Just returned from 10 days in Istanbul Turkey.
Summer 2012 we visited Sleeping Bear Dunes National Seashore in Michigan and Grand Tetons & Yellowstone Wyoming, Gallitan in Montana, Colonial Williamsburg VA. Turkey in November and Mexico/Belize for Xmas.
I have visited Costa Rica many times over the decade, 35 and counting.
Though a main focus has been to take 3 weeks each year to explore a new country in Asia. I have enjoyed Thailand 5 trips, Simillian Islands, Vietnam (South 2 weeks) & (North 3 weeks), Cambodia (Angkor Wat), most of Laos ( 2 weeks), and the highlights of Burma-Myanmar (3 weeks). Most of these trips included renting a moto and going by the seat of my pants, and the majority of the time with no reservations unless at a Holiday time.
Recent trips since I got married in 2009, have included Morocco, Italy, France, Hawaii. We also enjoyed 3 weeks in Guatemala and also a solo trip to the Bay Islands Honduras for some scuba diving.
We also have enjoyed many US National Parks, mainly in the eastern half of the country, with a concentration on Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina and the Smokey/Appalachian mountains.
Summer 2012 has included Door County Wisconsin and Leland/Macinaw Michigan.
Activities include, trekking, hiking, river rafting, waterfall climbing, scuba diving, fishing, surfing, renting a motorcycle, photography, and the best part, international cuisine!

Always try to give something back in your travels, especially to developing countries, try to visit a orphanage, a NGO, a Charity, or give to the local house of faith or schools. They have simple needs that are very basic, whether it be buying at the local market pens/pencils, flip flops/shoes, backpacks/school bags/umbrellas (protect from heat and rains), soccer balls, toys, soap, even some fruit/veggies for the kitchen.
