    If I could travel to one place in the world, it would be to Australia, because I want to snorkel the Great Barrier Reef before it’s too late. 🙂

    If I could travel one place in the world it would be Egypt. I would like to see the marvels there. Erosion and instability threaten them more and more. To see these things would be the best of the bucket list!

    I’d wanna go with you guys to Sweden or Norway! We could get into so much fun shit, and they have aquavit!

    I would travel to the Philippines because my parents were born there and I would like to see what it’s like to be completely immersed in a culture I only know from what I have experienced at home, from the stories I hear and things I see in the media.

    Oh man, this is tough.. I’ve hardly been anywhere…. But I would love to travel to England, mostly to see Stonehenge! 🙂 Then on to the rest of the world from there!!!

    If I could go anywhere in the world it would be the spice islands, because I love spices.

    There are so many places that I want to go it’s to hard to pick just one. I’d rather be surprised and have someone else plan it, that way I would go into it with no preconceived ideas and just enjoy the ride.

    So many choices….. If I had to pick one I’d start with Toronto :). I haven’t been home in almost 10 years.

    Nepal! To experience the sacredness of the land, the culture, the harshness but beauty of the landscape, and experience everything it has to offer.

  15. Katie June 16, 2014 Reply

    oh, so many amazing places to go!!
    I could travel my whole life and still be inspired to travel more
    traveling is the unfolding of life and wisdom and hope….

    If I could go one place now I guess I will say Tanzania,
    because I’ve always wanted to be familiar with the culture of East Africa, climb Kilimanjaro
    and also visit the beautiful waters of Zanzibar!!

    Bagdad. I’d love to visit the museum having read about Gertrude Bell and Freya Stark. Love to visit a friend who left Aleppo (because of war) and is now incommunicado in Bagdad. And most of all because I know that without the religious nuts, Iraq is a very cosmopolitan country and could be again. If it could get UNFUCKED.

    I have always wanted to see Nepal. We had an exchange student in my elementary school who was the kindest and most gentle person I had met and I saw photos of where they were from. I always believed the most beautiful things were found in Nepal. I must see them before I die.

  18. Josee June 17, 2014 Reply

    I would like to go to Bhutan and Nepal and pray with the monks.

  19. Elliot June 17, 2014 Reply

    I’d go again and again to Myanmar. The most beautiful and giving people id ever met. People were just happy to talk to you or even just smile. There is so much more to see there! And real adventure just to get anywhere. It takes it out if you physically and emotionally but it’s so rewarding.

  20. Lauren June 17, 2014 Reply

    Love this idea for a giveaway! Hope you’re adjusting back to life at home. If I could choose one place it would be JAPAN. I’m dying to go there someday. I even started to take Japanese language classes a few years ago for when I got to travel there! Unfortunately, I don’t remember a lot of it now, but if I were planning to go there I would start learning again! I love Japanese culture, would love to visit the natural settings, the temples, the cities, and all of the unique things there!

    I’d like to travel around the world and see everything. In fact I would like to spend my life traveling until I find a spot where I feel home.

    One place? Oh you are such cruel people for vegans! In this moment it is Mozambique, my plan is to volunteer at a Horse Safari company next year and the joy of it fills my brain with fizz!

    Egypt; because I’m fascinated by the pyramids and Pharos. I’d also love to try their vegetarian cuisine.

  26. George Blower June 17, 2014 Reply

    Madagascar on a marine conservation expedition. My time at ENP really has inspired me and found a passion for helping others in need, subsequently benefitting myself out of a feeling of doing good and enabling me to explore and travel the world at the same time. Being able to find a two-way relationship with the world, nature and it’s inhabitants is by far the greatest reward for me when travelling, and to be able to view the underwater world and help preserve it before it’s too late is on the top of the bucket list!

  27. Laura Templeton June 17, 2014 Reply

    If I could travel anywhere in this beautiful world, I would absolutely travel to the Sahara Desert. I would travel from Morocco to Egypt, take some southern detours.

    In its vastness, it is one of the most glorious, peaceful places on this planet. The idea of walking down a sand dune barefoot, staring up at the stars is something that strikes me to the core. I have depression and I just feel like if I ever go to the Sahara desert, it will help me piece together my journey.

    The Sahara desert is an infinite place of beauty. It is nothing and it is everything. And the sky would be eternal there.

    I would travel to Indonesia. Not only is it a beautiful place in terms of the God’s creation there, but also the people and culture of it is astounding. The old eastern ways of living offer a fuller life than what we experience in western civilizations. To learn from the way of life there would open my heart and my eyes to a deeper, more meaningful way of living.

  30. Lisa Dowell June 17, 2014 Reply

    I would travel to India. I want to meet the Eastern Yogis and learn from them! Also, to an Elephant sanctuary to help out. Volunteer my time 🙂

    I really want to travel to New Zealand. Have heard nothing but wonderful stories of the peoples and the places, but mostly the nature to get lost in!

  32. Mark Stewart June 17, 2014 Reply

    I would love to travel to any of the places Cody and Giselle have been too but most I would like to visit with a tribal tattoo artist To get some work done. I would love to visit the elephant nature preserve as I have a whole new appreciation for elephants now. And just how beautiful they are. I saw animals in a whole new world through the eyes of Cody and Giselle and I will never forget your travels as I have looked through thousands of pictures and read tons of blogs I wish I could Iunfuck the world in a wheelchair that would be an Adventure.

    I would travel Greece. They have a very rich history combined with amazing sights and beaches. I don’t think I could ever have enough!

