hey... i should study, but i can only think bout my next trip, got at least 2 weeks, but ....u all might know what i mean...
i is great reading bout adventures and stuff of other people, shareing the same passion ( for travelling and for internet ;)
just wanted to say, is is great to exchnage info like that, and to see that i am by far not the only one who cant stay in only one place...
i havent travelled sooo much, but the more i do, the more i see, the farer i go, the worse it gets....
now after half a year living on the other side of the world, my family called me and asked if i am already homesick, but ...no
the only thing that i begin to miss is- since i qam alone here- the real good friends. i love meeting people, chatting, and stuff. interesting and so on, but sometimes u nee deople u know, and u can trust and u can tell eveything...
this is the only draw back while travelling
ah, and by the way, does some one share my opinion that travelling is a way of escaping? and i mean th elong travels, if u have no idea what to do in your life, study work....leave it....thats what i am doing, and i am fine with it....
may be i can get the wonderful job of one of the happy guide book writers ( i envie u , john from NY!!!)
so....all of u....enjoy every day...................
and go on writing...bout dont ask if it is good or not( or dont believe everything), if u shuld go or not....usually it depends on u and the situation and the people...
ok, i stop know, other wise i fill pages, i d be intersted i all of your thoughts- no ,atter if they are also as confused as mine ;)

Escape in the space and triumph of travelling? That would sound even more 'romantic'...

Well, i guess everyone does have their point of views when comes to travelling. Your statement reminds me of one common slogan in the radio station, which says,"Don't forget: it takes courage to be a refugee." (refugee travels a lot, in fact)

Just don't know why, travelling is the strongest wind ever in this century; ancient people travelled far to look for new continent and treasures; modernists may take it for numerous reasons with their ever-grown visions - it's obvious: travelling writing and literary; travel guides and books; photography and hotel management courses are hot now; pilgrimage route is booming; election for new 7 world-wonders; festivals and indigenous events are wide-spread and globalized...too many in fact.

So do I; with a world map in my bedroom and lots of travelling info in my computer storage... i would even to look for a custom-made ceiling-lamp to be designed in a heart of globe=> the picture is like this: the core would be a guy (metaphorically, that's me) at the centre of the lamp where you'll find his little heart would shine in the dimmest light in blue-purplish glow; the guy is within the globe of the Earth with countless hearts spread all over the Earth surface; i would like the designer to put 12 hearts on the lamp; each heart when it glows represent 1 month is over; with 12 hearts glow represents 1 year is at the end; when all the 12 hearts are shining, the guy at he centre would have his whole body shone with the strongest light!

That is my own light and the only one in this wold, (so that's my courage to drive me along)

That's a really cool idea Lee.
