Being a freelancer, I can take my vacation off-season when air ticket prices are the lowest, but I can't be separated from my pets more than a few weeks, which limits my travels to once a year, about 20 days each time
I wandered around a bit in USA, Europe and Southeast Asia when I was (relatively) young. In my 40s, I visited national parks in Asia (Malaysia and Sri Lanka) and Central America (Costa Rica and Trinidad & Tobago). Recently I went to India 4 years in a row till 2008, and visited Africa for the first time, Namibia and Botswana, in 2009. In 2011, again to Africa, Uganda this time. Last year I visited Bolivia and Peru.
