      I went to Alaska on a cruise, and it was gorgeous. It truly is an unforgettable experience. The pure nature that is there is just awe-inspiring. Definitely go when you have the chance. It's definitely worth it.

      Not many places. Europe is way too far, so is Asia but it isn't interesting to me anyhow. When in Europe I also don't want to go any of the places my wife would like such as Paris so we just don't go.

      In the US:

      Entire East Coast down to SC with the exception of VT. Also OH, TX, CA, HI. If you add in simply driving through then also IN, IL, IA, NE, WY, UT, NV.

      Outside the US:

      Jamaica
      Mexico

      Also:
      Canada if you count Niagra Falls, I don't.
      Holland if you count that my family lived there until I was about 6mo old. I also don't.
      Take my fusion hybrid, please! Blue 2013 titanium package, goes to the first person that will take it for only what is owed. PM me if serious.

      They're steppin' on my rhythm and they're stealin' all my lines
