Where have you been?
So, thought I'd through this one out to help start the Travel section:

------------------------------------------------------
1. Where are you from?
2. Where in the world have you been?
3. What has been your favourite place to visit or regularly go to?
4. Where haven't you been that you'd like to go to?
5. Where is your next holiday set up for?
------------------------------------------------------

I'll go first Big Grin

1. I'm from England, in the North-West area!
2. I've been lucky enough to travel a fair bit. Been to: America [Memphis], Ghana, Poland, Germany, France, Spain, Tunisia, Greece [Part of it anyway], Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and probably some other places I can't remember haha.
3. Honestly, despite all the places I've been, Edinburgh in Scotland is my favourite place. I have friends there an regularly visit, but the city is so nice and the people are amazing.
4. Canada or anywhere above the South in America. The South was lovely, and I had a great time, but I'd like to experience the northern end as well
5. Right now, I'm scheduled to go to Budapest in a few months time for a Stag Party, so I'm sure that'll be nice Laugh out load

RE: Where have you been?
I was born in North Carolina

Moved to Pearl Harbor and grew up in Hawaii until the age of 12

Moved to Oceanside California and lived there until the age of 14

Moved to Norfolk Virginia for 2 years and my parents got divorced.

Moved to this shit state of Arkansas after their divorce and have been stuck here ever since. Mostly because I've worked for the Fire Dept. for 23 years in the largest city in the state.


I've been to almost every state in the union with the exception of a few in the Northeast. The only states that I have not been to in the West is Oregon and Washington.

Most of our travels take us out West. We go to Colorado twice a year and I plan on retiring there in about 4 years (I'll be 50).

My bucket list of places to go used to be pretty large. I'd love to go to Ireland where most of my ancestors came from but I doubt I ever will. The one thing I will do when I retire is take a summer and take the Pacific Coast Hwy all the way from South to North and a bunch of side trips off of it when we go. Other than that we will settle down in Colorado and live out the rest of our lives.

I get to decide what my life looks like, not the other way around.

RE: Where have you been?
Twenty years in the USN, so 72 countries where I overnighted at least. A few more just passing through. Largest landmass I haven't been on yet is Greenland. Loved all of it. I grew up in Indiana and "big adventure" was visiting relatives in Missouri. I literally didn't see anything else but the three states that trip involved until I joined the Navy. I was in seven more states and three more countries within the first six months after boot camp.

Growing up with only a mother who could barely afford bills, you don't really have the luxury of travel.
