Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
At some point in my life I'd like to visit all 7 continents. I've completed the ones in the northern hemisphere and just need to visit the four in the southern. I've been to the Carribean but I don't count that as South America since the residents there don't consider themselves South American.
Right now though the top of my list is the Middle East...in particular Israel, Jordan, and the UAE
Next Monday I'm traveling to the US with my wife, my little son, my mother in law and my parents. It will be a 40 day trip, and we'll visit California (Los Angeles, San Diego, Yosemite and Sequoia NP), then we'll travel through Sierra Nevada, off to Yellowstone and Grand Teton. From there, we'll drive all the way to the east coast, through Chicago, short visit to New York and Washington. Great Smoky Mountains NP, and then Atlanta for 10 days (a convention that I must attend). From Atlanta, back to the west, we'll visit Amarillo, TX, and then Grand Canyon. Maybe also Arches NP or Mesa Verde NP. Las Vegas, and back to Los Angeles. Now it's the only place where I can think about traveling since we've been planning this trip for a long time. Unfortunately I won't be able to visit the forum so often, but will try to continue preparing for the gmat anyways.
Any advice what to visit on our way? What not to miss?
Cano, it looks as if you have a busy schedule in front of you! New York City should be a blast. I went there two months ago, and it was great. If you have time, a trip to New Orleans would also be nice. _________________

Hi bmillan, So far it's been a wonderful trip. In a couple of days we leave Atlanta to the west. Unfortunately, we plan to go quickly and New Orleans is too far south of our way (Atlanta to Amarillo, TX), so we'll skip it. But I've been there several years ago and really liked the french quarter, the music on the street, the steam boats, etc. Sad that I can't show it to my family though...
I made a pact with myself when I turned 17 that I would visit one new country for every birthday henceforth (not on my birthday, but for every year).
I am from India and I came to the US for my 18th birthday, and went to China for my 19th. Now for my 20th, I am going to England. I would eventually want to go on a giant Euro Trip (Graduation trip!! I am still a junior in college applying to the 2+2 program at HBS) and visit Timbuktu, Tibet and Rio De Janeiro. Maybe even Reykjavik.
Next year, mostly, I'll be going to Hungary and Egypt. :D :D
Cano - sounds like a great trip! Is there a particular reason you're going to Amarillo? I'm not overly familiar with Texas, but really enjoyed Austin and Dallas, if you have some extra time. I'm still exploring the west coast, so not much help there.
As for me, I really want to go to Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, Finland, Iceland, Peru, and Spain. Not many travels planned in my near future since I'm saving up vacation time for GMAT study and school visits, but I do plan on taking some time off before I start my MBA to do some traveling.
Am I the only one who would like to go to Thailand? (I'd go anywhere frankly). The pace of life and people are something I have not seen anywhere else - they seem to be contempt and very happy with what they have (however little it is). Super friendly too. _________________
I've heard that about Thailand. I've never been, but yes, would like to go there too. What you say about the people would fit for the Venezuelans as well. Super nice people, very open and welcoming, and happy with what they have. And a gorgeous country!
I have travelled a bit in Asia - India (native), UAE, Oman, Thailand , Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore besides covering China extensively - Beijing, Guangdong, Tibet, Hunan , Heibei, Harbin etc... I have been on short trips to Copenhagen , Budapest and Vienna. If I get admitted to a college of my choice by the end of this year , I will probably take six months off and back pack through South America...
