I live in Germany, have been to Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, GB, France, drove through Belgium when going to Britain, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Montenegro, Turkey. Does the JFK count as USA? And do Bermudas count on their own, as they are a colony of GB?

I didn`t hurry either. I first did a lot of things I wanted individually and then I returned back to Argentina at 35 years old and got married at 37 (I`d just turned 40 some weeks ago )

what have you visited in Holland? Were you one of those "I've seen 7 countries in 7 days-travellers", or did you take the time and see a lot?

Not. I am not that sort of traveller.

My brother used to live in Amsterdam and one of my best friends is from there so I`d been there twice in different trips. Spent about one week each time

I`d been one day in Rotterdam which I particularly didn`t like.

I`d been four times in Europe in different trips, some of them longer and other ones not so much and I spent 9 months in London in 2005 so I travelled quite extensively that last time. The same in 1990 where I landed there for the first time and spent 4 months

Re: Javi's Journeys&friends ; Travel, Adventures & General Chat

By the way for the ones who are interested.

I'm going to be away from MTF again for 1 1/2 week in the 3rd week of October. Gonna make another trip

This is the schedule, so members who live there maybe we can go hit the clubs over there!

Where have you traveled to? What experience was unforgettable? Where do you want to go to next? What places do you want to avoid? What holds your interest: nature, culture, beaches, partying? Share your stories.

Re: Travel thread

I'm 18 years old, so I think I've traveled a nice amount for someone my age. I must say that I couldn't care less about the 'cultural' and 'historical' parts of my trips. Everything that regards cultural places, museums, old churches, sculptures and so on, is pretty much bullshit in my eyes. Nature is okay as long as it's really amazing sights, not some garden with 250 year old trees that the dog of Henri the 14th crapped behind.

Crowded places, flashing neon lights, fancy hotels, skyscrapers, and shopping malls where you can get lost for weeks is generally what I live for. Give me New York or give me death

My trips:

2005: Paris, France + Brussels, Belgium + Amsterdam, Netherlands
First trip when I was 10, with my dad. Was very young so I got excited by everything and had a good time. Visited Disneyland, Efteling, and Walibi parks.

2007: Paris, France + London, England
Once again with my dad at 12 years old. Second time in Paris, got pretty damn bored. London was better, a pretty cool city, but still a little too European for my liking. Probably my least enjoyable trip.

2007: Saint Petersburg, Russia
12 years old, this time with my mom. Pretty cool city, but didn't quite blow my mind. Both my parents are from SPB so I have some relatives there.

2008: Detroit, Michigan, USA
Time of my life! A project at my school was electing students to go to Tamarack Camps in Detroit. It's a camp for Jewish teenagers, and every year a certain number of students go there. I got accepted and went for one month with my best friend and other Israeli People. Sick place

2008: Poland + Czech Republic + Slovakia
Time of my life #2! I was a part of the Israeli table tennis team that went on a series of competitions in Europe. Had a blast, unforgettable 2 weeks.

2009: Poland + Czech Republic + Slovakia
Time of my life #3! Same trip all over again, and just as awesome! Different venues but the same amounts of fun

2010: Tallin, Estonia
Time of my life #4! Another table tennis competition, this time only in Estonia. Gold medal in doubles and bronze in singles and mixed doubles


2011: Saint Petersburg, Russia
Time of my life #5! Second time in SPB, this time for yet another table tennis tournament. Played for the Israeli team and we bet the Russkies in Juniors

2012: New York City, New York, USA
Time of my life #6! Best city I've ever been in BY FAR!! Times square, Central Park absolutely blew my mind. But what made this trip legendary was of course, the US Open!
Went to see: Del Potro-Roddick (retirement match!), Murray-Cilic, Djokovic-Del Potro, Federer-Berdych, Ferrer-Tipsarevic, Djokovic-Ferrer, Berdych-Murray and Murray-Djokovic. Amazing


ROGER FEDERER
