Has anyone seen that programme-channel 2 i think-'Grown up Gappers'

It's on Thursday nights, 9.50pm-it's really good, each week it's a different person going to a different place, they follow the person around for-however long-3 months etc.

You really get to see how it affects them-the whole travelling experience-it makes me imagine what it'll be like while i'm travelling alone! then you see them go home and how their opinions and views change!-very fascinating programme indeed!-that's what i do with my Thursday nights!

Just went down and watched it :)

Its not bad, it definatly portrays well what its like just before you come home and when you get home. Crap basically.

I thought last night was pretty good...i get nervous and excited as they go through the motions, i think this one has been the best so far-i'm waiting for someone to go to Oz!!!

It must be crap coming home-just seeing how they are at the beginning-not knowing what they are doing and then when they come home they really want to stay and start considering all ways in which to do it-this is what i'm hoping for!! fingers crossed!

When i used to get home from long trips in the Navy i used to really look forward to getting home and seeing my family. The first night was always spent going out for a meal, having a few beers and chatting about my travels, etc. We generally had 3 or 4 weeks leave, and within a couple of days i'd be pacing about the living room totally bored. I would be on the phone with others who had been on the trip with me trying to organise a last minute holiday somewhere. i think our situation was strange though, because most people come home from their travels and have to work, whereas we came back from our travels to have time off work!
