Travel Forums Introductions Greeting from hectic Southern California

Hello there everyone !!

let me start by introducing myself: my name is Mario and I was born and raised in Brazil. i lived there all the way to age 18. After that I moved to California pursuing that American Dream.. 7 years have passed and I have "conquered" somethings here, I have a normal/average life here. I have good friends, i go out and have fun when I can,But there is something missing. People around here live to work instead of work to live and most have no time for fun. I have been guilty of that as well. The California dream has faded for me. I decided to save up some money and just go traveling around the world with no looking back. I specially want to go to Europe, always dreamed about going there. Am I nuts? Am I alone here? Your feedback is appreciated.

thanks and nice to meet you guys!!

Maximum Bush?? LOL!!!!
I think we should call it this way since its hard to pronounce the original nickname....

Maximum Bush?!? I feel very insulted.. I live in the US and like most people around here we laugh at our current president. Anyhow I forgive you guys.. HAHAHa
