    Hey all,

    I'm interested to hear which countries would you be visiting this year or would like to visit this year.

    2014 will be my year to travel.

    First I'm planning to go to the Philippines in April and might do an additional 1 month tour around Southeast Asian Countries.

    The rest of the year is open season and would like to get some ideas on where to go.

    Just created a list and want to get your votes and additional suggestions you may have...

    Are you actually staying or just counting the 30 minute Hopper connection as a visit?

    Been the, done that, and I count it. I haven't done the math, but proportionally (by size, population), I suspect I have seen more of those countries and spend more time there than in China when I walked around in Shanghai for four days ;)

    Doesn't mean I don't want to go back and see more.

    Getting off the plane and walking through the terminal doesn't count IMO. If it works for you, that's great.

    I have no plans as of yet, but am planning on taking a long trip and don't know where to go next! Thinking about Indonesia possibly.

    Currently in Bahamas, heading towards Jamaica. June Australia, Timor-Leste, PNG, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, Tuvalu, Kiribati and hopefully Nauru if "Our Airlines" can figure out when and where they are flying. Maybe to island in Feb. (northern lights). After that too far out.

    Thanks for the response all! Keep the suggestions coming! This is great. Already getting some excellent ideas! It looks like Germany is the #1 voted item on the list.

    Booked or done so far through March:
    Brazil, Argentina, USA, France, South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Russia

    For the rest of the year nothing is confirmed, but, highly likely expectations: UK, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, UAE (Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Ras al Khaimah).
    Otherwise it will be whatever I invent to find a way to escape World Cup madness in Rio de Janeiro.
