^It's Anchorage. Kind of makes sense to remind of Vancouver, since they're both on the northern Pacific Ocean.

Picture from another angle I found online:

Dayum. If I asked a girl out there, we'd watch sunsets everyday <3. In parkas.

omg you should visit mexico. visit Baja if you're looking to experience the four seasons. We have it all there. The Yucatan Peninsula is also a great place to visit too!

Italy, Canada, and Australia are three of the top countries I want to visit someday. I'm interested in going to Italy for their food. I want to know what REAL ITALIAN SPAGHETTI tastes like and practice my rusty italian too

My aunt and her family went to Naples two summers ago and everybody said the food there was just so salty (She was in Italy for couple days I think), though you might have a better luck elsewhere.

If you live in New Hampshire, how could you have not been to Canada already? It'll take like 5 hours maximum to get to Montreal... On the other hand Australia sounds nice.

Australia does sound like a fascinating place to go and would really be amazing because so many cool PC members are from there :D

I've heard Australia is horrible in the summer, so if I ever do travel there, I'd want to be there in the wintertime. :(

The Australian wildlife/safari sounds incredible but the heat and deadly insects not so much. I'm not sure I'd survive living in Australia but I'd love to visit there sometime to take it all in.

I think that I'd be able to handle the heat, especially after living in Alabama which is basically an oven, but I could not handle the deadly insects. That is an immediate turn off for me because I am terrified of them D:

If you live in Northern hemisphere, you want to travel there in summer if you want Australian winter, though you probably knew that already.

Southern Australia should be bearable, as if you move further south it gets colder.

I've lived in Australia for a year and so far no deadly insect has gotten me (or else I wouldn't even be here today) :P Don't go there when it's summer though. The weather is extremely unforgiving. Everywhere you look, there is blue sky from horizon to horizon with not a hint of cloud to protect you from the blazing heat of the sun. Don't forget the exceptionally high UV rate. Going out without sunscreen is like meeting skin cancer. The best mistake you will ever make. ._. Spring, autumn and winter are awesome! Gets quite cold at night though.

Despite all that, Australia's an amazing and beautiful country. I'd love to go there once again. <3

I do wish I could go to Australia as well, because I heard that it's awesome (like Sydney, for example). And also because I hope I can meet some PokéCommunity friends as well (like Hikari10 and Narnia) if I happened to go there. Basically I want to meet everyone if I could.

If I went to Australia I'd only go to the parts that aren't too hot.

Guess I'm never going to Australia.

I think going to Australia during the wintertime (when it is summer in the US) is probably a good time to go...I mean, it's a great way to get away from the heat!

But if you were in the Netherlands you could just turn around and walk a few feet and be in another country.

I used to have a best friend that lived there. We went our seperate ways though... I do love their accents though. XD Anyway, Arizona is really hot. Sometimes it get's so hot that's like your being roasted in an oven. It's horrible. D:

...this thread goes too fast for me.

^I live near Arizona and yes, I understand the heat. I'm just glad the heat is ending this month and we'll be heading down to the low 90's slowly.

Low 90s.. ugh! That still sounds awful. NY is in the mid-60s today, I'm so coold. That's not bad though.. I really missed this sensation after many grueling days of 90-100 degree weather and insane humidity.

Today the high is 92 which is really hot once you add in the humidity that we have. It is so unbearable to the point where I don't even want to go outside for 5 minutes :\

Our winters here is like Fall for most of you guys. The least we can go is 20 degrees and that's it. Stupid desert weather. xD

I can't even remember the last time that is reached 20 degrees here. I know that it didn't happen last year and probably hasn't in 2 or 3 years because our winters have been so warm lately which is unfortunate.
