Thanks for the welcomes. I have been to Seoul and Tokyo and wouldn't mind going back for lengthier visits (imagine a LYBMer picking places like that to be interested in!). I also want to get to Europe and visit (not just Western, but Central and Eastern). I can do the touristy places, but I want to dig a little deeper as well, get hooked into some of the places I visit. I have found my interest in history growing as I get older, so that may guide me. I have no planned itinerary yet, but I will develop a plan as the time gets close. Don't need to do everything at once, more important is being able to spend quality time there. With careful planning, I can keep the costs down, relatively speaking, but then again, in retirement, I will be much more flexible, which helps cost-wise. Anyway, almost any place is on the table (I don't do war zones, though). Domestically, I've been to many places in the US, but two places that I haven't been to that intrigue me are Alaska and New England.