  34. Desiree June 18, 2014 Reply

    I chose The Sierra Nevada Mountain range also known as The John Muir Trail. The John Muir is a long distance trail that is part of the Pacific Crest Trail which travels from the Mexico border and ends in British Columbia Canada. The PCT was built and founded by John Muir himself and it would be an honor for me to hike to portion of the trail named after him. I would like to hike the Sierra Nevada Mountain range also for the beauty of the landscape and the terrain. 🙂

    If I could travel just one place in the world, it would be Tibet. While I have been there before, it’s the one place that if you handed me a ticket right now, I would literally drop anything and everything to go.
    There is something magical about Tibet that I’ve never found anywhere else in the world. I found a sense of calm and peacefulness that I’ve held onto ever since. The people are the most gentle and kind you’ll find and I often myself daydreaming of returning to the rooftop of the world.

  36. Alex Navarrete June 18, 2014 Reply

    I would go to Iran or Pakistan. There are many different reasons, but really because I want to meet the people of each of those countries, get to know them, better understand their culture, and breakdown barriers and stereotypes that we the west, may have and vice versa, hopefully represent my country and values from a human element, not a politically influenced media source. I think what you two have done is great and I want so bad to unfuck the world!

    Cheers to you both!

    If I could travel the world, i think i could go anywhere i wanted. i would love to see the pyramids, stonehenge, the rainforest and all these other beautiful land marks before they disappear because i know for a fact they are not going to be here for very long due to the fact the way the world is going.. i would wait till i graduated from high school, save up some money and gather a few friends to travel with for a couple years then we would embark. we would most likely have like a team vote and a few pils before we embarked on our quest! i would love to see this beautiful world we call earth shine before it burns out and there is nothing but ash. I’m still young and i got to make the best of it.

  38. Taylor June 18, 2014 Reply

    If I could travel anywhere it would be Finland to see where my family came from. I would also like to see how a country of such small population can be so successfull with little poverty. Finland also has an amazing history that I would like to learn more about first hand.

  39. Cindy June 18, 2014 Reply

    Great idea guys!
    Personally… I have always wanted to go to Venice.
    The art, the food, the canals and architecture… I have a feeling I could fall in love with all that beauty.

  40. I love the whole Unfuck the World slogan!

    Anyway, it is my dream to travel to Antarctica. I want to see the beauty of the icebergs up close, but my main motivation is that I want to see the whales swimming freely and safely, WITHOUT anybody hunting them, WITHOUT anybody defying laws or getting around legal loopholes to carry out so-called research, WITHOUT anybody being forced to go down and defend them. I am super glad people are there to defend them, but they shouldn’t have to be defended in an internationally recognised whale sanctuary.

    Truth be told, it is my dream to follow the whales from Antarctica in the Southern Hemispheric summer, all the way up the coast of Australia to their calving waters where they give birth in winter. I want to document their entire journey. I don’t know if this would ever be possible, but damn I’d be honored to do it. Who knows, my dream may come true. 🙂

    hey Guys, great idea 🙂 been so wrapped up in stuff i didnt even know you were home!!!

    if i could travel anywhere in the world it would have the be the arctic circle!
    i would get to see the great Northern Lights from one of the best spots to view them. i would mee the Sami tribes who still live out there. go Whale watching, meet the huskies and the reindeer 🙂 and hopefully if i am a good boy….. see Santa Claus.

    This is an awesome giveaway. At this point, if I could travel anywhere in the world it would be to Mexico. I know it sounds weird, but growing up in the USA, I never got a chance to go there. Now, I hear so many amazing things about the country, and see so many gorgeous photos, I’d love to go and explore it myself!

  44. Alex June 20, 2014 Reply

    Super fun giveaway, love all the beautiful things from around the world and the great t-shirts!

    Oh, and if I could go anywhere in the world it would be Brazil… and for NOTHING to do with the World Cup!

  45. Oliver June 20, 2014 Reply

    Such a wonderful idea guys, seriously! Somewhat reaching a different level or better say adding a different layer to “sharing your experience”…
    Thinking about your question I would probably answer: Iceland. Without having set foot on the island before I sense this might be the place in the world where the “poetry” around me would be perfectly aligned with the poetry inside me. 🙂

    I would want to go to Thailand and visit the Thai Animal Sanctuary

    I have donated a few hundred dollars to this place because a couple of my favorite bloggers have written and told me about some of the aweful things that happen to animals especially dogs in this area and I would love to vacation at a place like this and help out… I dont believe in going to resorts I want to help animals because I could care less about the human race <3

    I sponsor a dog here already and would like to meet him someday. Been trying to save up and go but never happens.

    Great give away guys!

    If I could go anywhere in the world right this moment, I would definitely love to go to Oscars Cabin on Feemen island on beautiful Lac LaRonge, my reasoning behind this simple but exquisite place is Family… It was built by our grandpa just about 40 years ago it has been preserved and loved by my immediate family for almost over the past 20 of the 40 years. I love listening to the screaming eagal family that has blessed our family with yearly visits for years, I love watching the fish jump out of the crystal clear waters in our tiny “fished out” bay, I love swimming and catching crayfish at our swimming point… And watching my nephews face light up with amazement cause he thinks their baby lobsters, we release them back in the water to watch them swim away and crawl back under a rock, I love hearing the wild chickens doing their mating thumps on the earth as we lay in our tents, either falling asleep or rising in the early morning. Yup if I could go anywhere on this earth I’d go there… To Oscars Cabin!!!
