Like the Random Things Discussion, but about travel and holidays ^_^

I just found this article:

http://www.nzherald....jectid=10693939

Quite amazing, what some people can do :mellow: Would you ever do something like that? :o Another girl of about 14 (but I could be wrong) attempted to boat around the world. Alone. She didn't get very far.


Sooo, talk anything travel related here :king:

I've been to Paris few years back and yeah,the Eiffel Tower is everyones obvious choice,but to me is not that appealing...looks good at night,though. For me the number one landmark is the Notre Dame Cathedral! You must see that..the architecture is really something else!! Also,the Catacombs are also something you don't wanna miss and the ticket is not that expensive..I think it's about 10 euros,but don't hold me to it.
So,yeah,Paris is nice and all that,but if by any chance you have spare time (and money :D ),go outside Paris and visit the Loire Valley!! Best part of France. :D

Crackthesky is Feli?!?!?! OMG. ^_^

I was supposed to go to Greece for a graduation trip and spend a week (the other week was touring the Mediterranean countries). Didn't work out that way -shrug-.
Eventually I'll make my way out there.

I've traveled to a few states in the US, and I've been to Ireland. I want to go back and I also want to study abroad! Because I'm a Spanish major I'll probably end up studying in either spain or somewhere in south america, but I want to travel to all of central/south america, the carribean (not really the Virgin Islands, but Cuba, the DR, Haiti, etc), europe, egypt...yeah. EVERYWHERE. :D
