a certain character in a novel, recently made into a movie. He was mental.

What a coincidence! I'm a mental genius too!

PS. You don't think it would be wonderful to give a name to the gene of Beauty? Imagine you see a beautiful girl on street. And then say "wow she's surely have some gene of Hardi!!"

Anyway.. If it could be happen that I find gene of ugly, then I think I also have some ideas how to name that one. :twisted:
