Fair enough and honestly my interests are a little vague but a key goal is being far enough away that work can't contact me, even in an emergency. Poke tongue | ;-P

Besides the three regions mentioned (still going through their respective visitor sites), I do want to visit the Museum of Failure. I enjoy any sort of quirky or out of the ordinary museum, districts, or shop. Honestly, anything that would make you stop, look at it and think to yourself "Hmm, what train of thought helped someone arrive at this?" even if it was simply the crazy train.

For example, I was in Paris a few years back and really enjoyed going this one part of the city where a bunch of artists has set up and were selling their pieces. Sort of like an open air farmer's market for art. When I go to art museums, I find myself drawn to the contemporary and modern art sections.

One of the biggest reasons I travel is to get an idea of how people from a completely different region and background view our world. I feel it helps to expand and mature my own worldview as well as serving to remind myself that we're all on this big ball whipping through space together.

Along side that I'd like to take in the culture, a taste of "what it means to be Swedish (or Danish)" if you would. As I mentioned, been researching and submitting applications to companies in Malmö, Stockholm, and Copenhagen (Dev/BA/PM/all around Problem Solver TM). So while trying to plan, I'm also trying to keep things flexible should the opportunity for interviews present itself.

I'm fortunate enough that I don't have anything preventing me from moving to another country to live and work. Been pondering it for a couple years and decided now is the time to move forward and pull the trigger. That said, this is a bit of a dry run for the region. If I can't see myself living there then it doesn't matter how great any theoretical job might be.

Unfortunately think Norway is off the list this go-around due to time constraints. Which sounds like a shame with how you describe it and from what I've seen. I'm an Eagle Scout and have spent months if not years of my life backpacking. Fortunately, my most recent goal is to visit at least one place I've never been to before each year... so maybe next year. Big Grin | :-D
