Seems like a decent intro to that part of the world
7 continents and 51 countries (so far) in my "Around a Big World with a Small Bladder" quest.
North America: 39 of the 50 states of the USA
Europe: Netherlands, September 2006
South America: Argentina, January 2007
Antarctica: Antarctic Peninsula, January 2007 (cruise)
Africa: South Africa, June 2008
Australia: Sydney, Tasmania, etc. February, 2009 (cruise)
Asia: Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand, March 2009 (cruise)
I have so many!! My DH says that I want to go everywhere...but here goes
-Baltics (we've had it scheduled twice and had to cancel due to family emergencies, but I'm still determined to do this)
-Transatlantic on the QM2
--and many more Caribbean cruises, Med cruises, Northern Europe cruises
Iceland and Greenland
Have pretty much been everywhere else.
Continents visited: All 7 of 'em; snagged my final one in 1999.
Countries visited: 74 so far; first country visited was in 1976.
Cruises completed: 68 so far; first cruise was in 1978.
Oceans crossed: Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian BUT my Bucket List is still LONG!!!
Here's our bucket list:
-Panama Canal (already booked)
-South America (hopefully in 2014)
-SE Asia, with stops in Singapore, Hong Kong
-Eastern Med., including Istanbul
-Happy to return to Europe for land trip - cruise oneway and return by air. Just can't get enough!
-return to Australia and visit our Aussie friends.
btw, Borneo and South Asia is quite far apart. And as I am born in Borneo (Malaysia), I would definitely recommend both Sarawak and Sabah to anyone who wants to visit Borneo.
Yeah I probably shouldn't have lumped them together as I wouldn't mind doing a cruise to both areas.
July 2009 - Splendor of the Seas - Eastern Med (Venice, Mykonos, Santorini, Ephesus, Corfu, Dubrovnik)
April 2010 - Voyager of the Seas - Western Carib (Galveston, Cozumel, Costa Maya, Roatan)
June 2011 - Freedom of the Seas - Eastern Carib (Port Canaveral, CocoCay, St. Thomas, St. Maarten)
March 2012 - Serenade of the Seas - Southern Carib (San Juan, St. Thomas, St. Croix, Grenada, Antigua, St. Lucia)
June 2013 - Majesty of the Seas - Bahamas (Miami, Nassau, Cococay, Key West)
August 2013 - Vision of the Seas - Scandinavia & Russia (Copenhagen, Tallinn, St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Stockholm)
March 2014 - Adventure of the Seas - Southern Carib (San Juan, St. Thomas, St. Kitts, Aruba (CXL), Curacao (CXL), St Maarten, Antigua)
September 2014 - Navigator of the Seas - Western Carib (Galveston, Roatan, Belize City, Cozumel)
A ton! I've been to Europe before but never on a cruise. I think it would be fun to see ports I've never seen before through a cruise line. I definitely want to do Alaska and Asia. I think it would be awesome if most cruise ships visited Boracay in the Philippines. Those are my top three; after that, I'd like to visit Australia and South America. Basically... before I die, I'd like to go on every route we can!

Full transit of the canal for me. Christmas island for the wife. Retirement looms in 18 months, so should have both of those out of the way within the next 5 yrs and hopefully 1 or 2 others to boot, including the Fall Boston - Quebec City trip.
Also looking at chartering a crewed boat w/ friends to do Baltimore to Miami on the inland waterway at some point .
Decided early in life to be a miscreant and have succeded beyond my wildest dreams....
Baltics including St. Petersburg
Western Med including Morocco
We're already booked for Tahiti in 2014 and were planning on Alaska in 2015, but I think instead we're going to London (land based) in 2015, Australia/NZ in 2016, and France (land based) in 2017. I should probably change my signature.
