Thinking maybe Jordan, (Petra, etc), then deke into Israel, (haven't been there for 31 years), and revisit the old city of Jerusalem.

- Would also like to see Orangutans in the wild; and maybe go back to Sri Lanka, (this'd be the 4th time), and definitely Zambia and/or Namibia.

Greek Islands

Turkey (Istanbul & Ephesus)

Personally I'd swap Botswana or Tanzania for Kenya.......I was in Kenya ~27 years ago and it was 'overdone' then.....African Disneyland.

Favorite trips were Italy hill towns bike ride, New Orleans except in summer, Kruger natl park out of Johannesburg and Aus Great Barrier Reef. And of course sonoma Russian river. Dissapointments - any big city including Paris.

I haven't done any traveling for pleasure since getting out of the Navy. Several places I went as a sailor that I would like to go back to.

Toulon France.

Skaramagas Greece. Subway to Athens is just a couple of miles up the mountain. Oros Egaleo is a famous mountain just north of the harbor.

Barcelona, Valencia and Palma de Mallorca Spain.

Ceiba Puerto Rico.

Cuba. I spent a good deal of time in GITMO. Would like to see Havana and the rest of the country.

The other places I would like to visit are from my novels. A barge trip up the Ems River from Emden Germany {East Frisia} would be at the top of my list. But the ports of Ireland, Scotland, Iceland, Newfoundland and North Carolina would be nice too. It is scary though. For years I have visited these places in 1718 {with the help of google earth}. Seeing them now might ruin it for me.

Any traveling I do, I want to stay away from tourists. Living in Florida, I have placed them just below no seeums {sand flea} in the scale of things I could do without.

Tibet and Nepal, but there's always the risk of altitude sickness at 16,000 - 20,000+ feet above sea level.
