i've been there.
Thought not. I AM THE TRAVELLING WINNER MAN.
was thinking of wales
Here's the view from the People's Study Hall. All those dots are people rehearsing for the celebration of Kim Jong-Un's announcement, which was announced from the same balcony a few days later:
I should probably upload my photos to Flickr instead of Facebook. I keep meaning to blog about the trip but keep getting distracted.
Alcohol was very cheap I remember
Or if we are including micro nations, Hutt River Province?
true story :)
i doubt people on here havent been to them though
England - few places
Scotland - few places
Spain - few places
Holland - Amsterdam
Canada - a few places
so yeah, i lose
i feel like ive travelled the world for some reason. probably friends stories and too many documentaries
Luxembourg, Haiti, Dominican Republic, France, Belguim, Cyprus, Egypt, Israel, Scotland, England and Wales. Not very well travelled really.
unless none of you uncultured swines have made it as far as liechtenstein or bulgaria
That's where it comes from.
I only go to alcohol related countries.
I've been there.
especially not when it's 42 degrees.
and win because it doesn't exist anymore.
Did anyone else ever go the Soviet Union, or was it just creaky?
i.e. moscow changing planes....but yeah i should put it down
And that's barely off the beaten track.
got the 2nd week free. It was at the same time and place the whole genocide/war stuff was going on.....BUT THE 2ND WEEK FREE!!!
I was gonna post this too.
did i tell you about when i took my girlfriend to the capital of bulgaria?
The punchline being ."yeah, he was a bit, and that Confucius was a twonk".
Nope, i wanted an action packed holiday.
I'd recommend it to anyone.
It's about as far as I've been. Will make it out of Europe one day.
pretty swell imho
been. Was possibly the best place I've been to.
JUst before that war two years ago
Yes sir. That is because my country has nothing.
You missed out on a hilarious anecdote about my dad totally peeving a Zambian taxi driver.
All because of quotesmash.
Were you born there?
I've kinda been into Lesotho too, but my passport doesn't show it and I had to leave pretty quickly. On an African theme, my suggestions are Zambia & Zimbabwe, although I reckon Zambia's pretty popular these days.
every valentines day is a valentines day massacre
The World Bank /IMF /WTO etc isn't big on letting African countries partake in secondary industries in case they start making money, so they have to export primary goods (cocoa beans) to Western factories to have the value added there by white people.
And no, I'm an elephant poacher.
are you down w/ the guys in bilderberg
They merely work down the cocoa mines, and I'll be damned if Amnesty can prove otherwise.
I'm down with Soderbergh, but builders get on my wick.
or is there anything you do not know?
Countries I've visited:
That's it. I'm not very well travelled.
I went there in my fifth year of university.
or Myanmar as it's also known is the most obscure one I've been to. I doubt no one else on here hasn't been though.
second best shot - Lichtenstein, not ocs its difficult to get to, but because it does not exactly draw the attention
...but they aren't in here yet, so...
Finland, Iceland, Mexico.
Been to all 3
that was good.
no watersports jokes please.
When you had yours do you think I had none Sardinia? Sardinia?
The freeeeedom that you waaaan[nuclear winter]
I don't get it.
:) Kuredu. Best island ever. Maybe.
that was real good
got the baseball cap
quite nice innit?
not just to go to a bazaar though, sounds a bit bizarre.
don't think I can afford to get there though, flights seem ridiculously expensive and long :(
I always went there via Thailand so shouldn't cost much more than a trip to Thailand. If flights from Thailand to Laos are expensive then I'm sure a bus/train to the border would be pretty cheap if you have the time for that.
via Bangkok, but were about £800ish and lasted 18-19 hours, or via mumbai and then bangkok for £650ish but lasted about 30 hours, which would make me want to kill myself. Either way, i couldn't afford to do it unless I can get work over Easter. Looks so amazing though, especially Luang Prabang :(
I live in the Falkland Islands. I doubt anyone else on the boards has been here.
I wonder how many of you have been to Finland. More of you should go there.
all the English-speaking locals sounded like Americans.
They also had a sweet propeller airplane hanging from the ceiling in Helsinki Airport, not sure if its there now though.
Finland is cold.
my hands are numb inside my gloves. Saw a woman fall pretty nasty today, was not nice. I handed her broken specs and said sorry. It's shit to see old people fall. An old man was killed near me a couple of weeks ago by a giant block of compacted snow falling off a tall building.
massive dissapointed at your new keyboard by the way.
Can you rip off the 'R' and staring using 'W's as a replacement?
was good. Was 25C (June).
except a bit colder. It was September and it seemed a bit dead.
cant remember her name exactly sorry
I LIVE there.
It was warm and stuff...
Sorry! I was looking after turtles, it was awesome.
Has anyone else?
Went to Manilla for work a few years ago. Apart from having to work it was great. Friendliest place I've ever been to.
where they wear hats on their feet and hamburgers eat people.
i actually haven't myself. :') I WANT TO WIN.
actually i can't imagine many disers going to vatican city. i went on pilgrimage. it was brilliant.
everybody look at me, because i'm the motherfucking pope
here is a more scientific way...I will post names of all the countries that I consider to be countries and then people will post under each if they have been there if there is only one person under each sub thread then that is someone who qualifies the OP question........I'll start with more obscure parts of the world (forgive spelling, im doing it from memory)
1-5) Eygpt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morrocco
(other than SA & Tanzania & maybe Kenya)
so i didnt miss any.........bizarely the next tranch of 5 might have been amongst the least visited - Tchad Mali Niger Mauritania and what used to be known as western sahara (but the latest best candidate for it as a nation is republic of sahal or something like that)
And people can ^this, not post underneath. If you're fussed.
put your country then without replying just this it if you've been there
list them individually
(If anyone else has this this)
If anyone else has this this
Did forget one though; Guatemala.
I went to shoplift in Libya
Then I got caught in Libya
Now I don't go back to Libya
this is why i shouldn't post here
On both counts, my mop-headed chum.
can't even remember why.
Went to see some extended family
is a province of indonesia... indonesia
is a part of Australia and I live here.
I expect some of you have been, but it's the best I have.
When it was the good guy to South Africa's bad guy = ages ago
all little islands in the caribbean. I bet none of you have been here. YESSS
I am the fucking lord.
Anyone been there....didnt come up on the page search... ive had a holiday there and madeira but i didnt search that one?
Also went to Panama and Tahiti when I was two, so not sure if that counts
does the airport count? it should ok djibouti who's been there
but still: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svalbard
but blatantly everyone's been to singapore. i have.
Just before the stampede on the bridge.
A fair bit after ol' Pol.
Falkland Islands and Israel.
Fann Mountains, Tajikistan
Republic of Karelia (federal subject of Russia but still pretty different http://www.culturaenmovimientobolivia.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/The-Natural-Landscapes-of-Karelia-and-Khizi.jpg)
