• Stephen Kemp: Martinique, we lived there for a year

• Natasha Lynch: Japan
• Christine Elliott: Cuba
• Tim Irvine: Definitely Nepal. They are such a loving, loyal people group who have the most spectacular backyard on earth - the Himalayas
• Marita Robson: Sri Lanka...the people have so little and are happy with what they do have. Children wearing sparkling white school uniforms hand washed in the river. No sign of prams or pushers, parents carry their children. Families walking along hand in hand. Valuable lessons 
• Jane Sue Redfearn: England
• Ursula Wall: India definitely. Three days on the ghats in Varanassi and I started reassessing my whole value system  
• Mel Twyman: Cambodia - reassessment of general values and outlook
• Leisa Wahlin: Egypt! What an appreciation & compassion for Arab & Muslim beliefs & community 
• Carol Varney: Belgium
• Connie B: Brazil
• Anne McLean: Morocco
• Katie Kuuskler: Antarctica. The least populated place with real values. Innocent, clean but not without a tough character
• Anita Jung: Egypt for the sheer grandeur of what man can achieve. Turkey the history, the scenery, a modern and an ancient country where people are immensely proud to live
• Jenny Hayes: India! Truly an amazing conundrum! I believe 'travel' changes you 
• Karen Woodland: Cambodia changed me. The people are so forgiving and ready to move on from the genocide of the past. They seem happy and resigned to their poor existence yet they live under a corrupt government that charges children to progress in school amongst other things. These are special people.
• Vicki Gabriel: India will change all your perceptions on life, love and living, it is amazing, intoxicating and life changing, do it!
• Florence Poon: Definitely Japan!
• Irene Sanders: Italia - just felt like I was meant to be there
