My Prefix can hold special moments forever

Surely, you will bring me when going abroad

Add a letter to my Infix

And you may just find your soulmate

My Suffix was formed nearly 4 decades ago

I believe it has something to do with tests

My whole is where I have been dreaming to go

OK, new try:

You want to go to

Cambridge

You'll probably bring a

Cam

to hold special moments.

If you add the letter

e to brid you might have found your bride

And for the suffix

I am again lost. I go with GE standing for genetic engineering.


I'll give it a try with

Cambodia

You'll probably bring a

Cam

to hold special moments.

If you add the letter

n to bod you get bond - Something you'd from with your soulmate.

And for the suffix

if seen as an acronym ia or maybe dia has a lot of possible interpretations, that roughly fit the riddle text, as for instance impact assessment for ia, or the drug information association for dia.

Doesn't fit as snug as I'd like, but worth a try I guess.

  • $\begingroup$ You have only 1 part correct, but I won't say which one :D $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 12 '18 at 13:36
  • $\begingroup$ At least. So i will look further. $\endgroup$ – Karsten Köpnick Sep 12 '18 at 13:41
  • $\begingroup$ I gave it a new guess. $\endgroup$ – Karsten Köpnick Sep 12 '18 at 13:54
  • $\begingroup$ Wow your new guess is correct but the suffix is not :) $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 12 '18 at 13:58
  • $\begingroup$ @KevinL - Yeah, thought as much. But I can't find anything that looks good for anything that could be a suffix here, even if overlapping. I have to give up and leave it for someone else to find. $\endgroup$ – Karsten Köpnick Sep 12 '18 at 14:31

Do you want to go to

MINDANAO?

My Prefix can hold special moments forever
Surely, you will bring me when going abroad

Your MIND can hold special moments forever.

Add a letter to my Infix

DAN; your soulmate could be DEAN? Or DANI?

My Suffix was formed nearly 4 decades ago
I believe it has something to do with tests

The NAO (National Audit Office) in the UK was formed in 1983, 35 years ago (nearly 4 decades!) and performs audit tests of various governmental organizations.

My whole is where I have been dreaming to go

The island of MINDANAO, in the Philippines!

You want to go to:

Cameroon

Prefix:

CAM = Camera/Camcorder

Infix:

ERO = Add a letter to get Eros, Roman God of love.

Suffix:

ON = Actually not sure how this fits the clue, probably an acronym for something.

You wanna go to-

Cambridge (although last time you wanted to go to oxford :P )

Prefix-

Cam, short for camera for capturing moments forever.

Infix-

brid, add an e it becomes bride, your future soulmate.

Suffix-

dge, Directorate of Government Examinations, it was formed in 1975, nearly 4 decades ago.

P.S. i just saw @Karsten also got most of the answer, guess i was a little late to the party, but i did figure it out myself.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Well Oxford is good but I like this one better I guess. All correct (gonna wait a day before accepting) :D $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 13 '18 at 4:08
  • $\begingroup$ ha ha, hope you get in.. they are both pretty good. $\endgroup$ – Shahriar Mahmud Sajid Sep 13 '18 at 4:10
  • $\begingroup$ I know. I wish I can :P $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 13 '18 at 4:10
  • $\begingroup$ This idea has already been answered in @KarstenKöpnick 's answer, unfortunately, apart from the suffix :\ $\endgroup$ – Feeds Sep 13 '18 at 4:21
  • $\begingroup$ yah, just saw that.. fun one nevertheless .. $\endgroup$ – Shahriar Mahmud Sajid Sep 13 '18 at 4:27

Do you dream to go to a

CAMPFIRE?

My Prefix can hold special moments forever
Surely, you will bring me when going abroad

CAM, short for camera.

Add a letter to my Infix
And you may just find your soulmate

Add the letter W to IF to get WIF and you may just find your soulmate (because you are short of another letter). Also, if you look at the moderated word now, it reads "campWIFrE" which is read with an r (your soulmate). This is a bit of a stretch, nevertheless, especially after having to swap the positions of I and F.

My Suffix was formed nearly 4 decades ago
I believe it has something to do with tests

IRE which refers to Northern Ireland, where many test cases took place between the $1960$-$70$s (for which more information on that can be found here)

My whole is where I have been dreaming to go

You want to go on a camp (whole) with a CAMPFIRE?
