Well, you could check out my profile, but going through that for everyone would be some work I admit!

I'm 27 going on 50

Don't think I could quote any place as being the 'worst'. That's just as hard as trying to quote the 'best' place I've ever been....

Welcome to TP Anela. 26 years old here so a decent amount older than you. Good luck though on finding some folks close to your age, there are plenty around on this sight.

I gotta go with Sam on the "worst place" thing though. I almost always have a good time when I travel, every place has something that makes it interesting at the very least, even if it doesn't seem that great.

The airport in Medano in the Phillipines got bombed while I was there(actually just before I arrived) so that was a bit of a turn off, but I'd still go back if someone decided to send me a plane ticket to go there...

Here's my address in case you want to send me one.. j/k

I'm 23, tall, red hair, enjoy music and long walks on the beach....

As for the worst, Ian and Sam hit the nail on the head...every place is a different experience and I would never turn down another trip to anywhere. (wink, wink ;) )

The worst weather-wise was Barcelona....in the middle of the worst heat wave and we walked up the hill to Parc Guell (which was beautiful) and the three of us almost fainted! We each drank a litre of water before we actually went in the park, and didn't stay long because of the heat. And the hostel we were staying in left much to be desired because of the heat and the close quarters with very odd people. I'd definately like to go back there at one point to re-experience it.

Cheers,
Katie ;)

I am 53. New Mexico is not known for its beaches, being a land locked state. In my travels - the worst place? That's tough. Some places I may not like much when I am there, but in looking back, usually find something about the place that I found worthwhile. One answer might be that over 20 years ago I was on two Caribbean cruises - typical seven day itneraries from Florida. I look back and find this a contrived way to travel - too much food shoved at you, cheap ass entertainment, and too many gift shops and tacky touristy stuff, although some of the islands did have something to say for them. I much prefer camping or hostelling. There - did you like my answer? Cheers.;)

I'm 44!

My worst place, that's very easy, there's only one bad place: Ban Phe in Thailand, the place from where you can sail to Koh Samet. Spent one night there 3 years ago, walked out of one "hotel", the cockroaches were about the size of kittens, and there weren't just one or 2 of them..... there were about 10 "litters" of them. As soon as we touched the bed or the socalled curtains the room was swarming with cockroaches. Ran out of that one, found another one, extremely noisy, the water didn't work, so we had to go to another room to wash hands and have a shower - which we just couldn't be bothered to. No places where we could get any food, went into a 7-11-style shop, bought chocolate, biscuits, beer and coca cola which we had for dinner that night. That was an experience I'll never forget, and I'll never again spend a night in Ban Phe, just to get to Koh Samet very early

Normally I can find something nice about any place I've been to, but this time, nope, there's nothing that comes to my mind LOL. Maybe also because my son was there, and he got really scared not only because of the cockroaches but the people as well.... weird, weird place.

I forgot; the worst place I've ever been to? That's easy - work! I come here every day!

Seriously, I can't think of one bad place....seriously!
