Travelling often jolts us out of our comfort zone...

to the 9th traveller;)
I wrote you a message, accidentally pressed backspace, and it thus got deleted. So if you could refrain from judging people's posts and just rate the ones you disagree with poorly, including mine, we would all appreciate not having to read your normal-case flame. (I was simply writing my answer to the question asked in the forum title, not judging anyones' replys. This is never my intention. I might correct some wrong information, but I mean it to be as gentle and non-offensive as possible.) If you are just oddly concrete, then I mean: do not start a post in a thread like this with the word judging; It is too cryptic.

blue wave- I'm not sure what youre trying to say. I'm not trying to judge other peoples responses. "judging" (for the uninformed) is an a expression commonly used when making an observation about something.

I'm with you, Greg. It scares me to be in a strange place; I'm usually pretty put out and grumpy my first day, just trying to adjust. But then you find yourself adapting and changing, and the experience becomes incredible.

And I love finally being able to say: "Oh, Paris? Did you visit...." It makes you feel like part of the world at large. I love it. Even a bad travel experience (like fried everything in New Orleans!) becomes a better story with time. I remember every travel experience with fondness, although I know I had moments of utter frustration. Ah, how stories take on lives of their own...

Blue, I apologize for butting in here, but I think maybe you misinterpreted traveller9's comments...? I get the feeling he/she just wanted to say this forum is for all of us who dislike the 9 to 5. Sometimes e-mails and posts come across the wrong way, though. It's the nature of the medium. I don't think they meant you any offence... :)

Quoting traveller9

"judging" (for the uninformed) is an a expression commonly used when making an observation about something.

Judging, according to the dictionary, is as a verb: To form an opinion or evaluation. To act or decide as a judge.

Just so that you know the correct deffinition on the internet. An "observance" or an "inference" is an observation. It is not an expression when you say someone "judged" something.

I hope that's clear, now.

(BTW, my nickname is bluewaav, not blue, not blue wave, but bluewaav, or if that is too difficult for some people, then just refere to me as Steph.)
