Hi All

Well I have been on TP for a while now so it's about time I introduced myself. My name is Dicken (If you hadn't already guessed) no it's not my last name before you ask. I currently live in Leeds in England - a wicked city with good clubs and friendly people but also with wonderful countryside nearby. Soon to be leaving though as I'm off to Oz in July. Don’t mean to follow the crowd but it's something I have wanted to do for quite a while now.

Here’s where I have been so far in my travels:

Scotland, Ireland, Wales, France, Spain, Morocco, Italy, Austria, Holland, Turkey, Greece, Canada, New Zealand, Oz (only for a few months), Dubai. Fave places so far: the Atlas Mountains, the great Canadian Lakes, Outback Australia and a mountain in SW Ireland.

So hello all, glad to be here!

Hi Dicken,

Sounds like you've alerady taken some nice trips.

You came all the way over to Canada and NEVER ventured South of the border? What's up with that :( .

Welcome Dicken! Sounds like you've had pretty good travel luck so far! I hope your trip to Oz turns out to be great!

Katie ;)

PS: Where in Canada did you go? (The area around the Great Lakes, I'm assuming from your post...but anywhere else?)

Hey People

OK I'll put my hands up I'll admit it, most of my travelling has been with my partents, not a bad thing when they pick up the bill! So I had no real choice where I went e.g. south of the border.
In Canada I was mostly on the Cape Hurd area and then Toronto and Niagara. I gotta go back some day, when I have earnt some pennies.
Oz is more a money making venture, but I'm sure it'll be a laff.
So what are your fave places guys
