Amsterdam is the city of my dreams. He is of course crazy and with an impossible rhythm. Something happens all the time, the events of the party parades. You can get a lot of new experience.
Name of the favourite place: Vancouver, Canada
Why I chose it? What made it so special?:
Simply love this city! Hard to choose but here are two of great parts of the city I enjoyed:
Gastown
Vancouver’s oldest part, grew from a single tavern founded in 1867. Today, the district retains its historic charm and independent spirit. Victorian architecture houses a thriving fashion scene, one-of-a-kind galleries and some of the best culinary fare there. A visit to Gastown should include a stroll along Water Street, where you’ll find a picture-perfect collection of old buildings, cobblestones, the Steam Clock, and vintage lampposts
Coal Harbour
Despite the fact that Coal Harbour is right downtown, it’s a surprisingly calm area, right on the water’s edge. The area starts at Canada Place and stretches west to Stanley Park.

Name of the „dream” place: Cornwall area, UK
Why I think it’s worth to see?:
Cornwall is a study in contrasts. It is charming and quaint, yet rugged and isolated. Located in the westernmost point of the UK, Cornwall is a peninsula that offers rocky cliffs overlooking the sea and golden sand beaches that are loved by tourists on the south.

Dubuque is where I grew up, and can remember going down to the river to see the Delta Queen when it came to town.
Sanibel/Captiva Island Florida comes to mind.
Ohh wait. I live there.
Who lives in "Paradise" don't need to visit dream places. 8)

Wait .... you have to :wink:
Paradise is home, and home is where the heart is. Must have read that somewhere.
Name of the favourite place: Udine, Italy
Why I chose it? What made it so special?:
Although the name of Udine is first mentioned only in 938 AD, it is believed that the city had been inhabited since Neolithic ages. Pretty old, uhh :D.
The city is a peaceful place, and one with much history which is very well reflected in several aspects of the city’s culture. One of the most beautiful squares in the city is the Piazza Della Libertà. Several important buildings and monuments are located here, including the Town Hall, the clock tower and various other important monuments.

Name of the „dream” place: Sevilla, Spain
Why I think it’s worth to see?:
Situated on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, Sevilla has a rich Moorish heritage, and used to be a prosperous port. The streets and squares treasure many constructions that have the World Heritage designation, and some are full of traditional culture, like Triana and La Macarena. Interesting that two Roman emperors were born there: Trajan and Adrian. The main monuments in town - the cathedral, the Reales Alcázares Palace and the General Archive of the Indies - have the UNESCO World Heritage designation. The Gothic cathedral stands in the white-washed Santa Cruz neighbourhood, built on the Almohad Great Mosque of Seville. Some of the Moorish elements still remain - the old minaret, which is the famous Giralda, and the Orange Tree Courtyard. Sevilla is a unique city not only for its culture and climate, but also for its flavours, as it is the world capital of the tapas. Go for it! :D

Georgia is one of the most beautifully weird and memorable places I've been to. I took a Tbilisi city tour by One way tour (highly recommend them) and spent an amazing week there. Architecture, nature, people, I will never forget any of these.
Name of the favourite place: Oxford, UK
Why I chose it? What made it so special?:
Oxford and Oxfordshire has a lot to offer to visitors and there is a reason why people return to the county again and again. Known as the city of dreaming spires, Oxford has been home to some of the greatest minds of the past few centuries. It was the „birthplace” of Alice in Wonderland, The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings. With the oldest English-language university in the world, has been the centre of scholarship for hundreds of years. This beautiful city inspires the imagination, evokes a sense of scholarship and incredible, multilayered history. And to put it simply, it is one my favourite places on earth. Whether you want to discover an ancient civilisation at a world famous museum, wander around some of the most famous landmarks in the UK or relax with an afternoon tea, you will find something to do for all occasions and all members of the family. It is a place that is not to be missed.

Name of the „dream” place: Pyramids of Giza, Cairo, Egypt
Why I think it’s worth to see?:
One of the most iconic and mysterious Seven Wonders of the Ancient World (and the only one still standing), the Pyramids of Giza—the Great Pyramid of Khufu, Pyramid of Khafre, and Pyramid of Menkaure—still live up to more than 4,000 years of hype. Seeing these three fourth-dynasty pyramids and their guardian Great Sphinx rising from the Giza Plateau is a must on any trip to Cairo (and the reason many travellers find themselves in Egypt).

Name of the favourite place: Costa da Caparica, Portugal
Why I chose it? What made it so special?:
Beach, surfing and city – what else? :D
Costa da Caparica is a lively and modern resort town that is adored by the Portuguese, but virtually unknown by foreign tourists. The coastline is simply stunning, and is famed for its vast sandy beach, powerful surfing seas and wonderful natural scenery, all of which is less than a 20-minute drive from central Lisbon.

Name of the „dream” place: Blagaj, Bosnia Herzegovina
Why I think it’s worth to see?:
For lovers of nature and discovery, Blagaj is to be added to your next list of destinations to discover in Europe. Some of you know the city of Mostar with its beautiful bridge. Blagaj is near Mostar and is worth to visit. The entire village will soon be listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
