    *mods please lock if a thread like this exists*

    I know that most or all of us love to travel the world. Because of that I figure I'd create a thread in which we all could share stories and photos of places that we travelled to. Also, if we're going to a specific area like Vancouver someone from that area can share some places to go to. I hope it works.

    Florida
    Saskatchewan
    British Columbia
    Toronto

    Well, let's see. DO NOT go to Saskatchewan if you don't like giant flying horseflies OR wiggly fish.
    DONT go to Toronto unless you have business because their airport is nuts and the people want your money.
    DO go to Gatorland in Florida. Lotsa gators and snakes. And the occasional Flamingo...

    Hmm...most of my travelling the past 20 years has been rock and roll road trips, whether I was playing or following a band that was, but there's been a few actual vacation-type vacations and one extended stay that qualified as living somewhere for a little while...

    Furthest travelled from home - Calais, France
    Longest trip (not counting temporary residency in England) - 10 days, Dallas/Ft Worth area
    Wierdest trip - 1992, flew L.A. to Boston, stayed in MA a week, flew back to L.A., same afternoon turned around & flew to Houston for 3 days. (triangular trip would have cost more)
    Busiest trip - Hawaii, June 1971, one week. I was a singer in a performing group, and we had 2 shows a day for five days, one day off, three shows one day, a radio show on the way to the hotel from the airport and a TV taping on the way to the airport from the hotel. I didn't see much of Hawaii...
    Most fun trip - hard to say but probably a rock and roll trip that was me, my husband, my son and a buddy from England - drove from L.A. to Fresno to San Francisco to Denver (!) for shows, then back to L.A. with an overnight stay at the Grand Canyon. I could probably write a book about that trip alone!
    What Happens In Vegas Stays In Vegas trip - 1993, me, my husband and son, two friends from England and one from the Netherlands. Won't spill it all, but extreme daytime heat, copious amounts of alcohol, one Brit buddy hauling my pajama-clad then-13-year-old through a casino figuring he'd be a chick magnet :rolleyes:, and a bed mattress pushed halfway out a hotel room window were involved...
    Most relaxing trip - North Sonoma County, 1998. Nothing like the Wine Country, baby!
    Fantasy trip I dream of taking - Germany to visit friends, then Italy, Greece, Serbia, maybe stop in Ireland on the way back.
