Do you like to travel? Where do you want to go? Furthermore, the most important question for this topic.. What was the worst problem you encountered with your trips (health, medical, financial, and etc.)

Yes, I really love to travel and it is my favorite hobby. It has been important to me for the last 21 years of my life. My favorite countries so far are Samoa, Australia, New Zealand, Belize and the Seychelles. The cities that I have most enjoyed visiting are Sydney, San Francisco, Prague, Budapest, Lisbon, Salzburg and Dubrovnik. I love tropical islands and beaches, amazing views, superb architecture and native wildlife. I enjoy meeting the local people, attempting some of the language, finding out about their history and learning about their culture. I had some bad luck in Asia: on a boat between Sumatra and Malaysia I got really sick. I was ill with a high fever and vomiting for one week. Then a couple of weeks later in Malaysia I fell down an open drain a very hurt my leg. I was attacked on a lonely beach in the Maldives. Most of time I travel safely and I enjoy seeing amazing places in different countries.

I would like to add that I would love to go to South America to watch wildlife, see historic sites and meet the local people. It would be lovely to walk the Inca Trail and then see Machu Picchu.

Wow, You're a well-traveled person indeed. You're very fortunate to have visited those places. It's sad thought that you went through sickness during your visit in Asia, perhaps because of the water you drank? or just the environment perhaps? Would you say that you're still open to visiting Asia if given the chance again? =)

I love to travel,the farthest i went was Palawan,I travelled by plane to Palawan then went back to MAnila by ship.It was my very first time to try riding both type of transportaions.I was kinda wooried if i would feel dizzy and uncomforatble with the trip.I used to vomit alot when i was akid when we travel by land.Eventually i outgrew it but since it would be my very first time to ride that Plane and ship,i was really tensed.Good thing the whole trip turned out nice and very comfortable. If i had the money i would love to visit Hongkong Disneyland.I would bring my younger brother with me.

I love travelling and incidentely my job involves a lot of travelling and i am enjoying every bit of it. One of the place i would love to visit is Egypt, i live in India n i know i will need to save up a lot for that trip but im sure someday i will have saved up enough to visit egypt. the worst problem so far during my trip was that once while i was travelling with my friend in the night volvo bus, a co-passenger started touching/feeling her breats and even after tellin him to behave himself, the guy seated behind our seat started to touch her from the sides and it was disgusting and i just hated that.Since than i have only travelled by train.

Whoah, that's really a tough predicament to be in (your friend). She should have slapped him or reported him to someone. That guy deserved the humiliation. That certainly is one of the things I hate about traveling in public. There really are men who can't put their hands where they ought to be. Not to mention the pickpockets. Anyhow, it's good that those don't stop you from enjoying your travels. Thanks for sharing too.

I like to travel. Haven't been able to do any lately tho. We like to go to the mountains or to NY to visit our familys. The worst problem we had on one of our trips was - when we went to NY, we decided to come back through Ohio and see some things we never saw before. While in Ohio my husband had a kidney stone and ended up in a hospital somewhere in Amish country. They were really nice there but it meant that my daughter, son-in-law and I had to find a hotel and we had to stay over night while he was in the hospital - which we hadn't planned on doing. But all in all, it turned out OK and we saw some things we wouldn't have see otherwise.

The good thing about it was the fact that you guys were in a place which could facilitate the treatment of your husband. How would it have been if you were in a deserted place with no one to assist you guys. It's really good that everything went well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

I love to travel, though I'm afraid I've never been out of my own native state. I want to travel across my country. Mostly to see ancient things...ike sequoias, redwoods, and our own version of stonehenge, but also to attend rallies, festivals held for causes...in raising awareness, in promoting good things. To see people, to learn things, to be more educated about this country I live in as a whole. Mostly, I want to travel by foot...by bike, by scooter, or horse though. Since I'm most likely getting my scooter soon, I'll probably be beginning my travels that way...though I don't expect to go out of state until a few more years yet. So far, the greatests problems I've had during travel have been health and weather related. TERRIBLE storms and becoming so sick that I slept too much, etc.
