    Why isn't there a travel thread? Seems like it should be one of the next additions. It's my favorite thing to do in life and there's nowhere on this site to really talk about it.

    agphoenix Everything goes.

    So let's talk. :)
    Where've you been, what ages et cetera et cetera.

    I'm proud to be a traveler. Been to over 30 countries. Unfortunately, a lot of the traveling was when I was young. I didn't look older or anything; I was just traveling with my parents at the time.

    'Adult' life; I've been to Mexico and either Brazil or Argentina :hmm: sorry. Was in the Middle East for a while. Was in the U.K. for a while and then in the U.S. for about a decade. Visited India...Taj Mahal was incredibly beautiful, except the city Agra, which was nasty. Egypt...pyramids not so exciting and the place was bustling with 2 layers of human beings if you can imagine that.

    So less of a traveler and more of a nomad I suppose! That ruins that for you huh? Presently, I'm living in Italy and do not wish to move again. Although I do want to go say hello to anyone in the Far East, and Australia, which may happen towards the end of the year if we can round up the funds.

    It was Brazil. Now you go!

    Weired I literally just made a thread about what I hate about Public transport. Not exactly the same but it is kind of about travel. As for travelling I'd really like to take a year out after University and Travel around the world. However I doubt I'll have the money for it...

    I could slap a travel forum under Lifestyle if enough people want one.

    Well, I am new to the forum, and I definitely in the same travel category as you people! Good for you. It is not that I don 't enjoy travel; I just don't like to pay for it and then be broke. Anyway, I have been to or through most of the contigous United States plus Hawaii several times plus Mexico several times plus Ontario, Canada, briefly.

    I would be interested to learn about other people's travel experiences, though. Nothing like living vicariously!

    Yes, ysabel, you're right, I meant travel forum. And Hybrix, that would be great if you added one. Count me in for a vote, obviously.

    And to respond to agphoenix, I'm currently in Ukraine, which is my 36th country. I've been all over Europe, and just finished going through eastern Africa and the Middle East. In a few weeks, I'm flying over to Bangkok and I'm doing the standard southeast Asian route.

    So, no, the nomad vs. traveler doesn't ruin it for me, it enhances it! I don't plan on going home until Christmas. Nomadic travel is the way to go! Where in Italy are you living, and where are you originally from?

    I'd like a travel forum too (it was part of my suggestion in the "forums you like to see" thread). I wish other more active members would want it though. ;)

    Oh, and if you make one, you can move the threads I linked above to fill it up :lol:.
