Take the night bus from Montreal to New-York for a one day trip. Went there to see a painting exposition (El Greco). Meet a girl from France in the Bus and spend 12 hours with her in New-York and get back home after that... Paris its'nt the city of love, New-York is !!! ;-)

I'm planning on taking the night bus from Montreal to New York very soon. Will it be the "love bus" for me too? Stay tuned...

What's the definition of "romance"? I fall in "lust" quite often while traveling, but never in "love". Is lust romance??

I met my first boyfriend while he was visiting my country back in 1988 -Uruguay. He's American. I was 16 and he was 18. We really fell in love as our relationship lasted 5 years. In those times we only had letters and telephone to comunicate, so you can imagine how difficult it was. He came back to the USA but we visited each other from time to time. It was the most romatic and aching experiece of my life. We got engaged and everything, but at 21 we had changed so much since we first met that our marriage would have failed. Now Im married to a Croatian! and I havent heard anything from my first American boyfriend...

I'm not sure what this thread is doing in the Travel Photography forum ... perhaps someone has some spontaneous photo's to share with the world

I agree but to add something on this: everyone hopes to be in these two movies : Before Sunrise and Before Sunset; a guy from USA and a girl from France...promise to meet again after 9 years..they kissed before they left and went back to their normal life and after 9 years, the french girl, who got married met again with this guy at a bookstore they seemed to fall in love again.

2 movies with the same characters, same producer and director, but you'll see they face changes in their appereance and idealogy. In Before Sunset, the actor and the actresses are expressing THEIR OWN THOUGHTS in the movie.

To all TP's members in this thread, watch these 2 films and enjoy your memory.

Good Luck,
Lee

hmm...lets see...no I never met the love of my life while in another country, but i did learn alot. Most importantly...I have learned that if you want to learn the language get a bf/gf from the country you are living in. I went out with an Italian (3 or 4 times)while I was studying abroad in Rome...and my Italian must have improved over 50% in those 3 days....not romantic, but true

Years ago, about a month after finishing high school, I met this girl on the overnight train from Sydney to Byron Bay (Lismore actually, then a bus to the Bay).

Well, I was with a few mates, we'd had a few bevvies, and I started chatting up this girl who's name was Heidi. Well, she was up for anything, and after a bit of low key action she wanted me to go into the ladies loo with her and give her one!

I declined, as I'm not into public toilets (leave that one to George Michael); particularly toilets on trains.

But we got up to some hanky panky under my mates school blanket (which he still proudly displays to this day) and, after a number of complaints from fellow travellers, we got kicked off the train at Grafton in the middle of the night. I slept on a seat on the platform, and when I woke up she'd gone. Caught the next train in the morning and met up with my mates.

I was young and stupid at the time.... and I'm actually wondering why I'm telling you this.

How has this thread managed to stay under "travel photography" for so long? Is there a connection that I'm missing?

I think James is referring to the old "North Coast Mail" a regular party train, which usually didn't have a conductor on board. Most of the compartments had pictures of rural New South Wales scenes on the walls.

BTW James: Did you take any black and white or polaroid pictures on that journey?
