What's the next country you want to visit?

Where do I not want to go?

For one, I want to go back to India. That's where I spent the summer (which you may not know if you didn't know me pre-Vox) and I loved it. I was in Bangalore and it kills me that I can't go to Doors of Perception or my friend Vinay's wedding. But it's just not going to happen right now. I really only saw Bangalore when I was there, deciding to stay put and love where I was rather than getting frustrated by traveling alone. I want to go back for a long time.

I've traveled extensively and lived in Germany, Holland, France, Italy, and India and have spent substantial time in London. There are places I've never been, however. I've always wanted to go to Vienna. I've never been to Greece or the countries in the former Yugoslavia — I'd love to see Croatia and Slovenia (and Ljubljana in particular).

Russia! The Trans-siberian or Trans-mongolian! I would love to see Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand. I've been to China and very briefly, Japan, but would love to return.

I've never been to South America and save for passing through, Mexico, but Enrique's family lived there for a while. Since his native language is Spanish, it opens up communication for traveling and that will be wonderful. Birke and Darci have shared their accounts of Argentina and it sounds wonderful, my host mom in Germany enchanted me with discussions of Chile. I'd love, also, to visit Brazil.

When I went to India, I had actually hoped I might find a way to Africa. Uganda was of interest. My dad's been to Ghana and I've always wanted to see it. I know that Namibia and South Africa are stunning and I loved the travel stories of my friends Dave and Jo as they traveled across Africa in a Range Rover. Amazing.

And of course, there's Australia and New Zealand. I don't even know where to start. But I want to go.

Where do I not want to go.
