    If you could go on holiday anywhere where would you go and why?

    Inspired by the North Korean topic.

    I would love to see the abandoned city of Prypyat if i have spelled that right, i have a deep fascination for the whole thing, I'm old enough to remember Chernobyl and the old childhood fears, hold your breath when crossing the train tracks as those trains you hear at 2am are full of culled sheep from the fallout and the carriages are known to leak on the track.

    I don't have the fascination with Fukushima so i think its both the disaster mixed with the alien vista of communism, that area with the mix and subsequent abandonment and overgrowth like a forgotten world.

    Maybe one day I'll get my son a passport and we will go, I've only ever left the country once and I'm getting on for 40

    Hey son, you know how you've always wanted to go on holiday? Well guess what, we're going to a scene of nuclear fallout!

    Why are you crying?

    Agree that place is awesome, my mum says I'd love it.

    For the record my mum has been all over the world, shes in her 70s now shes always been the sort to have few possessions and spend all her cash traveling, her last holiday last year was whale watching in northern Canada and she stayed at a tiger sanctuary in India he time before that, so forgive my refferences to my mum a lot in this thread.

    I'd never go America (not that part anyway) out of principle but the route by any other name I'm sure is a great thing to behold, personally I've always had a longing to be "the road warrior" i doubt a change in name would affect that feeling in that route.

    I just want to go to Argate.

    Which part would you go to? It's went from Chicago to California and cut through about 10 states so it covers a fair chunk of the country. You don't strike me a Florida type!

    It's not just a change in name, Route 66 was (mostly) a two land road that cut through 'mom & pop' country. It's been replaced by a 5 lane interstate highway miles from anything of any relevance outside of out of town shopping malls. You couldn't compare the two experiences.

    Brisbane (to see relatives I haven't seen for decades), but probably never go as it is too far.

    Mauritius for me .. One of the few places I would revisit for a holiday .

    Did you get a last minute deal somewhere?

    Love historical places - thankfully this island is steeped in them, also love scenery - never ever understood the desire to lay on a beach for two weeks.

    It's nice to dream about all those facinating places abroad, but sometimes we need to wake up and realise peeps from all over the world dream about all the facinating places right here in the UK - places most of us haven't ever visited in our whole lives - despite being just a few hours drive from them.

    Virgin Islands.

    Never heard of that before but sounds really interesting.

    Fairly decent write up below for anyone else interested and sounds like the Captain wasn't having you on:

    People said slave labour died decades ago but it was still in existence in 1980's because I endured it
