Ooooh choices, choices!!!
Where to go and what to see???
Ooooh, what ,where ,how and when?
:lol:

Seriously though, I wouldn't mind first having a trip to Owatonna,Minnesota.
Plus, I wouldn't mind going to Egypt to see my pet Sphinx to see how it's Pharoahing up, and see if my mighty great pyramid needs cleaning.I bet there have been spiders making their cobwebs here and there amongst my treasures.....pesky varmints!!

The poor pyramids are in need of some restoration work. You must have a nice hoard of gold somewhere that'd pay for the job imhotep!!??

A holiday anywhere in the world? Phew.... now that's difficult. I've done a lot of travelling in my time, but think it'd have to be Borneo.

I'd probably want to go to Australia, simply because it's the only continent I haven't visited, and I'd love to be able to go snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef.

That DOES sound nice. I can't get the hang on snorkelling though. Don't ask me why - but I just don't like it.

The only thing I cannot do very well, is open my eyes underwater.
They sting like mad if I do.So, I have to wear goggles unfortunately!! :doh:

Awww, lol - well I suppose you'd HAVE to if you went snorkelling, otherwise there'd be no point, as you wouldn't see anything!
I agree with you that salt water can make your eyes sting, and also chlorinated water, but when I swam in a lake of natural mountain water in Tenerife, there was none of that. Everything just looked kind of greenish though, so my eyeballs were probably covered in algae microbes instead!

Lol!! I don't think you'd have thought of doing that at this place. It was a touristy stop, on the way back down Mount Teide - and dozens of people stop there every day to cool off, so it isn't exactly a private place.

If you fancy skinny dipping - go to Gran Canaria - one of the other Canary Islands which, on a clear day, you can see from the top of Teide I believe.

There you find the beautiful Maspolomas sands. It's like a desert as you traipse across to the sea, with huge dunes.
Once you come out onto the flat, there's a nudist area there - where you can swim and sunbathe in the altogether for as long as you want!

As the saying goes in the Carry On films.....oooooooooh Matron!!
There's nothing like frolicking in the sand dunes,and skinny dipping!!!!
I'm a private person though,so you ain't gonna see me skinny dipping in public.
Lol!

The beautiful Maspolomas sands sounds like a nice place though.

Apparently they're the tail-end of the Sahara hun. The dunes consist of some huge hills and craters of sand, which takes you a good while to cross. For every three steps you take, you slide back two!

But once you get down to the sea .... ahhhhh ......

But then you have to go back again ..... !!!!

It can get so stifling, that you'd be GRATEFUL of being able to skinny dip, I assure you!
