Hi

Well i have had a few holiday romances in the past, which have not lasted!! But i did travel with an ex boyfriend once, which was an absolute disaster!!..we managed to stay together all through our trip, Califonia, Fiji, Australia, Thailand..but we fought most of the time..we broke up as soon as we got home..i saved up some money and headed to New York for 3 months single!! had a blast. Met a few guys but nothing serious..i still keep in touch with one guy who claims hes going to come to Ireland and visit but i know he wont.

Dx

Perhaps "flings" more appropriately describe my travel romances whilst on vacation. At the moment, I'm on an island in Thailand, and there are parties most nights at different venues. The best thing is the mixture of nationalities....

Ok, ok i've cheated. It's a copy and past job from an earlier post on a similar subject!

Met somebody in Munich at the train station when I was 14. The train we'd both been on (seperately, in different carriages) had been heavily delayed by an avalanche or some such in Austria. We got to Munich about 2.30am, long after my connection had left, and to a virtually deserted and closing station, and me not knowing anybody within maybe a 1000km radius.

I was trying to talk to the guy in the information window to sort out the next option (i was trying to get to Hoek v Holland) and change my ticket. Unfortunately, my German wasn't great and he was the only German who spoke not a word of English i've ever met , who was also annoyed at still being there several hours after he was supposed to have finished and really couldn't be arsked to deal with this foreign kid in front of him.

She was behind me in the queue, overheard us and came up partly to translate, and partly because she was Dutch and trying to make the same journey. After that, they closed the station and kicked us out into the Munich night time, and us 2 kids randomly wandered around Munich together trying to look brave and not picked up by the police, until the next morning and then travelled up together.

Things went downhill from there and we got engaged 4 years later
