    Hmm, I actually voted for two seemingly contradictory things -- "the world is too big" and "if I love a place I'll go back many times." There's one beach destination that I've gone every year since I was born, and my yearly trip there is sacred. But when I'm planning my other trips for the year (usually one domestic and one international), I almost always look for someplace new to go, preferably a new country or a new region. There's way too many countries to see for me to start repeating them yet!

    I like revisiting old places because that is easy and I pretty much know what to do and expect. I also like new places to see different things, just that it takes a lot more effort. Like what I am going through now!

    I prefer visit place only once because why see place what you already had seen. In this time you can see new places and maybe it will be better than last one

    BUT, there are still a lot of other places on my *list* so I'm in the process of adding new right now..........hoping for Brazil sometime soon! I have a long list of "to go" but I'm lucky cause I have a long list of "have been" too. And I have to get back to NZ. Flight is a killer, duration wise, but SOOOOOOO worth it. Most beautiful place on EARTH. Because it is all of earth's bounty in one country - simply magnificent.

    Like Soliteyah, well it wouldn't let me vote twice but I had two perspectives.

    If it's just for a week to crash out, then it's familiar places since young; Mallorca, Canary Isles, Red Sea, Beaches in Spain, Malta.
    If it's for enjoyment of a place, then it's the cities and towns of Europe, and one day, Australia and NZ.
    If it's to pack in a lot of places, then it's a cruise to N. France and N. Spain, Norway , Iceland.
    And if it's for OH- then it's any place where he can snorkel, and there's a roller coaster!!!!
