Hey that is a good question. And I liked reading the answers. As for me I got some new destination ideas through it too...
I suppose I would love to go to GALAPAGOS ISLAND - they have this amazing nature and ancient dragon-like creatures!
I love any "paradise like" destination...
Actually I also went to Mauritius Island before but know I have found out something horrific and I will never go again... :
Mauritius is regarded as a tropical paradise, and is a top destination for families, sun-seekers and honeymooners alike. Yet most people are unaware that there is a dark secret to this paradise island. Behind the lush foliage and white sandy beaches lie the Mauritius monkey farms, where thousands of monkeys are kept imprisoned and bred to produce babies to supply the international research industry. Further this island is seriously considering to pass a new law that will allow animal testing in Mauritius anything to attract cash... well I will not be spending my pounds there anymore...
It is a terrible cruel trade - the BUAV and other organisations have called upon tourists to do their part to free these animals.
I will therefor not travel to Mauritius anymore unless they stop this monkey business.
Hi, my first posting.
Me and the OH are lucky enough to be able to travel when we feel like it.
We usually go to SE Asia for 5 or 6 weeks as soon as the Peak Season drops off in February, and travel independently.
This year we're having a bit of a change, and in just over a week we're off to Nepal for 5 weeks.
So, if I could travel anywhere right now then it'd be Nepal.
Back to the Mekong river in Cambodia,
( Also a monkey story )
On my trip on the Mekong I got off the boat ? I know, I know
YOU NEVER EVER GET OFF THE BOAT ,!!!!!!!!!!
But I did.
Well after meeting Colonel Kurtz and having the standard pleasantries, thank God he didn't kill me, we opened the Casa Amigos tequila. We spent the entire night discussing the world politics, starting and stopping revolutions, assassinations, what to do if you haven't taken a good shit for a while, fine wine, drinking, eating, salsa dancing , toenail clipping and the art of cannibalism and it's effects on the human digestive system. You know , the real important stuff in life. ......???
I saw and heard things that very few humans have seen and lived to talk about.
We watched as a native circumcised a Monkey, for what reason, I don't know ?????
We were in amazement as we watched a snail crawl across the edge of straight razor.
Of course the Colonel is still a man so he had his bare breasted native women come and do the dance of a thousand organisms.
It was a dance like no other I have ever seen, the dancers squirmed and slithered around while covered in a multicolored glaze of goo. Their commingling body parts that were interested in nothing more than eroticism..........................
It was truly a psychedelic experience, against the light of the fire, or was it something the Colonel put in the beer chasers ?
Hummmm as I am still wondering ??????
Part of the evening was devoted to playing Parcheesi, thank God I'm old enough to remember Parcheesi, otherwise I might have been killed. ????? The good Colonel said when one is born death is inevitable so it just doesn't matter. ,,!!!
I don't remember going to bed or falling asleep ???
But I sure as HELL remember waking up to a CRAZY Fuckin Monkey that was Hell bent on gettin his rocks off.
Thank God I had my trusty Swiss army knife and was able to ward off his horney aggressions.
After I was able to stop that horney Monkey I was thinking maybe they should consider not circumcising Monkeys in the future .???
But just when I was thinking that I start hearing crazy Monkey Sex happening all over the compound. I didn't sleep well that night. But at some wee hour I finally did.
I woke up to the sound of revallee being played on a trumpet.
It was WAY TOO EARLY for this old dude to get up, especially after such a night.
After a SSS ( shit, shower & shave ) I met the Colonel at his breakfast nook where we enjoyed tea & crumpets and discussed the weather.
I left soon after that with a salute a hearty handshake and a peck on the cheek from
Colonel Walter E . Kurtz...
Whatever you're drinking, please order me a case. Thanks.
I think I would go on a cruise. They just sound like so much fun ... But I'm disabled, still live at home with my parents.
I'm new here, joined yesterday.. Looking for friends.
