This will be my first time to leave the proximities of Asia. Say North America.
First long haul flight: a flight more than 6 hours, with connections. (18 hours)
First time to use a first class airline. (Cathay Pacific)
First time to have a vacation more than 10 days. (15 days)
Total opposite timezone. (13 hours difference)
First Anglophone country to visit (a country whose primary language is English)
If my budget permits, I would like also to visit its nearby cities in the East coast of the United States like Boston or Chicago. New Jersey is a bridge away from Lower Manhattan. San Francisco and Los Angeles in California deserve a dedicated trip since they are on the West coast.
