well for me it would have to be to Japan, di you know that
In 1989, Emperor Akihito became Japan's 125th emperor. He is married to Empress Michiko, the first empress who did not come from the nobility. i think this is interesting because since the first emperor was enthroned in the year 660 BC. It is a commonly accepted fact that emperors have reigned over Japan for more than 1500 years, and that they have all descended from the same imperial family.

Can you imagine what their family tree looks like?

Now i know that this might not be real interesting to alot of people but you learned something new didn't you.

Alaska, is very nice it can get very cold up there but the cold there is different than say colorado, most people go outside w/o a coat in 0 temps. they drive on roads that are covered in ice, it gets so cold in fact that the ice starts getting tacky and you can get traction. also they have some of the best hunting and fishing in the world.

I would like to go to the French Caribbean Islands and stay for a week or two. I have been to the Bahamas once and loved it but I think I would like the French ones even better (clothing optional beaches...) I will make it...

good luck with getting there, soon i hope it is always nice to get out and about around the world. just a little tid bit about the french caribbean islands.

Christopher Columbus landed on Guadeloupe on November 4, 1493. Though originally called Karukéra (Island of Beautiful Waters) by the Carib Indians, Columbus named the island after the famous sanctuary of Santa Maria de Guadalupe de Estremadura.

In its official status, the Départment of Guadeloupe is an archipelago of French possessions. This archipelago includes the islands of St. Barthélemy, St. Martin, Les Saintes, La Désirade, Marie-Galante and Guadeloupe itself. In practice however, the name Guadeloupe simply refers to the butterfly-shaped island.

Columbus sighted Martinique in 1493, but did not go ashore until another voyage in 1502. At that time, the island was inhabited by the Carib Indians who had already exterminated the Arawaks. Columbus named the island Martinica in honor of St. Martin. The French arrived to claim the island and begin permanent settlement there in 1635.

If topless is what you are looking for Martinique has the largest number of them in the chain of islands

here is a tidbit about the Caribbean Sea:

The Caribbean Sea is the world's fifth largest body of water. With a total area of 970,000 square miles, it is slightly bigger than the Mediterranean. The region's islands are incredibly varied, ranging from lush and tropical to arid semi-desert. The climate is ideal, with year-round temperatures averaging around 80 degrees F.
