Travel, Adventures & General Chat

I just got back from another travel and I thought it would be nice to create a thread to tell your stories about the places you visited and which places you like/dislike. Maybe this could also be a place where you write about your planned trips so you can meet other MTF'ers in that place?




To kick off this was the trip I did last week.




And the places I visited so far.

That seems to be a very good thread. Congratulations!

When have you been to Bulgaria?

I've been on a "party" holiday to Sunny Beach & Nessebar (Black Sea) near Bourgas in august 2009.

And I've been to Sofia in October 2010 for a couple of days. I liked it very much.
I always bring home some foreign money and the national flag and I'll try to speak some basic words in their language. Although Cyrillic is hard for somebody who uses the Latin alphabet

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

Nice idea Javier.
Last trip for me was Serbia for the DC. Unfortunately didn't get to see much of Belgrade. We went to the center before doubles, but getting a taxi back was quite a hassle so we didn't want to risk anything for Sunday. Somehow we couldn't call the number with our Dutch phones. But for the rest of it we really enjoyed ourselves. The people are incredibly nice there, even at Macdonalds. We got to see more of Novi Beograd where the stadium was than the rest. Maybe we'll go back sometime in the summer period to see more of Serbia.

Where can I make such a travel map?

I've visited all of those countries except England ( I know I'm ashamed for that ) and Sweden.

But I think I'm going to London for a weekend this year! Thanks for checking in here Dunc.

I liked Belgrade too. Of course I saw more of it. Kalamegdan is a beautiful place to be

Tell me if you have plans to visit Bulgaria, again.

Did you learn any Bulgarian words. Tell me, writing them in Latin.

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

Here's my travel map, I really have a lot more countries to visit.
http://www.travbuddy.com/maps/6023635

For now I'm just always drawn more to different cities in my favorite countries, France and Germany. And I tend to go back to the places I love like Marseille and Paris.

I did count visits like going to a concert in Belgium or just for shopping, etc. I didn't add countries like Austria, Poland, Luxembourg, cause I visited them with my mother when I was very little and don't remember that. Maybe some bits and pieces, but usually I don't remember these countries at all.

Yeah Nessebar was more beautiful, Sunny Beach was the place to party. I visited Varna too, nice city too.

I don't know when I'm going back to Bulgaria. I need to visit Romania first and when I do, I'll take Bulgaria too

I only know like some words like;

dobar den, molla, kak se kasva, kazum se javier, ko se?, nez dravai (very important ) and obicham te.

Or talk about something else. Your presence here is enough And BTW I'm sure your ass isn't fat
