Who Travels?

Recommended Posts

In my near future I am going to have the opportunity to go to Japan for 2 years, and possibly more during that time. Who has had the opportunity to travel the world? I live in New York and have been to Canada/Mexico and parts of Europe.


Anybody care to share?

"Parts of Europe" (Sooooooo 'Murican... :P )

Care to elaborate on that one? :)


I live in Denmark and I've been to

2 times to London, England

Cap d'agde, France (South France)

Luxembourg, Luxembourg

Berlin, Germany

Oslo, Norway

Camping somewhere in the woods, Sweden

Washington D.C / New York / Philadelphia, 'Murica

Amsterdam, The Netherlands


In the future I'd like to go back to the US with a couple of my friends for a month and just travel around the country.

I hope you aren't tall. When I was in Japan for a bit, I was too tall for everything. :)

I've traveled a bit in my time.  Always for pleasure though, never for business.

I live in California, but have traveled to about half of the western US, Hawaii and New York.  A few parts of Canada (Vancouver, Calgary) and Ensenada in Mexico.

Further out I've been to Paris , Florence, Rome, Venice, and Lucerne.  Wasn't a huge fan of Paris despite always wanting to visit there when I was a child, but the rest of the locations were great and people in Italy are very friendly despite the crime.

Recently I've been to London, Edinburgh, and Dublin.  Scotland was by far my favorite, but the trip overall was excellent and I recommend it strongly.

My last trip was a tour group (I'm not a fan of tour groups and do not endorse them, but this was a unique case) to Turkey and I had a fairly good time despite some poor traveling arrangements.  We drove all over the country, hitting stops such as Istanbul, Ankara, Cannakale, etc.  Great country and a pretty favorable exchange rate for the US right now.  Also before anyone asks it was completely safe.

I'm jealous of you going to Japan though.  I wanted to go last year, but the prices were too high to justify the cost.  I hope to go in the near future.

Oh I guess in retrospect I've also traveled to Manila and a number of the smaller islands (Butuan, Tagaytay).  It's funny that you tend to leave off places you've lived in as travel destinations.  Perspective is a fascinating thing.

I agree.  Ephesus and Pamukkale were highlights of the trip.  I was stunned overall at how well preserved their ruins are compared to other parts of the world.  Well except Troy and the Temple of Artemis.  =(

I've never understood people's fascination with the simple concept of traveling. From my computer I can find pictures and videos of any sights worth seeing, as well as explore artificial worlds designed to be far more interesting than anything nature has ever produced.


That being said, if I was going to go somewhere, it would definitely be Japan. Hope you have fun.

It just allows you to create your own experience and expose you to different cultures and living. Pictures can only provide you with so much and it can be hard to grasp unless you actually do it. I just got to japan 3 days ago and there are already so many differences with everything here.

Traveling was one of the best experiences of my life. There is so much more to culture than what you see on the internet. Nothing on the internet will compare to what I've witnessed by visiting so many countries.
