Why go anywhere if you've you've run out of motivation? Why grow old alone? In a very short period of time your savings will allow you MANY other choices than the empty drifting if not already. Settle into a homebase in one of your favorite places on earth with a loving companion for awhile at least until you heal that strained muscle. Meditate on other possible "missions" and "dreams" you may have had in some long almost forgotten period of your life. OR if increasing the numbers of countries you've been to really does matter to you then why not make a goal of breaking the 100 country mark since you have only 15 more to go?
AsiaBil, you said,

It is difficult for me to make a choice between Denmark and Sweden, but for readers they may have a priority, so this is my gift to someone. I can allow them to see, read, and experience a country they will never be able to visit.
Bill, travel is an addiction, moving is the addiction, to consider stopping is outside my realm of thinking and you speak as a tourist, not a traveler. I cannot expect a person who is not addicted to understand.
I have about 150 plus more countries to choose from, I am willing to allow readers to make the first true Nomad that goes from country to country.
I am not alone, I am with my friends, I talk daily over skype.com with my friends. I am not married, even if I returned to Indiana, I would not see my friends, they are all married and have no time. I was more lonely at home than away from home.
I will get married when I find the right person to marry,
Why do I need to say that comment?
I would hope somewhere over the rainbow, a class of students is reading this, the teacher says, this is a real opportunity for us. We can start voting and we can send him to the country we choose, and they all go vote and rig this in their favor.
My Mother once told me
"France is my dream country?"
My mother never went to France, but I know she traveled vicariously with me, this is the offer I make.
Mira, I do not care if you travel, I want to read about what you care about, you are a very good writer, I can feel the rumblings in your head, spit it out. Stop letting humility get in the way of a good story, spit it out.
As best I can tell, Papua New Guinea is covered by the Verizon Data Plan for my BlackBerry.
I tried one time to purchase a Satellite Connection, and do know how to rent one, this game becomes very expensive. I think I can go off the electrical grid, but to truly leave the West behind as the Beatles said, I need Satellite Access.
All is possible, just money.
The feeling of MOTION in my life is what TURNS ME ON and it's NOT limited to traveling. Need I remind you that I'd already been to over 30 states and 30 countries before you gave up drinking in your late 20s. In my mid 20s after being in Asia for 2+ years I KNEW I wanted nothing to do with aimless wandering as it does NOT give me the HIGH I get when I travel to places and regions I'd dreamed about going since I was a school kid. I'll be taking off again for 4 to 6 months after Chinese New Years 2010 in late January / early Feb. The northern part of Vietnam will be my first stop on the way to Burma where I've always wanted to go and haven't made it yet. Then either Western Nepal via Kathmandu and Muktinat, Mustang over to Ladakh and Leh then I will need to decide turning south along the western coast of India or north the southern Silk Road via northern Pakistan( depending on the situation ). But since you have requested votes I vote Brazilian beaches with lots of "eye candy" scenery where average people are in good shape like yourself and you can kick back and give your back a long rest.
