Mine is an easy one. It's the place where I was born and raised. Las Vegas. :).

But if I had to choose, I'd say Rome. Rome was pretty cool.

A jungle in Southeast Asia. Maybe the ruins of ancient Babylon or Mira Flores Lock on the Panama Canal.

The Great Wall of China. I think about the only things that might top that for me, if I ever manage to get to see them, would be the Pyramids or Machu Pichu...

Callanish, on the Isle of Lewis. The Shimba Hills in Kenya were impressive too.

Which is a temple on top of a maountain in Chaing Mai.

Or London. I still get excited every time I go to London.

I'm going to Rajasthan for xmas, I'm assured that it is very cool indeed.

The coolest probably Siberia but it was summer not winter while I was there. The coldest I experienced was about -31C in Moscow.

-31 C isn't bad. I've experienced -41 C in Edmonton, but it was calm. It was far worse there at -35 with a strong wind blowing.

DisneyWorld.

I'll be there in about 12 hours from now(4th time). I'm a big kid. :D

disneyworld sucks. :)

they don't have enough scary rides. so I usually just ride space mountain over and over. This is great late at night when there are no lines. Just ride it like 20 times in one hour.

I remember going back to my hotel room (this was disneyland actually, not disneyworld). Everything was spinning for like the next hour. :D

I've never been anywhere cool.

This is somehow unsurprising.

Don't you find the HUGE military installations detract a bit from the otherwise serene landscape?

I lived up there for a winter, it was no fucking fun at all!!!

the top of mount etna was pretty cool

being in the freezing cold and walking through snow at a height above the clouds, yet being able to rub the soil away and find burning hot rock was quite bizarre

Not counterglow.

I'd say on top of a mountian in Norway.

Asilah on Morocco's Atlantic coast, or the Great Barrier Reef, or Alert Bay off Vancouver Island.

Valley of the Kings was pretty wicked. As was Hiroshima (not cool, more sad really)
