Not everyone wants to travel the world, but most people can identify at least one place in the world they’d like to visit before they die. Where is that place for you, and what will you do to make sure you get there?

Well, this one is an easy one, as I was just having this discussion a few weeks ago. I have several places I would like to visit, both near and far. My latest fascination is Iceland. I have always had a fondness for volcanos and such and Iceland has this and much, much more. I even looked into flights to the island. Not an easy place to get to, but I think I might set foot there one day.
Next is actually several places: Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand, including a visit to the Great Barrier Reef.
Finally, and perhaps least likely, is Japan. The language and cultural differences make it a bit more intimidating than the others, but it holds a certain allure.
As for what I am doing to get there? Well, one action I take every day is to speak with people from these locations. I have several people I follow on Twitter and Facebook. I try to speak with them as often as I can and love learning small tidbits of understanding from them. As we have seen from our trips to visit family in Sicily, having a friend or family member to guide you around and unfamiliar country can make a trip magical. You lose a bit of your fear and tentativeness, engage with the local people and often discover things no tourist ever would.
