Where is the best place in the world you have been and why?
Mine has to be California - San Francisco - has anyone been on Ken's Cruiser? and L.A. (Universal Studios and the Chinese Theatre) I loved them both!

i really enjoyed california when i visted, but my personal faourite place is Italy- i just love the food, the language, the people, the temperature and the entire culture. I love the way that Florence and Venice are such unique cities, and Rome is fairly similar to every other big city, but then has these little touches that only the Italians can do. I could just never get bored of the place.

Iceland, sitting on the top of a hill, snow covered looking along a frozen river that seemed to still be gently flowing in parts, through a gap in the hillside toward a glacier. The sun was setting, and I sat and wrote till it was dark.

That was perfection.

Indeed it was, and I wrote one of my favourite poems while I was sitting there. We were in the middle of nowhere, this small hotel inadmist nature, if only I could go back.

Yeah Italy was good. Rome especially - shame about the pick-pockets though - we lost £300 cash and all my mum's credit cards. Turned out well in the end though - i got to spend 2 hours in the metro station with the FITTEST italian security guard and my mum got her cards back

i got that feeling when i went skiing, i woke early and went onto that balcony and looked out and it was just absalute silence. a whole week of being able to escape liek that- even if it was for only 5 minutes at a time- made me totally re-assess certain parts of my life. it is a truly unique experience that i think everyone should have the chance to appreciate in some form. sometimes you just need it.

I'm weighing up going skiing against going somewhere hot for a few weeks. Quite a difficult decision! Time for lots of self-reflection when you're skiing, I suppose.

Both are horrible, unless one of them is not very touristy?

solution- go skiing in the sun. you get the best tan ever in the snow + last year i didn't see a single cloud (well actually there was this little pathetic whisp on the last day), btu it snowed at night. best conditions i've ever been in. but i've never had a skiing holiday where i havem't coem back a bit brown (although i did have one that was blizzrdy for a couple of days which can be nasty if you lose your confidence).

i've just come back form the canary islands and i've decided i want a bit of winter sun every year! although next year i'll be having a really cold christmas with my brother in america.

yeah, you have to choose your ski resort carefully. there's nothing worse than a busy resot full of 5 year olds whizzing past you and rubbish slopes. you need to be able to hear absalute silence and feel like you have the entire alps to yourself to get that kind of contemplative experience.
