Favourite places to holiday?
I have never been further than the UK and as part of losing weight I would love to travel one day...the new me and all that.
So if this should happen I was wondering where and what should I go and see?
I would love to hear what is your favourite places.

You will need to go somewhere hot so you can show your new body off. I would go to the Greek islands as they are always hot and plenty of bars and clubs if you like that sort of thing. Always plenty of sight seeing aswell.
Hi Mini, I just got back from a place called CabaRoig, North Costa Blanca, Spain.....absolutely amazing!!! Loved puerto rico in canaries as well, but my absolute fave was New York, even though I was only there for 2 days!! I'd love to go to Jamaica and am gonna buy myself a holiday there for my 30th birthday if noone else brings me!!
Exactly two years ago, I was in New Zealand (Sept 28th - Nov 11th 2004). We decided to throw caution to the wind and 'have an adventure'. So we rented a big camper van for six weeks and just toured around NZ doing some amazing stuff.
We went whale watching in the South Pacific, gold mining in the Southern Alps, camped alongside a volcano, trekked up to a glacier and countless other things.
The only thing that spoiled it for me was the fact I was so overweight. That stopped me from doing some of the things I wanted to (I'd have loved to have gone on a trek on horseback for instance) and it also means that out of the 500+ photos we took, I'm in just three - not 300 but 3 singular (and I hate all of them!). I've vowed to go back one day and do the things I wasn't able to back then.
I know it's not your average holiday destination but as a 'lifetime experience' it's pretty darned hard to beat!
we went to Brisbane Australia last year , i swam with sharks (unintentionally) walked on the most amazin beaches, visited steve irwins australia zoo, (not like a zoo at all, more like a wildlife park) attempted to surf lol, snorkelled on the great barrier reef with the entire cast of finding nemo, and it too was amazing,
I love Dubai, went with 2 girlfriends a couple of years ago and have just booked to go again next April.
Love the safe, crime free atmosphere. The luxury hotels and great service.
We spent a lot of time just chilling but also went to Wild Wadi (water park, like no other!), dune bashing in a 4X4, afternoon tea at the Burj Al Arab, shopping (lots), took in the sights and smells of the souks.
Also really love Corfu, always feels like going home as it's so welcoming. Stick to the North of the island though.

Ooooh, I like Italy. I have never been further south than Padua, but how pretty and what lovely people!
Love New York - energy is every where and there is just so much to see! Relaxing hols, Bahamas do it for me, wall to wall cocktails and lots of blue sea and sky, gorgeous.
Going on my first cruise in 12 days, so will report in on that soon! Love

May 17th 2011 - The fight back to health.:
May to December 2011 28lbs lost.
Weight gained between December 2011-March 2012 = 9lbs
March 26th - Back with a vengeance!
New day for weigh-ins- Mondays.
Start weight 15.11
April 2nd - 1lb lost = 15.10
April 9th - 2lbs lost = 15.8
April 16th -1lb lost = 15.7
April 23rd - STS = 15.7 = acceptable!
I have to agree with PH about the UK. We often don't appreciate what's right on our own doorsteps!
North Wales is spectacular with its desolate, haunting scenery in Snowdonia national park. Travelling up Mt Snowdon on the little train is a great experience!
I love Scotland too (being half Scottish makes me a bit biased perhap! ). Standing on the mountain Anoch Mor overlooking Ben Nevis is a breathtaking experience and there are hundreds of unspoilt gems such as waterfalls, lochs and glens to explore. A friend of mine regularly takes a break in the North of Scotland and watches whales, dolphins and seals just off the shore.
Of course, if hot weather and relaxing on a beach is your holiday of choice then perhaps the UK wouldn't be top of your list but that sort of holiday would drive me nuts: I like exploring and 'doing' - so I guess it's down to what you consider to be 'a holiday'

There is loads to chose from and I can see from your post how much you love all these places.
I am an arm chair traveler and I love all the travel programmes and documentaries.
But then that is TV and it is nice to get fed back from people who have actually been to these places.
Keep them coming as I want to hear more...
Everything that has been mentioned so far I would like to do...I would really need to get over my fear of flying and get a move on as I would love to travel.
One of my dreams is to do Route 66 anyone ever done that?

You don't state where you live but why don't you try a short flight with one of the many low cost airlines. I can recommend Barcelona, Prague or if you're really nervous - Dublin is only about 35 minutes of actual flying time (even though it's timetabled as one hour).
The one and only time I've ever flown was to New Zealand and back in 2004 ..... Talk about in at the deep end!
(Luckily I loved it - which is a good job because it's a 24 hour flight each way!)
If I could choose anywhere in the world to go back to, it would be Anguilla in the Caribbean.
Simply the most marvellous place on earth!
Welcome to Anguilla
I went to South Africa a few years ago & fell in love with the place.
We are lucky as we stayed & travelled around with family. I went in & played with an 8 month old lion cub, who was going to get bred to have cubs that would get released into the wild. We saw & did some amazing things.
I am hoping to go back this time next year (new baby will be about 6 months) to visit family again & also a very good friend who emigrated last Tuesday.
