    I've been to Ireland,

    England, and Germany on my own. And the Army has sent me to South Korea, Egypt, Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan. I think Ireland and England were the most beautiful places, I'd love to live in either one. But I had lots of fun and met lots of friends in South Korea. Kuwait, Iraq...

    Arizona--The Police State

    I just came back from a trip to Arizona to visit relatives.  It is a beautiful place, and the people are mostly nice.  The law enforcement there is another matter altogether. The instant you drive across the border you are photographed.  There are "photo...

    I'm at my happiest when I'm on a plane

    or in a new place. Unfortunately, I haven't been on a plane in two whole years, ever since I went to Mexico. I still remember the date... January 11, 2011 that we left. I was so excited and I'd thought about the trip for months, I still remember coming home and feeling so empty...

    I love to travel, money

    and time permitting but have little desire to go to Florida like most people here in the Northeast want to do in the winter. I've been to the Southwest, Great Lakes, Georgia and Alaska. But my real wish is to go to Great Britain to see the place where I was born.. Saving the...

    Giethoorn is called the 'Venice of the Netherlands' for about 7.5 km of canals run through the little village. Some 50 little wooden bridges span the canals. It was founded around 1230 when fugitives coming from the Mediterranian regions settled there. They found a lot of horns...

    Traveling is so fun to me.

    It doesn't even really matter to me where I go as long as it's some place that I've never been. I love to see different places and see how the people in those places live, how they get around, how they are transported, etc. I enjoy comparing and contesting the places I travel to...

    I would love to but I've never been on a plane

    and my parents don't really let me go anywhere especially my dad. If I ask him to hang out with friends it's an automatic no.

    I haven't travelled that much,

    mostly around Europe, but still - I was fascinated in every place, how different are towns (or cities), how different are people, how different was feeling of being in particular place... My dream is to go to Japan (Tokyo, Kyoto)... Hope to fulfill that dream once :)

    bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” - Mark Twain. “All travel has its advantages. If the passenger visits better countries, he may learn to improve his own. And if fortune carries him to worse, he may learn to enjoy it.” - Samuel Johnson

    Flying into Illinois today from Seattle.

    Tasmania -day One 28 March 2012

    Hobart is not a big city with about 250,000 people in a state where the total population is 500,000. This was immediately evident at the airport which in a word is quaint. It is some time since a stairway on the tarmac was the only means of egress from the plane and there was no...

    I am dying to see Ireland,

    Scotland, and Wales. All the pictures I've seen of those places are stunning. I'd love the scenery, looking at ruins, visiting castles, spending time in the pubs, and listening for hours to beautiful music. Just talking about it is making me want to take this trip soon :)
