I have had the good fortune of having been able to travel to all of the places listed except the Irish mystic, St. Patrick. I have had the good fortune of having both the time and the income to travel to 160 of the 196 countries recognized by the US State Dept and the UN. and spend time at most of the "got to see" locations from Lhasa Tibet to Antarctica and from The Valley of the Kings, in Egypt to Manchu Pinchu in Peru and almost everything in between. Most of it by back packing.
My favorite trip started by flying into Las Vegas getting my rental car and getting out of Vegas. For the next seven days I visited Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon NP, Capitol Reef NP, Arches NP, Canyonlands NP and Monument Valley Tribal Park. The sights and colors were incedible as well as each being very different one from another. Each night I would review the pictures I had taken that day and fall asleep wondering if the next days visit could possibly match what I had already seen. After eight glorious days and over 750 photos with nary a bad one in the bunch I returned home tired but relaxed and refreshed.
If traveling the world is a religious experience then I will pass. My travels are always a trip to get away from people.
Strange no picture for Mecca were Abraham and ishmael build the house of God and millions of pilgrims visit every year ... why keep ignoring muslims and there religion ?!! just a question I hope some one have a reasonable fair answer away from anti Islamizes.
