I would like to visit Bali, a very popular destination, but still very attractive for me. I travel by plane twice a year or something.

How often do you travel by plane? Which countries would you like to visit?
I'd like to travel by plane, I really enjoy it, but the planes in my country are old and they aren't safe, so I rarely travel by plane. I'd like to visit the U.S.A as well as visit Europe.

I travel very little and when I do I go to visit my parents, I would like to travel all over the world and get to know many places like the pyramids of Egypt and the Chinese Wall.
