Canada
Mexico
Spain
Italy
Germany
The Netherlands
Belgium
Jamaica
Turks and Caicos (British territory)

I don't remember which other Caribbean spot my cruise ships stopped since we always missed a port, and the trips weren't about the ports anyway.

My favorites among the places I've been are Montreal, Frankfurt and Florence. The disclaimer with Italy is that I was there in January, so didn't have the possibly oppressive tourist crowds that can happen there.

Only one. Canada (Quebec City and Montreal) - I loved it though!

This summer, as most of you have probably figured out, I'm going to Cambodia. I'm so excited! And next Spring, if it works out (which it may not!), I could possibly be going to Barcelona.

I'm so jealous of all of you who have such long lists. I'm going to make it my goal to get my list half as long as that.

Yeah, it was pretty easy. We had a tuk tuk driver that took us around the whole time we were in Phnom Penh, and we felt like his adopted sisters The driver in Siem Reap, was not so flexible. I say flexible because for the driver in Phnom Penh we could negotiate the price, and he was pretty cool with whatever we decided. Our driver in Siem Reap (which is much more touristy) had set prices and would not budge.

We traveled from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap by bus (pretty cheap and easy.....but four hours on a bus is a bit of a pain); and from Siem Reap to Sihanoukville (the ridiculously laid back beach "town" by bus as well.

I know that some ppl rent bikes. This is an option, I don't recommend driving in Phnom Penh though (that place is crazy), driving/riding in other places should be pretty easy though. Generally, I recommend tuk tuks.

Cambodia is AWESOME! Second best trip I ever took. (First is Hawai'i)

Thanks, Kay! My cousin and I were/are trying to decide on a trip, I am really leaning towards India though. I want to see the Taj Mahal.

Mexico and Canada were just for day trips, so I didn't really experience those countries. I enjoyed all of them in different ways.
