Chacun a son gout, as we say in bilingual Canada. It's interesting to
read about the places Ziners won't revisit. I think Las Vegas is
hilarious - but agree that two days is enough. And there are
definitely places that I don't care to go back to including Catania
(Sicily) and Cagliari (Sardinia). Three days in Hong Kong was enough
for my lifetime and I would definitely avoid Honolulu. Found the
service staff in hotels and restaurants to be rude (we went to a
movie to pass the time!), it's way too expensive and it has one of the
worst international airports around but is an unavoidable stop from
Canada to Oz. I'll probably never return to Aruba because the wind,
for which it is famous and attracts windsurfers, made me crazy.
There are also places I have travelled to, and while there, swore I'd never go back. Fez, Morocco (got a bad case of hives), Salzburg, Austria (as tacky as Las Vegas in its own way), Lucerne, Switzerland (deadly boring), Oaxaca, Mexico (absolutely could not see the charm and definitely did not like the food) are on the list but on second thought I might want to revisit to find out if was just me behaving badly.
On the other hand, there are places that are so memorable they need a second look. I'd place Dubrovnik, the Kathmandu Vally, Wells in England and Mexico City in this category. Lucy in Toronto (actually give me a plane ticket and I'd probably go anywhere)
