mahmud has indicated that this thread is about Bangladesh

Let me introduce. I am 32 years young (not old!) from Bangladesh. I am travel lover. When I get a chance, I try to utilize it through traveling. In recent years I traveled India, Singapore, Malaysia & Thailand. I am cherishing a dream to travel European countries. But it is a matter of huge financial involvement. So, I am trying to deposit some money for that. Do not know when I would have enough money to go out for Europe.

My another problem is that I do not get enough time to travel. Now I am doing job with a private company. They are very tight about holidays. So, despite of my whole hearted want, I can not go out.

I also read travel books, magazines & travel articles and watch travel related programs on T.V . Some time, my parents say : Seems you read travel, eat Travel also.

Anyway, as it is not possible to get enough time now, I decided to travel frequently after taking retirement from my job.

Hi Mahmud,

You seem to be suffering from the same problem that most of us here suffer from:

1. Not enough money
2. Not enough time

Welcome to the club!

Thank you all very much to show interest towards me.

Wocca : I will inform more details when get chance.

Travel100 : Thanks. I live in Dhaka & doing job in a trading company. After complete of the MBA I joined this company. I am living with my wife & only son. Yes, the monsoon rain just started with storm. It will continue 2 months.

Isadora : In 2005 we have 66 days holiday (Including weekly holiday : Friday). Bankers enjoys extra 2 days holidays not 10 days.

Regarding my recent Thailand visit, will get back short time.

At last I invite you all to travel Bangladesh, a very nice, safe & cheap country. I will inform more details through another post later on.
