Travel the world...where have you been?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Just curious about where everyone has been in their lives. After all, we can't stay within the ocnfines of our countries boarders forever.

In my "short" 21 years I've been to;
New Orleans just recently
West Caribbean cruise that sailed out of New Orleans
New York about 2x or 3x visiting family
Hawaii when I was like 8 or 9 y/o
Florida to Walt Disney World at 7 y/o, what kid hasn't gone to see Mickey Mouse? :D
Quebec City on a school trip for my compulsory french class :rolleyes:
China my first trip out of the country when I was 4 y/o after my father passed away so you can imagine, I don't remember much

Not an extensive list but I hope to add more to it within the next 5 years after I finish school starting with Europe, Japan, then Australia.
Next month, I may be going to Detriot. Some friends down there are celebrating their youngest daughter's graduation in June. No baked goodies for them on that trip since I won't be allowed to bring food accross the boarder. No biggy.

So where has everyone else been?

Still more to go! :D

My sister from Anchorage is coming to visit next week and I hope to see her in Alaska in August myself! No cruise, land locked. I'll keep in touch if I go and perhaps we'll pass!

I've been across Canada twice the first time I was seven and my mom and I travelled to Montreal on Via Rail.
The last time was for the Cheftalk reunion in Montreal in '02, we went by greyhound. If you don't ever do anything else, take a greyhound across Canada it's a great experience. As for out of country travel, I've been to Washington State, ( Linden & Blaine ).

Travel

I was a real road warrior for 20+ years. I have been to about 35 states, and about 63 countries. This would include almost all of western Europe, Greece & Turkey, much of the middle East, about six countries in Africa, Australia & NZ.

I have also been to Pakistan, India & Nepal, and most of the countries and island nations stretching from Thailand to Korea. In the Americas I have been to Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Colombia, Ecuador, Brasil, Venezuela, Argentina, Peru, Chile, Paraguay.

This all ended a few years ago and I am now a humble woodworker and pepper merchant.

I spent 10 years in the merchant marine so I got to travel and got paid to do it :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

In Europe, all over Britain (well, I was born there) Norway, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Holland, Belgium, Spain, Greece, Turkey.
In Africa, Ghana and Nigeria on the west coast.
In the Middle East, Israel and Egypt.
In South America, Argentina, Colombia, Panama (is that South or central America?)
All over the Carribean
Mexico
Canada - Quebec, Montreal, St John (New Brunswick), BC
In the US, Too numerous to mention
In China, Hong Kong and Shanghai
I've probably missed a couple but that's close enough.
The great thing about travel is the stories you get to tell for the rest of your life.
