Following on from the "what places would you never visit again?" thread ...

You have been told you will only be allowed to travel - for leisure - to 3 places outside the U.K. During the whole of the rest of your lifetime and you have to choose those 3 places NOW.

I'll start!

Serrania de Ronda - Andalucia (home from home, wonderful scenery, lovely wine, food, climate)
Venice - amazing place
Seville - my favourite city in the whole world. So elegant and beautiful.

Good question! Definitely New York, I have been many times and will never get bored. I also love Paris and Florence but if I can only go to 3 places I don't want only cities, so I will pick Paris because it is more conveniently located, my French is much better than my Italian and I love patisserie. Maybe the Swiss Alps for my third? Nice and varied, you get good walks, boat trips, pretty villages and cable cars (I love a good cable car). And chocolate.

Good choices bluechameleon

I loved New York and would be sad not to be able to go again but the thought of never seeing Venice again ... well ...

Hoping to go later this year. Its sublime, what an amazing place 😍❤️.

For my cities, marrakech, Venice, Paris.

I wonder how many posters will stick to 3 answers instead of listing all the places they just love so much! 😆

1) Languedoc-Roussillon - family there & love it.
2) Bora Bora - just beautiful
3) Miami - never been but want to go

Some really interesting ones. I wanted to go for one city, one beautiful
Region and one island - well Venice is kind of an island.
At least that way there would be some variety!

Slovenia- lovely mountains, lakes, pretty capital. Very green and pretty, not too crowded. Friendly people.
Asia for amazing beaches- I’ll say Bali as I’ve never been.
Japan- never been but it looks fascinating. Completely different culture.

Oops realised I did countries rather than narrow it down-
Tokyo for my city.
Lake bohinj for countryside.
Semi yak beach in Bali for my beach hit.

Everyone is being really disciplined - itching to mention 3 more which would be on the list if my top choices were unavailable for any reason - but won't set a bad example!

Curious on the Belgian Ardennes - maybe I have missed out! Have passed through and found it a bit monoculture - you have obviously found some treasures there. Do tell ...

Another vote for Seville.

New York.

And to be honest I can't think of anywhere else I've been I would rush back to.

Jerseygirl12 Sun 25-Jul-21 19:00:26

Cape Town (my fave place in the world)
Thailand, I’ve never been but would love to go.
Australia, haven’t been but would like to go.

New York

I've been to Ibiza (to the non clubbing part) once three years ago and for some reason I'm yearning to go back this year. I just felt at peace there. I understand why it is the white isle but couldn't explain it.

I did 40 hours in New York and got married there! I loved it so much.

London just breathes life in to my northern parochial soul.

Just walking and looking and eating and stopping occasionally.
