In 1983, at age 16, I travelled by myself to the Republic of South Africa on a Rotary exchange. Except for learning about the abhorrent apartheid racial policies, I knew very little about the country. For 4 weeks I lived with several families, attended high schools with English and African students, and discovered the unbelievable natural and cultural beauty of the nation and its people. Over 20 years later and I am still in touch with the friends I made on that trip.
I have been travelling all around the world, but my best journey memory is about the one I had while camping in southern France in 1998. We went to France by car and found a very lovely campsite in the province of Carqueranne, and met friendly people, and had amazing food! Once we went to the Isle of Porquerolles by bike and that Isle seemed like a little piece of paradise to me!!! We also visited different cities like Marseille, Cassis, Toulon, Carcassonne and many other places. We stayed for over two weeks and we managed to not spend a fortune at all! I would recommend this trip to anyone!
I’ve currently got over a million miles in my frequent flyer account. All my travels have been enjoyable from the standpoint of the places I’ve visited. Every place has its own unique character. Generally, coming across unexpected events or festivals has worked out well. For example, on one weekend trip to Seattle, it turned out that there was a great Salmon Days festival. In Leiden, I came across a dragon boat competition on one of the canals and had a great day there. With all the travelling over the years, it would be difficult to pick any one trip as ‘favourite’.
For me travel is associated with different annoyances. When returning to Italy after a trip to my home in Denver, there was a storm that shut down the East Coast. I was routed through San Francisco to get back to Europe. Extra travel time, but not so bad since I actually arrived home only a couple of hours later than expected. There have been other times when flights were cancelled or connections missed that delayed a trip for a day, and I’ve even been stuck in an airport overnight once in Chicago. I’ve had bags not arrive with me a few times. Luckily, they always catch up in a day or two.
I travel quite a lot but the journey I enjoyed most of all was to Brighton. I went there to study English and I thought it would be rather boring but it turned out to be quite funny. We studied in international groups with students from Italy, Spain, Sweden and Norway. They were all quite nice! We have lots of exciting activities like photo hunt or beach games. Of course we went on different tours and saw English castles. All in all, I had a fantastic time and get acquainted with my best friend there. Since then we always travel together.
I’m 26, and am passionate about travel. This summer I want to write a little book about my experiences and create a wish list for future trips. Actually, I’ve already been to quite a few places. In Italy I was throwing coins into Trevi Fountain at night, in Austria I saw the Olympic ski run from the steeple of a beautiful chapel. But the journey that left the most exciting impression was flying up at dawn in a hot-air balloon as I saw below the shadow of our balloon on the foothills, the Grand Canyon and also seeing a coyote cross the road in a magenta lightning storm as I drove back home at night.
