  • Where have you traveled?

    well, we are quite an international community, so, where have all the buffy forum members been and lived?

    make your own travel map: http://www.travbuddy.com/world-travel-map

    (and don't be afraid to make your list or put-off by mine! in my defense, my parents were in the airlines and i'm a bit of a travel whore. i'd love to know where other people have been!)

    also... if people do post here, we can make a forum-wide map of everyone's travels all together and see if we can fill up the majority of the map. with only me, thus far, we're already at 8% of the world's countries.

          lol. yeah. antarctica might be the one continent i won't make it to. it's just penguins, killer whales... and icy coldness. if i want to see penguins and shamu, i can go to sea world in my own hometown of sunny san diego.

          and the ontario update: http://www.travbuddy.com/widget_map_...php?id=3072655

          well, i've actually been to 5 of 7 continents already (4 if you consider kusadaşi, turkey to be in europe--13% of turkey is in europe). looks like i might need to head to oz sometime.

            Speaking of that I went to the Georgia Aquaruim (The Largest in the World Apparently) and Saw Penguins. I love Penguins and Beluga whales and Other Seas animals but Especially Penguins

                the funniest thing i ever saw in austria (besides mozartkugeln--"mozart balls") was a t-shirt saying that there are no kangaroos in austria. lmao. apparently some dimwitted tourists have mistaken austria for australia (yikes).

                most sea life just creeps me out. i'm completely terrified of crocodiles, alligators, sharks, narwhals, etc... the sobek temple in egypt (kom ombo) had a room full of mummified crocodiles... let's just say i was scared crapless and couldn't actually go in that room. i also used to be terrified of animatronic dinosaurs--i hid my face at the national history museum in london.

                well... so far, my awards to best (and favorite) graveyards go to: valley of the kings (thebes, egypt), el cementerio de la recoleta (buenos aires, argentina), petersfriedhof (salzburg, austria), the imperial crypt (vienna, austria), etc...

                and yes. i've been to a lot of graveyards. i'm kind of known for liking them (surprise, surprise).

                and an update due to litzie!: http://www.travbuddy.com/widget_map_...php?id=3072735

                wow. nice that you've lived in those places. i've only lived in san diego (same house) and ensenada.

                    whoa! veverka is at 10%! i'm truly impressed.

                    eastern europe is definitely next on my list. the czech republic (prague looks just gorgeous) and russia especially (ditto with st. petersburg and moscow).

                    the forum is now at 15%. http://www.travbuddy.com/widget_map_...php?id=3073002

                      I'm jealous of you all ... I love seeing other cultures and lands. But my list isn't very impressive at all.

                      I live in the Netherlands ... so yeah ... saw that country.

                      Belgium (no big cities, we went to the beach)
                      Germany (Berlin, the Eifel (2x), M?nster, Bad Bentheim)
                      Scotland (Edinburgh, Inverness -Beauly-, Glasgow)
                      Ireland (Connemara -Galway, Clifden-)
                      Italy (Rome)
                      Spain (Barcelona)
                      France (Paris)

                      This year or next year ... we are probably going to Prague and Vienna.
