Oz, Sorry would not let me add onto Jacob or Bash posts. Aus & Oz are both great places to visit. Enjoyed the GBR in the shark cage and Oz was truly amazing for it's natural beauty. Here are few more from our top 25 as we pick up our new cat end of Sept and enjoy next 3-5 yrs. circumnavigation
1) Chuuk or Truk Lagoon
the Mecca of wreck divers. Been there twice and both were awesome.
2) Wrangel Island in Russia
for the extreme cold and amazing wildlife.
3) Galalalagos Isles for the wildlife.
4) Easter Island for the stones
for the volcanic creations (some only accessible by 4 wheel
drive) Svalbard is also cold weather
stop. Was amazing visit in my official capacity. Sadly I retired today and with new cat coming am chomping at the bit to get out sailing wherever we feel like whenever we want. (as safely as possible)
6) Kiribati (first to see the sun)
7) French Polynesia
for the huge manta
rays. Makes you realize how small a human really is and that any scuba
diver that says they don't pee in their wetsuit when suddenly scared is a liar.
8) Mount Pelee' Martinique
Carib. Seems so eerily out of place but real.
9) The Med for it's history
, culture, food, and usually great people
We have 158 stops on our bucket list that we plan to hit over the 5 years but these are some of our top 25 favorites that were not on your list.
10) Cardiff (UK) so my lady can visit her mom. A smart sailor makes sure not to forget this one.
