where have you travelled?

my workmate has been bugging me to take a trip abroad with her, and is amazed that I have never been off the east coast of the US. aside from the fact that she is, obviously, a woman, and that means different arrangements would be necessary in my book, it's gotten me thinking about how much I have probably missed living a paycheck to paycheck existence for so long.

now I think have the means to take a trip, having gotten a degree and a new job, as long as it's not extravagant. not sure it's going to be with her (it's just a bit weird, though she's a cool gal). in fact, I'm pretty sure it's not. but suddenly I am dreaming about taking a trip to Europe, and maybe doing a mini bike tour. I have a friend in Lisbon who I know online through her artwork and my music that I've known for a couple of years who has invited me to stay there for a few days if I'd like. (and if her boyfriend doesn't mind!) meeting her would be great, and her boyfriend who is also a guitarist and shares similar music interests. I could see her artwork, and collect a pastel she made of me from a photo! (how cool is that?) maybe from there I could bike and tent through Portugal and Spain or something. I don't know, I'm a total babe in the woods over here!

I'd love to know about anyone's travel experiences, especially in Europe and especially if they involve biking. anyone?

Travel is great, you should make a place for it in your life.

What does that "different arrangements" b/c she is a woman mean? You mean, like, separate rooms?

So far I've traveled by bike:
USA: CA,OR,WA,CO,MT,WY,ID,SD,MN,WI,MI,OH,IN,PA,NJ,AZ,UT
Canada: BC, AB
Australia: Tasmania, Victoria
New Zealand: both islands

Most of my travels have been self-supported touring, carrying all the gear needed to camp, cook & ride for weeks/months at a time. Some of it has been in supported groups, where they carry your luggage and you either camp or stay in hotels. Some of it has been alone, some with friends, family, strangers met along the way.

I really want to ride in the mountains in France, Italy, Switzerland, Spain - maybe next year, funds don't permit right now, so I will settle for some more local travel this year.

Here are some journals in spain to get you started

Heh, "different arrangements." The tales my wife has told me about backpacking across Europe and staying in cheap hotels would make you realize that you won't have it that bad sharing accommodations with your co-worker.

I haven't been anywhere, really. I have been to California once for a day, lived in Ohio for a year, but otherwise haven't been out of Minnesota. Wait, I went to Cananda once just to say I had been there.

Going somewhere outside of the US seems like an impossible dream to me. My wife, though, has been all over the world, even lived in other parts of the world for substantial lengths of time, and a friend of mine has been to 26 countries (her job literally sends her to a different country twice a month--stinks to be her husband, I would think, who has to stay behind).

So, I just live my travels through my wife's stories. And some fun she had (before she met me)!

I've done quite a lot of traveling - I just love the sense of discovery of being somewhere I don't know at all, and trying to figure it out. My main piece of advice is to relax and not stress out if things don't work as you would expect. Also, try new foods, be curious, talk to people and smile a lot. If you can try to learn some of the local language (ideally more than just "four more beers"), it can often go a long way. A bike tour of Spain and Portugal sounds fantastic - I've wanted to do one in Germany for a long time!

I think you should go visit your friend in Lisbon. If they are able to help with your arrangements, take advantage of it and offer them the same should they want to come here. How many chances will you have to do something so cool? You've worked hard, you're in a great place in your life right now, enjoy the time! Imagine the things you will see there, places that a lot of us don't get to see. Oh and if you DO go, you have to promise to take a lot of pictures and share them with us. That way, we won't have to travel to Lisbon, you will be bringing Lisbon to us!

I've only been to Puerto Vallarta, Jamiaca, lots of trips to Colorado, Arizona, once to Florida. Hopefully going to New Jersey this year. Was invited to work at Washington DC to help with the health care reform but I chickened out. Didn't want to be away for 6 months.

Been invited by several forum members to stop by for a visit if I'm ever out their way. Maybe one year I'll start taking up those offers. Been wanting to meet few of the ladies here.

A crazy friend of mine wants to take a road trip in her Jeep. I don't know. She's kind of nuts but the temptation wavers in my face. If we go, I'm taking Shorty, that's for sure.

Yes! Visiting with someone who actually lives there is one of the best ways to experience any place.

Go. It's the stuff lives are made from.
Some of the most memorable riding of my life has been in Europe.
My faves so far: Limburg, Tuscany, French Pyrenees, and the North Sea coast.
Careful though. You may just end up wanting to move there. That's what happened to me.

And one more thing before bed: Travel isn't as hard as people seem to think it is. The most difficult thing is deciding you want to go - and assuming you've got the time and are willing to sacrifice some money from bike purchases, that's simply a matter of saying, "I'm going." The rest you can figure out on the way (or plan in advance... but that can be part of the fun).

