Have you traveled in another country? If so, share your experience in another country. What did you learn in there. It can be either bad or good. It doesn't matter to me. I just want share the amazing and adventure experience. I went to Nicaragua first time in June for two weeks. I really enjoy it a lot because I learned more in there. I learned the culture, another language, and socialize with different people. Also I learned to be more appreciative what I have in here. I am looking forward to go there again to help people. It was difficult for me because of my weight and walking a lot in there made me worn out, but I did not give up and continue do what I was called to do. I saw skinny dogs everywhere, homeless people, rough road, uncontrolled traffic, police with big gun, house without windows, 1980's things including buses, and lack of education. There is more that I saw.. I was amazed how people can live in there. It was the best adventure I ever had.

I've gone to Canada, Mexico, England, Ireland and France. One surprise was that Ireland had palm trees. Go figure who knew? not me that's for sure. I love to travel and to see new places.

I've traveled almost my entire life. I've been to several countries in Europe, the Middle East, Canada, Mexico and the Bahamas. While they were all special in their own ways, the ones I enjoyed the most where to Great Britain. I don't think you could ever run out of things to do and see there, plus the countryside is beautiful.

[i]Right now me,hubby and three kids are here in the middle East-two of our kids were born here---that long.He's among those who choose to work outside the country.The country is not bad at all.Some might be thinking that this place is always hot,something with the word dessert,i have the same notion.But now i learned to love the weather (hot,humid and winter).The place....it's like second home.Actually my two younger kids though this is their home.Compared to my real home,there's no traffic,no air pollution.

I have been to Canada a couple times, every time for a hockey tournament so i was playing most of my time there but i did have some time to walk around and check it out. I have been to Montreal twice, and it is a beautiful city, very clean, and they have an underground mall which was pretty cool. Then i have been to Niagra which is extremely cold in the winter but it is very beautiful.

I got into vacation once in LA with my relatives. Been to Taipei, Kuala Lumpur, Sarawak and New Delhi due to some work related trips. I got to visit some suburbs in Sarawak and New Delhi and was fascinated with some of their cultural heritage. Except for the cultural aspect, LA, KL and Taipei were just another city life I've been trying to avoid with. I really love the countryside and wish I had more time.

When I was 12 we traveled to Honduras to visit my aunt and uncle. It was an amazing experience. We learned a lot of humility and learned different things about the culture. It was a beautiful country with beaches, mountains, jungles, ruins and more.

I really liked hearing about your time in Nicaragua. I had great adventures when I took a cheap flight to Cancun in Mexico and traveled down to Belize and Guatemala. I climbed Mayan ruins, walked through the jungle, found out about the history, tried learning some Spanish and watched some of the wildlife. I liked seeing the colorful clothes the Guatemalan people wear. I stayed in a tall thatched tree house. I went on a cave adventure that has me swimming into a cave, doing lots of climbing and I saw old broken pieces of Mayan property. Wow! I heard a jaguar calling near a Mayan ruin, that was exciting. I saw crocodiles in a river and I watched manatees in the sea from a boat. I would love to go to Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama on a trip.

Yes, I have. I am from Canada and I have traveled to the US and Mexico. I've been to the US many times, and been to Mexico 4 times. I love them both! I think some states are friendlier then others, but overall they have all been great experiences. I love Mexico, and not just our destination city(Mazatlan), but also in between. We drove there 3 of the 4 times and I loved to be able to see the small towns and cities on the way to Mazatlan. Our first time there we had some Mexican friends we made take us to one of these small places for a wedding, these people hardly knew us and were so friendly and embraced us as one of their own. It was so fun and fascinating to compare how they live to how we live.
