Question of the Week: Where is your favorite place on earth or someplace you dream of visiting during your lifetime?

2010 April 19

With Earth Day approaching, now is a good time to reflect on the wonders and pleasures Mother Earth provides us: majestic mountain ranges, beaches and ocean cliffs, and city parks providing a green break in urban life.  There truly is “something for everyone” or should we say “somewhere for everyone”.  Tell us about your favorite place on earth, or someplace you’d like to experience during your lifetime and why.

Where is your favorite place on earth or someplace you dream of visiting during your lifetime?

Each week we ask a question related to the environment. Please let us know your thoughts as comments. Feel free to respond to earlier comments or post new ideas. Previous questions.

    I would like to travel to see the beautiful beaches and the beautiful marine life and corral reefs along Puerto Rico, and places in Mexico that have white sandy beaches…like Puerta Vauerta (I been told) never had the opportunity to go as yet.

    Tobago is a small island in the Southern Caribbean. It is the smaller island of a twin island nation – that being the nation of Trinidad and Tobago. Tobago is special for:

    * its breathtaking natural beauty

    * its crystal clear blue seas

    * its white and grey sand beaches

    * its wildlife, history, culture, weather

    * its resorts, luxury hotels, villas, vacation homes

    * its restaurants and entertainment

    * an emphasis on education resulting in a high literacy rate of over 98%

    * its low crime rate, and the easy friendliness of its people.

    If you want to go on vacation where the sun is always out all year round, where everything is as exotic as it should be, then Puerto Rico is the country spot you’re looking for. You’ll have the most satisfying trip you need here because they have everything a vacationer tourist needs. Might it be unceasing swimming and or surfing we bet you’ll have your fill and more.

    I have many favorite places, but my favorite in the whole world is New York because there is so much to do there. I love going to the huge Toys “R” Us store in Times Square.

    At the moment it has to be Barcelona Spain . It’s one of those enchanting cities that have everything. Ok, it’s not very big but it packs a big punch!

    surely, i missed visiting this site during that week, but better late than never! i really love being in a wild setting, living at the mercy of God, in the nights filled with sounds of roaring lions, laughing hyenas and chirping birds in the morning… what does that sound like…a typical African Safari Holiday