The distances aren't that big - you can fly half-way across the world in less than a day. The biggest leap is psychological.

thanks everybody!

haha... as for "different arrangements", it's situational. I would not mind sharing a room with some women, but not her. we'd probably drink, and I get "vibes" from her at work (that I don't respond to, as we work too closely). that would ruin things. my Lisbon friend I would have no problems doing this with, even though I only know her from online. is that weird? anyway, the boyfriend should be around in her case, even if I'm dead wrong.

thanks for the guide valygrl!

thanks for the advice Siu and gbcb. yes, I believe you are right, knowing someone is the best way. hopefully I wouldn't impose if I were biking most of the time. and if I didn't keep asking for "four more beers" at her house. (she speaks english well, so I wouldn't have to learn that)

really getting the gears going, thinking about this...

oops, Metzinger posted while I typed...

good advice, especially as I personally know people who have moved afterwards. working in the medical field, I would have licensing and language issues to deal with, though. better stay out of England... that would cut my issues in half.

If you are getting those kind of vibes from your co worker, I'd high tail it outta there.

So many people carry cameras now. You might get a little tipsy and find yourself on You Tube!!

But seriously. If you can somehow make it to Lisbon, I don't see why not. You will get first hand tours, a warm place to stay and they will probably show you the best restaurants around!


Much better than going to a dive and getting sick....Blechh!

Make sure you bring them a nice gift from the States. Something they can't get over there.

I'll also echo Metzinger's caution about the danger of going places. I came to China for 6 months, 6 years ago.

I've done a little bit of traveling.....

I've spent time in Europe (Germany, France, Belgium), and I worked in Africa hauling Diamond Mining Equipment, I worked in Siberia out of Brotsk on a joint venture pipeline project as a contractor/equipment hauler, The North Slope of Alaska and NW Territories of Canada also as an equipment hauler for the oil/gas industry. Also, all 48 contiguous states and Hawaii.

I was an exchange student in semi-rural western Japan as a teenager and my wife spent some college time in Ecuador. Since, we've honeymooned in Australia and visited family in England, Norway, and Brazil. Domestically, we've hit all over CA (well, we live here), CO, OR, HI, WA, AK, PA, MD, DC MA, NH, NY, and a tiny bit of FL. We've had a great time wherever we've gone. Okay, Hawaii with my parents was a little stressful, but that had nothing to do with Hawaii... we love it.

Now that we have a wee one, we'll see where we go from here, but I do have a sister in France that we'd like to see and some friends in HK and Singapore, and we've always wanted to visit Canada. I also harbor a serious desire to return to Australia.

Oh yeah, and here's a list of all the airports I've been to and through: Link

I have been lucky that my job has allowed me to travel almost all over the US and the rest of the world. Been to pretty much everywhere in Europe, Asia and South America, not so much to Africa and the Middle East. End of the month I head off to: Barcelona, Marseille, Sevona, Naples, Palermo, Tunis, Palma De Mallorca on a cruise followed by a week of sailing in the Med for 2.5 weeks of vacation.

Traveling is great fun, get out there and enjoy the world

Travel is important, IMO

I have set foot (or wheels, at least) in every US state except, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticuit, Rhode Island, Delaware and North Dakota.
Been to Ontario and BC, Canada, and Ensenada Mexico.

I have been to England, Scotland, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, Norway.

We had been scheduled for a Med cruise (Navy) that would have taken us to Israel and Africa, but Israel chose that opportunity to invade Lebanon, so I watched Beirut burn for 6 months offshore.

I live in a world of backpackers and travellers

honestly the biggest (actually and only) regret I have in my life, NOW that I know. Is not taking off and travelling. I would love to go back to my early 20's and do a walkabout...

Message to anyone in their 20's...leave...go on a walk about...do it now...before life starts really happening...

When and if I have a kid, I would gladly see him travel for a few years before school.

Arg just thinking about this has me thinking of the stories...my best friend and best man travelled europe for 4 years. Going from bar to bar to work...after he got his masters. The stories he has, the things he has seen and done.

My ex-gf has similar stories, travelling school on the ocean, backpacking in the uk, train hopping in europe...travelling through africa...not to mention europe...

envy...definitely how I feel. I wish my parents hadn't been such home bodies and pushed me out of the country.

England, Wales, Mexico, Canada, France (barely), New Zealand, Australia and Fiji. New York, Maryland and pretty much the entire Western U.S. (E.g. Colorado and points west, including Hawaii).

My advice to the OP, travel some. Do not ignore the U.S. there is plenty to see here. Also if possible combine with other interests/contacts. All my travels outside the U.S. where I had to cross water involved Rugby, that was a good thing, met and spent time with locals on all those trips.

regret is often a great barometer of true value, and likewise it is purchases I regret more than experiences. thanks!

I might be able to travel in the US as part of my work, and keep my skills up to date as well. Hawaii sounds nice.
