I lived in Paris, France for three years when dad was stationed there, it was great. I can remember playing in old bombed out german staff cars and such, as it was only 20 years after the war. The normandy beach and the graveyard was,,,unforgettable.

Oh yeah, some consider northern california a whole other world, so I'll throw that one in too.

Not too many places so far for me,

 

Ibiza

Cyprus

Florida (did the usual Disney thang and loved it).

Scotland quite a lot (my sis lives there).

I adore Cornwall and Devon too, spent many very happy childhood hols in Polperro and Torquay.

 

I'm hoping to do coast to coast USA one day and quite fancy Alaska.

 

There are too many places to see dammit !

 

My Dad was in the Merchant Navy and I'd love to visit a lot of his old haunts. Lots of stories, lots of places on my to do list.

I see that there are many people who have traveled extensively the past 10 years.

It's nice to know the other cultures.

 

I have 21 years and I come from travelers who are 18. I know Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil, Uruguay and Chile.

These are all countries that are adjacent to the Argentine border.

The places that I'd like to go are Las islas Malvinas (which is 700 miles from my house).

Italy, France and Germany.

Been a Truckdriver the last 15 years. I've seen most of Germany including much of the former GDR after the wall fell. Sweden, Norway, Austria, Licthenstein, Switzerland and Italy. Next year I'm going to Greenland. Yeah I know it's part of Denmark but it's considered overseas here.

 

People in all places were nice and really helpfull, except in some parts of the most Southern Germany where it seems ORDNUNG MUSS SEIN is still in order. No offense intended my German friends, most of you are really nice. Just a few cranky ones :biggrin:
