1) What is your favorite mode of travel? (Car, train, plane, etc).  Car. I get the most sense of having traveled whatever distance we've gone that way, and I have the most control in what I do along the way. But flying is fine, too. (especially when travelling overseas. :p) I just hate being stuck next to some chatterbox or some hyperactive kid.
2) Where is the northernmost place you've traveled? Copenhagen, Denmark. The southernmost? Naples, Italy
3) What is the last place you visited for the first time? Watkins Mill State Park, Lawson, MO
4) Of all the places you've traveled, which is your favorite? I can't decide! I'll go with the Pacific Northwest. :p Or the Redwood Forest. Or Switzerland.
5) Where would you most like to travel to next? West. :p

These questions came just in time - I am leaving for vacation next Wednesday.

1) What is your favorite mode of travel? (Car, train, plane, etc).
Car, if we are going on family trip and my father is the one driving. I love seeing nature as we go and that we can stop when we want to. But if someone other than my father is driving, car drops to the bottom of my list.
And for long trips I prefer planes - because I love looking out of the window and seeing clouds from above. I foresee much fighting for window-seat with my sister next week. LOL

2) Where is the northernmost place you've traveled? The southernmost?
Northernmost - Ruka, Finland, where I went skiing last year.
Southernmost would be Gagra in Abkhazia, back when I was three. Don't remember much from that time unfortunately.

3) What is the last place you visited for the first time?
Ruka.

4) Of all the places you've traveled, which is your favorite?
Ruka again, but then I didn't travel much.

5) Where would you most like to travel to next?
Japan. It is my dream, that I doubt will ever come true. But I can still dream about it. More realistic - Paris, where I hope to go next year.

I hope you can go someday! It is an expensive place to get to/travel in, but there are ways to make it affordable; there are a lot of clean youth/backpacker hostels for fairly low cost per night, for example. It is not difficult to navigate the large cities without knowing the language, either. It's so worth it to visit, especially if you have an interest in it.

Ha, I recommended these questions a while ago but it turns out they were posted at a good time for me, too!

1) What is your favorite mode of travel? (Car, train, plane, etc).
Planes are the only way to travel to a lot of places, but as far as the experience of traveling goes I really love trains. You don't have to concentrate on driving yourself, there's no bitchy TSA regulations, you can see the scenery from ground-level (so you get more of a feel for what you are traveling through), there are usual on-board bathrooms, and in every country but the US most of them are quite time and cost effective.

2) Where is the northernmost place you've traveled? The southernmost?
Northernmost is northern England. Southernmost is a tie between Okinawa and Florida. My range of north to south is not very large. I can't wait until I go to Australia and get to see the southern hemisphere!

3) What is the last place you visited for the first time?
The Akiyoshido cave system in central Yamaguchi prefecture of Japan. I live in the prefecture but the caves were new to me.

4) Of all the places you've traveled, which is your favorite?
I asked this question, and yet it's really hard for me to answer! Maybe Miyajima, Japan. It's so beautiful!

5) Where would you most like to travel to next?
I'm traveling to South Korea next weekend! So I'm excited about that. I'm also making plans to visit Australia in the next year. It's a big year for travel for me.

1) What is your favorite mode of travel? (Car, train, plane, etc). Uh probably a car even though I get motion sick (I take pills most of the time)I can at least stop to pee somewhere, I refuse to pee on a plane, and I will only pee on a train if I'm drunk.
2) Where is the northernmost place you've traveled? The southernmost? I think northernmost is when I went to Niagara Falls in Ontario, Canada. And Southernmost probably either Punta Cana (Dominican Republic) or the U.S. Virgin islands. (Sadly I don't know which one is more south)
3) What is the last place you visited for the first time? I think California in 2007.
4) Of all the places you've traveled, which is your favorite? I liked California a lot (San Diego) but I also really liked Charleston, South Carolina. Oh and New York City but I live 40 minutes away so I don't consider that "traveling"
5) Where would you most like to travel to next? I really would love to go to Australia but realistically wherever we *hopefully* go for Spring Break this year.
