We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Haven't seen one on the board yet. No domestic stuff. Where you been?
Argentina, Chili, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Mexico, Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, India, Nepal, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, England, Germany, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Holland, Ireland, Scotland, Czech Republic.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Greece, Monaco, Japan, China, Taiwan, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Mexico, Canada, Panama, Brazil, Australia, and Russia.
The next trips I want to take are to India, Argentina, and a couple places in Africa.
My two favorites along with Vietnam.
Nepal if talking about just stuff to do(adventure travel)
If you do it right, China is amazing. Just don't take a completely pre-arranged tour, they won't show you anything interesting.
Great thread. I've only been to Cancun Mex & B.C & Toronto Can, but am looking to go to places named ITT in the future. Would be nice if some of you shared your experiences & gave some info on other places & what makes going worth while.
Never do. Best way to absorb no culture and get stuck with unadventurous people from your own country, IMO.
Too many to give details. Willing to share thoughts if you have a specific one though.
Ireland & Vietnam
Austria, Germany, Switzerland (my favorite), Liechtenstein, Jamaica & the Bahamas for me.
Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
Telling myself it's not as hard as it seems - Led Zeppelin
Ireland, England, France, USA, Dominican Republic, Belgium, Italy, Greece
Canada, Mexico. Bahamas. Virgin Islands, Turks and Caicos, Bermuda
Could have gone to Europe with the family a few years ago for a month, but I had some fishing to do in Florida.
This is going to sound so ridiculous, but I went to Ireland for a few days during a longer trip to England, and I honestly remember getting on the plane to Dublin, landing in Dublin, and then nothing but a few bits and pieces until I woke up with the worst hangover of my life on the plane back to London. Turning 18-year-old kids loose in Europe is a dangerous idea.
I will let someone else do Ireland, since I have only been to one place(family vacation). They do love Guinness and Americans though, so that is always a bonus.
Vietnam has the best food of just about anywhere I have been. I ate Pho' every day for about a month and a half.
Temples and monks are awesome. Buddha's everywhere and of all different shapes and sizes. (me in front of giant Buddha below)
Cu Chi tunnels were pretty cool if you like history. Seeing all the primitive traps and the size of the tunnels these dudes lived in was amazing. I went about 50 yards in one before my back was killing me.
Also the Vietnam War Museum. One of the biggest incidences of irony I have seen. This museum used to be named the "American War Crime Museum", yet every toilet and sink in the place is "American Standard". Got a laugh out of that. Really cool to see the other side of the story told. Agent Orange exhibit was really sad. (Saigon I think)
Hoi Anne is a badass town. Sleepy little town with great markets and food. We did a cooking class there that was great too. Did Christmas here, and it was amazing.
In the north we did Halong Bay which is a must. You take ships called "Junks" on cruises through the bays which contain 1000's of small islands. Kayaking in Halong was cool as well.
Scuba diving in Nha Trang was good, but not as good as some other places I have been(Red Sea, Thailand).
Sapa is a mountain town we did some cool hikes around before crossing to Laos.
Awesome place and culture. Travel can suck. Unless you are flying, which we didn't at all, then you can expect a 2 hour bus to take 9 hours easy.

True. At least in Ireland is one of the few Euro places that is completely accepting of obnoxious drunk Americans, maybe even supportive of them.
