Antarctica is also on my list; it just isn't the ten highest.

If you go to Chicago, be forewarned that parking downtown can be impossible to find. My favorite thing about Chicago is this grocery store in Niles on Gold Road, close to a Taco Bell. It has all the makings of a potential Iron Chef episode.

Well, my plans are to attend UIC once I graduate this upcoming school year. I'm gonna be amazed by many things in Chicago...I'm from a very small town...the population in the nearest town is 508...the population where I live is maybe 40. So...I'll be amazed.

Here's some more info for you on Chicago. If I am heading for someplace north of Chicago, it is quicker to just go straight through downtown Chicago rather than use the Tri-state, as traffic is often stalled due to the many toll plazas on the Tristate. However, I never go through Chicago during rush hours. Also, no matter which evening you may head into Chicago, traffic will often be at a standstill due to so many people trying to come into the city for its nightlife.

Tamisita, if you come to Chicago, we will HAVE to go out on the town sometime! I love it.

As far as places to go back, I have to say Nassau and Seattle are tops on the list. Well, right now Philadelphia would be, but that's just so I get that job.

1 Scotland

Having been to 42 of the 50 states, just tell me more of your interests, and I can probably tell you the perfect place for you. I'd imagine that you'd like Seattle.

Why do you imagine I would like Seattle?

I love to walk in dark, silent places, woods with huge oak-trees and just think. I like sitting on benches reading poetry. I like swimming, but not in the ocean. I'm afraid of large amounts of water. I love dancing, or just sitting, drinking wine. I love jazz, but the slow type. I am also fond of metal and rock, so if the place has some kind of metal/goth-nightclub, I'd be very happy and content. I'm not so fond of crowded places or overly large cities. Oslo is too big for me. I'm afraid of humans in general.
I love nature. I love to walk in large fields covered in flowers, and to have picnic in the open. I am very romantic... That can be a problem sometimes. :(

Seattle has a similar social climate to Norway. Save for the fact its a big city, it has many of the features you like. Washington has beautiful scenery, and Seattle is the home of grunge rock and Starbucks coffee. If being in a big city is a real hold up, then Maine might be a good place for you. Lots of woods, lots of beauty, and a laid back attitude. Plus, you are relatively close enough to Boston to get some of its culture.

As a Pisces, I'm sometimes more romantic-minded than the women I'm interested in, so I know what it's like to be overly romantic.

I'm a Leo, I shouldn't be so romantic, or afraid of people. I'm weird.

Ahhh! I've read too much Stephen King to go to Maine!

Well, I guess you have to make a Stand somewhere concerning that.

Sorry, I'm getting carried away. :rimshot:

Then, maybe you'd like Milwaukkee/Green Bay. Those cities are not as large, and Wisconsin has beuatiful outdoors as well.

Hmm... I'll do some research. Sounds nice, though.

I can think of a few good reasons why Seattle pretty much rocks. It's not a big, big city. It's actually kinda small, but bigger than any other city in the northwest. I've been all over the US (except the deep south) and I settled on Seattle because of the people, the climate, night life and all the fun there is here. Starbucks is from here, true, but only the yuppies around here are proud to admit that. Oh, and there's Ballard, the Norwegian area of town..

if I ever go to US... I don't go to find Norway...

If I ever go abroad I don't go to find Norway either. It's better to stay at home, then...

Then just don't go to EPCOT. :D

Of course, wherever I happen to be, I'm free to give tours. It might be Louisville, it might be Philadelphia, and hopefully, it might be Dayton.
