Where have you travel to this year?
« on: September 17, 2019, 11:12:12 AM »
Let's see, originally I was supposed to take a road trip to the West but time was a factor so I flew to CO and did my road trip from there.  I was at Yellowstone and surroundings and then came back to CO and did some sight seeing there.  It was nice and my first time.  Next time, I would not mind heading to CO and do more traveling from there.

What about you, where have travel this year?  How was it?

This year:
Brussels, Ghent, Amsterdam, Glasgow, Edinburg

To date:
Malaysia (2 trips), Singapore (4 trips), Taiwan (2 trips), China (over a dozen trips), HK (6 trips), Vietnam, Thailand (over a dozen trips), S. Korea (2 trips), Japan (3 trips), UK (4 trips), Belgium (3 trips), Poland, Ukraine, Mexico, Italy, Greece

The more you travel, the more you appreciate what you have here in the States. I don't consider domestic trips as travel trips...but I do need to travel more in the States.

Quest, yes you've been traveling.  Now do you travel for work or for enjoyment?  Also, you've been to quite a few Asian countries, which one is your favorite and why?

There are only four countries I've ever traveled to so far: Canada, French Guiana, Thailand and Laos.

Half of these are for work and I usually stay up to two weeks on these trips. Asia countries typically go above and beyond when they host guests so I tend to enjoy my work trips to Asia more. For non-work trips, I struggle with finding things to do beyond the 3rd day so the preferred length of stay at any particular location is 3 nights max. I am not sure if there is a favorite country but the vacation trips with family are more memorable. I am quite open when it comes to trying local food so if I'm there for work and I find the food worth returning, I'll consider a vacation trip there with my family. Sometimes, the new friends I make on some of these trips are good enough reasons to return. Ever tried haggis while in Scotland or raw chicken in Tokyo?  yum yum. I've had some of the best food while in China. I've also had the worst food in China! The sad truth about experiencing great food in Thailand and Vietnam... when you return back to the States, you can't find any restaurants worth comparing to.

Yuck! I don't think I can take haggis or raw chicken.  But wonderful you got experience a little taste before vacationing.  Lucky you!  But i'm thinking it must be tiresome sometimes always on the go...life in a hotel.

The jet lag is what makes it so tiresome. Try doing 4 countries in two weeks. Last year, I ran out of pages on my passport for entry/exit stamps. yikes.

Enjoyment also depends on the quality of hotel. If I'm on the move and there for a night only, I'm okay staying in cheap hotels as long as they are somewhat clean. Two or more nights, I need clean sheets and a good atmosphere. I also hate the feeling of eating alone. You can have the best dishes but if you're eating alone, you can't really enjoy it. Just yesterday, I was at the airport cafe and was grouped with another traveler to share a table. So awkward. The guy signed a bill for $70 breakfast, not knowing he paid for my meal as well, and rushed off to catch his flight.

traveling as i type!!!  ;D
